PRP Eye Rejuvenation
The eyes are often the first thing we notice about a person, and addressing issues in this area of the face can help us appear rested and years younger!
Have you been searching for a natural approach to address crepey skin, dark circles/pigmentation, wrinkles, sagging skin, and mild to moderate bags underneath your eyes? PRP (platelet rich plasma) is an excellent, all-natural treatment to rejuvenate the tissue underneath the eyes!
This treatment is extremely safe because we use PRP from your own blood. The PRP contains growth factors which stimulate the production of collagen and elastin resulting in smoother, brighter, and tighter tissue! The growth factors also improve local blood supply and hydration. This treatment can also be an excellent preventative treatment as we age!
A lot of patients choose PRP Eye Rejuvenation over fillers since this is a more natural treatment. PRP is also superior is cases where patients are wanting to improve the crepey appearance of the tissue.
What should I avoid before my treatment?
You should avoid aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications (i.e. ibuprofen), blood thinners (if cleared by your physician), herbal supplements, Vitamin E and fish oil for at least one week to minimize bruising risk. These may be restarted immediately after your treatment.
What can you expect after your treatment?
The tissue will be swollen for 24-48 hours since we are injecting volume into the space underneath the eyes. As the PRP absorbs, the swelling will quickly resolve. Then you might notice a return to baseline before the complete effects of the regenerative process kick in.
Some patients will notice minimal bruising that should also resolve quickly. Cold gel packs/ice may be applied if desired.
Most patients do not report any pain or discomfort after this treatment.
Some patients will see immediate improvements. But we definitely encourage you to be patient over the next several weeks as your body builds new collagen and the appearance of the tissue improves!
How often will I need treatments?
At Owen Health Group, we usually recommend a package of 3 monthly treatments or until desired results are achieved. Results can last anywhere from 6-12 months. In order to maintain results, we recommend a touch-up treatment about once a year. This time frame of course varies depending on your age, the initial appearance of the tissue, and your individual response to the treatment.
