Many modalities of modern medicine work to treat symptoms of disease and aging instead of addressing the root causes. However, that might not be the most effective strategy. At Zormeier Cosmetic Surgery & Longevity Center in Noblesville, IN, Shelbyville, IN, Danville, IL, Healdsburg, CA, and Ukiah, CA, we offer several regenerative medicine treatment options that encourage your body to actively heal itself.
What Can Regenerative Medicine Be Used For?
Whether you want to rejuvenate your skin or address a more serious health condition, regenerative medicine may offer the results you are looking for. Some treatments effectively stimulate collagen production to produce smoother, younger-looking skin. Others can be used to fix cellular and molecular deficiencies that produce medical conditions. A few that can be treated include:
- Cartilage damage
- Erectile dysfunction
- Hair loss
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Traumatic brain injury
What Is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a field of study that examines ways to harnesses the body’s natural ability to heal itself. This is a process referred to as regeneration, where tissue can repair and regrow itself. Using the body’s own cells, healing can be accelerated, amplified, and directed toward a specific desired result.
What Are Some Common Regenerative Medicine Treatments?
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells have the ability to develop into any other type of cell in the body. That makes them uniquely suited for regenerative medicine. In a treatment session, stem cells will be extracted and then reintroduced to the treatment site. This allows them to adapt to the exact needs of your injury or disorder, often resolving most, if not all, symptoms.
There is a lot of concern about the ethical implications of stem cell therapy. Those are largely centered around procedures that use fetal or cord blood stem cells. However, at Zormeier Cosmetic Surgery & Longevity Center, we only use stem cells isolated from your own adipose (fat) tissue.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
During a PRP therapy session, a small amount of your blood will be drawn. The plasma will be isolated and enhanced and then reintroduced to your body. It is placed directly into the treatment area. This stimulates healing processes at the site.
