Regenerative medicine is a game-changing, evolving area of medicine with the potential to heal damaged tissues and organs, as well as degenerative conditions and signs of aging. Most recently, our understanding of utilizing stem cells and platelet-derived growth factors in cellular therapies has skyrocketed. Cellular therapy may offer solutions for people with conditions that are currently considered beyond repair, or where the only solution might be expensive and painful surgeries.
Regenerative procedure involves two distinct, state-of-the-art technologies:
Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF)
This technology is used to extract stem cells from autologous fat tissue, rather than blood or bone marrow. Removing stem cells through this method can result in a much higher yield of the cells, which in turn can yeild the best possible outcome from your procedure. The autologous fat is removed from the body via a minimally-invasive liposuction procedure under local anesthesia.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
This substance in your blood contains a high concentration of growth factors that stimulate the body’s healing response. When administered to an injured area, the platelets create an environment that can induce healing of the tendons, muscles, ligaments and joints. PRP has been used as a dental and cosmetic therapy since the 1990s and more recently, has shown potential benefit in the medical realm.
Regeneris Boston utilizes these technologies for a variety of indications, including aesthetics, orthopedics and hair restoration (in partnership with NE Hair)
