PRF FOR UNDER EYES OVERVIEW
While fillers dominate the market and tear trough filler is a very popular procedure at our Ashburn, VA Mountcastle Medical Spa and Laser Center, the PRF treatment for under eyes is quickly growing in popularity due to its more natural basis.
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is extracted from your own blood during your visit at Mountcastle Medical Spa and Laser Center. The PRF is filled with high concentrations of fibrin, white blood cells, and stem cells. Studies have shown that PRF treatments stimulate collagen growth and new skin cells.
Patients seeking to resolve or minimize fine lines and wrinkles, thin, crepe-y skin, hollowness, or dark circles in the under eye region are ideal candidates for PRF. Since PRF utilizes your own stem cells and growth factors and results are gradual, patients note the results as looking very natural and long-lasting.

Filler provides a feeling of instant gratification, whereas PRF is a gradual process.
However, filler does not solve the issue of thin, crepe-y skin or dark circles.
Right after the treatment, patients will experience redness, swelling, and possible bruising to the injection area. These side effects should subside within the first week.
