Under eye bags & circles can be caused by a number of genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors. This may be characterised by heaviness, dark pigmentation, or hollowing of the under-eye area. PRP injections provide an effective and non-invasive solution for the under-eyes, helping you to claim back a bright & youthful appearance once again.
Two of the most common cosmetic concerns affecting the eyes are dark under eye circles and eye bags. These concerns can be caused by a range of factors, with inadequate sleep being high on the list. A hectic and stressful lifestyle can also contribute, as can consuming a diet that’s high in salt and not getting enough exercise.
Most commonly experienced by those in their 20s and older, many people will experience these eye concerns at one time or another in their life. However, in some individuals they can persist and be experienced even when lifestyle changes are made to minimise them. This is because the skin beneath the eyes is susceptible to stretching, contributing to the formation of dark circles and eye bags. The natural ageing process is also a common culprit, causing ligaments and muscles in the face to weaken over time and lead to sagging, which can be particularly noticeable around the eye area.
PRP treatment for the under eye area involves injecting platelets into the skin to stimulate collagen production and regenerate skin tissue in the area. The platelets are extracted from a patient’s own blood before being injected back into the target area. This can have benefits for skin texture and tone, helping to minimise the appearance of under eye bags and dark circles. Results can often be seen within just a few months following PRP for eye bags or dark circles.
