Pimples, while they are forming, cause pain and inflammation. And once they are there, they don’t look pleasant at all and feel disgusting. It would have been manageable, but that’s not all.
Most of the times, a pimple leaves us with a parting gift; acne scar.
Acne scars are generally a product of inflamed blemishes, which are caused by skin pores that are drenched with excess oil, bacteria and dead skin cells. You don’t just get them from picking at pimples, which is a quite popular belief. According to dermatologists based in New York, there are acne lesions that are prone to scarring even when they are left untouched.
Shallow lesions generally heal quickly without the risk of scarring. However, if there’s a breakage in the walls of the pore, the infected discharge spills out causing deeper lesions. Such cystic lesions underneath the skin do not surface out of the skin and traps the inflammation in there.
Our skin is designed to heal, and by forming new collagen fibres, the skin tries to repair these cystic lesions. The result, however, is a skin that’s not as smooth and as flawless as it’s supposed to be.
At Look Young Clinic, we offer a spectacular, in-house procedure that can naturally diminish the acne scars; Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment. Unlike a laser treatment, which was the only resort until now, PRP is a non-invasive procedure. It’s an effective procedure for treating a number of skin disorders and, rejuvenating the skin by harnessing the power of patient’s own blood.
Sometimes referred to as the vampire facial, PRP is a well-advocated acne scar treatment procedure which is less invasive than surgeries and laser treatment and works best when combined with other treatments such as Micro Needling.
How does PRP work?
During a PRP treatment, a concentrated solution of platelets, which is rich in growth factors and taken out of the patient’s blood, is injected into the area affected by the scars. Platelets, used as dermal fillers, are rich sources of growth factors, promote tissue healing and facilitate Collagen and Elastin regeneration.
When the platelet-rich plasma is injected back into the affected area, it stimulates the growth and initiates the healing process, repairing the skin damaged by acne scars.The complete procedure is rather condensed and simple. It doesn’t take longer than an hour or so, depending upon the affected area you want to be treated.
With no downtime involved, you’re free to carry on your day immediately after the treatment.
