Do Vampire Facials work for dark circles and bags?

The eyes are often the first thing people notice about you. Dark circles and bags can make you look tired and older than you actually are. Dark circles differ from bags in that they are darkness formed under and around the eye area and are caused by genetics and skin tone. Bags however, appear as swelling under the eye and may be a sign of genetics or the ageing process.


Most people will experience dark circles and bags at some stage, and we often associate them with lack of sleep. However, natural aging, smoking, alcohol and diet can all affect the under-eye area. But PRP therapy can help reduce the signs of aging.

What is PRP under eye Treatment?

PRP, or Platelet-rich plasma, is a safe and natural skin treatment which is minimally invasive and can help enrich and heal your skin. It is also known as the Vampire Facelift. It derives its name from the restorative properties found in our blood.


Platelets are blood cells that are a great source of healing power for your skin. Our bodies naturally use them to heal wounds, increase blood flow, reduce inflammation and even support cell regeneration.

What Results can you Expect from a Vampire Facial?


PRP injections can make your eyes look younger but the treatment is not permanent. However, they last much longer than most other known treatments. We will work with you to choose the right number of PRP treatment sessions based on your skin condition in order to achieve the results you desire.


The non-surgical procedure will see a sample of your blood taken and spun in a centrifuge at such a high speed that it separates the plasma. The plasma contains the collagen and strong proteins needed to create the PRP injection.


As a result, the PRP under eye treatment supports stem cell growth, boosts production of collagen and elastin and helps rejuvenate the skin. The PRP injection enhances your body’s own organic healing powers and encourages blood circulation to the treated area. The area beneath your eye will look brighter, smoother and it altogether reverses the course of aging, giving you a younger appearance.
