Medicine changes every day, as well as the technology used to improve and heal the human body. Many imperfections and issues that are cosmetic in nature can be addressed without plastic surgery, thanks to technological advances and modern modalities. At Renu Med Lounge, our team of professionals are excited to offer patients nonsurgical solutions for addressing imperfections of the skin and body. We also provide a variety of regenerative medicine treatments, including stem cell injections.
What are stem cells?
Stem cells are cells harvested from a patient that are known for speeding healing and recovery when utilized in the future. Stem cell therapy is the use of these stem cells as an injectable to provide pain relief, faster healing, or even regeneration of lost hair follicles. This method of treatment eliminates the risk of allergic reaction, as the stem cells are from the patient, and allows for a more natural process to occur. Stem cell injections are used at our practice primarily for hair loss and thinning, and continues to be a popular way for patients to regenerate hair follicles to look and feel their best!
What about PRP?
PRP is another type of regenerative medicine. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is derived from a patient’s blood. The PRP can also be used along with stem cells to stimulate hair growth and thickening for patients who want to restore full, thick hair on the scalp. PRP has also been used for many years and continues to be a popular hair loss treatment.
What else can I do about hair thinning and loss?
In most cases, understanding the cause of the hair loss helps the doctor recommend appropriate treatments to restore it. For example, patients who are experiencing thinning due to high levels of stress may find that changes in their daily routine can stop the thinning and allow for regrowth. Other patients might have thinning and loss due to genetics and may want to combat it with PRP or stem cell injections.
