Aftercare PRP

After the treatment with PRP I advise you:

  • Do not apply make-up for the first 2 to 4 hours after treatment because there are small puncture holes.
  • The first 24 hours to avoid a visit to the sauna.
  • Clean the skin with the products you normally use.
  • To apply on any blue spots a high sun protection factor cream, because under the influence of sun blue spots can become pigment spots.

Follow-up appointments

  • After the first treatment I see you back after 4 to 8 weeks for a follow-up appointment for the second treatment. The third treatment is then 4-8 weeks later.
  • Repeat treatments to maintain the effect every 6 months, usually a single treatment is sufficient.

What can you start to feel after a treatment with PRP

  • The area where you have been treated is slightly swollen and red and feels fair. This disappears in the majority of treatments within 12 hours.
  • Bruising may occur from the time of treatment.
  • Blue spots remain visible for about a week for most people. Sometimes it happens, however, that the bruises only disappear after two weeks.
  • The first week after treatment, some swelling may persist. The final result is a process of several months.

When should you contact the clinic

You call the clinic if the following complications occur:

  • Fever higher than 38 degrees.
  • Continuous bleeding, where pressing with gauzes does not help.
  • Abnormal swelling, pus formation and a throbbing painful feeling.

You then call our emergency number 020-4231303, and you will always immediately get your doctor on the phone.
