What to consider before your PRP treatment

 

In order for your treatment to go as smoothly as possible for you, there are a few things you might consider in order to facilitate your PRP treatment.

Avoid Omega-3

Avoid taking pills containing omega-3 3 days before your treatment. This also applies to food rich in omega-3 fats, such as fish and avocado. Omega-3 contains a substance that is an anticoagulant and makes it easier to bruise, which means it’s extra important to avoid omega-3 if you’re having an injection treatment in the face. Otherwise, there is great risk of bruising after the treatment.

Drink water

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

Don’t take Ipren

IIbuprofen is the active substance in Ipren and acts as an anticoagulant. Therefore, you should avoid taking it 48 hours before treatment if you are having the treatment for the face. If you are having a treatment of the skin, there is a greater risk of you getting blood spots on the skin from the skin being punctured by needles during the treatment. The blood spots are technically a bruise and they appear when the blood does not have time to coagulate normally due to the anticoagulant. These spots normally disappear within 4 days, but this may differ from individual to individual.

Fever

Do not have the treatment if you have a fever. The body will have other things to focus on. Having a slight cold at the time of treatment, however, is perfectly safe and does not impact the result of the treatment.

Exercise

It is perfectly fine to exercise before your treatment. Afterwards, however, you should avoid exercising that day. This to avoid increasing blood circulation, which would make the plasma spread faster in the body.

Alcohol

Avoid alcohol the day before and the day after treatment. The plasma will be less effective with alcohol in the body.
