There is a regenerative revolution underway in all fields of medicine, from stroke recovery to wound healing. Thousands of patients across the country are benefitting from PRP and stem cell therapies to heal sports injuries, improve the health of their joints, reverse the symptoms of arthritis, avoid surgery, and return to their active lives.
Based on their positive experiences with stem cell and platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP), patients have been seeking to use regenerative medicine to look their best naturally. While traditional aesthetic procedures such as Botox and hyaluronic acid fillers can be degenerative and temporary—damaging fragile local microcirculation and requiring frequent retreatments—PRP and adipose/cellular therapies work through your own healing systems to affect long-lasting improvement to skin quality and texture.
PRP involves the injection of concentrated platelets and growth factors—as collected from the patient’s blood during an in-office procedure—into an area of degeneration, injury, or arthritis. The growth factor concentrate signals local progenitor cells to replace the injured area with healthy tissue. For deeper lines and more advanced degeneration, micronized fat grafts and fat-derived stem cells—also harvested from the patient during a gentle in-office mini liposuction technique—can replace traditional fillers for more natural, long-lasting restoration.
In response to patient demand, BOUNDLESS, the regenerative medicine practice of Alexandra R. Bunyak, MD, is offering a new line of regenerative aesthetic services:
– BOUNDLESS True PRP regenerative facial
– BOUNDLESS True PRP regenerative therapy for hair loss
– BOUNDLESS fat grafting and stem cell therapies
Many patients have experienced the power of the practice’s pure, concentrated, personalized PRP in hypercharging natural healing. PRP is known to:
-build, strengthen, and tighten collagen
-regenerate blood vessels
-heal injuries and restore normal tissue structure.
In the skin and subcutaneous tissues, PRP has been shown to:
– increase collagen and elastin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles
– improve the texture of skin, minimizing pores and eliminating discoloration
– restore subcutaneous microcirculation lost with age and traditional filler treatments, reviving the skin’s natural rosy glow
– help to diminish dark circles under eyes
– soften sun damage
– regenerate lost fat, lifting depressions caused by acne scarring and improving age-related skin thinning and fragility
– stimulate hair regrowth in hair loss conditions by encouraging the proliferation and differentiation of stem cells in the region of the hair follicle.
PRP is a non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical, “from you to you” treatment. As such, it avoids drastic changes in one’s appearance as is common with other aesthetic and plastic surgery options. Instead, it works in a more subtle way, gently enhancing the innate health, vitality, and elasticity of one’s skin and stimulating hair growth naturally.
Dr. Bunyak uses her own precision, hand-made PRP preparation techniques and the latest in microneedling and injection technologies to deliver the purest, least inflammatory, and most powerful PRP skin and hair aesthetic procedures available today. For deeper healing and restoration, FDA-compliant fat grafting and cellular therapies help each patient look and feel her best.
