Why Dark Circles Develop

Unfortunately, dark circles beneath the eyes happen to everyone. The skin under the eyes is already very thin and delicate, and with age, the skin in this area begins to lose collagen and elastin. This means that the skin becomes thinner, which causes the blood vessels (“dark circles”) underneath to begin to show.

How Does PRP Help?

PRP addresses dark circles under the eyes because it restores elasticity, generates volume, and boosts collagen and elastin — which can hide the blood vessels (dark circles) with thicker, more youthful skin. PRP for eyes requires minimal downtime, provides long-lasting results, and is completely natural.

How to Prepare for Your PRP Treatment

  • No other facial treatments for one week prior to your appointment
  • Do not have your treatment if you have active acne, an infection, or any wound in the area
  • No anti-inflammatory medications for 3-4 days prior to your appointment
  • No blood-thinning meds, supplements, or vitamins for 1-2 weeks prior to your appointment
  • No systemic steroids for 1-2 weeks prior to your appointment
  • Before your appointment, eat a big, healthy breakfast and stay hydrated

What to Expect During Treatment

Before treatment, we will cleanse, prep, and numb your skin. Blood will be taken from your arm (1-2 ounces), and it will then be placed inside of a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. Once the plasma has been separated and purified, it will be put into a syringe so that it can be injected into the skin around the eyes.  

Downtime and Results

Patients who undergo PRP for eyes may have some swelling in the area for 1-2 days and perhaps some bruising, but these are common and temporary side effects. You will be able to resume your regular day after treatment, but may not work out the same day treatment.

Results from PRP for eyes are gradual. The platelet-rich plasma is absorbed by the body within 2-3 days, and the new collagen will take weeks to begin becoming noticeable. These results will continue to look better and better over the following 2-3 months. We recommend 2-3 treatments spaced 2-3 months apart for the best results.
