PRP with Microneedling

PRP with Microneedling

What is PRP with Microneedling?

As a part of the body’s healing ability, platelets and other components in human blood migrate to the point of care. Platelets are well known to release numerous growth factors that respond to tissue injury, which initiates and promotes the conditions for healing. Eclipse PRP is an autologous system that allows physicians to prepare platelet-rich plasma at the patient’s point of care. This system has been safely used in hundreds of thousands of procedures worldwide.

This treatment begins with the collection of your blood (approximately 8 – 16ml), which is then spun down with a centrifuge to separate out the plasma and platelet portion and is further divided using the separator gel as a special filter. The PRP portion of your blood is then injected back into your skin to stimulate new collagen production and to re-energize your cells into rejuvenating themselves.* The product injected is 100% your own blood by-product (autologous). PRP is most often combined with microneedling or laser resurfacing, which creates microcolumns in the skin and promotes penetration of the PRP.* Microneedling and fractionated laser resurfacing also contributes significantly to skin renewal and collagen remodeling.*

After PRP, you will likely experience mild to moderate swelling of the treated area; this will last for about 12- 24 hours.* Ice or cold compresses can be applied to reduce swelling if required.* You may notice a tingling sensation while the cells are being activated.* In rare cases, skin infection may occur, which is easily treated with an antibiotic.*

Benefits of PRP

Along with the benefit of using your own tissue, eliminating allergies, there is the added intrigue of mobilizing your stem cells for your own benefit. PRP has been shown to have overall rejuvenating effects on the skin, such as improving skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles; increasing volume via the increased production of collagen and elastin; and by diminishing and improving the appearance of scars.* Other benefits include minimal downtime, minimal risk, short recovery time, natural-looking results, no general anesthesia is required.*

How Much Blood will be Used?

We collect one tube, which varies between 8 to 16ml.* Due to the natural variation in quality of platelet-rich plasma, volume will vary between individuals and is dependent on patient’s blood volume and the ability to extract platelets. The amount of blood collected is not directly proportional to the amount of platelets that can be extracted through the Eclipse PRP Autologous system. Individual PRP volume may vary. We recommend preparing for treatment by hydrating and avoiding alcohol consumption. Your injector will make treatment decisions based on volume extracted to maximize your individual results for effective treatment.*

How Many Treatments are Required?

Depending on the condition that is being treated, multiple sessions may be required with an interval of 4 to 12 weeks between treatments.*

Hair Loss: PRP helps restart activity in hair follicles, which stimulates hair growth.* With proven success, PRP can help target any type of hair loss, whether it’s thinning hair, a reduced hairline, or bald spots.* Results from treatment for hair loss may take several months since dormant hair follicles start producing hair slowly as they become stronger.* You may first notice less hair loss, which is a good indication of the efficacy of the treatment.* Areas with no active hair follicles may not respond immediately and may take additional treatments.* Your provider will assess the skin before every treatment to determine the response.

Rejuvenation: You will notice improved skin tone and texture within several weeks after every treatment.* A series of treatments is recommended with regular intervals, after which time maintenance treatments are recommended to maintain results as the skin ages.*

Scars and Acne Scars: The nature of scarring is such that every scar responds differently. We often customize every treatment, utilizing a combination of PRP with MicroNeedling and/or various lasers to address different forms of scarring.* A series of treatments may include a combination of modalities as the scars heal and the skin is regenerated.*

Contraindications, Risks and Downtime

PRP used for aesthetic procedures is safe for most individuals between the ages of 25‐80.* There are very few contraindications and side effects. PRP is often used to decrease the downtime associated with invasive laser procedures.* A consultation with one of our providers will help determine if you are a good candidate for PRP, at which time all the risks and benefits will be discussed.*
