PRP for eyes & Eye bags
The demand for PRP keeps rising for use in facial rejuvenation. It was almost inevitable that researchers and doctors alike would start to look into how this valuable medicine could be applied to the delicate skin around the eyes.
The modern world is not kind to our eyes and skin. Pollution in the air, stress at work and not enough sleep at home has led to tired and strained looking eyes the world over. Add in less than optimal diets along with dehydration and it’s no wonder people are looking for ways to revitalise their eyes.
Bags under the eyes can be a signal to those around you that you are tired and run down. Whilst dark circles around your eyes are normal from time to time, those who experience the issue on an almost daily basis most likely want a better solution than applying makeup and concealer.
First things first, lifestyle changes are always important if they can be implemented. We all live busy lives, but ensuring a healthy diet, plenty of water, a good night’s sleep and time away from work and worry all go a very long way in helping retain a youthful and lively appearance.
There are some aspects of dark bags under the eyes that are harder to avoid. As we age the collagen in our skin starts to break down and loosen. This can create a shadowed and creased appearance, with bags eventually forming under the lower eyelids.
Different skin tones can also lend themselves to the appearance of darker tones around the eyes. Lighter skin tones can make the blood vessels under the skin give off a blue hue whilst darker skin can pigment more heavily around the eyes. Sometimes despite living a healthy lifestyle you still cannot escape them.
Those who suffer with allergies such as hay fever or pet allergy can find themselves rubbing their eyes and sneezing or coughing. All these reactions can cause your eyes to water and tiny blood vessels to burst under the skin – all leading to a puffy and darker skin tone.

Injections of platelet rich plasma can go along way in repairing the skin around the eyes. Not only do they speed up blood vessel growth, they strengthen collagen and skin to give the skin a more full and youthful appearance.
The new blood vessels bring oxygen and nutrients to the tired skin and flush away toxins too. Any puffiness or loose skin is tightened and excess fat cells begin to be metabolised away.

PRP under eyes: how long does it last ?
Depending on your desired look, you may benefit from multiple PRP treatments. Several studies have looked at the best amount of injections to have and how often. We are still uncovering all the benefits of PRP but 1 injection every 4 weeks seems to be the best in the first instance.
After 3 injections it is best to wait and see how long the treatment works for you. Researchers and doctors have found that benefits are seen just a week after the first injection and improvements continue for months after the final treatment.
Most patients who find great results from PRP eye treatments choose to return for top ups around every 6 to 12 months.
PRP under eyes: Side effects
Fortunately there are few to no side effects on the fine skin surrounding the eyes. As PRP is an injected medicine there are unavoidable points where a small needle is used to introduce the treatment into the skin.
This can cause a small amount of swelling and tenderness that can be helped with a cool cloth or flannel. Just make sure not to put any strong lotions or thick makeup around the eyes immediately after treatment. By letting the skin breathe you are giving it the best chance of recovering from the treatment quickly and letting the benefits shine through.
PRP under eyes downtime
Under eye treatment is minimally invasive, meaning as little disturbance to you and your skin as possible. Aside from the points mentioned, PRP treatment under eyes requires little downtime, you should be free to return to work 24-48 hours after treatment.
Make sure to care for your newly treated skin properly, wash it gently and avoid exposure to strong sunlight or sun beds. Keep your skin happy and the treatment will get to work rejuvenating and revitalising your skin.
