What is a PRP facelift/Vampire Facial?

Microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy) with Platelet Rich Plasma.

Eclipse PRP Treatments combine the advanced Sknery pen microneedling technology with 'platelet-rich plasma' (also known as PRP, a high concentration of platelets surrounded in its own plasma). PRP Treatments improve skin's overall appearance, tone, texture. PRP Treatments can also reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars, stretch marks and wrinkles. Because PRP is exclusively retrieved from the patient's body, it is well received by the body because of its organic nature. It has virtually no risk of intolerance. The "Vampire Facial" or "Vampire Facelift" are common names for different types of platelet-rich plasma treatments.

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?

We obtain Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm into a sterile tube. This sample is centrifuged to separate your plasma, which we use for the treatment, from your red and white blood cells. Plasma contains high concentration of platelets, stem cells and growth factors. Platelets help your tissue heal and grow new cells.

What are the benefits of microneedling with PRP (Vampire Facial)?

When PRP is used with microneedling, it penetrates your skin through the tiny channels the microneedles create. The PRP supercharges the microneedling benefits. PRP also addresses under-eye puffiness and dark circles to give you a more youthful, well-rested appearance. Since PRP is derived from your own blood, the side effects are virtually eliminated.

Who is a good candidate for microneedling with PRP?

Microneedling with PRP is a very safe and effective treatment for adults with all skin types who wish to improve their skin quality. The depth of the Microneedling pen can be adjusted to meet the client's individual needs and objectives. Due to its low-risk profile, Microneedling with PRP is a good option for people who are not good candidates for lasers, such as those with darker skin types. Microneedling with PRP is also a very powerful tool for treating scars on the face and body.

What is the downtime after the microneedling with PRP (Vampire Facial)?

The downtime is minimal with only one to three days of mild redness, depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment.

When will I see results after the Vampire Facial?

You'll notice an immediate "glow" to your skin and it will continue to improve over the next few weeks. The full results can be seen up to 6 months post treatment as collagen production continues.

How many treatments are needed with the Vampire Facial to see optimal results?

We recommend a series of at least three treatments about four to six weeks apart to see the best results. You can then do the treatment about once a year to maintain these results.
