How can I reduce the appearance of acne scars?
A series of 6-8 laser resurfacing treatments with the inclusion of medical micro-needling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is my go to. At my clinic it is known as the "Vampire Facial Combo". During the same treatment we do a full face resurfacing (depending on age we may use the Clear and Brilliant or move to the GentleMax Pro) followed by a medical micro-needling device with PRP. We infuse the PRP while using the needling device, and for deep scars, I will also add small superficial injections of PRP directly into the scar itself and surrounding tissue. The results are phenomenal and can be enhanced with at-home care. I recommend a glycolic cleanser, a medical-grade retinol, and a serum moisturiser - ideally one which is ultra hydrating without feeling "heavy" like the Jan Marini Age Intervention Peptide Extreme.
