PRP for undereye treatment on NSAIDS
I don't know how much the results are affected by the NSAID but I wouldn't use them when getting PRP. The real question is if you are getting PRP that is of any quality. The sweet spot is 6X the normal level of platelets in the blood, which is 1.6 million plts/ml. Most clinics inject a very weak form of PRP and results are affected. Having said that, PRP needs to administer with other treatments to get optimal results. See link.

Thank you for the question. I always advise my patients to stop taking NSAID’s before and after PRP treatment. This is because you do not want anything to hinder the inflammatory response. I recommend having a follow up your treating physician.

Thanks for your question! I always advise my patients to stop their NSAID's before and after any PRP treatment, as I don't want anything to blunt the inflammatory response. I recommend following up with your practitioner or getting a second opinion. Best of luck!
