Thick, Full, Natural Hair
Hair loss affects countless men and women around the globe. If you have noticed your hair thinning or shedding more than before, you may be one of the millions of people seeking a way to restore your hair's healthy growth. While surgical solutions have long been available, our goal is to provide you with the most advanced non-surgical treatments in the industry today. In keeping with our dedication to minimally invasive aesthetic treatments, we are proud to offer a groundbreaking solution that has quickly developed a proven track record of success: PRP and PRF therapies. NUMED Medical Aesthetics Center in Carolina and Mayaguez offers PRP and PRF hair restoration to stimulate cellular regeneration and natural hair growth. No incisions. No downtime. No scars. Just thicker, denser, healthier hair.
Derived From Your Body, For Your Body
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. It exists naturally within your blood and contains potent growth factors to stimulate and enhance cellular regeneration. PRP has a long history of medical applications supporting the repair of joint and soft tissue damage. It was only a matter of time until PRP entered the world of aesthetics to promote healthy, natural skin and hair rejuvenation.
Most recently, PRP has evolved into its most recent iteration, PRF. PRF (or platelet-rich fibrin) allows for some white blood cells and stem cells to remain in the plasma for enhanced benefits.
PRP or PRF Treatment
The primary purpose of PRP or PRF treatment for hair loss is to stimulate activity in the hair follicles. This may prompt an active phase of hair growth in follicles that have become inactive. PRP injections into the scalp may also support the active phase of newly implanted hair follicles. This occurs through the action of various growth factors found naturally within your blood.
What Are The Advantages Of This Procedure?
Platelet-rich plasma and fibrin are often ideal solutions to hair loss for several reasons. First, PRP and PRF are completely organic and harvested directly from the blood. Treatment is optimally safe and convenient, and it works. PRP and PRF can be prescribed as the sole form of treatment, or they may be used in combination with other hair restoration procedures, such as topical treatments or surgical restoration.
Ideal for Men & Women in Puerto Rico
If you have androgenic alopecia or diffuse thinning, PRP or PRF hair restoration is likely an ideal solution for you. These treatments are highly suitable for most hair restoration patients. However, some blood-related conditions may prevent some patients from undergoing PRP and PRF therapies.
Three Steps to Enhanced Hair Growth
Your platelet-based treatment will begin with a simple blood draw. Once your providing physician has taken a small sample of your blood, they will place it in a centrifuge to separate its contents and isolate the PRP. The centrifugation speed will determine whether the remaining substance is PRP or PRF. A higher speed will separate the PRP from other contents, while slower centrifugation will allow some white blood cells and stem cells to remain (PRF).
Studies show that the additional contents in PRF may facilitate more substantial and longer-lasting results. PRP and PRF can be administered to the scalp in two ways: injection and microneedling. While PRP and PRF can be injected directly into the scalp to support localized follicular repair, the skilled physicians at NUMED use microneedling to deliver your platelet-rich solution throughout all areas affected by hair loss.
Microneedling involves the creation of microchannels with a handheld tool containing multiple tiny needles. As the needles stamp into the scalp, they create microscopic injuries that stimulate repair and allow your PRP or PRF to be absorbed into the scalp. Through tiny wounds and the introduction of growth factors, microneedling with PRP or PRF stimulates extensive cellular regeneration to repair hair follicles and naturally promote hair growth.
What Happens After The Procedure?
Hair rejuvenation with PRP or PRF involves zero downtime. However, there are some medications that you will need to avoid immediately after your treatment to ensure the best results, including anti-inflammatories. Your physician will advise you on how to manage any post-treatment discomfort without compromising your results.
How Long Will It Take To See a Difference?
You will likely see a noticeable increase in your hair's thickness, fullness, and length within about two or three months after your first treatment, with continued improvements.
Most patients undergo an initial series of treatments followed by regular maintenance treatments to jumpstart and maintain enhanced cellular repair and hair growth. Your first several treatments will be scheduled monthly. After that, most patients plan their regular maintenance treatments three to six months apart.
