PRP injections in Atlanta

Platelet-rich PRP plasma therapy, sometimes called PRP therapy or autologous conditioned plasma (ACP) therapy, relieves pain by promoting long lasting healing of musculoskeletal conditions using the healing power of your own body. PRP is injected into the affected joint. The goal is to reduce pain, improve joint function, possibly slow, halt or even repair damage to the cartilage.

Plasma refers to the liquid component of the blood; it is the medium for red and white blood cells and other material traveling in the bloodstream. Plasma is mostly water but also includes, nutrients, glucose, and antibodies, among other components.

Frequently Asked Questions about PRP Under Eye Treatments

What is PRP?

PRP is an acronym for Platelet-Rich Plasma. PRP is used in facial rejuvenation treatments to help improve overall skin texture. PRP also decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

How does PRP work on under-eye areas?

PRP contains growth factors that stimulate collagen production. Under-eye PRP treatments are excellent for addressing fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles, and puffiness. Improvement in treated areas is visible within minutes of application. These treatments provide patients with a natural option for under-eye issues.

How is the treatment performed?

The first step is collecting the blood. One tube of blood is drawn from the patient and then spun in a centrifuge where the blood is separated into layers. The plasma is then extracted and re-injected back into the under-eye area being treated.

What results can be expected with a PRP under-eye treatment?

An initial assessment will determine the health of the skin and everyone’s goals to determine if the treatment is appropriate for the problem. PRP under-eye treats fine wrinkles, dark circles, and puffiness around the eye area. It is important that the patient understands that PRP injections are a natural way of treatment and are not designed to give the same results as surgical procedures such as blepharoplasty.

How long does PRP under the eyes last?

PRP under-eye treatments last longer than fillers but results are not permanent.
For many patients, the lasting results are from 1-2 years, depending on the patient’s current age and skin condition.

Patients are encouraged to do 3 initial treatments 4 weeks apart, then maintenance 8-12 months as needed.

Is there any downtime or side effects associated with PRP under-eye treatments?

No downtime is needed, and minimal side effects or complications occur. Some patients verbalize experiencing tingling sensations as the plasma starts to work but does not cause much discomfort for most. Normal activities can be resumed the following day, along with aftercare instructions.

  • Avoid taking Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Advil, Naproxen or Aleve following the procedure. Tylenol is recommended.
  • Avoid alcohol, exfoliation, and massaging the area for 72hrs.
  • Sleeping with the head of the bed elevated is recommended to reduce swelling.

Who can have PRP rejuvenation?

While PRP is considered safe for most people, it’s not recommended for anyone who has one of the following medical conditions:

  • Hepatitis C
  • HIV or AIDS
  • Any type of blood cancer or blood disorder
  • Cardiovascular disease, which requires taking a blood thinner
  • Skin cancer in the area to be treated, active rosacea
