COMPARISON BETWEEN THE EFFICACY OF PLATELET RICH PLASMA COMBINED WITH FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER VS. LASER ALONE IN THE TREATMENT OF FACIAL ATROPHIC ACNE SCAR SPLIT-FACE STUDY
Hamid B. Suleiman* and Rama M. Okdeh
Introduction: Acne scar is a common distressing complication of acne vulgaris. Many treatments are available for treating post acne scars but optimized treatment still does not exist. Aim of the work: To compare the efficacy and safety of combining autologous PRP with FCL in the treatment of atrophic acne scars with that of FCL alone. Patients and method: This study included 30 patients suffering from post-acne scars. CO2 laser treatment was applied to both sides of the face followed by PRP injection for the right side, each participant received 3 treatments with four weeks interval between the sessions and were followed up for a period of 3 months. Results: The outcome among the study were assessed using Goodman and Baron Scale at different time intervals. Significant reduction in acne scars was observed in both treated sides but better reduction of acne scars was noted at the PRP site, the incidence of adverse effects such as erythema during the procedure was significantly disappeared faster in PRP injected side compared to the other side. Conclusion: Combination of fractional CO2 laser resurfacing and intradermal PRP was superior to CO2 laser alone for acne scar treatment.[Full Text Article]
