Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injection

The natural healing components of PRP injections help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, increase your skin's hydration, improve pigmentation, and more!

What are the benefits of PRP under eye injections?

PRP undereye injections, boost the production of collagen and elastin. They encourage blood circulation to the area of treatment. Gradually and naturally, volume loss that's caused by the natural course of aging is reversed. Specifically, the under-eye area is restored, resulting in a brighter, smoother, more youthful appearance.

PRP can be used for rejuvenation in the following areas, at the discretion of your provider:

  • under eyes/tear troughs
  • nasolabial folds
  • mid/lower face
  • applied topically with microneedling treatment (COMING SOON!!) 


How does PRP work?

Platelet Rich Plasma is found within our blood. It contains a high concentration of growth factors that have been used for over 20 years for cellular rejuvenation, healing, and collagen production. A blood draw is performed from the arm region and spun in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP. The PRP separates into a yellow substance that is filled with growth factors. PRP is drawn off, injected, or used topically to aid in collagen production and rejuvenation in that given area. Some clients are looking for natural solutions to combat signs of aging, as opposed to toxins and dermal fillers. PRP injections are the most natural way of stimulating your body's collagen, using your own growth factors,  with the least risk of side effects. 


Treatment Expectations:

  • Before PRP injections, drink plenty of water! This will aid us in drawing blood and obtaining more plasma.
  • The best results are achieved if PRP is injected in a series of 3 treatments (1 treatment every 4-6 weeks), with noticeable results occurring once the series is complete over the course of the next 3-6 months.
  • After PRP injections, the client should plan for 2 weeks of healing due to possible bruising and swelling.
  • After PRP is applied topically, the client should plan for 1-2 days of healing due to redness and/or irritation.
  • PRP results may vary from client to client.

  • What are the benefits of PRP for treating the under-eye area?

    PRP injections in the under-eye area are an excellent treatment for addressing fine lines and wrinkles in this region for optimum rejuvenation. PRP contains growth factors that stimulate collagen production when injected into the skin. By stimulating new collagen production, platelet-rich plasma helps tighten loose skin around the eyes to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles like crow’s feet, while also eliminating bags underneath the eyes.

    PRP under eye treatment is also an excellent way to treat dark circles as they increase blood flow through this region. Puffiness and discoloration around the eyes are less visible.

  • How is the treatment performed?

    1. First, patients will undergo a blood draw.
    2. The blood draw allows the provider to then extract the platelet-rich plasma from the patient’s own blood using a centrifuge, as seen below.
    3. Once enough PRP has been harvested, it is then reinjected where it is needed.

    For PRP treatments in the under-eye area, platelet-rich plasma is injected into the skin. This injection treatment can be combined with other stimulating rejuvenation procedures like microneedling to give superior results for treating fine lines, wrinkles, and even acne scarring. PRP injections should only be performed by providers who have received training for this service to reduce the risk of complications caused by incorrect administration.

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

    PRP injections in the under-eye area are typically used to treat wrinkles around the eyes, dark circles, and puffiness. During an initial consultation appointment, the treatment provider will determine the patient’s skin health and unique goals to determine if they will see the desired results. It is important that patients understand that platelet-rich plasma injections are not designed to give the same results as surgical procedures.

  • How long does PRP under-eye last?

    Though PRP under-eye treatments last longer than other injectable methods on the market today. For many patients, PRP injections will improve one’s under-eye appearance for anywhere between one to two years, depending on the patient’s current skin condition (and severity of concerns) and one’s age.

    With platelet-rich plasma injections for under-eye treatment, patients will notice subtle results after just the first treatment. However, to achieve maximum results we encourage patients to consider three treatments spread approximately four weeks apart and then perform maintenance injections every six months.

  • Are PRP injections painful?

    Some patients may experience a mild tingling sensation after the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the skin, but it resolves on its own quickly and does not cause much discomfort for most.

  • Are PRP injections safe?

    Because platelet-rich plasma injections use the patient’s own plasma from their blood, it is non-toxic, natural, and has no risk of allergic reactions. When properly performed by a trained and experienced professional, patients can expect safety and efficacy from their treatments.

  • Who is a good candidate for PRP under-eye treatment?

    PRP injections are best suited for patients who have signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, or puffiness under the eyes.

  • Why PRP is preferred over filler for the under-eye area?

    You know that dermal fillers are an excellent option for replacing lost volume in the face, so it seems like fillers would be the obvious first choice to correct under-eye issues, especially that “hollowed eye” look that can appear as we age. While some providers do use fillers under the eyes, here at Revive we prefer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to treat this most delicate part of the face because fillers can cause unintended consequences that produce undesirable results. There is no risk of allergic or other adverse reactions. The procedure is simple and doesn’t take much time. We take a small sample of your blood, then spin it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets – proteins that contain the growth factors essential for healing. We refine that concentrated platelet serum and carefully inject it in precisely the right spots to achieve your desired results.

    The results are all-natural, too! Platelet-rich plasma stimulates your body’s own production of localized blood vessels and new skin cells with healthier collagen structure. It can take a little longer to see your new look, as producing new collagen and cells takes time, so while you will see improvement, fully visible results may occur after a series of treatments.

    Because the eye area is so fragile, choosing the right provider is even more critical. You never have to worry about skill or other qualifications when you choose Revive. Even better, if you are unhappy with under-eye filler injected elsewhere, our expert injectors can reverse the effects with a safe product that dissolves hyaluronic-based material. Then, we can help you choose a better way to rejuvenate the appearance of your eyes using PRP.

My first trip to Revive was today and it was everything I had hoped it to be. I had a 90-minute massage. It was absolutely amazing and I am definitely rebooking another with her. So much relief with TMJ and muscle tension. After the massage, I had my skin consultation with Kisha and continued to be amazed by the level of professionalism and knowledge, as well as the friendly and genuine service. I have booked again next week for my first Dysport session. All my friends and coworkers have asked for the outcome of my spa visit and it's definitely a 2 THUMBS UP! Thank you for a great experience from the check-in staff all the way to the end of my sessions. The facility is beautiful as well!

Kisha was so informative, knowledgeable, and sweet!

I have tried a few places since moving to the Quad Cities from Chicago and finally found this gem. They did an awesome job with my Dysport injections and really listened to what I was asking them to do. They far surpassed my expectations and the place is clean as a freaking whistle! My mother was in town visiting from Atlanta and they did hers as well. She was also beyond pleased with the results and facility overall. Highly recommended, and I'll definitely be back for more soon. Thank you, Revive!
