Thinning hair is a common problem that many men and women will deal with as they age. Some individuals begin losing hair as early as their twenties. This may be due to many factors such as emotional trauma, medications, and hormonal changes. The main reason men and women’s hair thins is because of genetics.
Thinning occurs when hair follicles shrink and fall out due to the size being too small. Balding may cause you to feel older than you truly are and make you self-conscious of your appearance. A revolutionary technology called Eclipse will increase hair regrowth and help you regain your youthful locks when combined with micro needling. This treatment commonly boosts our patient’s confidence and makes them look much younger!
What is an Eclipse PRP Technology?
Eclipse is a new PRP technology that implements a gel to separate impurities like red blood cells and white blood cells from the PRP.
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma and is composed of the platelets and plasma found in your own blood. The serum contains natural growth factors that help improve the quality of your skin and increase the size of hair follicles. Eclipse technology helps to create a purer form of PRP that is easily collected. When the PRP is combined with a minimally-invasive micro needling process, the combination will help increase hair growth.
PRP micro-needling treatments have been shown to regrow and thicken hair.
The Skin Care LA staff use a handheld micro-needling device that contains a cartridge of tiny, short pins at one end. The application of tiny needles stimulates blood flow and causes your skin to increase the production of essential elements, like collagen. The needles apply microlesions that allows PRP to help rebuild the deep levels of the dermis.
This treatment rejuvenates your skin and restores your hair!

During your personal consultation, you will have have the opportunity to discuss your hair loss concerns with one of our highly qualified team members. Our team will assess your hair and determine a method of treatment that will help you achieve your desired results.
The treatment steps will be discussed along with potential risks and expected outcomes. Most patients require multiple treatments to achieve their ideal hair goal and the best long term results. Together, you and your specialist will determine how many Eclipse PRP micro-needling procedures will supply the best results. Eclipse PRP treatments are commonly spaced out by a month to allow your skin ample time to heal.
Towards the end of your private meeting, you will choose a date and time for your upcoming procedure. The doctor will then instruct you on how best to prepare and what to expect after the micro-needling treatment.
The first step of an Eclipse PRP micro-needling treatment is to have your blood drawn. Either eleven or twenty-two milliliters of blood will be drawn. The blood will then be centrifuged for ten minutes, allowing the impurities to separate from the PRP. The patented Eclipse gel will help separate the PRP from the other components of your blood to create a pure form of PRP. The PRP will then be separated and placed in a syringe for re-injection.
A topical numbing agent will be placed on your scalp to enhance your comfort and experience of the treatment.
Your hair will be washed to remove any bacteria and then your doctor will begin the micro-needling treatment. Small, short needles will be applied in a stamping motion. The small punctures created in the skin will help stimulate blood flow and collagen.
After the micro-needling process, your doctor will inject the PRP serum into the dermal layer of your scalp.
The Eclipse PRP procedure can take up to ninety minutes.
Recovery & Results
You may experience slight swelling and discoloration upon leaving your appointment. These symptoms should not hinder you from returning to your regular day.
It is important not to take anti-inflammatories during this time as it may hinder your initial recovery period. Swelling and redness should diminish within a couple days.

It is important to remember that everyone’s skin and hair production is different and will impact their restoration journey.

PRP skin treatment
This procedure is essentially the same as the one completed on your scalp. However, this treatment will be performed on certain areas of your face that you are concerned with.
It is simple to combine your hair loss treatment with a PRP skin technique. PRP micro needling is known to reduce acne, scarring, irregularities, and wrinkles.
The procedure will invoke your skin’s healing process and boost your collagen levels. Collagen is a building block of the skin and will improve its tone and texture. The PRP will help your skin regrow quickly and will help to improve its quality. For glowing, clear skin; a PRP skin treatment will provide transformational results.
Injectable fillers are another excellent procedure to combine with your hair improvement. This treatment is performed with a syringe and thin needle. A smooth gel will be applied to an area of your face to add volume, reduce wrinkles or augment your natural features.
Dermal fillers have been made with a specific facial location in mind.
At Self Care LA, we offer a plethora of dermal fillers to meet your needs. Juvederm is a group of hyaluronic acid-based fillers that have grown very popular over recent years. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in your skin and is what helps skin have a dewy, healthy look. When injected into the skin, it will interact naturally and hydrate it.
Self Care LA offers Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Vollure XC, Juvederm Voluma XC, and Juvederm Volbella XC. These fillers can be applied in the cheeks, midfacial region, lips and where moderate to severe creases exist. With Dermal Fillers, you can regain a smooth appearance while the Eclipse PRP micro-needling hair treatment restores your hair. The result? A transformed, younger appearance!
Clear + Brilliant
This laser treatment is gentle and helps to renew the skin’s upper layer.
This procedure will help diminish wrinkling and return a youthful glow to your face. Clear + Brilliant does not require a long recovery period and can reduce pore size, improve skin tone, reduce sun damage, correct pigmentation, and improve your skin’s texture.
The procedure includes a handheld laser device that will be held over the skin to apply laser technology to heat up the tissue. A topical anesthetic will be administered before application to improve your experience. Once completed, your skin may be slightly red but patients are commonly able to return to their regular daily activities. This procedure takes about thirty minutes and any symptom should abate within a few hours. You will notice smoother, firm skin within a few weeks.
