Facial PRP Post-Treatment Instructions

What to avoid after your Platelet-Rich-Plasma appointment

  • For at least 4 hours after your Facial PRP allow the PRP to remain on your skin.

  • You may rinse your face with lukewarm water and but be sure to avoid using any cleansers with that could irritate your skin.

  • You may experience some discomfort which should settle within 24 hours. If you continue to feel pain, patients can take Acetaminophen as directed on the label.

  • Avoid smoking for 3 days after your treatment.

  • Avoid Retinol, topical Vitamin A, and tretinoin at least 7 days before your treatment.

  • For the first 24-48 hours, you can expect redness, bruising, and swelling. Your skin may also seem raw at first, but rest assured the redness will gradually decrease and start to look like a sunburn. 

  • For at least 72 hours following your Facial PRP do not use any makeup or exfoliating agents on your skin.

  • For the next 72 hours limit exposure to sun or heat. Other activities that heat your skin include tanning beds, steam rooms, and saunas. 

  • Apply a broad-spectrum UVA/UVB, SPF 25 or greater sunscreen to your daily skincare routine to prevent post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

  • For two weeks following your Facial PRP avoid facials, laser treatments or active skincare ingredients that may cause damage or peeling.

  • You may continue to see improvement in your skin for 6 months or more after your treatment. The effects of the treatment may last approximately 10-12 months. Patients will notice a rejuvenated glow, a decrease in pigmentation & discoloration, and scars start to diminish.

  • Please do not hesitate to call our office should you have any questions or concerns regarding your Facial PRP treatment or aftercare.
