The under eye area–also known as the tear troughs–are a frequent problem area for people of all ages.

Genetics, aging, certain medical conditions, and other factors can lead to a darkened or sunken appearance under the eyes. To alleviate this, patients seek out tear trough filler to fill out the area and provide a more awake and refreshed look. Many dermal filler options exist, but there is currently no dermal filler safe to use under the eyes that stimulates collagen. PRP is a natural substitute to dermal fillers that help produce collagen in the tear troughs. PRP In Seattle is delighted to offer platelet rich plasma injections for tear troughs to Seattle, Kirkland, Bellevue, and surrounding areas.

    WHAT IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)?

    Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP is a component of blood that aids the healing process of wounds. In any PRP treatment, plasma is drawn from your blood and spun in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP from the red blood cells and poor platelet plasma. Since PRP is plasma that is 5 to 10 times more platelet rich and contains more growth factors than normal blood, these platelets activate your body’s healing response and induce the growth of red blood cells and collagen to the injected area. Additionally, these proteins and growth factors send messages that alert your body to send white blood cells to the injection site.

    How It Benefits The Tear Troughs

    When PRP is injected into the tear troughs  the body naturally regenerates the skin under the eyes and helps to get rid of unwanted dark circles and hollowness. PRP is often used by athletes to help stimulate healing of injuries. Therefore, this powerful technology can translate to use for cosmetic purposes, such as filling in the tear troughs

    PRP is different from traditional hyaluronic acid fillers because it comes from your body and stimulates your body’s natural healing response. Therefore, it increases collagen and blood supply to the tear trough area contributing to a more youthful appearance.

    PRP is one of the newest procedures in regenerative medicine and the surgeons used for hair restoration, skin care, and injections. At PRP In Seattle, we are always working to enhance and improve our cosmetic and plastic surgeries and procedures.
