Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) with Growth Factor Delivered with Eclipse Microneedling

Skin Rejuvenation in San Antonio and Boerne, TX

What is Platelet rich plasma (PRP)?

PRP is a healing method using a patient’s own blood. Your blood contains hundreds of proteins called growth factors, which are very important in the healing process. It can be used for a variety of injuries and facial concerns.

The growth factor of PRP stimulates stem cells to produce new tissue as quickly as possible, which is why platelet rich plasma is so effective in the healing process.

Some advantages of PRP with growth factor include:

  • Faster Healing – PRP helps increase tissue development due to its growth factors, resulting in faster tissue regeneration. Faster healing decreases the risk of later infections, complications, and discomfort.
  • Safety – Disease transmission is a non-issue since the blood is harvested from the patient’s own blood supply. The amount of blood needed is small and can be collected during a routine outpatient procedure.

There is a new way to administer PRP with growth factor – the Eclipse microneedling pen. The Eclipse MicroPen™ uses a sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles to create tiny injuries to the skin. This initiates the skin’s repair process to produce collagen and elastin naturally, which is ideal for smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks.

Dr. Elizabeth McRae, certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, has led McRae MD Medical Laser Spa to become widely recognized for improving the well-being and quality of life for every patient.
