PRP Facial Injection & Under Eye Treatment
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has become a popular cosmetic injectable treatment because of its ability to help repair the tissues and signs of aging by utilizing the body’s own platelet rich blood cells.
The natural aging of the skin is caused from imbalance between the rate of destruction and renewal of cells and collagen. The benefits of PRP includes improvements in the volume, texture, and tone of the facial skin and decreased appearances of wrinkles, reduce fine lines and scarring stimulating collagen and skin cell production.
PRP can be effective at rejuvenating:
The face and cheeks
Skin around the eyes
|How does it work?
Topical anesthetic is applied to the are to be treated. The clinician will draw a small sample of the patient’s blood, which is spun in a centrifuge for approximately five minutes. The centrifuge separates the plasma (the liquid portion of the whole blood) from blood particles. The platelets, also called thrombocytes, are blood cells that cause blood clots and other necessary growth healing functions. Platelet activation plays a key role in the body’s natural healing process.
The platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then reinjected back into the treatment area to stimulate collagen and elastin production aiding in skin cell production.
|What to expect after the treatment?
Immediately after the treatment you may experience some redness or swelling around the injection sites and potentially some mild to moderate bruising, which should subside over the following days.

|Dark Circles Under the Eyes
Dark circles around and under the eyes is a common problem. The eye area is a fragile region which may appear bluish coloration due to microcirculation disorders, sometimes associated with a darker area under the lower eyelid. The PRP treats the pigmentation by improving collagen production and blood supply in areas where it is lacking, therefore helps to lighten the skin surface like dark circles around the eyes. As skin quality improves with the PRP treatment, the thinner eyelid skin becomes healthier and thicker.
PRP Hair Growth Regeneration
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is also applicable in treating hair loss showing efficacy increasing hair count, hair thickness, and the growth phase of the hair cycle. The plasma contains white blood cells and platelets, which are rich in growth factors and aid in stimulating the activity of the hair follicles and promote new hair growth.
The process is the same as PRP Treatments applied to the face beginning with a standard blood draw from the patients arm. Next, the blood is spun in a centrifuge machine, which separates the red blood cells from the plasma. The plasma is rich in platelets, which are then injected directly into the scalp at the level of the hair follicles. The injections are very shallow and discomfort is usually minimal.
iPRF Facial Injection
Injectable Platelet Rich Fibrin (iPRF) is an all-natural, non-surgical regenerative treatment that utilises the patient’s own blood platelets in order to treat fine lines and wrinkles, volume loss, photo damage, scars, pigmentation, poor texture and hair restoration.
Similar to the PRP treatment the patients’ blood is drawn and then spun in a centrifuge at low speed to obtain the Platelet Rich Fibrin. The slow spin preserves platelet integrity, which provides better results.
Mesotherapy, also known as ‘micro-needling’ is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure comprising of meticulous microinjections into the middle layer (mesoderm) of the skin using; vitamins, enzymes, hormones and plant extracts to rejuvenate the skin, as well as remove excess fat.
Mesotherapy can be used to:
- Remove fat in areas like the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips, legs, arms, and face
- Reduce cellulite
- Fade wrinkles and lines
- Tighten loose skin
- Recontour the body
- Lighten pigmented skin
- Treat alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss
