Heal Your Way to Healthier Skin

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses your body’s natural healing process to stimulate collagen growth to renew your skin and hair. Below we have our post-care recommendations for seeing your ideal results.

Let’s achieve your healthiest skin yet, together. Book a free consultation today.

PRP Post-Care

Please be patient after your PRP procedure, as it takes 4–6 weeks for new collagen formation to develop. To optimize your PRP results, here are our recommended post-care instructions:

  • Avoid Aspirin®, Advil®, Motrin®, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Voltaren®, and any other anti-inflammatory medications for 3 days after your procedure – 7 days is preferred
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure including, tanning beds, and wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 daily
  • Avoid warm environments (hot tubs, jacuzzis, steam rooms, hot yoga, saunas, etc.) for 3 days after your treatment
  • Drink plenty of water for the next 7 days – preferably FIJI water as it’s high in silica which promotes collagen and elastin production

For Skin

  • Use a gentle cleanser and lukewarm water to wash the face for the first 72 hours 
  • Do not use toners containing alcohol; use a gentle moisturizer as needed
  • You may return to your skincare products and makeup when your skin is no longer irritated, typically 4–5 days after treatment
  • You will begin to see improvement in overall texture and tone shortly after your treatment, but full results take up to 3 months

For Hair

  • Avoid washing the treatment area for 48 hours. After that, you may resume hair and skincare products and continue with topical medications
  • Use shampoo that is pH balanced
  • The treatment effects are most noticeable after 6 months

Possible Side Effects

You may experience bruising, redness, itching, swelling, and/or soreness. These potential side effects are normal and will resolve on their own.

Please contact us immediately if any of the following occur: drainage, increased warmth at or around the treatment area, fever, severe pain that is unresponsive to over-the-counter pain relievers.
