What to consider before your PRP treatment

To make your treatment go as smoothly as possible for you, there are a few things you can think about to make your PRP treatment easier. These guidelines are designed with the goal that your treatment will have the expected outcome.

Avoid Omega-3

Avoid taking tablets containing omega-3 three days before your treatment. This also applies to foods rich in omega-3 fats such as fish and avocados. Omega-3 contains a substance that is a blood thinner and makes it easier to bruise. If you take omega-3 beforehand, the risk of bruising after treatment is high.

Drink water

Make sure you drink plenty of water before your PRP treatment. If you are too dehydrated, it will be more difficult to draw blood from you and it is your blood that we want to extract the growth factors from your blood plasma.

Do not take Ipren

Ibuprofen is the active ingredient in Ipren and it has a blood-thinning effect. Therefore, you should avoid it 48 hours before treatment. Ibuprofen makes you more likely to get blood spots on your skin when it is punctured by needles during treatment. Blood spots are technically a bruise and are caused by the blood not having time to clot normally due to the thinning of the blood. These marks usually disappear in 4 days, but this can vary from person to person.


Do not do the treatment in case of fever. Then the body has other things to focus on. However, having a slight cold at the time of treatment is not dangerous and does not affect the outcome of the treatment.


It is possible to practice before your treatment. Afterwards, however, you should avoid exercising on the same day. This is to avoid increasing blood circulation. This causes the plasma in the body to spread faster.


Avoid alcohol the day before and the day after treatment. Plasma becomes less effective with alcohol in the body.
