How Long Do PRP Under Eye Injections Last?

By | PRP Injections

PRP injections are a popular treatment for both cosmetic concerns and long-term injuries. Many practices perform PRP under-eye injections to promote a decrease in under-eye wrinkles, puffiness, and shadows. By increasing collagen production and blood flow to the target area, PRP injections for the under eye can provide dramatic results for many patients. But how long do they last? 

The longevity of PRP injections depends on various factors that range from the patient’s metabolism and genetics to the intensity of the cosmetic challenges under the eyes, which can determine how long the results will remain. Typically, patients who require less significant treatment for their under eyes experience slightly longer than those with significant wrinkles or eye bags.

However, despite cosmetic issues, PRP injections for the under eye can last for nine months to two years. The expert providers at PRP in Seattle recommend scheduling a yearly maintenance session to keep up with the incredible results.

Filler vs. PRP For Tear Troughs

By | PRP Injections

The tear troughs are a famously tricky area to fill. Certain dermal fillers like Sculptra and Radiesse are not suitable for under the eyes. Traditionally, dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane provide volume to the area to correct the look of under eye bags, darkness, and hollowness. More recently, platelet rich plasma has begun to replace and enhance tear trough filler. Filler vs. PRP for tear troughs can be a difficult decision when trying to decide on the option best for you.

In the tear troughs, certain fillers can eventually look lumpy or migrate. While a risk with all fillers, the skin of the tear troughs can sometimes show it more than other filler areas. PRP can stimulate collagen to thicken and brighten the appearance of the skin, which can supplement dermal filler injections. 

PRP can also be injected on its own. It acts like a filler, except that it promotes collagen which can naturally volumize the area and lead to more permanent results. While it often takes multiple injections to see these results, once patients reach their desired results they no longer need regular injection appointments and may only require a few touch ups to maintain their results. Unlike dermal fillers that need refreshed every few months.

Since PRP comes from the patient’s blood, it does require more time and a blood draw to perform. This makes it a slightly more invasive procedure than fillers, but it can provide longer lasting results for the tear troughs.
