How is the procedure done ?

Our Spark Health doctors will draw an amount of blood from your arm and place this in the centrifuge to isolate the PRP. After numbing gel is applied to the treatment area, your Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) will then be applied topically. A sterile tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen™. 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 is very similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin.

When will I see 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 over months as collagen production continues.

What is the recovery time ?

Immediately after the treatment you will notice a slight redness to the skin, similar to a mild sunburn. The total healing time depends on the patience and the condition of the skin. On average, patients are slightly red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients can heal in as little as 24 hours.

How long does the procedure take ?

The procedure takes 30-40 minutes depending on the size of the area treated. The full visit is 1.5-2 hours.

How many treatments will I need ?

Most patients will need 1-3 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart. For extensive or advanced signs of aging, 6-8 sessions may be needed, spaced a month apart.
