Injecting platelet rich plasma under the eyes as an alternative to traditional dermal fillers is becoming increasingly popular. PRP does not come with many of the same risks as injecting fillers under the eyes. For example, there is almost no chance of an allergic reaction, occlusion, or overfilling. Though, considering the two treatments are administered the same way, how do the side effects compare? Let’s take a look at, “What are the side effects of PRP under eye injections?”
First off, not every patient will experience side effects. Additionally, the severity of the side effects will vary from person to person. Most who experience side effects will only experience minor ones that should resolve without major treatment. Examples of some of the possible side effects include swelling, redness, tenderness, pain near the injection sites, bruising, and soreness. These side effects are generally consistent with any other similar injection.
Side effects should only last between two days to two weeks. Typically, most will resolve within a week. Swelling and minor bruising may hang on for about two weeks. Though, after seven to ten days can usually be hidden underneath makeup. If you experience more severe side effects, your injector can guide you on how to alleviate them.
