What is PRP and Eclipse Micropen?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. Platelet Rich Plasma comes from, you've guess it... your own blood! Blood is composed mainly of red blood cells, white blood cells, Platelets and Plasma. So what's so important about the Platelets and Plasma? The platelets in our blood are cells designed to heal injuries. In concentrated form the platelets can be used to help heal those injuries. For years, athletes, dentists and reconstructive surgeons have been injecting the PRP into joints to help speed up the process of healing. Now the benefits are being applied to other fields of medicine such as natural medical aesthetics.
Effects and Benefits:
- • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- • Tightens and tones the skin
- • Replaces lost volume
- • Reduces crow's feet & dark circles under the eyes
- • Diminishes acne scars
- • Adds a more natural effect with dermal fillers
The potential benefits of PRP have led to a recent widespread interest in its use for anti-aging and regenerative purposes. The platelet rich plasma helps you look younger without injecting artificial substances into your body. In fact, the treatment uses your body's own blood to regenerate and tighten your skin.
How does Dr. Roham obtain my PRP?
Dr. Roham will collect about a vial or two of blood from your arm. He will then place the collected blood vials in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins and separates the platelets and plasma from the rest of the blood components. After the centrifuge is done, the extraction of the platelet rich plasma takes place.
Micro-Needling with PRP Procedure
Application of the PRP is used along with the Eclipse Micropen™. The MicroPen contains a sterile needle tip comprised of 12 tiny micro-needles, used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. A thin layer of topical gel will be applied to your skin and the appropriate treatment depth will be selected based on your needs.
What areas of the body can I treat?Areas to be treated include face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. The device can also be used on the scalp to treat hair thinning.
How long the procedure take?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
What does my downtime look like?
Immediately after the treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time will depend on the depth of the needles used and the number of overlapping passes. On average patients are red for 2-4 days, but some may heal completely in 24 hours.
When will I see results?
You will notice an immediate "glow" to your skin while visible changes will develop over the course of several weeks. Dr. Roham recommends most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For deeper wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.

PRP for Hair Restoration requires several treatments that will be scheduled every 4 weeks for the first 3 treatments and then every 3 months. Number of treatments depends on individual conditions.
