Repair & Regenerate By Harnessing the Healing Powers of Your Own Body

Since patients seeking aesthetic treatments are usually physically active and may suffer from either acute musculoskeletal injuries or chronic problems like arthritis, we offer regenerative therapies including growth factor and PRP (platelet rich plasma) treatments.

Regenerative medicine, which uses the body’s healing processes to repair and replace multiple types of tissues, is the most exciting area in medicine today and is revolutionizing healthcare.

Concentrated substances from your blood and/or fat can heal acute injuries, strengthen loose ligaments, treat tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, arthritis, dry eyes, and other medical conditions without surgery or medications.  They also can enhance the results of esthetic treatments. 

Regenerative Musculoskeletal Treatments

Stem Cells And Their Growth Factors

Stem cells are cells that can transform into multiple types of tissue and they release multiple types of growth and healing factors in the form of exosomes that help reduce inflammation, enhance immune function, and replace damaged tissue.

They're attracted to areas of injury and disease where they can transform into multiple cell and tissue types—including bone, cartilage, blood vessels, muscles, nerves, and skin. Usually, stem cells are responsible for replacing dying cells and regenerating damaged tissue but treatments using stem cells have produced improvement in multiple medical conditions, including arthritis, spinal cord injuries, cardiovascular disease, neurological problems, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases, to name just a few. 

You may not have heard much about stem cell treatments because since they're produced by your body and not by a pharmaceutical company, so they can't be patented and marketed. Most people are familiar with bone marrow transplants, a form of stem cell treatment used for over 40 years. Adipose tissue has at least as many stem cells as bone marrow and even more than marrow after the age of 50. Since adipose is relatively abundant in most people, it's an excellent source to use in regenerative treatments.  

In musculoskeletal conditions, injected stem cells and growth factors have been shown to promote the healing of injured joints, stimulate cartilage growth and ligament strength, and decrease the pain from chronic arthritis.

The procedure for fat-derived healing factor therapy involves obtaining a few ounces of fat by mini-liposuction under local anesthetic, separating the healing factors from the fat, and then injecting these into the affected areas. Usually, only one treatment is needed.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP, isolated from the blood, decreases inflammation but also contains growth factors, and is effective in treating less chronic musculoskeletal problems like sprains, tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis, A PRP treatment is quick, relatively painless, and requires no post-procedure care or time off from daily events. 

The fee for a musculoskeletal PRP treatment at Skinspirations is $499 and $2,000 for an adipose-derived stem cell injection.
