Regenerative medicine utilizes your body’s own abilities to heal itself, so you can heal from the inside out.
At Bergen Aesthetics, Heripsime Ohanian, PhD, MD, FACOG, specializes in regenerative medicine therapies to rejuvenate the health of your skin and revitalize its appearance. The regenerative therapies Dr. Ohanian uses offer many benefits over more invasive — and sometimes less effective — treatments.
What to know about regenerative medicine
The regenerative medicine therapies available at Bergen Aesthetics use platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a substance found naturally in your blood. PRP contains growth factors that stimulate your body to produce new, healthy cells to replace those damaged by injury or disease.
As new cells grow, your skin appears smoother and more evenly textured. Injections of PRP also trigger the growth of new collagen and elastin, two essential skin proteins. The additional proteins help plump up your skin and can fill in areas of your face where you have recessed scars or where you’ve lost volume due to aging.
Dr. Ohanian injects precise amounts of PRP taken from your own body into specific areas of your face and other areas of your body. The final results reveal skin that looks younger and feels healthier.
The many benefits of regenerative medicine
Regenerative medicine offers many benefits to those who want to enhance the aesthetics of their skin but aren’t ready for invasive treatments.
The regenerative medicine therapies we offer at Bergen Aesthetics offer benefits like:
Injections of PRP offer a more holistic approach to aesthetic care. The PRP Dr. Ohanian uses during your treatment comes from your own blood.
No synthetic materials are used in the injections. We prepare your blood in a centrifuge that quickly spins blood materials to achieve a high concentration of PRP, which Dr. Ohanian injects into your skin.
Minimal risk for complications
Because PRP comes from your own body, there are fewer risks for complications. Your body is able to recognize your own blood materials, so you’re less likely to experience an allergic or negative reaction to treatment.
Fast treatment times
Regenerative medicine injections only take a few minutes to complete. Dr. Ohanian customizes a treatment plan based on your personal aesthetic goals to optimize your results.
We ensure you’re comfortable throughout the procedure, and many people are able to return to work and their usual activities without any downtime.
Since PRP stimulates the growth of new, healthy skin cells, collagen, and elastin, you can expect your results to be long-lasting.
As long as you follow a skin-friendly diet, get daily exercise, and take good care of your skin, your results can last for months or years before you need additional injections.
Unlike some fillers and other aesthetic treatments, injections of PRP provide results that look completely natural — because they truly are.
As new cells grow, you should notice a gradual improvement in the texture and tone of your skin. Over time, your skin will appear fresher, more vibrant, and always natural-looking.
