If you’ve been following our blog lately, you’ve probably read about the regenerative properties that stem cell therapy offers, as well as how it can be used to treat and repair joints. There are a variety of ways that stem cell therapy can be used to improve your overall health — both in regenerative medicine as well as in medical spas.
Today, we are going to go over the different potential applications for stem cell therapy and how this treatment can help improve different health conditions. If you have any of the listed ailments, contact Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa in Peoria to schedule your consultation to find out if any of our stem cell therapy treatments could help you.
Joint & Tissue Repair
One of the biggest contributions that regenerative medicine has made to the medical field is how it’s treating damaged or degenerating joints. Given the unique characteristics of stem cells, they have the ability to become specialized cells and replace tissue that has been damaged.
This means that, once administered to an arthritic or damaged joint, the stem cells can rejuvenate tendon and ligament cells. This helps to reduce inflammation and pain from bone joints rubbing against each other. Stem cell therapy is a great option for those who experience joint pain from osteoarthritis, repetitive use, or from an injury.

Stem cell therapy is also being used as a hair restoration treatment for men and women. Male-pattern and female-pattern baldness, also referred to as alopecia areata, can be treated using PRP injections and ThermaDome® laser therapy. This treatment is great compared to other types of hair restoration procedures because it’s minimally invasive and a natural solution for hair loss.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections are administered to the scalp to stimulate dormant hair follicles to start growing again. PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood and contains growth factors and proteins that aid in cell regeneration.
Hair loss isn’t the only part of the aging process that men don’t look forward to — sexual health is also something that can be affected as men age. A couple of conditions that can take their toll on a man’s health and relationships are Peyronie’s Disease and Erectile Dysfunction.
Stem cell therapy offers a solution for men’s sexual health. Through the use of PRP injections (commonly referred to as the P-shot), damaged tissues are stimulated to regenerate and improve sexual health and function in men. This type of regenerative medicine has the potential to replace medication with harmful side effects, as well as invasive surgeries.
Stem cell therapy offers a way to regenerate cells naturally, and this includes skin cells. At Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa, we offer a special type of facial that helps stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate your skin for a more radiant, healthy appearance.
In a two-step procedure, patients will go through a session of microneedling and will then have a PRP/PRF masque applied to their face. The microneedling allows the platelet-rich plasma and platelet-rich fibrin to penetrate deeper into the skin for more effective results.
Microneedling and PRP/PRF facials can help improve elasticity and fullness of skin, as well as reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Microneedling and PRP/PRF facials are also a great way to reduce the appearance of scars. Whether scarring is from acne marks, a skin condition, or an accident, microneedling can help break up scar tissue while the PRP helps the skin regenerate healthy cells.
Another stem cell treatment option for scarring is via injection. This method of treatment is best for bodily scars. The PRP serum is administered at the site of the scar to help the skin regenerate cells in that specific location.
Revitalize Your Life
Whether you’re experiencing joint pain, hair loss, a sexual health condition, aging skin, or scarring, regenerative medicine and stem cell therapy may be able to help. Compared to other treatments, it’s minimally invasive and offers results that are natural because the different procedures use your body’s natural ability to heal itself to regenerate cells and rejuvenate skin.
