Using PRP and Microneedling to Improve Deeply Pitted Acne Scars

woman with acneAcne is a frustrating and difficult skin condition that often leaves behind deeply pitted scars, even after red, angry pimples have disappeared. These type of depressed facial scars not only have cosmetic effects on the body, but also lead to psychological impacts like embarrassment, poor self-esteem, and social isolation. This is why, back in 2010, Dr. Toscano and Red Bamboo Medi Spa were the first to introduce the “Stem Cell Facial” in the Tampa Bay Area. The Stem Cell Facial harnesses the power of platelet-rich plasma and the Micropen microneedling device to resolve skin damage on the face, including deep acne scars.

What is the Stem Cell Facial?

The Stem Cell Facial offered by Red Bamboo Medi Spa combines two of the most powerful skin rejuvenation techniques into one impressive treatment. First, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is obtained by drawing a small amount of a patient’s blood and spinning it in a high-powered centrifuge. This “liquid gold” is a highly concentrated serum rich in platelets, stem cells, and growth factors that stimulate new, healthy skin cells to replace older, more damaged cells. During the Stem Cell Facial, half of the PRP is injected directly into specific problem areas on the face, like deep acne scars, nasolabial folds, and other wrinkles.

The other half of the PRP is utilized after the revolutionary Micropen microneedling device is used on the face.  The Micropen contains 12 tiny needles that create micro-injuries to the dermis and epidermis. These micro-injuries trigger the skin’s natural healing response and stimulate increased collagen production to further overcome skin damage. Applying PRP over the Micropen’s micro-injuries essentially supercharges the healing process.   

Healing Acne Scars with the Stem Cell Facial

According to a 2016 report published in The Dermatologist, “Acne scarring historically has been a difficult entity to treat for both the physician and patient, as typically multiple expensive sessions are required with less than optimal outcomes.” The Stem Cell Facial changes all of that by providing a treatment that creates natural and long-lasting healing in the skin that is powerful enough to overcome deep acne scars.

With two to three Red Bamboo Medi Spa Stem Cell Facial treatments spaced at least 4 weeks apart, you can enjoy a safe and simple procedure that will significantly minimize your acne scars and even reduce other unwanted signs of skin damage and aging like loose skin, forehead creases, wrinkles around the eyes, and nasolabial grooves.
