The under eye area is one of the first places to show signs of aging and wear and tear, and is also one of the most difficult places to treat. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) offers a safe and effective solution for rejuvenating the under eye area - and it’s completely natural.
Benefits of PRP
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentrated sample of your own blood, packed with growth factors and essential proteins that boost collagen and elastin production and are directly involved with tissue healing and regeneration. It’s a completely natural treatment, virtually eliminating the risk of complication or adverse reaction.
Why PRP Is Great for the Under Eye Area
The effects of PRP smooth, hydrate, and plump aging skin, naturally leading to:
The PRP Treatment Process
1. A small sample of your blood is drawn
2. The sample is spun in a centrifuge for 10 minutes, separating the platelets from the rest of the blood
3. The concentrated PRP is extracted and prepared for injection
4. A fine needle is used to gently and precisely deliver the PRP
What to Expect After Your Treatment
Directly after your treatment, you can expect some temporary effects:
These effects generally subside within a few hours up to 72 hours. While you may notice some positive results after a week, full results can take 3-6 months. For optimal results, I recommend a series of 3 treatments spaced out by 4-6 weeks. After this, PRP injections become a maintenance procedure, 1-2 times a year.
