Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your blood contains several growth factors that stimulate your stem cells. Stem cells are in every organ and tissue in your body. There purpose is to repair and improve the function and health of the tissues they affect. Modern cosmetic procedures often inject PRP to stimulate the growth of stem cells and thereby, the appearance and functions of your collagen, skin, hair and reductions of stretch marks, wrinkles, and blemishes.
Stem cell therapy harnesses the body’s powerful repair mechanism by injecting stem cells into areas of cellular deficiency. By doing this, the stem cells stimulate the repair of injured tissue.
For patients who require advanced care, PRP combined with stem cell therapy greatly accelerates tissue growth and repair. Accelerated growth occurs when the platelets aid the stem cells; they help determine what type of cell the stem cells need to be and guide stem cells to the specific area of the body requiring regeneration.
The Wellness & Aesthetics Medical Center uses stem cell therapy in conjunction with PRP therapy for the following cosmetic procedures:
Most often, stem cell therapy is recommended for patients with more advanced conditions. However, not every patient will require both therapies; each patient will receive a comprehensive exam to determine the best and most effective treatment option.

These conditions are referred to an offshore clinic. They can help to prevent and ease symptoms of many chronic diseases.
