Eclipse PRP® Hair Restoration

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy stimulates hair growth through vascularization and angiogenesis, and encourages hair follicles to extend the duration of the anagen phase of the growth cycle. PRP therapy for hair loss is shown to increase blood supply to the hair follicle, triggering natural hair growth.

Growth factors found in PRP include several intracellular structures such as glycogen, lysosomes and alpha granules that promote the healing and repair process. These help to reawaken the activity of the hair follicles and promote new hair growth. The use of PRP is scientifically shown to increase hair count, hair thickness, and the growth phase of the hair cycle.

Eclipse PRP® Treatment for Hair Loss in Women

Women lose hair for a variety of reasons, among them environmental factors, such as sun exposure, as well as body metabolism, hormones, and iron and thyroid levels. Female pattern hair loss may occur at any age with varying severity and becomes clinically detectable in about 3% of women by age 29, in 13% of women by 49, 19% by 69, and in 25% of women over 69.2. Clinical severity and progression tend to be more intense with earlier onset. The first complaints are typically a thinning ponytail, scalp visibility, and a gradual thinning of hair density on the central scalp.

Eclipse PRP® Treatment for Hair Loss in Men

Male pattern baldness, Androgenetic alopecia as it’s technically known in medicine, is the most common cause of hair loss in men. Approximately two-thirds of men will experience some level of hair loss by age 35, and by age 50, nearly 90 percent will notice significantly thinning hair.

How Does the Eclipse PRP® Treatment for Hair Work?

PRP therapy for hair loss is shown to increase blood supply to the hair follicle, triggering natural hair growth. Growth factors found in PRP include several intracellular structures, such as glycogen, lysosomes, and alpha granules, that promote the healing and repair process. These help to reawaken the activity of the hair follicles and promote new hair growth.

PRP-specific cells stimulate hair growth in a variety of ways, all leading to the growth of new hair. PRP specific cells promote blood vessel formation and growth, cell replication, and skin formation; promote growth of the matrix between cells, bone, metabolism; promote cell growth and differentiation collagen formation; and promote growth of specialized cells.

What to Expect with the Eclipse PRP® Hair Regrowth Process

The Eclipse method for PRP for hair regrowth begins with a standard blood draw from the patient’s arm. The tube of blood is put into a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. Then the plasma, rich in platelets, is removed from the tube and injected directly into a patient’s scalp at the hair follicles. Injections are typically spread across a half-inch area of thinning hair to ensure dense coverage.

Treatments are typically performed monthly for the first three to four months, and then every three to six months thereafter. This schedule is optimal for stimulating hair growth factors and stem cells associated with reducing hair loss.

After a treatment, most patients feel burning and stinging for five to 15 minutes. Patients are told to resume regular activities immediately but not to engage in rigorous exercise for 24 hours. This allows the PRP to be absorbed into the hair-bearing scalp. After 24 hours, patients can resume all activities.
