PLATELET RICH PLASMA FOR SKIN REJUVENATION
PRP TREATMENT PROCESS
Platelet-Rich Plasma is prepared by taking a small sample of your blood. Our clinic uses the Eclipse PRP® system to prepare your therapeutic plasma. Once the PRP has been processed our clinician will utilize the PRP in the treatment area using one of the following methods below.
PRP “VAMPIRE” FACIAL
Platelet Rich Plasma is used in conjunction with ECLIPSE MICROPEN ELITE® (micro needling). This therapeutic treatment is aimed to stimulate the body’s own collagen production.
The micro-channels created by our micro-needling pen provide direct pathways to the deeper layers of your skin for optimal healing & tissue regeneration. The PRP is then topically massaged onto the skin to increase the absorption of the nutrients & growth factors; resulting in the appearance of firmer, smoother skin.
Micro-needling with PRP is an ideal treatment for:
- Dull complexion
- Fine lines & moderate wrinkles
- Thicken the dermis and epidermis for a healthier skin barrier
- Increased Collagen (CIT)
ECLIPSE MICROPEN ELITE® Protocol
3 – 6 treatments at 6- 8 weeks intervals

- Transforming Growth Factor group (TGF)
- Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)
- Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)
