Dynamic Regenerative Medicine in Solihull is excited to offer acne scar treatments to patients with a new skin rejuvenating treatment that will naturally and reliability treats scars like acne scars, by using PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment. This new treatment harnesses the power of growth factors in your own platelets to rejuvenate and correct the skin, by stimulating the production of collagen. Our PRP kit uses the brand Dr PRP, treating skin conditions such as acne scars. How PRP Works Here at Dynamic Regenerative Medicine our Platelet Rich Plasma injections use a special technique to create a Platelet substance rich in growth factors, made from a sample of your own blood. This then is used to be injected into your acne scarring. The extracted growth factors from your blood then promote tissue healing and regenerate the growth of collagen and elastin via a simple, natural process. What to Expect During Your PRP Treatment To start with a clinician will draw a small sample of blood from your arm. The blood then goes through a process of centrifugation to convert it into PRP. This process takes about six minutes. Once finished, the high concentration PRP is injected into the acne scar areas. The whole appointment will take approximately 30 minutes. There is no downtime associated with PRP kits and you can go back to work the same day. What Are The Risks With PRP Treatment? PRP injection treatment uses your own blood to naturally rejuvenate the skin, making there is virtually no risk of allergic reaction. There is very minimal pain involved with PRP.
