Regenerative medicine includes treatments that promote and enhance your body’s natural ability to heal itself. When you get an injury, like a cut, your body does the healing on its own. Regenerative medicine harnesses those abilities to help you heal faster and more effectively.
At Youthful Reflexion, the team offers several regenerative medicine treatment options. If you’re uncertain about how regenerative medicine might help you and its benefits, the team can answer your questions and help you decide if platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy or stem cell therapy aligns with your treatment goals.
Regenerative medicine gets its name from the way in which regenerative treatments help your tissues grow and regenerate to restore or improve their functioning.
If you’re interested in using regenerative medicine for treatment, you have several options to explore at Youthful Reflexion. Your options include:
PRP is an injectable serum that the team creates using your own blood. They place your blood sample in a centrifuge to help the components separate and use only the plasma (liquid) and the platelets, which are cells that aid in healing. PRP injections can treat lines and wrinkles on your skin.
PRP injections in your scalp can help with hair restoration if you’re balding or have thinning hair. PRP stimulates healing in and around your follicles to help them continue growing your natural hair.
Stem cells are unspecialized cells found in your fat and bone marrow. The team manipulates your stem cells to specialize into the type of cell you need to repair certain diseased or damaged tissues.
Regenerative medicine is a great alternative to other approaches and pharmaceutical treatments. These methods make use of your own natural cells and other resources to minimize your chances of negative reactions to the treatments.
Many people consider regenerative medicine to be the future of medicine. There is much potential for regenerative treatments like stem cell therapy and PRP therapy to treat injuries and wear-and-tear damage throughout the body.
Using regenerative medicine can help you heal faster and with a better outcome in terms of tissue function.
