A Simple, Natural and Safe Solution for Dark Circles and Under-Eye Hollows
Those dark circles can make you look tired and old. Dermal fillers are risky in this area because the skin is very thin. Light reflection off the fillers through the skin can give off a bluish tinge called the Tyndall effect. Even the slightest reaction to the filler can cause very noticeable swelling that can last for years. We don't recommend dermal fillers under the eyes!
Now you have a safe and easy solution. By extracting platelets from your own blood we can create a plasma solution that is very rich in growth factors. We call this PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). PRP is a great way to regenerate collagen which helps to improve the pigmentation and fine lines under the eyes. Using our proprietary centrifuge protocols and precise temperature control, we can turn the PRP into a gel called PRF. This gel is injected using a blunt tipped cannula allowing us to add instant volume as well as all the great regenerative results that PRP offers. We call this our Vampire Under-Eye treatment after our famous Vampire Facelift® and Vampire Facial®
Our Protocol: We recommend two PRP Gel Under-eye treatment. Your second treatment will be 4 months after the first treatment. You will start to see results immediately and results will continue to get better over several months. The booster at 4 months will help the collagen stimulation to continue for up to a year. The cost for the initial treatment is $1200 and the booster at 4 months is $600. ($1500 for both if paid up front).
What to expect: You will have some swelling for about 3 days. Sometimes the swelling can last a little longer, everyone is different. There is a small risk of bruising but because we use a blunt tipped cannula, bruising is very rare. The blunt cannula also minimizes the risk of injecting into a blood vessel. You will see the hollowness fill out immediately but the volume may decrease after a few weeks, but don't worry, the PRF gel sends a signal to tell your body to produce more collagen to replace the volume and the booster at 4 months will keep the collagen production going for up to a year.
Because this is such a simple procedure, you can repeat it every year and stay ahead of the aging process!

Dr. Song is a faculty trainer for the American Cosmetic Cellular Medicine Association. He trains and certifies physicians from around the world in the Vampire® procedures. Here Dr. Song is receiving a PRF Gel injection from a trusted colleague, Dr. Jing Niu. Dr. Song firmly believes that he should never offer a treatment to his patients unless it is something he would give to himself or his family members.
Long Term Solutions
If you are interested in the regenerative effects of PRP and PRF gel, but want something more long lasting, our SCEFI Fat transfer is a more permanent solution. Placing live fat cells harvested from another part of your body into the areas of volume loss in your face will give you results that last for the rest of your life. Of course, you will continue to age, but the extra volume will make you look younger than your age for years to come. You can always add more over time to keep up with aging but you will just be adding to what you previously added instead of starting from scratch.
