METHODS: : It is a single blind parallel comparable study to compare efficacy of 35% GA peeling v/s PRP (platelet rich plasma) in acne scar. All patients were divided in 35% GA peeling group 1 and PRP therapy group 2. RESULTS: Out of total 100 patients, 50 patients selected for PRP and 50 for GA peel. Pre-treatment mean score in PRP was 34.08 scars with standard deviation 13.82 after 6thsitting mean score reduced to 14.76 with standard deviation 5.49. For pre-treatment mean score in GA peel were 28.12 scars with standard deviation 11.14 after 6thsitting mean score reduced to 17.96 with standard deviation 8.32.
