P. R. P. Aftercare

P. R. P.  (Platelet Rich Plasma)

 

Post Op Instructions
  • Following the procedure your scalp may remain numb for a few hours.
  • Your scalp may feel lumpy until the plasma is absorbed by the scalp.
  • Ice compresses may be used periodically (on and off) on the scalp or forehead to prevent swelling on the day of treatment.
  • If swelling persists for more than 3 days or is visible, please contact our office.
  • Avoid getting your hair colored or using medicated shampoos until 48 hours after treatment.
  • You may experience some soreness of the scalp for approximately 3 to 4 days. However, it can persist for a week or more.  This soreness usually feels like a mild sunburn.
  • Over the counter medications (Tylenol/Advil) can be used as needed for patient comfort.
  • Normal activities can resume after treatment.
  • No heavy lifting (over 30Lbs) or vigorous exercise 24 hours after your procedure.
  • No hot tubs for 24 hours.
  • Sleep with head elevated above your heart for 3-4 days after your treatment. You may do this longer if swelling occurs.
  • After your last required treatment, a follow up will be scheduled to determine if further treatment or maintenance is necessary.
