Goodbye Acne Scarring, Hello PRP Facial!

Is PRP Really Effective In Aiding Acne Scarring?

Perhaps you’ve heard of PRP facial therapy as the new coveted and preferred method of achieving younger, more luminous skin. It’s not difficult to understand the appeal. PRP is an all natural, minimally invasive procedure with lasting and permanent results. There’s more to PRP facials, however than simply reversing signs of aging. For those who have been at the mercy of acne scarring, unable to find a solution to minimize unwanted facial marking, PRP facial treatments may be the answer they’ve been looking for.

What is PRP, and is a PRP Facial Safe?

PRP, or “Platelet Rich Plasma therapy,” is a process that utilizes the body’s own growth factors to encourage healing. By extracting these power healers and re-injecting them into the source in need of repair, whether, for a sports injury, hair regrowth or to stimulate collagen in the facial area, healing time and results occur quickly, virtually painlessly and are long lasting (even permanent).

PRP facials are completely safe. Unlike other facial rejuvenation procedures, a PRP facial does not involve the injection of any toxins. Since PRP only relies upon using the body’s organic growth material there is literally a never-ending supply of safe, powerful and natural supply available forPRP facial therapy.

Is PRP Really Effective In Aiding Acne Scarring?

According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), acne affects close to 50-million people in the U.S. every year, is one of the most common skin conditions and an estimated 85% of Americans between the ages of 12 and 24 have issues with (minor) acne.

Whether an individual has or continues to experience minor acne or a more extreme case, scarring can be an unwelcome byproduct.

PRP has been shown to minimize and often eliminate acne scarring when other methods have been unsuccessful. This is due to the natural regeneration of healthy tissue PRP initiates, opposed to synthetic treatment approaches. PRP addresses the damaged cells and reduction of collagen in the facial area. While PRP works to diminish acne scarring, it can also correct the signs of sun damage, age spots, and wrinkles.

In a study referenced by the U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health (NIH), 23 out of 30 patients experienced acne scarring reduction “by one or two grades.” In the same study, participants expressed higher satisfaction from PRP facial therapy than with vitamin C treatments (another natural procedure).

PRP Facial Conclusions

For those who’ve endured acnes scarring, a PRP facial may be the perfect solution. Not as invasive as most acne facial treatments, but more powerful than topical treatments, without the risks associated with synthetic injectables – why not try an all-natural, innovative method of remedying acne scarring?
