Stem cells live in all humans, acting as the repairmen of the body. However, as we age, we sometimes can’t get enough of these critical repair cells to an injured area.
By harvesting cells from areas known to be rich in mesenchymal stem cells, and then concentrating those cells in a lab before re-injecting them into the area in need of repair, stem cell platelet-rich plasma therapy helps solve this problem by amplifying the body’s natural repair process.
This non-surgical procedure is typically for people suffering from moderate to severe joint or bone pain due to injury and other conditions. However, Dr. O’Brien uses stem cell platelet-rich plasma therapy in conjunction with facelifts and facial fat grafting. He has found that harvesting stem cells and platelet-rich plasma in conjunction with harvesting fat used to restore facial contours, leads to less rejection and faster healing for the patient.
