Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment

Facial Rejuvenation

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial Rejuvenation Therapy is the injection of PRP into the skin for tightening, collagen production and rejuvenation purposes. The treatment starts with obtaining blood from the patient and isolating the platelet rich plasma utilizing a centrifuge. Once these cells are removed, they are ready to be injected back into the patients skin. This state-of-the-art, modern treatment has the distinct advantage over chemical facials, since the the PRP cells come from the patient’s body and can directly activate production of collagen and encourage tissue repair from within. Your blood platelets regulate healing and signal other surrounding cells to repair damaged tissue and regenerate new tissue!

Although each patient’s results will vary, most experience a smoother and brighter facial tone and texture, fewer wrinkles, and improvement from sun damage, acne scars and aging. Patients of any age may benefit greatly from PRP therapy. This procedure is also less invasive than surgical options and has little to no downtime.

Hair Restoration

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration Therapy is an innovative technique that is already being used for non-surgical cosmetic treatment and facial rejuvenation and is now available for the treatment of hair loss. The main purpose of PRP injections for hair restoration is to stimulate inactive hair follicles into active growth. Currently, PRP therapy is one of the most effective ways to regrow hair available.

The PRP Hair Restoration therapy procedure is extremely convenient and non-invasive. Upon arrival to our office, a small amount of blood must be drawn. Then, the vital hair growth proteins are separated from that blood through a centrifugation process. The separated growth proteins, now in the form of a platelet rich plasma (PRP), are then injected into the scalp, where they can stimulate the regrowth of your hair by activating dormant follicles and promoting new cell growth.

If you have weak quality or thinning hair, where functioning hair follicles can still be observed, or small bald spots on the scalp, you may be a good candidate for PRP hair restoration.

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is an autologous concentrated preparation of platelets and the associated growth factors in a small volume of plasma. Platelets are a natural source of a number of growth factors in their natural and biologically-determined ratios.

What do Platelets do

What do Platelets do?

Platelets release growth factors which regulate the healing cascade by signaling to surrounding cells to repair damaged tissue and regenerate new tissue. Key growth factors involved in this process include but are not limited to:

  • Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)
  • Transforming Growth Factor group (TGF)
  • Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)
  • Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)
  • Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF)
  • Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF)

Platelets – Supraphysiologic Range is Optimal

Animal in vitro Clinical Studies Support 1.5 – 3 X Baseline

Those methods with lower concentrations of platelets – 1 to 3 times baseline – showed more robust healing rates than those with higher concentrations 3 to 8 times baseline.

The use of highly concentrated platelet preparations appeared to have an inhibitory influence…reasons could be unwanted inhibitory and cytotoxic effects of growth factors at such high concentrations.

PRP might exert positive effects…in a dose-dependent manner up to a certain level, but adverse effects occur when it is highly concentrated.

Optimal results were observed at a platelet concentration of 2.5 X...increased concentrations resulted in a reduction in proliferation and a suboptimal effect on osteoblast function.

These data reject the hypothesis that increases the concentration of platelets in PRP is beneficial for articular cartilage and the meniscus; furthermore, these findings suggest that high platelet concentrations for intra-articular injection should be considered with caution.

Eclipse Difference

Simple: Fewer steps than other PRP (platelet-rich plasma) kits
Excellence: Optimal platelet recovery 87% ± 10%
Fast: Centrifuge with a single spin in a matter of minutes
Patient Friendly: Small volume of blood required
Excellent Value: High volume PRP yield, low cost per mL
~6 mL PRP per 11 mL tube
~12 mL PRP per 22 mL tube
Consistent Platelet Concentration: Allowing for predictable performance

Regulatory Status

FDA cleared 510(k) Class II medical device. Eclipse PRP is intended for the safe and rapid preparation of autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from a small sample of blood at the patient point of care. The PRP is mixed with autograft or allograft bone prior to application to a bony defect for improving handling characteristics. 510(k) number: BK110035

Safety

1. PRP should be applied to the same patient from whom the blood was drawn.
2. Storage of tubes containing blood at or below 0°C may result in tube breakage.
3. Storage of tubes above 40°C may damage the gel stability.
4. Do not remove conventional rubber stoppers by rolling with a thumb. Remove stoppers with a twist and pull motion.
5. Do not use tubes if foreign matter is present.
6. All liquid preservatives and anticoagulants are clear. Do not use tubes after their expiration date.
7. Do not re-sterilize and do not attempt to clean this product.
8. Do not use products if pouch is damaged.
9. Use prepared platelet concentrate material within 4 hours after drawing blood from patient.
Possible Side Effects
Damage to blood vessels, hematoma, infection and/or irritation.
Temporary or permanent nerve damage that may result in pain or numbness.
As with any injection-based treatment, infection is a slight possibility.
