Scar Correction

Micro-Needling Therapy With or Without Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

This treatment involves using the latest micro-needling technology, a pen-like medical device and a 12 microneedle sterile cartridge. The application will create several micro-channels into the skin surface, varying from 0.1-2 mm in depth, to promote new collagen formation, scaring breakdown and cell proliferation. This cell multiplication process results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers as well as in new capillaries for an improved blood supply. The treatment is performed in conjunction with topical application of Hyaluronic Acid and EGF-DNA Epidermal Growth Factor.

As a hyaluronic acid based complex, this phenomenally effective concentrate retains 1000 times its own volume in moisture. The deeply penetrating, intense hydration protects fragile skin from the environmental pollutants that cause premature aging while smoothing existing fine lines and wrinkles. EGF-DNA is a scientifically formulated cosmetic miracle concentrate that turns back the clock. Enriched with a human-like epidermal growth factor, it repairs skin tissue and stimulate the skin’s own cell renewal properties for firmer, healthier looking skin. Highly effective when used pre and post micro-peel and laser procedures to maximize skin recovery. This treatment is concluded by application of the Le Mieux Bio-Cell Mask. Le Mieux Bio Cell + Mask is the most innovative of its kind in the skincare market. Made of highly specialized Freeze Dried Marine Collagen Mask, it incorporates wound care technology for healing and soothing while dramatically reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In just 15-20 minutes, see amazing results that you thought could never be possible from a mask. Without a single doctor's visit, without a single injection, your skin will look incredibly brighter, firmer, and smooth.

Activating 8 Growth Factors: Platelet-rich plasma is similar to HA fillers because it can be injected to sculpt the face. But, here's the best part: not only does the PRP cause an increase in the volume, PRP contains at least 8 growth factors that will over a long period of time, continually work like a rejuvenating agent. By activating these growth factors, all 3 parts of the aging process improve:

  • The skin color becomes a "younger" color because of new blood vessel formation.
  • New collagen formations in the dermis lifts the face back to a more youthful shape.
  • Because the growth factors are working to build a new dermis, the epidermis (the outer most layers of your skin) appears smoother.

Micro-Needling Facials with PRP

  • Collagen Induction Therapy in conjunction with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
  • Tighten and lift skin to reduce wrinkles and fine lines
  • Improve acne scars and stretch marks
  • Minimize pore size, rejuvenate tissue using the Vampire Stem Cell activation process.

The Stem Cells In Your Blood

Scientists have known for years that unipotent stem cells lie dormant in the skin and provide the building blocks for healing when you sustain a burn or cut. Until recently, physicians had no convenient way to stimulate those stem cells to grow new tissue. By utilizing the growth factors found in the blood (specifically the platelets), a physician can activate the unipotent stem cells already in the skin and tell those cells to grow new, younger-appearing skin.

During the process of the Vampire FaceLift® Procedure™, stem cell science is used to tell the body to grow new younger skin. Unipotent stem cells, which grow only one specific tissue, and can be found in every part of the body. For example, unipotent stem cells in the liver grow new liver tissue. Unipotent stem cells in the skin grow new skin. Thus, the FaceLift® Procedure™ takes the cosmetic rejuvenation process to a higher level!

Growth Factor Production Known Effects

1. Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) - Stimulates fibroblasts to secrete collagenase to degrade the matrix during the remodeling phase.Stimulates keratinocyte and fibroblast proliferation.

2. Transforming Growth Factor- Promotes angiogenesis, up-regulates collagen production and inhibits degradation, promotes chemo attraction of inflammatory cells.

3. Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) - Endothelial cells promote angiogenesis during tissue hypoxia.

4. Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) - Promotes angiogenesis, granulation, and epithelialization via endothelial cell, fibroblast, and keratinocyte migration, respectively.

5. Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) - Attracts macrophages and fibroblasts to zone of injury. Promotes collagen and proteoglycan synthesis.

