Eclipse PRP for Hair Loss
What is Eclipse PRP?
Eclipse PRP is the latest innovation for hair restoration. Surgical hair restoration is an expensive procedure that does not treat your underlying medical problems. Eclipse PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is a non-surgical procedure that consists of injections into the scalp of your own platelets.
Platelet-Rich Plasma injections
PRP contains healing growth factors that allow tissue to regenerate and therefore multiply. These injections increase blood supply to hair follicles and also improve thickness.
Benefits of Eclipse PRP
- Simple: Fewer steps than other PRP (platelet-rich plasma) systems, and completed within 30 min.
- Fast: We are able to centrifuge with a single spin in a matter of minutes
- Patient Friendly: Small volume of blood are required for the treatment
Am I a candidate for Eclipse PRP?
If you suffer from any of the following conditions listed below, Eclipse PRP could be a great option to help restore hair loss.
- Androgenic Alopecia
- Traction Alopecia
Androgenetic alopecia is a common condition in both men and women. For men, this is commonly known as male-pattern baldness. Hair is lost in a well-defined pattern, often progressing to partial or complete baldness. In women, this condition leads to overall thinner hair all over the head without the effects of a receding hair line.
Traction alopecia is the gradual hair loss attributed to a pulling force applied on the hair. This can be due to frequent hair pulling styles such as tight ponytails, pigtails, or braids. If you find yourself relating to any of these conditions, Eclipse PRP can directly treat your problem areas. Call Dr. Callender to schedule a consultation appointment today.
Eclipse PRP Treatment Procedure
How long does treatment take?
Eclipse PRP utilizes your own body’s platelets which must be collected before injection. Collecting the platelets usually takes between 10 and 15 minutes. After this, the actual treatment only takes about 3-5 minutes with no downtime.
Do PRP Injections hurt?
Dr. Callender recommends local anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
PRP Results and Recovery
For optimal results from PRP, schedule monthly injections with our office for 3 to 4 months. After these initial injections, you should return to the office every 3 to 4 months for maintenance injections.
Immediately after treatment return home to take a hot shower and shampoo your hair. Do not use any topical preparations for at least 24 hours and do not color your hair for at least 48 hours.
