Minimise Dark Circles and Under Eye Bags With PRP Therapy

only afterglow

Lack of sleep is one cause of dark under eye circles and bags. However, if you’re getting plenty of rest and still notice these concerns, skin laxity may be the real culprit. As we age, our skin’s natural elasticity weakens, and the tear trough area can darken and appear sunken, baggy, or puffy. As a result, you may look tired even if you feel alert. Dr. Shehla Ebrahim, our skilled physician, offers non-surgical treatment that may be able to help. PRP therapy, an advanced minimally invasive rejuvenation technique, can help to refresh the tear trough zone with beautiful results.

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is a highly rejuvenating substance derived from your own blood. We collect a small volume and minimally process it, removing the red blood cells and concentrating the platelets and plasma. This compound can then be administered into the tear trough area to achieve several benefits, including:

  • Reduction of puffiness and dark circles
  • Added volume to under eye depressions
  • Enhanced skin tone, texture, and luminosity

Additionally, PRP therapy offers long-lasting results. Most patients enjoy the effect for about a year and a half. If you love the difference this treatment makes, you can extend the benefits with occasional touch-up sessions.

Rejuvenate your appearance using your own natural tissue. PRP therapy from our practice can help you appear more rested, youthful, and beautiful without foreign substances or surgical intervention. Contact us today for more information or to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Ebrahim.