6. Interleukins, Macrophages, keratinocytes, endothelial cells, lymphocytes, fibroblasts, osteoblasts, basophils, mast cells - Activates fibroblast differentiation. Induces collagen and proteoglycan synthesis.

7. Colony Stimulating Factors - Stimulates granulocyte and macrophage proliferation.

8. Keratinocyte Growth Factor - Fibroblasts stimulate keratinocyte migration, differentiation, and proliferation.

Creating Platelet-Rich Plasma From You To You

Within a matter of minutes, your practitioner can create autologous, which means from you to you, PRP and activate your stem cells for the Vampire FaceLift® Procedure™.

Here's how:

First: the practitioner draws a similar amount of blood required for a basic lab test.

Second: the practitioner places the blood into a centrifuge and spins the blood at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood.

Third: The platelets are activated by using one of two methods that are natural to your body. This activation of platelets is the final step in producing your very own platelet-rich plasma. The best way to visualize PRP is to remember the yellow "goo" that surrounded the scab you had when you fell on your knee as a child. The thickening of the serum to form that yellow material holds specific growth factors in place that call stem cells to the area and activates them to create new skin.

Activating 8 Growth Factors

Platelet-rich plasma is similar to HA fillers because it can be injected to sculpt the face. But, here's the best part: not only does the PRP cause an increase in the volume, PRP contains at least 8 growth factors that will over a long period of time, continually work like a rejuvenating agent.

By activating these growth factors, all 3 parts of the aging process improve:

1. The skin color becomes a "younger" color because of new blood vessel formation.

2. New collagen formations in the dermis lifts the face back to a more youthful shape.

3. Because the growth factors are working to build a new dermis, the epidermis (the outer most layers of your skin) appears smoother.

Micro-Needling Therapy for Acne

The microneeding therapy described above (with optional PRP, additional cost), however this performed in conjunction with EGF-DNA Epidermal Growth Factor Serum followed by topical application of vitamin C. EGF-DNA is a scientifically formulated cosmetic miracle concentrate that turns back the clock. Enriched with a human-like epidermal growth factor, it repairs skin tissue and stimulate the skin’s own cell renewal properties for firmer, healthier looking skin. Highly effective when used pre and post micro-peel and laser procedures to maximize skin recovery.

Micro-Needling Therapy for Hair Restoration

Using our latest micro-needling device in conjunction with patient derived platelet rich plasma was demonstrated in many research studies to activate hair growth. This micro needling stimulation causes microtrauma to the dermis that induces other healing and growth repair cells into action. The highly concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then topically applied into the scalp.

The PRP contains many growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle’s growth. Some patient’s chose to have PRP performed every three (3) to four (4) months as early data suggests regular or semiannual PRP treatments can stimulate hair growth.

PRP specific cells that causes hair growth include:

  • Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)—promotes blood vessel growth, cell replication, skin formation;
  • Transforming Growth-Factor-Beta (TGF-b)—promotes growth of matrix between cells, bone metabolism;
  • Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)—promotes blood vessel formation;
  • Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)—promotes cell growth and differentiation, blood vessel formation, collagen formation;
  • Fibroblast Growth Factor-2 (FGF-2)—promotes growth of specialized cells and blood vessel formation; and,
  • Insulin Like Growth Factor - (IGF)—a regulator of normal physiology in nearly every type of cell in the body.

What is Automated Micro-Needling?

Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. Eclipse Micropen™ also creates superficial micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin.

What are the Benefits?

The benefits of micro-needling are a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Eclipse Micropen™ also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.

What areas of the body can I treat?

Eclipse Micropen™ can be used on all parts of the body; Face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.

How is the procedure done?

A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse Micropen™. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.

What does it Feel Like?

The feeling associated with the Eclipse Micropen™ is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.

What is the downtime?

Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. Utilizing the Eclipse Skin Revive System™, or other quality skincare products, provided by your skincare provider, can help to speed up the healing process.

When will I see the results?

Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.

How many treatments will I need?

Some patients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
