Vivace PRP Facial/Facelift Post Treatment Instructions

Immediate pinpoint bleeding can occur, which should resolve within 24 hours

  • Minor redness and swelling may occur for 1-2 days
  • Minor peeling and flakiness can occur after a few days. Don’t pick at the loose skin. Call Sweet Spot MediSpa if you experience excessive redness, swelling, pain, or drainage as these might indicate an infection

Post Care

  • The initial 72 hours post-procedure are the most critical
  • Avoid direct sun and heat for 3-4 weeks. This includes simple day to day tasks such as gardening, cooking over a hot stove for a long period of time, sitting next to a bonfire or fireplace, etc.
  • Discontinue use of any Alpha-Hydroxy products 5 days after treatment. You may resume your home care regimen when skin is no longer flaking and peeling.
  • Use hydrating and reparative products. Products rich in soothing and healing ingredients are best to encourage new healthy cell growth. Peptides, antioxidants, stem cells, vitamins A, C and E, and growth factors work very well.
  • Use physical sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher. Re-apply every 30 to 90 minutes. Do NOT go outside without sun protection (even on a cloudy day).
  • Do not apply your regular make-up and SPF for a minimum of 24 hours after your treatment
  • Itching, redness, and swelling are normal parts of the healing process. These symptoms rarely persist longer than 24-72 hrs.
  • Do NOT scratch or peel the skin as this may cause permanent scarring.
  • Limit exercise the first week.
  • Drink plenty of water.
