How To Get Rid Of Dark Circles: Under Eye Rejuvenation With PRP 

Dark circles under the eyes are a persistent issue for many men and women of all ages and can become an increased problem as you grow older. No matter how much sleep you get, and how much time and resources you spend on cosmetic treatments and over-the-counter remedies, some people are simply more prone to dark circles than others.

Tear trough filler is the gold standard treatment for this issue.

However, one natural and effective treatment option that has been garnering attention in the medical cosmetic sector over the past few years is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP has a variety of potential applications, from hair loss to scar treatment, and has also proved effective in helping people to improve the appearance of dark circles under their eyes.

What causes dark circles under the eyes?

Dark circles under the eyes appear for numerous reasons. In popular understanding, dark circles are normally the result of inadequate sleep, stress, and dietary factors – such as drinking too much coffee – and these can all certainly contribute to the formation of dark circles. However, some people also develop dark circles under the eyes through genetic factors, such as facial shape and skin tone. When combined, this cocktail of factors can lead to weakened blood vessels around the eyes and a reduction in collagen production, making the skin thinner, fragile, and more strongly pigmented.

PRP: the natural solution to dark under eye circles

PRP is a non-surgical intervention that uses your own blood to rejuvenate the under-eye area, significantly reducing the appearance of dark circles or even eliminating them altogether. The key advantage of PRP is that it is a safe, natural, and minimally invasive treatment that utilises your own blood plasma and proteins to stimulate natural healing and rejuvenation around your eyes.

Here’s what to expect if you choose to undergo PRP treatment for dark eye circles:

Lifestyle and wellness consultation: During an initial in-depth medical consultation, our nurse specialist will assess your skin condition, discuss your treatment objectives, and help you decide if PRP treatment is the best course of action for your dark circles. PRP works best when used in tandem with other nonclinical lifestyle measures to reduce the appearance of dark circles, including:

  • Getting sufficient sleep
  • Staying hydrated
  • Using a gentle moisturising under eye cream enriched with medical ingredients such as ZO Eye Growth Factor or ZO Eye Brightening Cream.
  • Using an SPF moisturiser, suncream, and sunglasses to safeguard the delicate under-eye area from UV damage
  • Moderating consumption of alcohol, coffee, and salty foods
  • Stopping smoking

How PRP works: Platelet rich plasma treatment involves extracting a small volume of your own blood and placing it in a centrifuge to separate the platelet and protein-rich plasma from other components. Blood plasma is the yellow fluid component of the blood that makes up around 55% of your blood by volume and is the substrate in which red and white blood cells, platelets, hormones, electrolytes, nutrients, and various proteins are suspended. These beneficial proteins include albumin, fibrinogen, and globulin, among others, which have various functions in the body, including maintaining osmotic balance, facilitating blood clotting and healing, and supporting the immune system.

The centrifugal process separates and concentrates these beneficial proteins and makes them available as a solution or serum for therapeutic purposes. The resulting PRP solution is then reinjected into the target areas under your eyes to stimulate the production of collagen and the healing of your blood vessels, thereby reducing inflammation of the skin and reducing the appearance of dark circles.

When should I expect to see results?

Many patients see an observable reduction in the appearance of dark circles within a few weeks of treatment, with the newly formed collagen and blood vessel strengthening the under-eye area’s delicate skin structures. One of our experienced healthcare professionals will provide you with a personal post-treatment wellness plan to follow to maximise the benefits of your treatment, and multiple PRP sessions may be recommended for optimal results.
