Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a revolutionary natural therapy that uses stem cells or PRP for healing and anti-aging. 

Stem cells have the ability to regenerate into other cells within your body, and PRP contains growth factors from platelets in your blood with special healing capabilities. Stem cells and PRP stimulate collagen production and repair damaged tissues.

What is regenerative medicine used for?

The experienced medical team at Viva Wellness Medical Group uses regenerative medicine to improve the following conditions:

  • Knee pain
  • Joint pain
  • Other chronic pain
  • Injuries
  • Hair loss
  • Aging skin

PRP enhances healing naturally without surgery or downtime and can make you look and feel years younger.

What should I expect during treatment?

Before your regenerative medicine treatment, your provider reviews your medical history, asks you about your symptoms, and completes a physical exam or skin evaluation to let you know if you’re a good candidate for regenerative medicine. If so, they might recommend:

PRP therapy

During PRP treatment, your practitioner takes a sample of your blood and spins it in a centrifuge to extract platelets from the rest of the blood. They inject PRP near injured or damaged tissues that contribute to chronic pain.

Your aesthetic specialist might combine microneedling with PRP scalp injections for hair restoration or just beneath the skin for a PRP facelift. They may apply PRP to your skin during facials in conjunction with microneedling to allow platelets to deeply penetrate your skin.

Stem cell therapy

Prior to stem cell treatment, your practitioner obtains donated stem cells from a lab. They inject the cells into areas near the site of an injury or chronic pain to enhance healing.

If you’re a good candidate for a stem cell face-lift, your provider injects stem cells at strategic areas of your face to reduce signs of aging, stimulate collagen production, and lift and tighten skin without surgery or downtime.

Is regenerative medicine right for me?

If you suffer from an injury, chronic pain, or signs of aging that make you self-conscious, but you’d like to avoid invasive surgery and lengthy recovery times, regenerative medicine may be the solution you’ve been searching for.
