Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy

Improve skin quality and appearance without the downtime associated with a surgical procedure!

The Eclipse MicroPen™ Elite is an innovative technology designed to improve skin quality and appearance without the downtime associated with a surgical procedure. In combination with PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) therapy, this micro-needling technique can reduce the appearance of many common signs of aging as well as other imperfections on the face, neck, and body. Furthermore, treatment time is often brief, and patients should be able to return to normal activity soon after the procedure.

Another benefit of the Eclipse MicroPen™ Elite is the brief procedure time, which can be completed in as little as 15 minutes, depending on the size and number of treatment areas. Furthermore, most patients report little discomfort, describing the sensation as feeling similar to having sandpaper brush against the skin. A numbing solution can be applied to make your experience as pleasant and comfortable as possible. Some mild redness, tenderness, and swelling in the treated area is normal, and these effects should fade over the course of a few days. Makeup can be worn to cover these symptoms if desired. Depending on your customized treatment plan, one or more sessions may be recommended to optimize your results.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is PRP?

Micro-needling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, also known as the Vampire Facial ®, is an advanced skin rejuvenation technique that uses a patient’s own blood plasma to revitalize the skin.

Our nurse will draw a small amount of your blood and place the sample into a centrifuge that separates the red blood cells from the valuable plasma serum, rich in platelets. Once this serum is prepared, it is applied topically to the skin. It is then used in conjunction with Micro-needling, in a process that involves penetrating the skin with tiny needles to stimulate collagen production.

Your platelets are the component of your blood that are responsible for repairing injury. They do so by starting a cascade which involves releasing multiple growth factors and activating multi-potent stem cells to regenerate new skin tissue. The platelet rich plasma from your own blood, when applied to your skin while inducing micro-injuries from the Micro-needle device, start the same cascade; the result is an enhancement in the new collagen and tissue regeneration leading to a firmer, smoother and more youthful face.


How many treatments are needed?

Typically two to six treatments are needed, depending on what you are having treated and the level of results desired. Each person’s skin conditions are different and require different levels of treatment. Those with mild wrinkles and fine lines may see improvement after just one treatment while more advanced skin conditions like acne scarring may need multiple sessions. The number of required sessions will be determined during consultation


Why should I choose the PRP facial?

  • Uses your body’s own healing properties to actually REBUILD your own collagen
  • Unprecedented collagen stimulation (double that of similar procedures)
  • Drastically improves the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks
  • Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles
  • Adds volume to skin
  • Improves skin texture
  • Increase vascularity for a healthy glow all the time


How does it work?

This treatment is a combination of two complementary techniques. The Eclipse MicroPen™ Elite performs automated micro-needling to create tiny, precise channels in the skin. The body then responds to these micro-injuries by stimulating collagen and elastin production and generating newer, younger skin cells.

While this method can be effective alone, adding PRP therapy can further enhance the cosmetic benefits. PRP will be collected prior to beginning the micro-needling treatment by harvesting a small volume of your blood and removing the red blood cells. The remaining fluid is called plasma, and this serum is naturally filled with growth factors known for repairing soft tissue and encouraging skin rejuvenation. PRP will be applied topically to the treatment area before and after micro-needling.
