The skin under our eyes is one of the thinnest and most delicate areas on our faces. Due to a variety of factors such as genetics, aging, and lack of sleep, this area can easily become puffy, dark, and wrinkled. Fortunately, there is a solution to improve the appearance of your under-eye area – microneedling PRP treatment. This innovative treatment is becoming increasingly popular amongst skincare enthusiasts and has shown promising results in revitalizing the under-eye area. Read on to find out more about microneedling PRP treatment for under eyes.
Firstly, what exactly is microneedling PRP treatment?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that involves using a device with tiny needles to create micro-injuries on the skin's surface. This process stimulates the body's natural healing response and promotes the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for healthy and youthful-looking skin. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a concentrated serum derived from the patient's blood that is rich in growth factors and other healing properties. By applying this serum to the skin before or after microneedling, the treatment can be enhanced for even better results.
When it comes to under eyes specifically, microneedling PRP treatment can address a variety of concerns. The micro-injuries created by the needles trigger the body's natural response to produce more collagen and elastin, which can help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, the application of PRP can help reduce puffiness and dark circles by increasing blood flow to the area and encouraging lymphatic drainage. Over time, patients may see a noticeable improvement in the overall tone and texture of their under-eye area.
Another benefit of microneedling PRP treatment is that it is a non-surgical and non-invasive alternative to procedures such as eyelid surgery or fillers. While these options can be effective, they also come with potential risks and side effects. Microneedling PRP treatment, on the other hand, carries minimal risk and does not require any downtime. Patients may experience some mild swelling or redness immediately after the session, but this should subside within a few days.
It is worth noting that microneedling PRP treatment is not a one-time fix. Patients typically require several sessions spaced out over a few weeks to achieve optimal results. The number of treatments needed will depend on the individual's skin concerns and goals. However, many patients are happy with the results they see and find that the treatment is worth the investment.
Who are the best candidates for the treatment?
Firstly, the ideal candidates for the microneedling PRP treatment are individuals who have mild to moderate skin imperfections around the under-eye area but want to achieve a natural improvement without undergoing surgery. The procedure is suitable for individuals with all skin types, both men and women.
It should be noted that this treatment is not recommended for individuals who have open wounds, eczema, psoriasis, active acne, or any skin infections around the treatment area. Those who are currently on blood thinners or have any clotting disorders should also avoid this treatment.
Furthermore, for individuals who are concerned with the safety of the procedure, this treatment is minimally invasive and has fewer risks of complications and downtime compared to surgical procedures such as Blepharoplasty. It is also a relatively safe procedure when performed by a licensed and experienced practitioner.
