Additionally, it can be a sign of an underlying health issue, such as allergies or lack of sleep, which can further exacerbate the frustration.
Lastly, puffed eyes are difficult to conceal with makeup, leading to further frustration for those who want to hide them.
What is under-eye PRP treatment?
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) under-eye treatment, also known as Vampire Facial or Vampire Facelift, involves using the patient’s own blood to rejuvenate the skin under the eyes.
The treatment is gaining popularity due to its effectiveness in reducing the appearance of 下垂眼 [drooping eyes], dark circles, fine lines, and wrinkles.
The treatment involves taking a small amount of the patient’s blood, which is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood.
This concentrated plasma is then injected into the skin around the eyes, where it helps to repair damaged tissue and promote the growth of new cells.
The growth factors in the plasma also help to increase blood flow to the area, which can reduce inflammation and puffiness, and improve the overall appearance of the skin.
Benefits of under-eye PRP treatment:
1. Reduces dark circles
It can help reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.
2. Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
The treatment can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by promoting the production of new skin cells.
3. Improves skin texture
It can improve the overall texture of the skin under the eyes, making it smoother and firmer.
4. Minimal downtime
The treatment is a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure that requires minimal downtime.
5. Long-lasting results
PRP under-eye treatment can provide long-lasting results, with improvements in skin texture and appearance continuing for up to a year after treatment.
Side effects of under-eye PRP treatment:
1. Bruising and swelling
Patients may experience bruising and swelling around the treated area, which usually subsides within a few days.
It can cause discomfort during and after the procedure, although this can be managed with the use of local anaesthesia.
There is a small risk of infection associated with any injection or invasive procedure, but this can be minimized by ensuring that the treatment is carried out in a sterile environment.
4. Allergic reactions
In rare cases, patients may experience allergic reaction to the PRP solution or other components of the treatment.
5. Unsatisfactory results
Although under-eye PRP treatment is generally effective. However, some patients may not achieve the desired results.
Make sure to consult with a qualified and experienced practitioner to determine if the treatment is suitable for you. Even discuss any concerns you may have about the procedure.
