PRP Hair Restoration

Affordable Way For You To Improve Your Hair Density...

PRP Hair Restoration (PRP) Hair Rejuvenation

Hair loss can be an embarrassing issue. Male and female pattern hair loss is a genetic problem that can leave you feeling helpless. Options, like prescription drugs, are often partially effective and carry the potential for unwanted side effects. Surgical hair restoration can be expensive and does not treat the underlying medical problems.

Now there is an affordable way for you to improve your hair density without surgery of harmful side effects. 

PRP Skin Rejuvenation

Helps Repair Damaged or Injured Tissues...

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Skin Rejuvenation

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Skin Rejuvenation Treatment is an advanced and ground-breaking anti-aging treatment physicians use to help repair damaged or injured tissues in the body. This minimally invasive procedure helps initiate the regenerative process by utilizing the growth factors that platelets are known to contain. PRP Skin Rejuvenation Treatment is autologous, meaning it is derived from the patient, therefore reducing the risk of rejection or allergic reaction.

Stem Cell Treatment

Stem cell therapy is on the leading edge of the emerging field known as regenerative medicine. Using sophisticated biogenics (products created from your own body), instead of relying on more traditional treatments such as steroids, NSAIDs (non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs), surgery, and other pharmaceuticals (which can cause unwanted side effects), we focus on harnessing the natural healing power of the stem cells retrieved from your own body.

Stem cell procedures may be beneficial for the potential management of symptoms associated with multiple conditions such as joint pain, osteoarthritis, erectile dysfunction (ED), renal disease, auto-immune conditions, neurological disorders, cellular rejuvenation, autism, and other conditions. While there is much research required, the possibilities are excellent.
 
Stem cells are harvested from fat using an advanced mini-lipoharvesting process that is performed while the patient is under a local anesthetic. We employ a tiny (2 mm) puncture to administer the anesthetic. Patients can save a portion of the fat for future stem cell harvests by informing the surgeon of their desire to retain excess fat supplies. The procedure itself is very brief; patients usually report only minimal discomfort and disruption to normal activities is also minimal.
 
The Retreat is proud to be the exclusive provider of adipose derived autologous (your own cells) stem cell treatments in the Rockwall area.  A myriad of conditions can be addressed and consults for treatment consideration are always complimentary.
 

As we age, our faces and bodies can begin to feel the effects of daily wear and tear. Sun and wind exposure, the effects of gravity, and a loss of collagen can all combine to make you appear older, or more tired. If you are starting to notice more wrinkles on your face, drooping jowls and other effects of aging, regenerative cell therapy may be able to help restore what time has taken away.

The use of stem cells and PRP during a facelift or other facial aesthetic procedures do not alter the underlying structure of your face. Instead, they work at a cellular level, providing a way to firm up flaccid areas by replacing lost volume and missing collagen. This may restore the natural fat pads that fill and firm your face to create a more youthful appearance. Get the youthful look you have always wanted at a fraction of the cost and none of the downtime associated with a traditional facelift.

These procedures may be right for you if you have:

Noticeable laugh lines

  • Jowls or a flabby jawline
  • Bags under your eyes
  • Deep creases and wrinkles

Stem cell therapy also shows potential to address hair loss conditions and could be used as an augment to PRP and hair transplants.

Stem Cells FAQs

Where do Stem Cells Come From?

There are two basic kinds of stem cells: embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells. As the name implies, embryonic stem cells come from embryos. These kinds of cells are known as pluri-potential, meaning that they can become anything required to create a human body. Embryonic stem cells are taken from unwanted embryos, and as such, are highly controversial. Embryonic stem cell use is highly regulated and has also been associated with certain kinds of tumor formation.

Adult stem cells, on the other hand, come from adults. Adult stem cells are harder to isolate, but still retain many (but not all) of their undifferentiated properties, allowing them to become nerve, skin, bone, cartilage and other tissues as needed, depending on the specific type of tissue they are recovered from. Bone marrow adult stem cells (mesenchymal stem cells), for instance, come from the mesodermal sections of the human body and can form into cartilage and bone.

Evidence suggests that they are also capable of differentiating into other tissues like connective tissues (ligaments, muscle, tendons), blood vessels, fatty tissues, nerve and blood vessels. Bone marrow stem cells are not as prevalent in the body and usually need to be cultured (encouraged to multiply in the lab) so that there are enough to work with.

Fortunately, human fat cells also have mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) which can be more easily harvested and separated from fat cells for use. Because the ratio of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) is over a thousand times greater in fat cells than bone marrow, these usually do not need to be cultured and can be obtained from fatty deposits in the patient’s body.

What are adipose stem cells?

Adipose stem cells are a type of mesenchymal, or adult stem cell, which, unlike embryonic stem cells, are derived from the mesodermal section of an adult. Adult stem cells possess the ability to differentiate into bone as well as cartilage, and it is believed that these cells can also be used to create blood vessels, connective tissue, fat, and nerve tissue. Due to this level of versatility, adult stem cells can be utilized in the treatment of a wide range of medical conditions associated with disease or degenerative illness.

Adult stem cells can be derived from bone marrow as well as adipose (fat) tissue, with adipose stem cells being the adult stem cells derived from the latter mesodermal element. Adipose and bone marrow stem cells are equally versatile, but bone marrow stem cells must be cultured and multiplied to ensure the availability of the appropriate number of stem cells necessary for the purpose of the treatment in question.

Adipose stem cells, on the other hand, do not usually require the culturing process necessitated by the relatively low number of stem cells derived from bone marrow. Adipose stem cells are available in large numbers in adipose tissue, and most adults possess fat supplies that are more than adequate for the purpose of treatment involving the use of stem cells.

Adult stem cells, including both adipose stem cells and bone marrow stem cells, are considered “progenitor cells,” which lie dormant until injured or otherwise damaged tissue necessitates the healing processes performed by stem cells.

How many patients have been treated with stem cells?

With the ongoing advances in regenerative medicine, the number of patients benefiting from stem cell therapies continues to grow by the day. That being said, a retrospective observational study published in Lancet Haematology stated that by the end of 2012, well over 1 million patients had undergone stem cell therapy involving the use of adult stem cells. Obviously, in the time that has passed since that data was collected, many more patients have enjoyed successful outcomes after undergoing an adipose-derived stem cell therapy.

It’s also worth noting that as more and more patients turn to regenerative medicine and stem cell therapy, in particular, doctors and researchers remain dedicated to the continued study of adult stem cells. According to data made available by the US National Library of Health (via the National Institute of Health website), there are nearly 3,300 interventional studies involving adult stem cells currently underway.
