– Plasma for Dark Circles Under Eyes
Discoloration under the eyes are usually a result of two things. First one being hyperpigmentation that is caused by the damage lead by excessive exposure to sun or even genetics in some cases. If these are the causes of the discoloration under our eyes, microneedling with PRP can help.
The second cause of dark circles is the loss in volume. Microneedling with PRP cis capable of reversing this volume loss, in order to minimize the discoloration.
– PRP for Under Eye Bags / Puffy Eyes
If there’s bulging under the eye, volume loss can also be the culprit here. Specifically, the fatty pads under the skin become more prominent in relation to the sunken areas. Microneedling with PRP will correct this by evening out the skin.
– PRP for Hollow Eyes / Sunken Eyes
The under eye area can appear hollowed out, because of volume loss as we age. Microneedling with PRP has shown to be highly effective for restoring sunken eyes.
