Stem Cell Aesthetics

Stem Cell Treatments and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

At Sylvana Institute Med Spa, we have a sophisticated range of treatment options when it comes to aesthetic procedures which means that you have a better chance of meeting your aesthetic goals.

The power of aesthetic enhancement is no better illustrated than the potential of two natural body components, stem cells and platelets.  Stem Cell and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) combined is a revolutionary new therapy that can potentially help regenerate damaged skin.

How Does PRP Work?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a natural way to treat lines and wrinkles, increase volume to the face and rejuvenate the skin by using your body's own platelets. 


The PRP is collected in exactly the same way that blood is taken for a standard blood test.  The blood is spun in a centrifuge, which separates the cells, serum and platelets. The separated PRP containing natural growth factors are injected into facial areas in order to stimulate collagen, tissue recovery and rejuvenation. 

What Are Stem Cells?

Often referred to as "mother cells", stem cells are responsible for the development of all the organs and tissue in the body.  They are also known for their

distinctive regenerative capabilities and their powerful ability to promote tissue repair and healing.  Even though stem cells are being increasingly used in a wide range of medical applications, they have remarkable benefits when used in aesthetics.  

When stem cells are deployed into an environment of damaged tissue, they go to work by inhibiting damaging inflammation and modulating the immune system.  At the same time, these stem cells secrete growth factors, proteins and cytokines that stimulate our own cells to regenerate themselves. 

Why Combine Stem Cells and PRP?

The study of using PRP as a frame for stem cells to grow in has been researched for many years.  Combining stems cells with Platelet Rich Plasma therapy as a means to accelerate tissue regeneration has safely shown significant results in patients, with no serious side effects.
