Background: Scaring in acne remains a common problem and became therapeutic challenges for the clinician. Several modalities were introduced and combination therapies are required to achieve satisfactory results. Subcision worked by tunneling the connective tissue and scattered the fibrosis scar. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) influences wound-healing by stimulating an intense inflammatory response and growth factors, these increase in the production of extracellular matrix and granulation tissue occurs, with vascular ingrowth fibroblastic proliferation and collagen production also accelerated. Methodology: It was a medical therapeutic study conducted over a period of 6 months. Twelve patients successfully completed the trial. patients suffering from atrophic post acne scars received PRP injection in combination with subcision for 3 sessions with one month interval. The assessment was done using Goodman and Baron Scale and Global aesthetic improvement scale (GAIS) to evaluate the results after each treatment session and 3 months after the last treatment. Objective: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of platelet rich plasma (PRP) as a combination therapy to subcision in the treatment of atrophic post acne scars.
