Platelet rich plasma or simply PRP therapy leverages on the growth factors found in the blood to induce and accelerate the healing process in your body. PRP is widely used in various medical fields, with the anti-aging field recently jumping aboard. PRP therapy has proven to be an effective way to help reverse the physical signs of aging, for instance, facial wrinkles, loose, saggy skin and eye bags.
The growth factors found in blood platelets help to jumpstart the production of collagen and generates new capillaries while activating and rejuvenating the body’s cells and skin. This helps to reverse the aforementioned signs of aging, effectively, turning back the hands of time, at least physically.
PRP, for the purpose of anti-aging, is relatively new. However, it has shown real promise and proven to be effective for some people. The therapy is appealing to dermatologists and many are utilizing the treatment in increasing numbers because it is less invasive then other forms of care. It is also natural, using the body’s own components, which makes it safe for everyone. Many dermatological procedures are safe only for some patients. PRP is safe for all patients.
Traditional treatments for eye bags include surgery, fat removal and laser treatments. Each of these has its advantages and can be effective ways to treat eye bags. However, these procedures tend to be more invasive, especially surgery and pretty costly. The outcomes of the aforementioned procedures are also difficult to anticipate. Some people’s results are excellent while others leave a lot to be desired.
PRP therapy is a rather simple procedure. The doctor administering the procedure will draw about 10ccs of blood from the patient. This blood is placed in a centrifuge machine. The machine will spin the blood, separating the components in the process. The platelets are collected and injected into a person’s eye bags. The process is painless. Many people report feeling very little. The entire process should take between 20 and 40 minutes.
After the PRP procedure is completed, an individual might experience some puffiness or swelling for a few hours. The site of the injection may be tender but not painful. Individuals that do experience pain will be directed to take an over-the-counter pain reliever such as Tylenol or prescribed a very mild one. All discomfort should dissipate within 24 to 48 hours.
The results of the procedure should get better with time. As new blood capillaries are formed and collagen is regenerated, the patient should begin to see results within a few weeks. Individuals should refrain from massaging and rubbing their eyes for at least 48 hours after the procedure has been performed. Facials are out of the question, as are laser treatments and heat diffusing for a period of four weeks.
