Dark circles under the eyes and eye bags have many causes beyond lack of sleep. While not getting enough sleep can contribute to the look of the tear trough area, it is not usually the underlying cause in people with naturally dark or sunken eyes.
Most of the time, genetics play the largest role in the appearance or development of under eyes circles. Some people are genetically predisposed to periorbital hyperpigmentation and a healthy amount of sleep will cause this to go away. Additionally, certain conditions like sinus issues, allergies, and insomnia can all cause or worsen the condition.
For those wanting to find a solution to looking perpetually tired, PRP In Seattle offers an injectable treatment known as PRP for tear troughs. PRP, or platelet rich plasma, comes from a patient’s body and is simply isolated before being injected under the eyes. This alternative to dermal fillers stimulates collagen production in the area. Consequently, this can lead to longer lasting results than fillers that must be refreshed to upkeep results.
The procedure is performed by Seattle plastic surgeons or physician trained injectors. The injectors at PRP In Seattle have trained with platelet rich plasma and know the best practices to promote a good result.
Most patients require between three and six rounds of injections to see the results they desire. To schedule a consultation at PRP In Seattle, call us at 206-279-2112 or contact us online.
