Eclipse PRP Treatment – Vampire Facial / Vampire Facelift

Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment in Tucson

Platelet-rich plasma background

Eclipse PRP Treatments combine the advanced Eclipse Micropen 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, and also regrow hair. PRP Treatments can also reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars, stretch marks and wrinkles. Because PRP is exclusively retrieved from the body, it is well received by the body because of it’s 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.

 

Blood-Derived Growth Factors

The internal essence of your blood contains life-giving fundamental protein growth factors.  PRP utilizes a leading-edge, patented technology that is specifically designed.  With a simple, quick and advantageous process, we are able to to derive a high concentration of biological nutrient-rich cells and create autologous platelet-rich plasma.

 

PRP Process at Greenspring Rejuvenation

  1. During a short office visit a small amount of a patient’s own blood is drawn into a small vacuum collection tube containing a proprietary separator gel.  The blood is placed in a centrifuge and the red cells are isolated from the platelet-rich plasma.
  2. The platelet-rich plasma is activated to release at least eight essential growth factors and signaling proteins.  PRP is a technology that deploys aspects of blood-based biochemistry.
  3. The PRP can be injected to deficient areas and micro-needled into the skin to trigger the body’s healing ability and rejuvenate from the inside-out. 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.

Growth Factor Production Known Effects

Epidermal Growth Factor (EFG)
Plays a significant role in the regulation of cell growth, proliferation and differentiation during the remodeling phase.  Stimulates keratinocyte and fibroblast production.
Transforming Growth Factor (TGF)
Promotes angiogenesis which is the physiological process involving the growth of new blood vessels.
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)
An important signaling protein involved in both vasculogenesis and angiogenesis that may help the growth of blood vessels from pre-existing vasculature.
Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF)
Promotes angiogenesis, granulation, and epithelialization for the intricate process of Tissue repairing itself after injury.
Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)
Attracts macrophages and fibroblasts to the zone of injury.  Promotes collagen growth and proteoglycan synthesis.
Collagen Stimulating Growth Factor
Stimulates granulocyte and macrophage proliferation for the growth of healthy tissue and blood cells.
Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF)
Keratinocyte migration, differentiation, and proliferations may optimize conditions for healing and generation of new skin.
