Acne is something many of us dealt with in our teens and unfortunately for some, the scars left from acne remain long after high school.
No amount of makeup or skincare can remove the pock marks of acne scars, making it something many people feel they’re stuck with forever.
Thankfully there are treatments available to manage acne scars. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections use your body's own healing properties to stimulate collagen and elastin directly into the scarred areas to smooth and restore areas on the face and neck with acne scars.
By injecting PRP into acne scars, your body starts repairing the damage done years ago resulting in improved skin texture and confidence.
PRP injections use your own body’s growth factors and growth factor stimulators to improve the appearance of acne scars.
Platelet rich plasma contains nutrients and proteins to stimulate collagen and elastin production – the scaffolding that supports youthful, smooth skin. The great thing about PRP injections is the treatments use your own blood making it a natural solution for acne scars.
Injecting PRP into places like scars from acne allows for powerful healing to take place in exactly the places you need it to.
PRP injections for acne scars stimulate your body to repair damage it was once unable to fix. Think of it as a recruiting treatment, calling on your body’s natural ability to rebuild, resurface, and rejuvenate your skin.
If you suffer from acne scars, PRP injections may be right for you. It doesn’t matter if they are recent scars or scars you developed 20 years ago – PRP injections can help smooth and soften pock marks, pitted scars, and uneven skin due to all types of acne damage.
If you have any of the following acne scars, you may benefit from PRP injections:
Scars on the cheek, forehead, neck, and jawline are commonly treated with PRP injections but the great thing about PRP is it can typically be used anywhere there are issues like acne scars. This makes it a truly personalized treatment.
After Dr. Cabrera and his team determine you’re a great candidate for PRP injections to treat your scars – your appointment will take less than an hour to complete.
In order to collect the PRP, a small blood sample is taken from your arm and it is processed to separate PRP from the other types of blood cells. The area being treated is then injected with your own PRP using a small needle or cannula.
You may have some swelling and bruising after your treatment and this is because your body has initiated the healing response to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
There is very little downtime after your PRP injections meaning you don’t have to take time off of work or pause your social calendar.
You will start to see results after a few weeks and your results will continue to improve for the next several months. Dr. Cabrera may recommend a series of treatments spaced out 4-6 weeks depending on the severity of the scarring.
The cost of your PRP injections will vary depending on the area being treated as well as how many sessions are recommended.
