In an effort to combat the signs of aging, men and women are often willing to undergo surgery to achieve desired improvements.

However, patients can avoid the risks, anesthesia, and recovery associated with these procedures and rejuvenate their skin and appearance naturally.

PRP microneedling with Eclipse MicroPen triggers the body’s innate healing response and then infuses skin with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and growth factors.

As a result, new collagen and elastin fill in wrinkles, lines, and acne scars, and patients are left with smooth, supple, and bright skin.

Here’s how PRP microneedling can help you can achieve younger skin without surgery.

What Is PRP Microneedling With Eclipse Micropen?

Eclipse MicroPen is an automated microneedling device that is preferred by many aesthetic experts for its safety, efficacy, and customizable treatment options.

It uses 12 sterile surgical grade needles to create microchannels in the skin surfaces.

These tiny punctures are able to initiate a wound healing effect and also serve a microchannels through which platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can travel to the skin’s dermis.

What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and How Is It Obtained for Treatment?

Platelet-rich plasma is obtained by taking a small sample of the patient’s own blood and placing it in a centrifuge machine. This device spins the blood for approximately 10 minutes to separate the platelet-rich portion from other parts of the blood.

PRP is so desirable because it contains numerous growth-factors. When activated, these factors increase collagen, elastin, fibrin mesh, and blood vessel formation, promote healthy cell production, and repair damaged cells.

What to Expect From a PRP Microneedling Treatment?

To start, a blood sample is taken from the patient and a topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area. After the numbing cream has taken effect, microneedling is performed with the Eclipse MicroPen.

Finally, the patient’s own PRP is re-injected and deeply penetrates the skin through the tiny holes created by the microneedling process. Because Eclipse PRP is close to a physiological pH level, it minimizes any feelings of stinging or burning.

What Are the Benefits of PRP Microneedling With Eclipse Micropen?

This procedure allows patients to rejuvenate their skin and fill lines, wrinkles, and acne scars using a natural substance from their own body.

It’s often used to treat crinkling around the eyes, hair growth on the scalp, face, jawline, neck, chest and décolletage, back of hands, and wound healing and scar removal throughout the body.

Additionally, PRP microneedling can lift saggy skin, restore volume, improve tone and texture, diminish hyperpigmentation, and smooth stretch marks and surgical scars.
