Abstract

Microneedling Fractional Radiofrequency (MFR) is a newer, well-accepted modality for the treatment of atrophic acne scars while the role of Platelet rich plasma (PRP) remains to be investigated. The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of combined MFR and PRP therapy (group A) with microneedling fractional radiofrequency alone (group B) in facial atrophic acne scars and effect of treatment on quality of life. Statistical comparison of end results between group A and B were found to be equally effective, based on GBS scale and Observer's scar assessment. However, overall scar assessment by patient and Dermatology Life Quality Index was better in patients of group A.

微針分段式射頻是治療萎縮性痤瘡疤痕的一種較新的廣為接受方式,而高濃度血小板血漿的作用則有待研究。這項研究的目的是比較聯合微針分段式射頻單獨和聯合高濃度血小板血漿療法(甲組)與單獨的微針分段式射頻治療(乙組),在面部萎縮性痤瘡疤痕的療效以及其對生活質量的影響。根據古德曼和男爵的定量疤痕量表和觀察者的疤痕評估結果,發現甲乙組的最終結果的統計學比較為功效一樣。但是,患者的整體疤痕評估和皮膚病生活質量指數在甲組患者中較好。
