Well, what is Stem Cell Therapy?
At its simplest explanation, Stem Cell Therapy (PRP or platelet rich plasma), is platelet rich plasma from a person’s own blood sample, that is injected back into the person to stimulate the regrowth of dwindling or damaged cells in targeted areas. Treatment areas can include but are not limited to;
the scalp or hair line for hair regrowth
the back of the hands
joints or tendons for repair
collagen restoration in and around the face and neck via injection or microneedling
Stem Cell Therapy, or PRP/PRFM, is a solution of your own plasma and platelets where the platelet concentration is higher than whole blood (2-3x more). This solution is collected via a blood draw and placed into a small vacuum collection tube and spun until the plasma and platelets have separated from the red and white blood cells. The liquid is then injected back into the same patient in the desired area(s) of treatment.
Why get it? What does it do?
Platelet rich plasma is packed with many growth factors and stem cells (hence the name stem cell therapy) which mimic the cells they are injected into and around, which increases the number of the cells stimulating cellular restoration, growth, and repair to the targeted tissues and increases microcirculation.
These aesthetic treatments aim at growing volume and elasticity in the skin where injected. Whether it be the neck, back of the hands, tear troughs, smoker lines, or the entire face, we’re giving your cells a much needed boost of growth factors.
Stem Cell Therapy may be a great alternative to HA Filler for those that may want to grow their own volume, not inject it!!
What is Stem Cell Therapy (PRP/PRFM) used for?
Increased collagen and elastin production
Development of new blood vessels
Adds volume and tightens sagging skin
Improved skin texture and rejuvenation
Improves overall complexion and diminishes acne scarring
What to Expect:
Desired results usually require multiple treatment sessions, up to as many as 6 for some patients.
3 treatments are required when first initiating treatment at Wellness for Life
Each treatment must be no sooner than 4 weeks from the last
After desired results are reached, maintenance treatment boosts are needed every 4-6 months.
Results can begin to appear as early as 7 days and take up to approximately 8 weeks.
Results last approximately 6-12 months, which is why maintenance treatments will be necessary.
**Before coming in for a consultation please take into consideration the following guidelines. PRFM/PRP requires your participation if you want to see results and get your money’s worth. We require a minimum of 3 treatments purchased when you first begin PRP/PRFM, results will not be achieved with fewer. You can buy as many bundles of 3 as you would like, and once the desired result is achieved, you can buy individual treatments 1-3 times per year for maintenance. After receiving treatments, you must refrain from Alcohol and Smoking tobacco for the following 10-14 days!! Platelets are pretty fragile and have short life spans, like a week, if the environment in which you give them to do their job is a toxic one, the results will not come. Eating clean and avoiding these harmful chemicals are how you can take care of your treatments and protect your investment.
