PRP: Platelet-Rich Plasma
As part of the body’s healing ability, platelets and other components in human blood migrate to the point of care. Platelets are well known to release numerous growth factors that respond to tissue injury and initiate and promote the conditions for healing.
Eclipse PRP is an autologous system that allows physicians to prepare platelet- rich plasma at the patient point of care. The platelet-rich plasma is optimally concentrated with minimal amounts of contaminating red and white blood cells. This system has been safely used in hundreds of thousands of procedures worldwide.
How we are using PRP:
In combination with Micro-needling for:
- Skin revitalization is a treatment to resurface skin, or to improve the texture, clarity and overall appearance of skin. It can treat fine lines, wrinkle, texture, pigmentation and more. Whatever the method, the result is usually a smoother, clearer and more youthful appearance of the skin.
- Skin resurfacing is ideal for improving skin’s texture, reducing wrinkles, decreasing fine lines and reducing discolorations by stimulating new collagen growth.
- The toll of time, sun exposure, genetics and lifestyle factors including nutrition, alcohol and smoking all may contribute to facial wrinkling, fine lines and even prior acne may have an impact on the overall surface of a person’s skin.
ACNE and Scarring
- Acne is an infection of the skin caused by changes in the sebaceous glands. The redness associated with acne comes from the inflammation of the skin in response to the infection. Oils from the glands combine with dead skin cells to block hair follicles. Under the blocked pore, oil builds up. Skin bacteria can then grow very quickly. This infection makes the skin become swollen and red, which becomes visible. The face, chest, back, and upper arms are most common places for acne to happen. Acne is common during puberty, when a person is turning from a child into an adult, because of high levels of hormones. Acne becomes less common as people reach adulthood. When severe, acne can often result in scarring. Even less severe cases can lead to scarring, if not properly treated.
- Traditionally, patients with persistent to moderate acne have been treated with only topical or sometimes systemic antibiotics. Now doctors are able to treat acne with this advanced technology.
VASCULAR & PIGMENTED LESIONS
- Nearly everyone in the world has one or more pigmented lesion. Typically pigmented lesions are caused by sun exposure or by aging over time while others are hereditary. Never the less pigmented lesions are simply spots on the skin where there is a higher concentration of melanin. Lesions are either flat or raised and in most cases, pigmented lesions are merely a cosmetic concern. To cosmetically improve pigmented lesions there are many minimally invasive procedures.
