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.

How Do I Prepare For PRP Under Eye Injections?

Injections of platelet rich plasma under the eyes are an alternative to traditional dermal fillers. While they both involve under eye injections, PRP must first be extracted from the patient’s blood sample and spun in a centrifuge. Beyond this, PRP comes with fewer risks than dermal fillers and can contribute to longer lasting results. Patients who opt for this often ask, “How do I prepare for PRP under eye injections?”

First, like with dermal fillers, it is best to avoid medications and supplements that can thin the blood. This includes over-the-counter pain killers that contain ibuprofen or Aspirin. Others may include turmeric and white willow supplements. While not absolutely necessary, avoiding these medications and supplements for a few days before and after your injections can help reduce and prevent bruising.

Next, on the day of your procedure, make sure to eat well and drink plenty of water. This can prevent adverse reactions to a blood draw and injections in general. This often will keep you feeling at your best during and after the appointment.

Finally, make preparations ahead of time. Plan not to work out the day of the procedure and limit alcohol intake as well. Pre-planning helps ensure the best outcomes and the fewest and least severe side effects. To learn more, you can contact us online via chat or contact for or call us at 206-279-2112.
