Pre- and Aftercare - Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet Rich Plasma
Pre treatment Care
Do not use blood-thinning medications (Aspirin, Warfarin, Plavix etc) for 5 days prior to treatment.
Post treatment Care
Do not have facial treatment, rub or massage the treated area for 2 weeks after your injectables. Avoid strenuous exercise, hot showers, and sauna for 24 hours after treatment.
Avoid rubbing and direct affecting the treated area for 24 hours.
Most facials, chemical peels, laser and light treatments may be done immediately prior to the PRP treatment but not for 2 weeks after. Anti-wrinkle injections using substance "b" may be injected immediately before or after PRP treatment.
If you should develop a headache after injection treatment use paracetamol (Panadol) instead aspirin or ibuprofen.
During the first 24 to 48 hours after injection you may experience redness, swelling and tenderness. This reaction is normal and will resolve quickly over another 2 to 4 days.
For a minimum of 5 hours after the PRP has been applied do not wash your skin, expose the treated area to direct high heat or engage in activities that will get the skin wet or cause you to sweat (blow dryer, sun exposure, sauna, steam room, hot shower, hot yoga, strenuous exercise).
