What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is an autologous concentrated preparation of platelets and the associated growth factors in a small volume of plasma. Platelets are a natural source of a number of growth factors in their natural and biologically-determined ratios.
How does PRP affect the under eye area?
- Smooths fine lines, wrinkles, and folds⠀
- Reduces hollowness and thinning of the skin under the eyes⠀
- Angiogenesis- increasing circulation and brings in more oxygen leading to brighter under eyes! ⠀
What do Platelets do?
Platelets release growth factors which regulate the healing cascade by signaling to surrounding cells to repair damaged tissue and regenerate new tissue. Key growth factors involved in this process include but are not limited to:
- Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)
- Transforming Growth Factor group (TGF)
- Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)
- Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)
- Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF)
- Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF)
These growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply.
What is the process like?
This quick injection involves using your body’s own platelets in a very easy three-step process:
Step 1 – A special collection tube is used to draw your blood and is placed into a centrifuge.
Step 2 – The concentrated platelets are drawn up into a syringe.
Step 3 – Using a cannula, the platelets are then injected strategically into your tear troughs in the areas that need improvement.
Which system do you use?
At CJ Laser, we use the Eclipse PRP High Concentration system which is the most superior, patented technology in aesthetic medicine. The Eclipse PRP System allows you to simply remove red cells, white cells and platelet poor plasma (PPP) without removing a high percentage of platelets. With higher concentrations we can deliver a higher number of total platelets in fewer, smaller volume injections.
How long does the treatment take?
The entire process is approximately 45-60 minutes.
