PRP treatments for acne scars are one of the most satisfying treatments we offer here at Hair and Skin Science.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatments are incredibly popular for treating a range of common conditions including acne scarring, wrinkles and fine lines, skin discolouration and the many signs of ageing.
As acne scars can have a genuinely detrimental effect on your quality of life and confidence, we are only too happy to help address them with this popular treatment.
How can Hair and Skin Science help?
PRP for acne scars uses a similar process to the PRP facial, or vampire facial. It uses the healing power of your own blood to deliver everything your skin needs to heal.
The treatment is thought to be very effective at treating acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines, sagging skin, discoloured skin and hyperpigmentation. It’s an exceptionally popular treatment!
Part of that popularity is how accessible it is. PRP for acne scars uses no surgery, no medication, is completely non-invasive and requires no recovery.
Appointments last around 45 minutes and you can be up, about and going about your day immediately afterwards!
PRP injections for acne scars uses a tried and tested procedure that utilises the healing power of your own blood to deliver growth factors directly to affected areas of the skin.
It works a little something like this:
We draw a small amount of blood, like a blood test. We process the blood to concentrate the parts we want, the blood plasma.
Blood plasma contains lots of healing potential and is the part of the blood your body uses for healing and regeneration.
Those growth factors are believed to help promote collagen and elastin growth, which both help the skin.
We concentrate that healing potential into a special solution and inject it into the affected area using a special microneedler.
Once complete, we can apply a red LED light into the skin to help promote healing, to help minimise the redness and inflammation.
After the red LED, there should be minor signs you had a treatment done and that’s usually slight redness.
This is great news, as you could have a PRP injection for acne scars in your lunch hour, before or after work and go about your day.
PRP injection for acne scars is a very minimal and non-invasive treatment. It requires no surgery, no medication, no chemicals and uses nothing except your own blood plasma.
If you are currently on any type of medication that affects the blood, let us know when booking your appointment so we can check everything is safe.
As a precaution we do not recommend PRP if you’re pregnant.
After your PRP injection for acne scars, you may feel a tingling sensation or the area may be sensitive. This is rare and passes quickly.
We recommend minimising exposure to sunlight and the use the products Hair and Skin Science provide to help recover your skin and begin the regeneration process.
We will provide full aftercare guidance at your appointment.
