PRP Pre-Treatment Instruction:

  • To minimize bruising, avoid the following ~7 days prior to treatment:  
    • baby aspirin, Aleve, Motrin, multivitamins, vitamin E and D, fish oils, and alcoholic beveragesincluding wine. Do not take Herbal medications of any kind, for example Tumeric or Garlic.   
    • If you take a prescription blood thinner continue to take this medication, but let the nurse know when you arrive prior to treatment. These are blood thinners and will cause you to bruise more easily.  Note: DO NOT discontinue baby aspirin or any blood thinners prescribed by a physician before checking with THAT PHYSICIAN. 
  •  Certain extrinsic factors, such as alcohol consumption and smoking, diminish stem cell release. You will be advised to avoid these as to increase your likelihood for treatment satisfaction.
  • Ensure you drink at least 32 oz. of water the day prior to the blood draw and at least 16 oz. of water on the day of the blood draw. The more hydrated you are, the easier the blood draw.
  • Your appointment will need to be rescheduled if you have a bacterial or fungal infection in the treatment area.  Additionally, if you have a respiratory infection or virus your appointment will need to be rescheduled until you are feeling better.   
  • If you have an abrasion in the desired treatmentyour appointment will need to be rescheduled as the area could become infected through injection.  
  • Always inform your clinician of all medications you are taking, as well as any changes in your medical history. 

PRP Post-Treatment Instruction:


Do ice for up to 24 hours (half hour on/half hour off). Please be aware that using ice on newly injected skin, or thin and fragile skin, can cause injury. Frostbite can occur from ice left on the skin too long. 

  • Do use Arnica if bruising is visible. The bruising will dissipate over the next 7-14 days depending on your individual healing process. 
  • Do make a follow-up appointment with your nurse injector – communication is so important.  
  • Do contact your nurse injector following the PRP Hair Restoration treatment if redness, swelling, tenderness, lumps or bumps appear in the treated area.  
  • Do wash your scalp the evening of the PRP treatment or next day.
  • Do avoid hair gel and hair creams, if possible. When using, use minimal amounts.
  • Do continue using a hair dryer if needed, it should be used on a low setting.
  • Do return for the next treatment in 1 month, or per the instructions of your clinician.



  • Do not apply ice after 24 hours.
