    Context: There are several modalities of treating acne scars. The combination of microneedling and platelet-rich plasma is a synergistic approach to treat acne scars. Aims: The aim was to compare the efficacy of microneedling alone versus microneedling with PRP in acne scars. Materials and Methods: This was a split face study conducted on 36 patients with acne scars who underwent four sessions of microneedling with PRP on right side and microneedling alone on left side at monthly...

    Background: The treatment of vitiligo is often challenging and requires a multi-modality approach. Fractional carbon dioxide laser has been studied as an adjuvant therapy in cases of vitiligo. Autologous platelet-rich plasma is rich in growth factors, which may contribute to the growth of melanocytes, and thus help in the repigmentation of vitiligo patches. We aimed to study the combination of these two modalities for the treatment of vitiligo. Aims and Objective: The...

    Context: Though many treatment options are available for treating post-acne scars, optimized treatment still does not exist. Till date, comparative split-face studies, analyzing the efficacy of combined treatment modalities for acne scars with adequate sample size and with statistically significant results, are still lacking. Aim: The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of the combined use of platelet-rich plasma and fractional ablative CO2 laser versus FACL...

    Context: Vitiligo is a common primary acquired pigmentary disorder due to loss of epidermal functioning melanocytes. Many surgical techniques have evolved over the years for its treatment and the need of a cost-effective modality has always been put forward. Aim: The aim of the study was to compare the efficacy of non-cultured epidermal cell suspension with that of epidermal curettage in repigmentation of stable vitiligo. Settings and Design: It was a prospective randomized...

    Context: Skin conditions contribute substantial burden toward global morbidity and mortality. Acne vulgaris, with its rising prevalence, has become a cause of concern among researchers as well as dermatologists due to scarring. Aims: The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of microneedling alone versus microneedling combined with platelet-rich plasma in post-acne scars using a split-face method. Materials and Methods: Thirty patients with atrophic post-acne facial...
