With a PRP treatment, you are usually first administered anesthetic to reduce any pain, making the injections only slightly uncomfortable. Since the treatment uses your own blood and plasma, the risks are minimal, as well.
After your Platelet-Rich Plasma treatment, you will need to rest your skin for the first 24 hours. Afterwards, you can return to your normal activities, with minimal side effects of redness, skin tightness, and mild bruising that will resolve itself quickly.
With all PRP therapy treatments, it is important to incorporate these treatments as part of your skin care regime. It is important to avoid UV exposure and it is highly recommended to wear sun-protective clothing and wear and reapply an SPF of at least 30.
With PRP treatments, you can expect to see glowing, beautiful results within 2-3 weeks following your treatment.
It is important for you to disclose and share your complete medical history with your service provider which includes supplements, prescribed medication and lifestyle to ensure you are a candidate for Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy. PRP is safe for most skin types, but patients who are breastfeeding, pregnant, have autoimmune disorders, improper wound healing, some skin conditions, recent sun exposure (in the last month), and are on certain medications cannot undergo this treatment.
