Plasma Under Eyes Rejuvenation

Medically Reviewed April 2023, by Dr. Ayad Harb, one of the world's leading plastic surgeons

What is Plasma for Under Eyes?

Plasma Rejuvenation for Under Eyes, popularly known as the 'Vampire Facial,' is a groundbreaking approach to skin rejuvenation that capitalises on the body's intrinsic healing mechanisms. This innovative treatment offers hope to those battling the early signs of ageing, particularly in the sensitive and often problematic under-eye region. The eyes, after all, are windows to the soul, and a fresh, vibrant under-eye area can significantly boost self-confidence and give a renewed sense of youth.

So, how does Plasma work its magic? The procedure starts with a gentle extraction of a small volume of the patient's own blood. This is not unlike a routine blood draw you might experience during a standard health check. The blood is then subjected to a specialised process in a centrifuge. This machine spins the blood at high speeds, separating its various components. The objective is to isolate and concentrate the platelets, which are tiny blood cells involved in clotting. But platelets do much more than just clotting; they are packed with growth factors and proteins essential for healing.

Once we have this concentrated platelet-rich plasma, it's ready for reintroduction into the skin. Using fine needles, the Plasma is meticulously injected into the target area beneath the eyes. This might sound daunting, but in the hands of skilled practitioners, it's a smooth and well-tolerated process. Moreover, to ensure maximum comfort, a numbing cream is typically applied to the area before the procedure.

But why the under eyes? The skin here is among the thinnest and most delicate on our entire body. It's also one of the first places where signs of ageing, stress, and fatigue become evident. Dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines aren't just cosmetic concerns; they can significantly impact how we feel about ourselves. The constant exposure to environmental aggressors, combined with genetic factors and the relentless march of time, means this area needs special care and attention.

Enter Plasma Rejuvenation. When introduced into the under-eye region, the growth factors in the plasma get to work. They stimulate the production of collagen, that vital protein responsible for our skin's firmness and elasticity. They also promote cell growth and accelerate tissue regeneration. The result? A noticeable reduction in dark circles, an improvement in skin texture and tone, and a revitalised appearance.

What sets Plasma Rejuvenation apart from many other aesthetic treatments is its holistic nature. While many cosmetic procedures introduce foreign substances or synthetic fillers into the body, Plasma Rejuvenation is wholly natural. After all, it's derived from the patient's own blood. This not only minimises the risks of allergic reactions or rejection but also ensures the treatment is in harmony with the body's natural processes. It's a rejuvenation technique that works not by masking or artificially altering the skin's appearance, but by boosting its inherent regenerative capabilities.

As the days and weeks post-treatment progress, patients often report an enhancement in their skin's overall health and vitality. While the immediate aftermath might involve some minor swelling or redness, these symptoms are transient and usually resolve quickly. What remains is a refreshed, youthful glow that can last for months. With subsequent Plasma Rejuvenation sessions, this effect can be maintained and even enhanced.

Plasma Rejuvenation for Under Eyes is more than just a cosmetic intervention. It's a testament to the marvels of modern aesthetic medicine and our body's remarkable ability to heal and rejuvenate. Whether you're combating the early signs of ageing, seeking to erase the traces of late nights, or simply wish to invest in your skin's health, Plasma Rejuvenation offers a promising, natural solution.

Benefits of the treatment

The benefits of the Plasma Rejuvenation treatment for under eyes are multifaceted and deeply rooted in the intersection of science, nature, and aesthetic appeal. This innovative procedure stands out as a beacon of hope for many grappling with the early signs of ageing, especially in the fragile under-eye region. The quest for youthful, vibrant eyes is not merely a cosmetic desire but also a journey towards renewed self-confidence and vitality.

One of the most compelling advantages of Plasma Rejuvenation is its organic approach to skin rejuvenation. In an age where synthetic fillers and artificial treatments flood the market, the treatment offers a breath of fresh air, tapping into the body's own natural reservoir of healing and rejuvenation. Since the plasma is extracted from the patient's blood, it remains in harmony with the individual's physiological makeup, drastically reducing the risks of allergic reactions or incompatibilities.

