Pre Treatment Care
A good pre-treatment protocol for Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) facial treatment can help maximize the benefits of the treatment and minimize potential side effects.
Here are some general guidelines:
Avoid using blood-thinning medications, supplements, or herbs such as aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil, vitamin E, and ginkgo biloba for at least one week before the treatment, unless advised otherwise by your healthcare provider.
Avoid smoking and consuming alcohol for at least 24 hours before the treatment, as these can affect the healing process.
Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and avoiding caffeine and sugary drinks.
Avoid excessive sun exposure and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher for at least one week before the treatment to prevent sun damage.
Avoid using harsh or abrasive skin care products such as exfoliants, scrubs, or acids for at least 48 hours before the treatment.
Notify your healthcare provider of any medical conditions or medications you are taking, including over-the-counter medications and supplements.
Follow any specific pre-treatment instructions provided by your healthcare provider.
It’s important to remember that every individual’s skin reacts differently to treatments, so it is always best to consult with your healthcare provider for specific pre-treatment instructions tailored to your needs.
Post Treatment Care
After a Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment for the face, it is important to follow a good skin care protocol to ensure proper healing and optimal results. Here are some general guidelines:
Avoid direct sun exposure and wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher daily.
Avoid using harsh or abrasive skin care products such as exfoliants, scrubs, or acids for the first week after treatment.
Use gentle, fragrance-free, and non-comedogenic products that are specifically formulated for sensitive skin.
Avoid applying makeup for the first 24 hours after the treatment, and then use only mineral-based makeup that is gentle on the skin.
Do not pick, scratch, or rub the treated area as this may cause irritation, infection, or scarring.
Keep the skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water and using a good quality moisturizer twice daily.
Follow your skincare provider’s post-treatment instructions and attend any scheduled follow-up appointments to ensure optimal healing and results.
