PRP Under Eye Treatment

PRP is an acronym for Platelet-Rich Plasma. This platelet-rich plasma is made by taking a blood sample from you, containing red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets that release growth factors. These growth factors, when injected under the eye, stimulate collagen production, providing an anti-aging effect on the facial appearance.

Since it is all-natural and derived from your body. It is a generally a safe procedure for anyone.

PRP injections in the under-eye area are an excellent treatment for addressing fine lines and wrinkles in this region for optimum rejuvenation. PRP contains growth factors that stimulate collagen production when injected into the skin. By stimulating new collagen production, platelet-rich plasma helps tighten loose skin around the eyes to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles like crow’s feet, while also eliminating bags underneath the eyes.

PRP under eye treatment is also an excellent way to treat dark circles as they increase blood flow through this region. Puffiness and discoloration around the eyes are less visible. While the results are not permanent, these injections can help you look more youthful and refreshed, especially when compared to other injectable.

First, patients will undergo a blood draw.

The blood draw allows the provider to then extract the platelet-rich plasma from the patient’s own blood using a centrifuge.

PRP under-eye treatments typically have no downtime needed for recovery and minimal side effects or complications. You may experience a mild tingling sensation after the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the skin, but it resolves on its own quickly and does not cause much discomfort for most. Other side effects that may be noticed after treatments include bruising at the injection site, minor swelling, and mild itching and irritation.

While PRP injections are used throughout the body to reduce the appearance of aging by stimulating collagen production in new ways, they are incredibly effective at addressing under-eye issues.
