Regenerative Medicine Q & A
What is regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a medical specialty that restores normal bodily function or enhances your appearance using stem cells and growth factors that are harvested from your body. With regenerative medicine, Dr. Rogers Centers uses your body’s own cellular repair mechanisms and reverse cellular tissue degeneration.
What are PRP injections?
PRP or platelet-rich plasma is a serum your provider creates from spinning your blood in a centrifuge and isolating its platelets. Platelets are a component of your blood that contains growth factors, which help your body repair tissue, regenerate bone, develop new blood vessels, and stimulate the process of healing wounds.
By injecting damaged areas of your body with platelet-rich plasma, Dr. Rogers Centers providers can try and enhance your body’s natural healing process and regenerative growth in that area. This makes PRP injections a natural and effective way to stimulate healing and relief for several conditions, including:
PRP injections are a popular solution for tendon pain in the rotator cuff in addition to lateral epicondylitis, patellar tendonitis, and achilles tendonitis.
PRP injections help provide relief from knee pain, elbow pain, and arthritis, in particular, osteoarthritis.
The team at Dr. Rogers Centers can inject specific areas of your scalp to help hair loss stemming from male pattern baldness, female pattern baldness, and hair loss due to metabolic conditions like weight loss.
PRP injections can also help stimulate collagen production to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and rejuvenate your skin.
What are nanofat injections?
Nanofat injections are a type of regenerative medicine that can rejuvenate your face, neck, chest, and buttocks to give you a more youthful appearance.
The injections are made up of fat taken from your body that’s been mechanically emulsified so that it can pass through a needle. The highly advanced emulsification process keeps the properties of your fat healthy, intact, and replete with stem cells.
Your body’s fat has powerful regenerative properties that increase collagen production in your targeted areas and make your skin and tissues more elastic. The result is an improved appearance of your target area that makes you look younger, healthier, and more vibrant.
What is stem cell therapy?
Stem cells are your body’s raw materials. They have the capability to become any cell type in your body, like bone cells, heart muscle cells, brain cells, or blood cells. They’re incredibly useful in regenerative medicine because they are being studied to help your body repair injured, dysfunctional, or diseased tissue at a cellular level.
Stem cells are being studied for Autoimmune disorders, Multiple Sclerosis, Joint degradation and many other cellular degenerative diseases.
