DAY 1: The day after the treatment skin may be gently washed with a gentle cleanser, cool water, using hands only and pat dry. Stay away from exfoliants, alchohol based products or acids that are present
is cleaners as these can make your skin very dry after the procedure. Be sure to use an approved SPF30 or greater sunscreen.

DAYS 2-7: Within two (2) days following your procedure, you will notice skin dryness and flaking. This is due to an increased turnover of skin cells. During this period, you may apply your regular skin
moisturizer. Follow the instructions given to you by your practitioner. If your medical professional used the roller around the eyes, you may have a little micro bruising that may exist for three or four days. This
can easily be covered with makeup. Days later, your skin will start shedding. These are skin layers that would regularly shed a week later, but the PRP brings this skin to the surface sooner. During this temporary process,
your skin will shed and be dry. You may use your regular skin care products once your skin is not irritated.

DAYS 7 +: A week after the PRP procedure, most patients notice that their skin is smoother and more radiant. Continue with sun protection every day and reapply every 2 hours if outdoors.
