The skin around our eyes is especially thin and delicate. As we lose collagen with age and sun exposure, the tissue thins and blood vessels below the eyes can make the skin appear dark.
Dark under-eye circles can also be triggered by other factors such as lack of sleep and genetics.
For the infraorbital area specifically (under the eyes), PRP injections can be an effective alternative to areas that are difficult to treat with filler. The growth factors in the PRP stimulate new collagen production helping to improve skin texture, firmness and elasticity, increase volume and skin thickness and reduce dark circles caused by thin skin.
