PRP injections are used in the medical and cosmetic fields. In the medical field, they can promote healing of certain injuries and sometimes relieve pain long term. In the cosmetic industry, PRP injections are often used to promote collagen production and restore volume in targeted areas. At PRP In Seattle, we use injections of platelet rich plasma during hair restoration, non-surgical BBLs, and PRP for tear troughs. With many procedures available, patients often want to know, “How long is recovery after PRP injection?”
Generally, patients will experience some pain and tenderness in the injection area for a day or so following the procedure, similar to other injections. Otherwise, the recovery will depend on the procedure. Most of the time, patients can return to their daily lives. They may want to take it easy for a few days for their own comfort. Sometimes with hair restoration, they may also experience some mild swelling which can improve with rest.
The non-surgical BBL will require a longer recovery time than the aforementioned procedures. However, compared to a surgical BBL, it is minimal. Patients usually return to their full activities (other than maybe some forms of exercise) after a week. Unlike a surgery, patients will likely not need pain medications and can often return to work the next day.
