Stem Cell Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
In the field of Aesthetics, stem cells are widely used along with other therapies like Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to rejuvenate and reverse aging. Filling areas that have lost volume as a cause of aging is the best way to restore a youthful and natural look. This procedure consists of obtaining fat from liposuction and injecting it in another area like the face, the hands or the breast to restore the volume that is normally lost with aging. The fat that is enriched with stem cells (stem cell rich) has the ability to produce new blood vessels making the fat survive 40% longer than when it is stem cell poor. This produces a very natural look and long lasting results without the need of scars or surgeries.
Blood is drawn from the patient to obtain Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), a blood component that contains natural growth factors. The PRP is also injected in the site of injury, as in the field of Orthopedics. These growth factors send signals for other cells to join the healing and repair process of the tissues.
