I would try doing them the same day! That way you can take advantage of being under the local.  If you've already had a transplant, I would do it as soon as the doctor gives you the OK.  Two reasons for this.  It can help bring in the grafts sooner and it can help reverse miniaturization.  The sooner you do it, the sooner you can take advantage of the benefit.

I had one on the day of the HT and have had 2 post (at around 1.5 month intervals). I really hope they add some value cause they're pretty painful.

Can the needle damage the transplanted UF or cause inflammatory processes into the donor area?

Right before?  It is the first time I hear it, I always knew immediately after and then selected every three months.

No, PRP is done very superficially and typically there is no local used.

Yes, your forehead will swell.  If it doesn't the PRP was not successful. This will last about a day, it is very short lived.
