Beautiful Skin, New You: Microneedling With PRP & Eclipse Micropen
What is Eclipse Microneedling?
Microneedling is the process of injecting additional collagen into skin that has been damaged by age, life, and the environment. It’s a type of facial and a highly effective treatment that can improve skin tone, texture, and radiance. It has also been shown to significantly reduce acne scarring, hyper-pigmentation, stretch marks, rosacea, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Microneedling is one of the latest “Hollywood” treatments to combat aging, and of course, we are proudly offering it to our clients across the U.S. – whether you’re a catwalk star or not!
What Does Microneedling Do?
Microneedling is a non-surgical facial rejuvenation technique that uses fine needles to puncture the skin at precise depths ranging from .5 to 2.5 millimeters. The each tiny puncture wound signals the body to send generate localized collagen to the area, activating the body’s healing and restoration processes.
Eclipse microneedling uses 12 micro-needles that are “rolled” over your skin using a specialized applicator. Patients report that it feels like a light sandpaper being rubbed against the skin. Healing time is relatively quick, with the only side effects being minor irritation and redness for 24 to 48 hours.
When microneedling is combined with PRP, the addition of growth factors means that collagen production is increased and the skin heals more quickly.
What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a preparation of platelets and the associated growth factors into a plasma solution. This PRP serum is extracted from the patient’s blood and is activated to release at least eight essential growth factors in their natural and biologically-determined ratios with signaling proteins in tact. Since PRP is derived from the patient, there is virtually no risk of an allergy or intolerance.
Microneedling and PRP has the following benefits:
- It’s safe and effective for use on many body including the face, neck, back, hands, and décolletage.
- Microneedling with PRP recovery time is minimal. In many cases, there is no downtime.
- Practically immediate results. Look 10 years younger in as little as 30 minutes!
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Wrinkles, Scars, and Acne
The PRP facial procedure has grown in popularity after media exposure when the Kardashians referred to it as a “vampire facial”. Combined, microneedling with PRP can effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and encourage regrowth of younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.
Does PRP Really Do Anything?
Yes! Independent studies have confirmed that patients combining treatments with PRP experience significantly lesser redness, edema, and pain during procedures, and microneedling is no different.
Is Eclipse Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Safe?
Since the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is produced from a patient’s own blood, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection. And the Eclipse PRP is an FDA cleared 510(k) Class II medical device. You can rest assured that you are getting cutting-edge anti-aging treatment with backing from thousands of treatments worldwide.
