Combining the Laser Spectra Peel and PRP to Treat Acne Scars

acne scarTreating acne scars can be harder than anticipated. This is not because someone’s pits and crevasses may be unusually resistant to treatment; rather it’s because acne scars are rarely just a one-time occurrence.


People who are prone to acne are more likely to develop acne scars, but they are also the ones most likely to develop acne outbreaks while in the middle of an existing scar treatment. This new acne can lead to new scars, which lessens the impact of that initial scar treatment. Though it’s not a true vicious cycle, this sequence isn’t exactly helpful, either. This is why a two-pronged approach that employs the laser Spectra Peel treatment and Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy can form a better acne scar treatment than either one alone.


Laser Spectra Peel and Acne: The Short Version


The laser Spectra Peel treatment works through the use of a carbon solution that is applied to your face. The carbon is allowed to seep into your pores and settle before the Spectra Peel laser treatment is applied. The carbon absorbs the laser, heats up, and stimulates explosions for the production of new dermis. This snapping is harmless but dislodges clogs and debris, which are sucked up during the procedure. As an added benefit, the popping also shrinks enlarged pores and can prevent further acne outbreaks for around six months.


PRP Therapy and Acne Scars: The Short Version


Your blood is filled with various healing factors and platelets that help govern how tissue heals after an injury. Acne scars are areas of the face where collagen has been eroded as a result of the body fighting off the bacteria that used to be present in a pimple. Although an acne scar is a defect in the skin, the body doesn’t bother mending it since there hasn’t been any actual injury.


PRP therapy
is when your blood is drawn and the healing factors and platelets are extracted and mixed into a new solution, which is injected directly into the site of the acne scars. The micro-needle makes your body realize there’s an injury, and the large concentration of platelets make it think that the injury was bigger than it actually was. The end result of PRP treatment is that your body’s healing mechanisms get a kick in the pants and start producing enough collagen and other skin elements to fill out and restore the scar.


Their Powers Combined


Laser Spectra Peel treatments can help to eliminate and prevent acne while PRP can mend acne scars. Combining the two results is an acne scar treatment that can produce long-lasting results without getting interrupted by new outbreaks. This means that the smooth, youthful skin you work so hard for can finally be enjoyed to its fullest.
