Regenerative Medicine for Anti-Aging
Regenerative Medicine for Anti-Aging is a new field of medicine with one goal in mind: to heal and restore normal function of aging and damaged tissues and organs.
Regenerative medicine plays an important role in the care continuum. Using human cell and tissue products to support the optimal internal healing environment gives patients and professionals new treatment options that were’nt available just a few years ago.

As a division of Healthcare Associates of Florida we provide a broad spectrum of treatments and therapies to help you rejuvenate your body and maintain a positive overall state of well-being.
MAYO CLINIC: Stem cells: What they are and what they do
Stem cells and derived products offer great promise for new medical treatments.
Generate healthy cells to replace diseased cells (regenerative medicine). Stem cells can be guided into becoming specific cells that can be used to regenerate and repair diseased or damaged tissues in people.
People who might benefit from stem cell therapies include those with spinal cord injuries, type 1 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, stroke, burns, cancer and osteoarthritis.
Stem cells may have the potential to be grown to become new tissue for use in transplant and regenerative medicine. Researchers continue to advance the knowledge on stem cells and their applications in transplant and regenerative medicine.
CLEVELAND CLINIC: What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?
PRP relies on platelets (cell fragments found in blood) to heal and repair injuries. The platelets can come from the person (autologous) or from another person (allogeneic). Platelet products have been used for some time to help people with severely low platelet counts.
Other names for some of these products include platelet-rich growth factors (GFs), platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and platelet concentrates (PCs).
What does platelet-rich plasma (PRP) do?
Different types of PRP products are usually given as injections (shots) to heal and repair injuries . The job of platelets in the body is to help blood clot when there is an injury. The cytokines and growth factors that are in platelets can help repair injuries and encourage healing.
- Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
- Knee osteoarthritis (PRP is being combined with other options to lessen pain, improve function, and possibly help repair cartilage. A certain type of PRP called leukocyte-poor PRP or LP-PRP has been suggested as the most useful for knee osteoarthritis.)
- Sports injuries such as pulled muscles, joint sprains or ligament tears
- Hair loss
