PLATELET-RICH FIBRIN FOR UNDER-EYES
You probably have enough of those dark circles that makes you look tired and older.
You might have bought several concealers in a frantic search to find a miracle product to help you hide them. Unfortunately, even if make-up can help a bit, they simply conceal and are not an answer to this issue.
Here is the thing, Dark circles or hollow under eyes have a variety of causes. Indeed, that can be related to genetics, thin skin, chronic illness, or bone and tissue loss.
As we age, we experience volume loss, loss of facial fat, muscles atrophy, and bones begin to recede, all of which impact the under the eyes area and lead to a more sunken look and dark circles. Moreover, with age, we also lose collagen and this accentuates the thinning skin in this delicate area.
- Dark Circles on Fair Skin tone
For those fair-skinned, the thinning skin will make your under-eye color with that blue or purple look.
- Dark Circles on darker skin tone
For those with darker skin tones, more often than not, the dark circles are more related to genetics rather than thinning skin. For instance, the issue of hyperpigmentation is more prevalent in darker skin tones than fairer skin types.
- Multiple reasons
This said, for either darker skin or fairer skin tones, there is a multitude of possible causes for chronic dark circles. Henceforth, we need to assess each person’s unique condition that leads to under-eye circles.
Can PRF help with Dark Circles & Sunken Eyes?
Everyone would love to have a magic treatment that can reverse and treat dark circles, but unfortunately, it’s more complicated than that. This being said PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) is definitely our favorite to improve dark circles in a 100% natural way.
Indeed, PRF, which comes from your own blood helps collagen production and new cell growth. As a result, PRF helps tighten thinning skin under the eyes and improves the overall tone and texture of the under eye area. Furthermore,This is an ideal treatment for a variety of skin tones and improves hyperpigmentation.
PRF vs Dermal Fillers
Our preference between dermal fillers and PRF is the latter one. The reason being that traditional fillers injected under the eyes can potentially lead to a puffy look or even increase a blueish appearance to the area. Moreover, fillers can also in some cases sink to the lower part of the face. Furthermore, many of them do not address fine lines and crepey skin under the eyes, whereas PRF actually stimulates collagen production and cell growth. Additionally, Platelet-Rich Fibrin is a 100% natural treatment that heal from within.
PRF under eye injections take approximately 45 minutes, and we recommend a minimum of 2 treatments spaced a few weeks apart.
How do we obtain Platelet-Rich Fibrin?
We harness PRP (platelet-rich Fibrin) from the patient’s own blood. The procedure is as follows:
- First, a small sample of blood is drawn in a similar manner as with a routine blood test.
- The blood is spun in a dedicated centrifuge to separate out the platelets and rich growth factors.
- We subsequently inject the PRF substance into the under-eye area to improve dark circles and also the skin texture.
