Ask Dr. Kat a Question:


PRP is your own blood, sent into a centrifuge in order to increase the amount of platelets it has, which can heal or renew tissue very quickly in this state. The treated area heals quickly and effectively.

The blood sample contains red and white blood based cells, and platelets which are known to release some growth factors. The growth factors help to heal and stimulate collagen production when injected into the face and this provides an effect of anti-aging.

Treatment is natural, derived from the body, and is safe to rejuvenate the body’s many joints, for regrowing hair, helping urinary incontinence for women, erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease for men. PRP is an excellent anti aging treatment in place of extensive and expensive procedures like plastic surgery.


PRP leaves no scars and creates a natural looking effect. We can easily treat fine lines, and wrinkles such as crows feet and eliminate bags under the eyes using this technique. PRP is also excellent for treating dark circles because it promotes blood flow through the region. Discoloration and puffiness partially disappear with as little as only one treatment. Results are not necessarily permanent but they give patients a long term option especially compared to other treatments offered by medical spas in the US.

This process is practically painless, and creates results in a very short period of time. PRP can create a more general effect also, making the treated area look more young and healthy. It is also easy as only a small amount of blood needs to be removed and then reinjected into the body.


We draw the blood, send it through a centrifuge for a few minutes and then reinject it into the area that needs to be treated, using natural growth factors in the blood to treat the area, and with a micro needle procedure which means using a very fine needle in order to minimize any pain.

This treatment is combined sometimes with other rejuvenation procedures like microneedling or laser resurfacing to give even better results for wrinkles, fine lines, or acne scarring.

PRP is injected by providers that have had training, and the procedure is only about 30 minutes in total which means you will not be in the treatment seat for very long.


You can expect to have perfect looking results. PRP is effective in rejuvenating desired areas and you may sometimes choose to do multiple sessions until you reach your desired results.

PRP for under eyes treats dark circles, wrinkles around the eyes, and puffiness. A doctor’s consultation will be made to decide the skin health of the patient and the goals they set for desired results.

It is also important to know that PRP injections do not give the same result as a brow lift or eyelift surgical procedure.


PRP lasts longer than other injectable methods however, you must understand that it is not permanent. For most patients PRP will improve the appearance of under eyes for one to two years on average. Results are noticeable after the first treatment however, we encourage three treatments in total, spread four weeks apart, and then possible maintenance injections every six months.


Most PRP treatments have very little downtime and you may return to work in a couple of days and return to exercise and such in a couple of weeks or so. We usually strongly recommend you to stay out of the sun and not put pressure on the area right after the procedure. There are also minimal side effects and there is very little pain in this procedure.

Patients will be told about how the PRP injection process works and we can answer any of your questions. PRP injections use plasma from your own blood so it is natural, non toxic and risk free of allergic reactions. Patients can expect efficacy and safety in treatment.

After treatment we recommend not touching the site for 24 hours and taking aspirin for pain, and to avoid massage, exfoliation, and alcohol for 72 hours. We also recommend icing the area and sleeping with your head elevated to reduce any swelling. Following the aftercare instructions will reduce the risk of possible complications by a large amount.


Anyone, as long as you have some blood to use, and you have no diseases in the area that would make treatment difficult such as people with active acne, lupus, rosacea, or any other autoimmune system diseases.

PRP is also not appropriate for people with a history of a bleeding disorder, or someone that uses blood thinning medication as PRP uses blood to achieve its results.

PRP is considered effective for stimulating production of collagen however, it is also very effective at addressing issues in the under eyes. This also includes healing abilities of PRP in other places of the body such as joints and skin tissue.
