It’s all about the eyes!

Far and away the most common concern clients have as they get older is the wrinkles and crepiness under the eyes. The skin here is extremely delicate and thins rapidly as we age.

This is a tough area to treat. Lasers can’t be used within the orbital rim for obvious reasons limiting our treatment options. So what can be done to slow the aging process in this vulnerable area?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) provides the perfect solution.

Sometimes referred to in the media as the ‘Vampire Treatment,’ PRP is often mistakenly touted as an alternative to injectables or fillers.  It is not. PRP is a procedure where blood is taken from the client, spun in a centrifuge for 5 mins to separate the plasma from other blood products and then that plasma is re injected into specific area, in this case under the eyes.

Why does this work so well? The plasma is rich in growth factors which stimulates stem cells. It accelerates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. This treatment is safe because you are putting you back into you, so to speak.

PRP is not new. It has been used in the hospital system for wound healing since the 1970’s. Its use in rejuvenation has meant we really do have an effective, safe and painless treatment to hold back the aging process by thickening the delicate skin under the eyes. I am a huge fan!
