How often to get a PRP eye procedure depends on the condition of your skin to begin with, as well as your treatment goals. Typically, a series of 3 scheduled 4-6 weeks apart is recommended for best results.
What Is a PRP Under Eye Treatment?
Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP is a top treatment for regenerating skin from the inside out. It’s all because of the healing growth factors extracted from your own blood. Called “liquid gold”, these powerhouse proteins spark a strong process of repair, when injected under the skin. As a result, they support stem cell growth. They boost the production of collagen and elastin. They encourage blood circulation to the area of treatment. Gradually and naturally, volume loss that’s caused by the natural course of aging is reversed. Specifically, the under-eye area is restored, resulting in a brighter, smoother, more youthful appearance.
Immediately following treatment, the area may flush or appear red, which usually subsides within 2-3 days. Mild tingling, swelling and possible bruising after PRP injection may occur. Arnica is a supplement that can minimize bruising and makeup may be worn 1 hour after treatment.
