PRF Hair Restoration Pre & Post-care Instructions

PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin) hair restoration offered at Le Mon Spa, is a non-surgical procedure used to stimulate hair growth and improve hair density in individuals experiencing hair loss or thinning hair.



The PRF hair restoration procedure is relatively quick and minimally invasive. Prior to receiving this treatment it’s important to review and follow the below pre and post treatment instructions to receive the best results.


What To Expect Post Treatment

PRF hair restoration patients should expect mild inflammation, peeling, redness, swelling, scabbing, and/or bruising for a few days post treatment. If feel any pain, you can take an over-the-counter pain reliever.


PRF Hair Restoration Pre-Care

1.PRF hair restoration patients should avoid NSAIDS (Ibuprofen, Motrin, Aleve, Naprosyn and Aspirin) for 7-days before their treatment. Tylenol is okay to use in its place.

2.Patients should avoid these nutritional supplements for 7-days before receiving PRF hair restoration: Gingko, Garlic, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Flax Oil, Curcumin and other anti-inflammatory nutrients.

3.Patients should not take systemic steroids (prednisone, dexamethasone) 7-days prior to their treatment.

4.Avoid alcohol and cigarettes for 7-prior to your treatment as it may put you at an increased risk for bleeding and bruising.

5.Patients should hydrate well 2 days before and the day of the procedure for ease of blood draw.

6. Patients should wash hair in the morning before appointment, arriving with no cap or hair product (hair spray or gel).


PRF Hair Restoration Post-Care

1. Do not touch, press or manipulate the injected area for 8-hours post treatment.

2. Do not shower immediately for 6-hours post treatment.

3. Do not wash the treated area for at least 24-hours post procedure. After this time, keep the area clean.

Head Care:

1). Do not use water hotter than your skin when washing your hair. Gently rub your scalp with your fingertips when washing your hair, and be gentle when drying.

2). Do not use ice packs on your scalp because the cold inhibits PRF activity. The scalp in the treated area may appear pink or red for several hours after treatment.

3). We usually recommend delaying typical hair care, such as blow-drying, coloring, curling, etc., for one to two days.


4. Do not wear a hat for at least 24-hours to reduce the chance of infection.

5. Avoid NSAIDS (Ibuprofen, Motrin, Aleve, Naprosyn, Aspirin) for 7-days post treatment. Tylenol is okay to use in its place for pain.

6. Patients should avoid these nutritional supplements for 7-days post treatment: Gingko, Garlic, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Flax Oil, Curcumin and other anti-inflammatory nutrients.

7. Patients should not use systemic steroids (prednisone, dexamethasone) for 7-days post treatment.

8. PRF hair restoration patients should avoid alcohol and cigarettes for 7-days after their treatment.

9. Eat healthy and hydrate very well, drinking at least 64-ounces of water per day for 7-days.
