How Long Do PRP Injections Under The Eyes Last?

When it comes to filler procedures, under eye filler is among one of the trickiest. It requires an experienced injector and can only utilize certain types of filler. The skin under the eyes is also thinner than the rest of the face, making this are more prone to the Tyndall effect. While tear trough filler is still a great option for filling in dark, sunken eyes, many patients and injectors alike are open to the idea of PRP for tear troughs. Since it is notably different from filler, patients often ask, “How long do PRP injections under the eyes last?”

Platelet rich plasma is a natural substance that is produced in blood. When injected, PRP promotes collagen production which can naturally fill in hollowed under eyes. Similar to filler, this takes multiple treatments. However, unlike filler, it will take time to see results. With filler, results are noticeable almost immediately, while with PRP it will take longer. 

With PRP injections, once you finish the initial treatments where you are happy with the results, you may need occasional injections to maintain the results. Otherwise, results should remain noticeable throughout the year. 

Results from PRP injections under the eyes can last for many years. Every patient will see them last a different amount of time. Additionally, some patients may need more rounds of injections to see the prolonged results they want.

Causes Of Under Eye Circles & PRP For Tear Troughs

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Injections

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.
