PRP injections in the under-eye area are an excellent treatment for addressing fine lines and wrinkles in this region for optimum rejuvenation. 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.
PRP under eye treatment is also an excellent way to treat dark circles as they increase blood flow through this region. Puffiness and discoloration around the eyes are less visible with as little as one treatment.
Growth factors in PRP can help stimulate the activity of hair follicles and promote new hair growth. Increasing hair count, hair thickness, and the growth phase of the hair cycle.
For best results, consistency is key. Treatments are typically performed once a month for the first three to four months, and then every three to six months thereafter, depending on the individual patient's response and results. Following this protocol, anticipated results can first be seen within two to three months.
Growth factors in PRP stimulate the body's healing response and can be used to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Best results are obtained by combining PRP injection and microneedling treatments.
