Regenerative health is a branch of medicine that uses your body’s natural cells and healing properties to its advantage. Regenerative treatments focus on rebuilding your tissues to help them function more efficiently, especially as you age. There are several treatments that use regenerative health available at S. Aesthetics.MD and your provider can help you explore each one in the context of your health.
Many regenerative treatments utilize a substance that comes from your blood called platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP is becoming extremely popular and has many clinical and cosmetic applications. It consists of the liquid plasma from your blood as well as a high concentration of platelets, the type of cell responsible for clotting your blood when you get injured. The platelets release growth factors that repair tissue damage and help grow new, healthy tissues.
The PRP in your regenerative health treatments comes from your own body. Your provider draws a sample of your blood and puts the sample in a centrifuge where it spins rapidly for several minutes. Once it comes out, it is no longer a uniform liquid. Instead, it includes several layers. The layer containing many platelets is the PRP, and your provider separates it to prepare it for your injections.
Research shows that injections of PRP into balding areas of the scalp can help promote hair growth by repairing your follicles.
