Besides being a really fun alliteration, a tear trough treatment is a way to tackle that hollow space that forms under the eyes as we age. Some people may refer to it as bags under the eyes, because the skin begins to sag and droop.
Dermal fillers are a fantastic way to combat tear trough and under eye bags because they restore lost volume in the area. However, for some, other methods have proven to be even more effective!
Our tear trough treatment without fillers
One treatment that is quickly becoming a fan-favorite way to treat bags under the eyes, as well as other signs of aging, is called PRP.
Platelet rich plasma is found within your blood. We take a small sample, and spin it in a centrifuge, which separates the blood from the plasma. We can then use this “liquid gold” for many regenerative purposes, such as:
- Restore hair loss
- Restore lost volume in the under eyes, cheeks, hands, and more
- Complete under eye rejuvenation
- Treat fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, hands, and chest
- And more!
How does it work?
The process of utilizing PRP is pretty similar to dermal fillers. We strategically inject the substance into the treatment area to induce collagen production and skin rejuvenation. We can also utilize PRP during a microneedling treatment.
Benefits of PRP as a tear trough treatment
We take PRP from your own body, which means it is completely natural and safe for us to use. PRP has been shown to be incredibly effective at producing new collagen growth on a cellular level, which means this treatment is becoming an even more popular alternative to surgery.
Eyelid surgery, otherwise known as blepharoplasty, is also a great option for eye rejuvenation. But with PRP, you don’t have to undergo a blepharoplasty recovery time. In fact, there’s absolutely no downtime associated with this treatment!