In tandem with its natural foundation, the Plasma Rejuvenation treatment is a champion of collagen stimulation. Collagen, a critical protein, acts as the bedrock of our skin's firmness and suppleness. As we age, collagen production declines, leading to the onset of wrinkles, sagging, and a loss of elasticity. Plasma Rejuvenation's introduction into the under-eye area acts as a catalyst, reviving and supercharging the skin's collagen production. Over time, this translates into a visible reduction in fine lines, ensuring the skin remains plump, firm, and radiantly youthful.

Moreover, dark circles, a common and often vexing concern, find a formidable adversary in Plasma Rejuvenation. These unsightly shadows, often a result of reduced blood flow or thinning skin, can make one appear perpetually fatigued. Plasma Rejuvenation, with its rich concentration of growth factors, enhances blood circulation and invigorates the skin, leading to a noticeable fading of these stubborn circles.

But beyond the immediate and tangible cosmetic benefits, Plasma Rejuvenation has a deeper, more profound impact. The treatment represents a proactive investment in one's skin health. As the growth factors in plasma work their magic, they don't just mask or superficially treat the issues. Instead, they enhance the skin's overall health, making it more resilient against environmental aggressors and the inevitable ageing process.

Plasma Rejuvenation for Under Eyes is not just about looking good; it's about feeling good from within. It's a celebration of the body's innate healing prowess, a commitment to natural beauty, and a step towards lasting skin health. Whether you're at the dawn of noticing age-related changes or are simply looking to preserve your skin's youthful charm, Plasma Rejuvenation emerges as a potent, trustworthy ally in your aesthetic journey.

Is The Treatment For Under Eyes Painful?

The idea of needles near our eyes can understandably induce a bit of apprehension. However, the procedure prioritises patient comfort. Before the treatment begins, a potent numbing cream is meticulously applied to the target area. This ensures that any sensation felt during the injections is significantly minimised. Most patients describe the sensation as a mild pinch or slight pressure, akin to a gentle touch. It's also worth noting that the practitioners performing the procedure are trained extensively. Their expertise, combined with the numbing agent, makes the entire experience relatively pain-free. Furthermore, any minor discomfort felt during the short procedure pales in comparison to the lasting benefits and rejuvenation achieved.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The effectiveness often sparks curiosity about the frequency of required sessions. While some individuals might notice remarkable improvements after a single session, optimal results typically arise from a series of treatments. Generally, we recommend 2-3 treatments spaced about a month apart. This schedule ensures that the skin receives consistent stimulation, thereby maximising collagen production and overall rejuvenation. However, individual needs can vary, and factors like skin type, age, and specific concerns might necessitate a personalised treatment plan.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Plasma, being derived from the patient's own blood, has a minimal risk profile, especially when compared to treatments involving foreign substances. Common side effects are typically mild and short-lived. These might include slight swelling, a bit of redness, or minor bruising at the injection site. Such effects usually resolve within a few days. It's essential to understand that these are natural responses of the body as it begins the healing and rejuvenation process. As always, ensuring you're treated by a reputable and experienced practitioner further reduces any potential risks.

How Soon Will I See Results?

The magic doesn't manifest overnight, but the wait is undeniably worth it. Some patients report an immediate enhancement in skin texture and a subtle glow shortly after the procedure. However, the more profound results, like noticeable reduction in dark circles and enhanced skin elasticity, typically surface after a few weeks. This delay is because it works by stimulating the body's natural collagen production and healing processes, which take time. The gradual transformation ensures that the rejuvenation looks entirely natural, avoiding any abrupt or artificial appearance changes.

Is Plasma For Under Eyes Safe For All Skin Types?

Plasma's beauty lies in its universality. Since it harnesses the patient's own plasma, it's inherently compatible with their physiological makeup, making it suitable for all skin types and tones. Regardless of whether one has oily, dry, combination, or sensitive skin, the treatment offers a tailored solution. That said, an initial consultation is always beneficial. It provides an opportunity to discuss specific concerns, undergo a skin assessment, and ensure the treatment aligns perfectly with individual needs and expectations.
