The scientific evidence for PRP in acne scars is very limited. Its more of a buzz phrase that is popular but I don't think there are any well done studies that support its use.
My advice is to make sure you have consulted with a reputable dermatologist (or two) with expertise in the treatment of acne scars rather than a medical spa. Remember you are doing a procedure to treat your skin, so stick to the experts for the skin.

Thank you for your question. In my opinion, adding PRP or platelet rich plasma to microneedling is a great adjunct in treating acne scars. You might need more than one treatment to achieve a desired outcome.
I hope this helps. Best wishes. Dr. Salameh (Plastic surgeon - Bowling Green, KY)
