PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)

PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is a concentrated autologous preparation of platelets and growth factors in a small plasma volume. In their natural and biologically determined ratios, growth factors are naturally present in platelets. Platelet Rich Plasma has become widely recognized as an all-natural way to prevent aging without requiring extensive or expensive surgery.

The platelets are isolated from the blood and combined with plasma in a small volume. These platelets are a natural source of growth factors that are released when the platelets are activated, allowing them to help in the healing process. As a result of a high concentration of growth factors in PRP, inflammation can be reduced, tissue regeneration can be promoted, and circulation can be enhanced.

Microneedling with PRP Under Eyes

Microneedling and PRP are popular treatments under the eyes for dark circles, bags, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity. PRP is microneedled into the targeted areas by using a specially designed device fitted with tiny needles.

PRP is a natural alternative to fillers. Since PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood, it enhances microneedling benefits while virtually preventing side effects.

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Eye Rejuvenation

A PRP treatment for under-eyes is a non-surgical regenerative treatment that uses a patient’s own growth factors to rejuvenate the area. As part of this cosmetic procedure, fine lines, under-eye pigmentation, crow’s feet, volume loss, and more can be reduced.

PRP for Dark Circles

Dark circles can be effectively treated with PRP under the eyes. Patients may benefit from this treatment for 12+ months, depending on their age and skin type. Due to the PRP’s ability to create collagen and blood vessels, it will thicken the skin around the dark circles. As a result, the skin structure under the eyes becomes healthier.

The best results are often achieved by using a post-procedure under an eye mask for 30 minutes, which provides additional hydration and repair.


Most people will start to see improvements in the treated area within a few days to a few weeks. However, the full results of your PRP treatment may take several months to become visible.

As with many other microneedling treatments, patients may experience some discomfort. We often use a numbing cream to minimize the patient’s sensitivity to the procedure.

There is typically little to no downtime after a PRP treatment. Patients can experience redness, swelling, and some pain at the injection site.
