PRP injections–first used to treat soft tissue injuries–have become an up and coming filler option. Platelet rich plasma induces the production of collagen which can lead to a more natural look. The most common use of PRP injections as filler is as under eye filler. Prior to trying PRP for tear troughs, patients often wonder if it works. Here are reasons why PRP works for under eye filler.
When injected, PRP triggers the healing response in your body. This heightened healing response means that your body sends its defenses to rebuild skin and tissue in the area. However, because there is not a major injury, it works as filler to give the under eyes a boost. This can contribute to looking less tired and filling in eye bags.
Next, PRP comes from your own body. Therefore, the chances of rejection or a reaction to the filler is minute and nearly unheard of. For patients who have had reactions to dermal fillers or who want a wholly natural option, PRP is an option that uses your own bodily functions to provide under eye enhancement.
Finally, PRP has proven effective as a therapeutic treatment and in the treatment of hair thinning. To schedule a consultation, call us at 206-279-2112 or contact us online.
