Dark, sagging, puffy bags under the eyes are nearly impossible to hide under makeup for very long. Tons of products on the market claim to erase these shadowy circles on your face, but none of them come close to the revitalizing power of the Vampire Facelift. If you are ready to reclaim your fresh and youthful glow, visit Lively Wellness and Aesthetics in Odessa, TX for a rejuvenating PRP facial treatment that removes dark under-eye circles.
What Causes Dark Circles Under the Eyes?
Most people will experience dark circles at some point in their lives. Still, some people experience them more frequently than others. Often we associate dark circles with not getting enough sleep, but fatigue isn’t the only cause. No matter what’s causing your eyes to look this way, the effect is to look less alert and healthy than you should. The most common causes dark eye bags are:
Your chances of experiencing dark circles or bags increase as you age. The body’s natural plumping and volumizing agent, collagen, stops producing in abundance in your twenties. As time goes by, your skin becomes less padded and full, resulting in more fragile skin around the eyes that can appear shadowy or swollen.
Your genes play a role in whether you’ll have dark circles under your eyes. People born with deep-set eyes are more likely to have dark circles than those with other eye structures. The amount of genetically dictated melanin in your skin can also contribute to a darker under-eye appearance.
Allergies, Colds, or Sinus Infections
Any illness that affects your sinuses could create bags in the delicate skin around your eyes. During a cold or with allergies, fluid builds up in your sinuses. The collected liquid is most apparent under your eyes because the skin is more fragile.
Sleep deprivation is the go-to culprit in most people’s minds for a murky, swollen look under the eyes. When you don’t get enough sleep, your body doesn’t have the chance to restore itself. Your blood vessels dilate, and the rush of blood toward the thinner skin of your eyes creates a darkened look.
Sodium and swelling go hand-in-hand, and eating too much dietary salt can make you look exhausted. Sodium tells your body to keep fluid in your body, and this fluid needs a place to hang out. Under the eyes is just one of many regions this water lingers, thus causing that extra padding and shadows.
By now, we all know that smoking wreaks havoc on your skin, but nicotine is a double whammy. Nicotine interrupts sleep, which can prevent your body from healing itself. The substances in tobacco also interfere with the production of collagen and elastin that keep your skin full and taut.
Wine, beer, or spirits: it’s all alcohol, and it dehydrates your skin. Skin lacking moisture becomes weak and bloated, which leads to the formation of under-eye circles.
Skipping sunblock can lead to raccoon eyes. Harmful UV rays penetrate the skin and attack the collagen and elastin responsible for keeping your face looking youthful. As these vital proteins break down, you are more likely to have swelling and discoloration under your eyes.
What’s a Vampire Facelift?
A Vampire Facelift, or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, is a safe and natural minimally invasive skin enriching treatment. PRP is the regenerative property of your blood with powerful healing and restorative powers.
We draw a small sample of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to extract the PRP. Once the PRP enters your under-eye region, it gets to work using organic healing processes to bring you more supple and radiant skin.
How a Vampire Facelift Kicks Dark Eye Circles to the Curb
A Vampire Facelift is the premier treatment for dark eye circles and bags because it uses your own PRP to restore, rebuild, and repair your skin from the inside out. Below we look at some of the incredible ways this PRP skin treatment gets rid of bags and circles.
It promotes natural collagen production. Often, a lack of collagen is to blame for the dark shadows looming below your eyelids. By restoring collagen, you get a long-lasting respite from unwanted darkened under-eye curves.
Better Blood Flow
Injecting PRP under your eyes improves the quality of blood that circulates to the area. This better blood activates your body’s inner instinct to heal itself. It flushes away old, tired cells and encourages swelling to subside.
Removes Old Cells
PRP gets cells moving to clear unwanted cells away from the delicate eye skin. A sluggish metabolic response in the skin can keep old fat cells lurking under your eyes. When old fat cells build, it creates an inflamed and cushioned appearance. After as little as one week, you’ll see the smoothing effects of PRP in your face that will help you look well-rested and more alive than ever.
Creates New Blood Vessels
This injectable facelift creates new, healthy blood vessels for a stunningly gorgeous glow. New blood vessels created by PRP are filled with nurturing oxygen and supportive nutrients that bring your complexion back to its youthful brilliance.
What Can I Expect From Treatment?
Your minimally invasive facelift treatment begins with PRP therapy. We then use dermal fillers to enhance your skin for the most rewarding results. You’ll notice visible improvements upon leaving our office. More incredible rejuvenation occurs over the following weeks as the PRP works with your body to deliver enhanced results.
