As we get older, the body deteriorates and it becomes harder and harder to hide. The aging process shows in our appearance and mental and physical fortitude. Almost from the beginning of time, man has searched for that magic elixir fountain of youth. Anything that will slow the hands of time to combat the aging process is generally welcome but unfortunately there are scarcely few methods, treatments or modalities that actually accomplish this. At Solutions, we practice several! Keep reading to learn more here….
Once the body starts to degenerate, it is very difficult to change this process… and only until regenerative medicine has science really shown any progress. Osteoarthritis for example, is when the connective tissue around and inside your joints deteriorate. This happens from wear and tear over the years, however stem cell injections seem to be the only thing that encourages replacement of the damaged cells with new tissue.
Other modalities such as enhanced Hyaluronic Acid injections can also help slow the degenerative process. While this type of injection does not help the body grow new tissue, it does help reduce the thinning of the joint temporarily and so this helps slow the accumulation of damage from a bone on bone condition. Off-loading knee braces help in a similar manner and work very well in combination with HA or stem cell injections for the knees.
At Solutions, we also use regenerative medicine in the form of PRP (platelet rich plasma) to help patients re-establish new collagen and vascular growth in the top layers of the facial skin. These procedures are called Vampire Facials® or Vampire Facelifts®. The result of the new collagen/blood vessel growth is improved texture and tone of the skin and reduced wrinkles for a younger, healthier appearance.
We also practice regenerative medicine procedures that help patients improve other areas of their life including the P-Shot for men and O-Shot for women. These injections also use the patient’s plasma and help with incontinence issues and restore sensitivity to the genitals, improving libido and sex life. Finally, many of our patients are also thriving with natural bio-identical hormones we offer. For questions about any of these procedures or to schedule, contact us.
