Underye PRP injection is an amazing non surgical procedure for addressing fine lines and wrinkles. Platelett Rich Plasma (PRP) contains growth factors that stimulate collagen production when injected into the skin.
What exactly is PRP?
We all have platelets in our blood. PRP is 3-step procedure that involves having your blood:
Drawn from your arm
Placed into a machine that separates the platelets from the rest of your blood
Re-injected into you (only the part of your blood that contains a high concentration of platelets).
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 with as little as one treatment. While the results are not permanent, these injections can help patients looking for a more long-term option. Most patients who find great results from Undereye PRP treatments choose to return for treatments every 6-12 months.
PRP Under Eyes Downtime
Under eye treatment is minimally invasive. PRP treatment requires little downtime. Should be free free to return to work the 24-48 hours after treatment. Make sure to care for your newly treated skin properly, wash it gently and avoid exposure to strong sunlight or sun beds. Make sure to use ice packs to minimize swelling and bruising.
