Eye Wrinkles and Bags Treatment
Aging, sun exposure, and genetics may cause fine lines and wrinkles to appear around the eyes and puffiness or bags under the eyes. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a cutting edge procedure to correct this condition without involving plastic surgery.

MBody provides this procedure to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg and surrounding communities.
What is PRP?
PRP makes use of natural growth factors in the patient’s own blood to promote the body’s healing process. While PRP has been applied for several medical purposes in the past, it has recently emerged as a proven and effective therapy to reverse the signs of facial aging, including wrinkles, saggy facial skin, and eye bags. Patients who want to avoid plastic surgery can be ideal candidates for PRP based facial anti-aging procedures.
PRP growth factors have the natural property to trigger production of new collagen in the skin and generate new capillaries, while support cellular renewal of the treated areas of the face. PRP facial anti-aging therapy is safe for patients with almost any skin type. The key benefit is that the procedure is minimally invasive and involves body’s own components, which makes it complete safe and natural.
While PRP therapy avoids all the typical risks and complications associated with a surgery, it is also much more affordable and cost-effective than surgery. At MBody, the cost of PRP therapy for under eye wrinkles and bags will be in the range of $1,300 to $1,500, which is a dramatically lower cost than a traditional surgery.
The extent of PRP treatment required by a patient will depend on their unique condition of the eye bags. Patients with very prominent and large-sized eye bags with conspicuous discoloration may need more PRP injections than others. In most cases, the patient will need two to four injections. The final cost of the procedure can vary according to the number of injections needed.
At MBody, every procedure is performed under the guidance and leadership of board certified plastic surgeons. The practice receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg and nearby areas.
While most non-surgical anti-aging procedures are significantly dependent on the skill of the operating expert, PRP therapy primarily works as per the body’s own natural healing processes to reverse the signs of aging. Physical manipulation of the tissue is not involved in this procedure. Therefore, if it does not work, no harm is done because the patient’s face has not been altered in any way.
In comparison to other surgical and non-surgical anti-aging procedures, side effects with PRP therapy are fewer and recovery is faster. For these reasons, PRP is fast emerging as a procedure of choice for reduction of under eye bags and wrinkles.
