Is MicroPen/ PRP Treatment a Good Solution for Scars?

Depending on how severe your acne scars are, they can be very hard to treat. In fact, it often requires more than one treatment method to improve them, and some doctors use a mixture of MicroPen microneedling and PRP therapy. A combination treatment is often the best way to get rid of those troublesome scars. But is MicroPen/ PRP treatment a good solution for acne scars?

MicroPen & PRP treatment for scars

MicroPen is a skin rejuvenation procedure that utilizes microneedling technology to correct a range of skin issues, including acne scars and wrinkles.

The MicroPen is fitted with a sterile tip that contains micro-needles that injure the skin, as the device is moved across the surface. These injury points trigger the skin’s natural repair process, and encourage collagen formation, which has the effect of smoothing acne scars and other skin irregularities.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy has a similar effect on the skin’s repair process, because PRP is filled with growth factors that also stimulate collagen. PRP starts with the doctor taking a small blood sample from the patient. The sample is then passed through a centrifuge, in order to separate the platelet rich component.

A combination treatment of MicroPen and PRP is a good solution for acne scars, because they both promote wound healing. As a result, skin renewal takes place, and this smooths the scars, and lightens and rejuvenates the skin.
