Do you have dark under-eye circles, hollowing, puffiness, or fine lines, and wrinkles under the eye? Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is an effective treatment for the under-eye area as it increases collagen firming the skin and giving the eyes a refreshed and youthful appearance.
PRF from the blood contains stem cells and growth factors, and when injected under the eyes, it stimulates activity to increase blood flow and grow new blood vessels, bringing nutrients and oxygen to the skin. The result is under-eye rejuvenation, improving dark circles, hollowing, and under-eye puffiness.
PRF is recommended for under eye treatment if you have:
At Refine Anti-Aging and Aesthetics, we strive to deliver the best under eye treatment Oakland has to offer. We first draw a small amount of blood from a vein in your arm. This blood is then processed in a centrifuge with a special double spin method to get a high concentration of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). We further process PRP to become PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) which slowly releases growth factors gradually and slowly.
The PRF is injected into the skin under the eyes, much like we would do under-eye filler. But in this case, it is an all-natural product derived from your own blood! The treatment generally takes between 30 to 45 minutes to complete.
For best results, we recommend that our Oakland under eye treatment patients undergo as many as three treatments, with at least a month of healing time between each session. Maintenance treatment is recommended every year with a single session.
Results can be seen in as little as a few days, but it is important to note that it can take time to see complete results because more than one session is required, and PRF works overtime. Most people will continue to see further benefits even 6-12 months after their first injection, with results lasting up to 2 years, depending on the patient’s skin condition and age.
The procedure has no associated downtime, though you may have some mild swelling or bruising after the injections, which will resolve in a few days. Because platelet-rich fibrin injections use the patient’s own plasma from their blood, it is non-toxic, natural, and has no risk of allergic reactions.
