Regenerative Therapy Q&A

What is regenerative therapy?

Regenerative therapy uses natural substances harvested either from your own blood and tissues or from donated products.

These substances make use of your body’s own healing abilities to stimulate new tissue growth and have valuable applications in cosmetic procedures, as well as being increasingly popular as a medical treatment.

Regenerative therapies can support the growth of new cells, create tiny blood vessels called capillaries in a process known as angiogenesis, and stimulate collagen production.

What kinds of regenerative therapies are there?

There are several types of regenerative therapy available. The team at Laser & Vitality Institute offers both stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy.

Stem cell therapy

Stem cell therapy uses either stem cells harvested from your own tissues or donated umbilical cord blood. Stem cells are remarkable because they can change into whatever types of cells you need. You do retain some stem cells into adulthood, in the fatty tissues or bone marrow, but cord blood is a particularly rich source as babies have high levels of stem cells in their system.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

PRP contains platelets taken from your own blood. Platelets are the cells that help your blood to clot when you have an injury. They also have a plentiful supply of growth factors, the substances that help wounds to heal and new tissue to grow. Your provider at Laser & Vitality Institute takes a blood sample from you and extracts the platelets using a centrifuge. They then inject the concentrated solution back into your body.

What are regenerative therapies used for?

The team at Laser & Vitality Institute uses regenerative therapies to promote healthy tissue growth during cosmetic procedures such as injectable facelifts and micro-needling, as well as for:

  • Neck rejuvenation
  • Reducing stretch marks
  • Décolleté rejuvenation
  • Minimizing scars
  • Treating hyperpigmentation
  • Rejuvenating hands

Your provider injects the chosen regenerative therapy into your tissues, where it goes to work healing and restoring, giving you a more youthful appearance.

How long does it take for regenerative therapy to work?

After your regenerative therapy session, you need to allow at least a few weeks before you can expect to see any changes. The cells in the stem cell or PRP injections can take several months and sometimes longer to reach their regeneration potential, and you may need to undergo several sessions to achieve optimal results.

Regenerative therapy techniques aren’t an instant fix for aesthetic concerns, but the results could be more long-lasting than some other cosmetic treatments. Regenerative therapy is also a safe, minimally invasive treatment that produces natural-looking results and doesn’t require any downtime. It’s therefore a convenient and effective solution to common cosmetic blemishes and signs of aging.
