Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

The term regenerative medicine refers to any medical procedure that uses living and functional tissue that doctors then use to repair, restore, or regenerate tissue. Doctors can use regenerative medicine to do anything, from making a tissue graft for heart bypass surgery to rejuvenating the skin.

At Mango Medical, the team offers regenerative treatments including PRP therapy and stem cell therapy.

What is PRP?

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a solution that technicians make in a lab using your blood, which is made up of liquid plasma, white cells, red cells, and platelets. Platelets contain growth factors, which speed up healing by telling your stem cells to travel over and rebuild.

To get platelet-rich plasma, your Mango Medical physician draws a small amount of your blood. Next, they extract the platelets and concentrate them by spinning them in a centrifuge. PRP contains five to 10 times the concentration of platelets as regular blood.

With PRP, your Mango Medical physician can speed up healing after an injury or surgery, stimulate hair growth, improve circulation, and treat a number of skin conditions, including:

  • Rough texture
  • Poor complexion
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • The appearance of scars
  • Loose skin

Depending on the area, your doctor administers PRP via injection or microneedling.

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy uses stem cells to repair diseased, poorly functioning, and damaged tissue. Stem cells are like clay that you can mold into any shape and function.

The body uses stem cells to create all of the body’s other cells. Before offering them to you for therapy, doctors collect donor stem cells or your own stem cells and manipulate them into specialized cells.

When you come into Mango Medical for stem cell therapy, your physician injects specialized stem cells into the area of your body that requires healing.
