Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine? 

Regenerative medicine works with your body’s natural healing processes to repair and rebuild tissue and improve cellular function. Regenerative medicine is used widely across medical specialties to address a broad range of concerns, from knee arthritis to bone marrow transplants. Regenerative medicine also offers a natural, nonsurgical option to address cosmetic concerns. 

Because regenerative medicine stimulates new tissue growth, it enhances volume to embellish curves and contours. Regenerative therapies also stimulate the production of new collagen, a protein that gives skin its strength and elasticity. This means that regenerative treatments can tighten and rejuvenate your skin without surgical incisions, laser treatments, or dermal fillers. 

What aesthetic concerns can regenerative medicine address?

Dr. Mullins has extensive training and experience with regenerative medicine. He performs regenerative treatments to provide a variety of cosmetic and anti-aging benefits, such as:

  • Enhance breast volume
  • Lift sagging breasts
  • Plump hollow cheeks
  • Improve sagging facial skin
  • Tissue regeneration (with acoustic wave therapy)

In some cases, Dr. Mullins recommends regenerative treatments in combination with surgical procedures to achieve the most stunning results possible.

Which regenerative treatment options are available?

Dr. Mullins offers an array of regenerative therapies to meet your personal aesthetic goals. Autologous treatments use cells from your own body to enhance healing and cellular regeneration. These include:

PRP therapy

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses growth factors present in your own blood. Platelets are responsible for blood clotting and contribute to healing after injury. PRP harnesses the power of your platelets to improve skin health, tone, texture, volume, and elasticity.

Stem cell therapy

Stem cells can develop into any kind of specialized cell within your body. Stem cells from your own fat tissue can generate healthy new cells to lift sagging structures and add volume to breasts and other contour areas. Stem cells contain exomes, which can trigger cellular renewal in existing cells to make all of the surrounding tissue stronger.

Dr. Mullins also has expertise with non-autologous regenerative medicine treatments, such as acoustic wave therapy. Also known as shockwave therapy, this treatment increases blood flow to help speed recovery and rejuvenate skin and other tissues.
