How Platelet Rich Plasma Works

At times, acne goes away without a scratch, but for others, scars can be the result of years of dreadful, blemished skin. A break in the pores can create deep lesions where skin attempts to repair by forming unattractive collagen fibers. Nothing can cover up these embarrassing scars, leaving the exposed face of an acne victim.

To smooth acne scars, Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a successful new method that corrects and rejuvenates the skin. How does it work? The platelets found in blood contain growth factors that rebuild the skin.

To access these healing platelets, a small blood sample is taken from the patient’s arm. The platelets in the blood are then weeded out from the white and red blood cells. This increases their concentration, and then, this serum is injected back into the acne scar areas using microneedling.

What You Can Expect with PRP Treatments

The PRP procedure takes approximately 30 minutes and requires no downtime, so you can return to your normal routine after the injections. Very little pain is involved in this safe process. Although, you may experience slight swelling and bruising.

While results can be seen immediately, the most dramatic results can take up to three weeks. You may need more than one treatment 4 weeks apart, depending on the scar severity. Since it’s your own blood being injected into your skin, there is no risk for allergic reactions.

PRP Benefits at Ederra Bella

For acne scar treatment, Platelet Rich Plasma offers a multitude of benefits for your overall skin.  Your own blood being injected back into your skin causes a natural healing process that removes acne scars all while regenerating the growth of collagen and elastin, the key ingredients to healthy skin.

PRP smooths the scars and plumps the skin, rejuvenating it back to its original healthy state. Your embarrassing acne scars will be replaced with soft, clear skin as well as your regained self-esteem.
