Undereye PRP injections Q&A

What causes under-eye sagging?

Many people experience changes in the skin and tissue beneath their eyes. Sagging in this area of the face, often called under-eye bags, is a common sign of aging.

Under-eye sagging often begins when the muscles and other tissues around your eyes weaken. Without the same support, the skin droops. Fat in the area can then settle into that lax skin, making under-eye bags even more pronounced.

Additional causes of under-eye sagging include:

  • Insufficient sleep
  • Smoking
  • Allergies
  • Fluid retention
  • Genetics

If you notice changes in the skin beneath your eyes, there are treatments that can help.

How do under-eye PRP injections work?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a solution created from a small volume of your blood. After a quick blood draw, your practitioner places the sample into a device called a centrifuge, which spins it at a high rate of speed.

This spinning separates the solid components from the liquid plasma, making extracting the platelets and returning them to the cleared plasma easy. Platelets are rich in unique proteins called growth factors that promote new cell development.

When injected into the skin beneath your eyes, PRP reduces inflammation and prompts your body to create new collagen and other tissues. Circulation in the area also improves.

Are under-eye PRP injections safe?

Because PRP comes from your own blood, your body will not reject the treatment, and there is a low risk of side effects. Many people choose PRP injections as an alternative to plastic surgery, which carries a much higher risk of side effects and requires extensive recovery time.

PRP results develop gradually. It can take a month or more for your body to create new tissue that reduces the appearance of under-eye sagging.

It’s essential to always work with medical professionals when considering advanced treatments like PRP injections. The team members at me.losangeles aesthetics have the skills and training needed to understand facial anatomy and to place injections safely and effectively.
