PRP Therapy Found to be Effective Treatment for Acne
Regular readers of these blogs have become very familiar with the many uses of Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP Therapy.
This astounding biologic agent has been used very effectively to treat sports injuries, debilitating joint diseases, for hair restoration, and even to cure erectile dysfunction.
Now, a study recently published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, concludes that PRP Therapy is an effective treatment for acne. The study was designed to determine the safety and effectiveness of PRP combined with a technique called “microneedling” for the treatment of scarring and skin damage caused by acne.
The study looked at men 17 to 32 years, with “atrophic acne scars.” On one half of their faces microneedling was performed with the addition of PRP, on the other microneedling along with inert distilled water.
In over 60% of the men, the side of the face treated with the PRP saw a 20% or greater reduction of scars, than the side treated with microneedling alone.
What is PRP Therapy and How does it Work?
Platelet Rich Plasma is what we call a “biologic.” Biologic agents are made using your own cells and are designed to replicate your body’s own natural healing processes. In the case of PRP, it is derived from your blood. These biologic agents such are the foundation of the rapidly evolving science of regenerative medicine.
A unique centrifugal process is used to harvest platelets, stem cells, and long-chain proteins known as healing factors from a sample of your blood.
The centrifuge separates the PRP from your white and red blood cells. The remaining liquid suspension is filled with platelets, stem cells and growth factor proteins. When this PRP is injected anywhere in the body, it “tricks” your body into thinking an injury has occurred at the injection site.
It triggers your body’s natural healing response. Blood flow is increased to the area. Rejuvenation of new cells is also stimulated by the introduction of PRP.
PRP is increasingly being used to treat joint problems and sports injuries, as well as a number of age reversing and aesthetic procedures.
