Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is an emerging area of medical care that focuses on replacing or regenerating cells, organs, and tissues to restore normal function. 

With traditional modern medical care, treatments tend to focus on helping you manage symptoms. Regenerative medicine takes this one step further by providing therapies that heal the underlying cause of your symptoms to resolve the condition altogether.

Regenerative medicine may have the potential to improve chronic diseases such as heart disease or Type 1 diabetes. 

Currently, health care providers use the natural healing properties in your own body as a tool for regenerative medicine. The team at Doctors Weight Clinic uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy for regenerative medicine.

Made from a sample of your own blood, PRP contains a high concentration of your body’s platelets. 

How does regenerative medicine work?

Regenerative medicine works by stimulating and accelerating your body’s natural healing process. 

Platelets are tiny cell fragments in your blood that are best known for their blood-clotting abilities. They also contain specialized proteins and growth factors that initiate the healing process. These substances activate the regeneration of new cells and tissues to replace the diseased or damaged tissue.

When directly injected into your diseased or damaged tissue, the components of the PRP support and accelerate your body’s natural healing process. 

What conditions benefit from regenerative medicine?

Many conditions may benefit from regenerative medicine. The team at Doctors Weight Clinic uses PRP therapy for:

Hair-loss treatment

To help those struggling with hair loss, the team injects PRP directly into the scalp. The healing properties increase blood flow to the hair follicle, which extends the growing cycle and the thickness of the hair shaft. It also reactivates dormant hair follicles.

Erectile dysfunction

Poor blood circulation and nerve damage are common causes of erectile dysfunction in men. 

With regenerative medicine, the team at Doctors Weight Clinic injects the healing properties into the head and shaft of the penis to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and nerve endings. 

Vaginal revitalization

Pregnancy, childbirth, and aging affect vaginal health. This may cause tissue laxity, loss of sensation, or vaginal dryness.

With regenerative medicine, the team injects PRP into the vaginal tissue to improve vaginal health and function. It may also help tighten the tissue and alleviate incontinence. 

Wrinkle reduction

Doctors Weight Clinic also uses PRP therapy for wrinkle reduction. When combined with other cosmetic treatments, such as microneedling, the healing properties in the PRP simulate the production of collagen, which improves skin strength and elasticity.
