PRP Infraorbital Treatment
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a high concentration of platelets surrounded in its own plasma. PRP contains eight essential protein growth factors that re-energize your cells into rejuvenating themselves. This treatment is an effective alternative for treating areas that are difficult to treat with traditional hyaluronic acid fillers, such as the area under the eyes. The growth factors in the PRP stimulate new collagen production which helps to improve skin texture, firmness and elasticity, increase volume and skin thickness, and reduce the appearance of dark circles caused by thin skin. A series of three treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is recommended.
What equipment is used?
Needle and vacutainer, similar to what is required for a basic blood test.
What will the procedure feel like?
PRP is created by having a small vial of your blood drawn by the clinician and spinning the sample in a centrifuge which isolates the platelet-rich plasma from the red blood cells. The plasma portion is then drawn into a syringe and injected into the area under the eyes or other areas of volume loss. Most patients find the treatment to be very tolerable.
Do I have to do anything to prepare in advance?
Patients should avoid aspirin and NSAIDs for 1 week prior to treatment. Use of topical treatments may be continued up to the day of treatment.
What will I look like afterwards?
It is expected to have mild swelling after the treatment which usually resolves after 1-3 days. Patients may experience a feeling of pressure in the area. Bruising may occur and last up to a week.
How many treatments are necessary?
We recommend a series of 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments are typically needed 1-2x per year.
When will I see results?
With a series of treatments, the majority of patients report being satisfied or very satisfied with results, noting improvement in dark circles, wrinkles, and laxity.
