SKIN REJUVENATION

FOR TEXTURE, TONE, FINE LINES, WRINKLES AND SCARS

PRP is a natural product produced from your own body. Through a simple blood draw, a little amount of blood is drawn from an individual into a sterile tube. Using a unique centrifuge machine, the blood is spun down in order to take out and concentrate the stem cells, growth factors and platelets that are very important for tissue healing. This little amount of blood with a high concentration of platelets and growth factors is referred to as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP is best known for its wonderful act of skin rejuvenation. When PRP is injected into particular parts of the skin, its high platelet concentration functions as a matrix that stimulates the growth of new collagen, revitalizes skin tissue and hence leads to naturally smooth and firm skin. As a result, PRP treatment gets rid of wrinkles, stretchmarks and much more.This creates a smoother skin feel and tone. During the procedure, the registered nurse does micro-needling of the area to further improve the results. The micro-needling causes micro injuries , which creates inflammation and increases blood flow to the injured area. This combination of injecting and micro-needling with the growth factors in the PRP, further enhances the results. This treatment is finished off with a Valmont Collagen mask (patent medical grade collagen used to heal burn victims) which heals & hydrates the skin and helps with inflammation and redness. Prior to injecting PRP, a topical anesthesia can be used around the area to make the process as painless as possible. Treatments are scheduled about 1-2 months apart and 3- 4 treatments are recommended with follow up treatments at 6 months to 1 year apart. The treatments must be continued periodically to maintain improvement.

HAIR RESTORATION

FOR STIMULATION OF HAIR GROWTH IN HAIR LOSS CONDITIONS
PRP therapy is a proactive therapeutic option for male and female patients experiencing hair loss PRP can be injected into the balding scalp to potentially stimulate thin (miniaturized) hair to grow into thicker (terminal) hairs. Patients with thinning, but not totally bald, areas would be the best candidates. Platelet rich plasma is obtained from the patient’s own blood- it is considered ‘autologous’= from the patient (just like fat transfer is considered autologous as we use the patient’s own fat). Blood is centrifuged which separates it into layers; red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and plasma. PRP is separated from the other components and carefully injected into the treatment areas- thinning hair on the scalp or into the face to rejuvenate the skin (has been referenced as the vampire facial). The platelets are activated during the injection process. During the procedure, the registered nurse does micro-needling of the scalp to further improve the results. The micro-needling causes micro injuries to the scalp, which creates inflammation and increases blood flow to the hair follicles. This combined with the growth factors in the PRP, further enhances the results.Prior to injecting PRP, a topical anesthesia can be used around the area to make the process as painless as possible. Treatments are scheduled about 1-2 months apart and 3- 4 treatments are recommended with follow up treatments at 6 months to 1 year apart. Some improvement (in reversing miniaturization) can be expected in the first 2-3 months. The treatments must be continued periodically to maintain any improvement.

MICRO-NEEDLING

FOR COLLAGEN STIMULATION & GROWTH 

Eclipse Micro-Needling with PRP is a combination of services which uses microneedling to penetrate to the platelet-rich plasma which is activated to release growth factors and proteins which stimulate collagen and growth factor.
