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.

 

Once enough PRP has been harvested, it is then reinjected where it is needed.

For PRP treatments in the under-eye area, platelet-rich plasma is injected into the skin using a very fine needle to minimize pain. This injection treatment can be combined with other stimulating rejuvenation procedures like microneedling or laser resurfacing to give superior results for treating fine lines, wrinkles, and even acne scarring. PRP injections should only be performed by providers who have received training for this service to reduce the risk of complications caused by incorrect administration.

The time needed for PRP under-eye treatments is approximately 30 minutes from the preparation of the face to the end of the patient’s appointment. This allows patients to have their treatments done quickly during their lunch hour–ensuring even the busiest of patients can obtain results with platelet-rich plasma injections!

WHAT RESULTS CAN BE EXPECTED WITH A PRP UNDER-EYE TREATMENT?

PRP injections in the under-eye area are typically used to treat wrinkles around the eyes, dark circles, and puffiness. During an initial consultation appointment, the treatment provider will determine the patient’s skin health and unique goals to determine if they will see the desired results. It is important that patients understand that platelet-rich plasma injections are not designed to give the same results as surgical procedures such as a brow lift or eyelid lift.

PRP TEAR TROUGH BEFORE AND AFTER

It is always beneficial to offer before and after photos of previous patients in the practice that have undergone PRP under-eye injections to allow potential patients to visualize what can be achieved with this service and to ensure they have realistic expectations of the final results.

Below is an example of the results that can be achieved with platelet-rich plasma injections provided by professionals with proper training and experience:

HOW LONG DOES PRP UNDER THE EYES LAST?

Though PRP under-eye treatments last longer than other injectable methods on the market today, it is essential that patients understand that this treatment is not permanent.

For many patients, PRP injections will improve one’s under-eye appearance for anywhere between one to two years, depending on the patient’s current skin condition (and severity of concerns) and one’s age.

With platelet-rich plasma injections for under-eye treatment, patients will notice results after just the first treatment. However, we encourage patients to consider three treatments spread approximately four weeks apart and then perform maintenance injections every six months.

IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME OR SIDE EFFECTS ASSOCIATED WITH PRP UNDER-EYE TREATMENTS?

With PRP under-eye treatments, patients typically have no downtime needed for recovery and minimal side effects or complications. Some patients 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.

Most people can resume normal activities the following day, though they should ask their provider about aftercare instructions and any changes they should monitor. Other side effects that may be noticed after treatments include bruising at the injection site, minor swelling, and mild itching and irritation.

Patients are educated on the process of PRP injections and can ask questions about the process. Because platelet-rich plasma injections use the patient’s own plasma from their blood, it is non-toxic, natural, and has no risk of allergic reactions. When properly performed by a trained and experienced professional, patients can expect safety and efficacy from their treatments.

After treatment, patients are encouraged to avoid touching the injection site for the next 24 hours and avoid taking Aspirin for pain relief as it can lead to complications. Patients should also avoid alcohol, exfoliation, and massage for approximately 72 hours after their procedure has been performed. Icing the area and sleeping with the head elevated are also recommendations from providers to reduce swelling. Following these aftercare instructions can significantly reduce the risk of any complications or problems arising from the procedure.
