What is it?

Regenerative medicine is the process of stimulating, regenerating, or replacing tissues that are considered damaged, diseased, or have decreased function. The natural aging process can have detrimental effects, especially on skin. Anti-aging regenerative medicine, utilizes either your own growth factors or a medically advanced growth hormone product in combination with a micro-needing device, to stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production. This process helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while rejuvenating the skin and regenerating your skins natural elasticity. Based on your needs, goals, and concerns, our doctor can determine the best skin care option for your skin. Not only can we discuss specific treatment options, but we can develop a personalized skin care routine as well.
