- No harsh chemical coloring or perming treatments should be performed for at least 72 hours.
- Use of topical hair growth treatments like Minoxidil or similar can resume the next day.
Are there any factors that would make someone ineligible for PRP?
- The vast majority of healthy individuals can easily undergo PRP treatments.
