Advanced treatment. Naturally youthful results.
The body's unique capacity for regeneration has long been well known to the medical world. Sports medicine, orthopedics, dentistry, and other specialties of medicine have all adopted procedures that function harmoniously with the body. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and, more recently, platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) are frequently used to aid joint healing and treat degenerative diseases. It was only a matter of time before science realized the potential PRP and PRF-based natural rejuvenation held for the skin, the body's largest organ. We are pleased to offer PRP and PRF treatments to help our patients address their cosmetic concerns through the power of natural cellular regeneration.
Enhanced Natural Rejuvenation
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is an organic compound that has long been praised for its capacity to speed up wound healing and tissue regrowth. Everybody's blood contains the chemical, making it both safe and practical. PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) is the latest evolution of PRP treatment. Unlike PRP, PRF contains no anticoagulant. This allows it to create scaffolding where it’s injected and releases natural growth factors slower and longer, facilitating superior results.
Due to the abundance of growth factors they carry, platelets are incredibly effective for rejuvenation. They fuel tissue remodeling to produce comprehensive dermal repair, improving the skin's appearance, texture, and elasticity.
PRP and PRF can be applied in two ways to stimulate cellular regeneration. Depending on your specific concerns, your treatment may be administered via injection beneath the skin or with microneedling. PRP and PRF improve texture, volume, and radiance by inducing numerous regenerative processes. The several growth factors found in blood deliver the skin with the necessary proteins, electrolytes, hormones, and other nutrients. Proteins are essential for synthesizing fibrin polymer, providing a solid framework for thicker, firmer, more youthful tissue. When the body is injured, platelets within the plasma naturally react by triggering rapid tissue regeneration through cellular and vascular regrowth.
NUMED Medical Aesthetics Center offers three options to suit every patient’s goals and budget. In addition to traditional PRP and more advanced PRF treatments, we also provide EmCyte PRP, the pinnacle of platelet-based rejuvenation treatments. During your consultation, we will assess every aspect of your needs to recommend the treatment that will provide you with the best overall experience.
No filler. Just you.
The growth factors contained in PRP and PRF are involved in almost every regenerative process in the body. A number of advantages come from the stimulation of collagen proliferation that occurs when growth factors are injected beneath the skin.
PRP and PRF injections add volume to the face's atrophying or drooping areas. Dark undereye circles and bags can be lightened, and the cheeks can be rounded out for a fuller, more youthful look. PRP injections also help to develop softer, smoother, tighter skin over time because of continual collagen remodeling. Platelet-rich plasma and fibrin injections are safe for all skin tones and types. The risk of unwanted side effects, such as an allergic reaction, is significantly reduced by the treatment's organic nature and the use of your own blood product.
PRP and PRF boost natural regeneration, so you can expect the most authentically youthful-looking results. As these treatments boost collagen, you can expect improvements to your skin’s appearance and texture, such as increased smoothness, a more even and brighter tone, restored volume in depleted areas, and enhanced skin elasticity.
An Ideal Solution for Most Patients
Because PRP and PRF use contents from your blood and no synthetic ingredients, these treatments are safe and effective for the vast majority of patients. However, you may not be a candidate if you have any conditions that affect your blood or your body’s ability to heal. For any medical-grade treatment, it is essential that you discuss any medical conditions or substances you consume to ensure the safest treatment possible.
Just Minutes to Long-lasting Rejuvenation
These treatments are as convenient as they are effective, taking only a few minutes to administer and producing results that last a year or longer.
Injection therapy for PRP takes slightly longer than a typical injectable therapy. We start with a standard blood draw. While the blood is being processed in the centrifuge, a topical numbing lotion may be administered to the treatment region if preferred. This only requires a few minutes. Your providing specialist will thoroughly examine the target area to determine the optimal placement for injections. Typically, the entire procedure takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete. Microneedling with PRP or PRF is also brief, taking approximately 30 minutes from start to finish.
Patients can resume normal activity immediately following their procedure. Slight redness and swelling are normal, and some patients experience minor bruising. These side effects typically disappear within the first day after treatment.
PRP and PRF treatments present a minimal risk compared to other injectable treatments because these therapies only use components found naturally in your body. While prolonged swelling or infection may occur in some cases, such risks can be greatly reduced with treatment from experienced medical professionals. Our providers have been extensively trained in these therapies to ensure the safest, highest-quality treatment.
With PRP and PRF treatments, you can expect exquisitely rejuvenated results that improve gradually over time, with substantial results appearing three to four months after your procedure. Your results may continue to develop and improve for over a year, with effects lasting as long as two years or more. It is also possible that PRP and PRF treatments offset natural degeneration to slow the appearance of aging.
