Stem Cell Injection Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between stem cell therapy and PRP?
While PRP is a treatment performed by injection of serum obtained from blood, stem cells are obtained by separating them from adipose tissues. PRP ensures that new stem cells come to the application area and increase the efficiency of these stem cells. While PRP protects healthy skin tissue, it accelerates the healing and repair of the skin. Stem cell therapy, on the other hand, provides the formation of new and healthy cells and, in this way, the healing and regeneration of skin tissue. In certain cases, more satisfactory results can be obtained by performing stem cell and PRP treatments simultaneously.
How many sessions of stem cell injection are applied?
The effects of stem cell injection appear from the first application. In this respect, it has a faster mechanism of action than other similar applications. The effect of the application continues for several years. The frequency of the application is determined by the patient’s expectations, needs and the appropriate opinion of the physician.
