WHAT IS PRP?
So, what are PRP injections? PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, injections are a type of injection that uses a patient’s own blood to stimulate healing and regrowth in cells. This injection helps to stimulate the patient’s own healing and regrowth processes, by providing a rich source of healing proteins, growth factors, and cytokines. It been used to help treat skin conditions such as acne, wrinkles, and scarring. There is also promising research being done to investigate the potential of PRP injections to treat degenerative diseases, such as osteoarthritis, and to promote hair growth.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PRP FOR EYE REJUVENATION?
PRP is an increasingly popular treatment for eye rejuvenation. PRP is a natural, non-surgical procedure that can help reduce the signs of aging around the eyes, such as fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles, and puffiness. This procedure has many benefits, including increased collagen production, improved skin tone and texture, and a reduction in puffiness and dark circles. Furthermore, the results of PRP for eye rejuvenation are long-lasting, and there is no downtime or recovery period required.
Additional benefits of PRP for treating the under-eye area include:
1. Non-invasive: PRP is a non-surgical treatment that requires no downtime. This makes it an attractive option for those who are looking for a way to address aesthetic concerns without having to go through surgery.
2. Natural: PRP is a natural treatment that uses the patient’s own blood. Therefore, there is no risk of an allergic reaction, and the results are long-lasting.
3. Safe: PRP is a safe and effective treatment option as there is no risk of infection or adverse reactions.
4. Quick: PRP treatments are relatively quick, taking about 30 minutes to complete.
HOW DOES PRP WORK?
When it comes to getting PRP injections, the procedure is relatively simple. First, the patient’s blood is taken and placed in a centrifuge. The sample is then spun to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood. The PRP is then injected into the areas of the body that need treatment. The entire process takes about an hour and can be performed in the comfort of a doctor’s office.
HOW LONG DO RESULTS LAST?
Patients should be aware that PRP under-eye treatments, while lasting longer than other available injectables, are not permanent. Improvement to one’s under-eye appearance can last between one and two years, depending on the patient’s age, skin condition, and the severity of the concern. Results will be seen after the first treatment, but we suggest three treatments spread four weeks apart, followed by maintenance injections every six months.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR PRP INJECTIONS?
Patients with active acne, rosacea, lupus, or other autoimmune diseases should not receive PRP injections, nor should those with a history of bleeding disorders or using blood-thinning medications. However, PRP injections are a great way to reduce signs of aging, particularly around the eyes.
