Eclipse PRP for Hair Restoration
Eclipse PRP is the latest innovation in hair restoration. Eclipse PRP High Concentration 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.
What is PRP?
Platelet-Rich Plasma, PRP, is your own harvested platelets in a small volume of plasma which releases growth factors when applied to the patient.
How Are My Platelets Harvested?
At our office in San Antonio, we will utilize a specialized blood collection tube and draw a small amount of blood from your body. This process takes no more than a few minutes and is similar to what occurs with a basic lab test. Once that blood is drawn the tube is placed in a centrifuge for 10 minutes. This separates the blood and the platelets. Once these platelets are concentrated in the plasma they are able to be applied back to the body to encourage growth and signal proteins in that area.
Is PRP Safe?
Since PRP uses your own blood there is virtually no risk of allergic reaction or rejection from the body.
How Does Eclipse PRP Increase Hair Growth?
Once your platelets are separated and concentrated in plasma they are able to be reapplied to the body. These platelets encourage growth, allowing tissues to regenerate and continue to multiply.
Is PRP Painful?
PRP is not an incredibly painful procedure, but there could be some irritation in the area upon application. It is not likely that there will be burning or stinging as the pH levels are not extreme, but redness in the area is not uncommon.
How Many Treatments Will I Need To Restore My Hair?
It is likely that you will need between 2-4 treatments scheduled one month apart. Some patients may require more treatments to see optimal results. A treatment plan will be discussed during your consultation.
Recovery Time After PRP Injections
There is no downtime after this procedure. You can shower as normal the night of the procedure but should refrain from any dyes or harsh chemicals for at least 48 hours.
