Medical advancements such as regenerative medicine and technological improvements have been increasing the average lifespan of people throughout the world. Since the population is living longer, there is a growing number of people that have reached an advanced age.
Consequently, medical science is struggling to keep up with the demand for treating age-related diseases. In most cases, patients are unable to find solutions to their declining health, and doctors merely give drugs that can treat their symptoms and alleviate their pain.
One possible approach that could turn the tide is a relatively new field of medicine called “regenerative medicine.” As the name suggests, this type of medicine involves re-growing tissues of the body that it could not normally replace on its own.
What Is Regenerative Medicine?
It could be said that regenerative medicine is not new because organ transplants have been done for many decades, but there are new advancements that redefine what this medical field has to offer. There are currently three areas that are being developed in regenerative medicine:
- Artificial organs and medical devices
- Tissue regeneration
- Stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma
We offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to treat sexual issues, vaginal discomfort, fine lines and wrinkles, and sagging breasts. PRP is a component of your own blood that is spun in a centrifuge until the plasma is separated from the other elements. It is then injected into the trouble areas of your body, whether that’s the face, breasts, vagina, or penis.
Almost anyone can benefit from PRP treatments at Falcone Center in Bala Cynwyd, PA. We also have locations in Maple Shade and Lambertville, NJ. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
