Regenerative medicine can be defined as ‘an interdisciplinary field of research and clinical applications focused on the repair, replacement or regeneration of cells, tissues or organs to restore impaired function resulting from any cause, including congenital defects, disease, trauma and ageing’.
Regenerative aesthetics refers to the application of regenerative medicine principles in aesthetic or cosmetic treatments, products and services. Regenerative medicine is the harnessing or management of the body’s own natural potential to repair, restore and rejuvenate damaged or aging cells and structures to a more healthy and youthful state. The human body is blessed with an incredible potential to repair and rejuvenate itself through the intricate and complicated interaction of growth factors and specific signaling peptides.
We pride ourselves on being experts in joint injections. Our skilled providers specialize in large and small joint injections and have the best technology to ensure optimal healing and results.
We utilize Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP as a solution to help accelerate the healing process. This procedure is completed in three steps. First, we draw your blood. Next, we use a machine called a centrifuge to spin the blood at a high speed to separate the red blood cells from the plasma (yellow fluid) that the red blood cells usually float in. Lastly, we extract the plasma so it can be injection into your joint.
The plasma contains platelets, which have over 7 different growth factors to help stimulate tissue healing. PRP is so effective for joint injections, and is an excellent option if you are looking to avoid surgery or other invasive procedures.
