If you live in Palm Coast and are interested in trying regenerative medicine to improve your health and wellness, Anti-Aging & Regenerative Associates has everything you need. We apply regenerative medical techniques to relieve our clients’ pain and help them heal while also addressing their overall health. One of the services we offer in Palm Coast is PRP stem cell therapy, which involves using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells to address conditions like joint pain and hair loss. If you are interested in learning more, we are happy to provide more information during a free consultation.
PRP and Stem Cell Therapy Are Forms of Regenerative Medicine
Regenerative medicine seeks to restore damaged tissues in an effort to reduce pain and repair functionality in different areas of the body. PRP and stem cell therapy are two growing technologies in this field that our team uses to promote our clients’ healing and well-being.
While we discuss and utilize them together, these therapeutic tools have several key differences, including where we get them and how they can serve your health goals.
PRP Focuses on Healing and Reducing Inflammation
PRP gets extracted from the blood. As discussed in the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, the concentration of platelets found in plasma is a major component in the wound-healing and cell regrowth process. It enables the blood to clot effectively when an injury occurs and nurtures the healthy adult cells to repair themselves.

Stem Cells Focus on Replacing Damaged Tissues
Stem cells are immature cells that we extract from body tissues—such as bone marrow—before they have a chance to develop specialized functions. As a result, they can grow into different cell types depending on where we place them in the body. Stem cells take on the properties of the cells around them in order to encourage new growth. This allows them to replace damaged or diseased cells that can no longer function.
The Benefits of Combining PRP and Stem Cell Therapy
Our team at Anti-Aging & Regenerative Associates encourages the use of stem cell and PRP therapy together for a comprehensive approach to healing—these therapies complement each other well. Stem cells replace those that are no longer able to heal themselves even with the help of PRP. Meanwhile, PRP encourages functional cells to heal and grow with the newly introduced stem cells.
This can help us to do the following for our clients:
- Reduce inflammation
- Promote wound healing
- Treat chronic pain
The Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology also points out that these therapies are most often used to treat sports injuries. However, our team utilizes PRP stem cell therapy for a variety of conditions our clients are facing.

What Does PRP Stem Cell Therapy Treat?
Our clients seek regenerative therapy to treat many different ailments and conditions, including:
- Chronic muscle and joint pain
- Hair loss
- Sexual health issues, such as erectile dysfunction
If you are experiencing any of these or similar health issues, you may benefit from PRP stem cell therapy.
What to Expect During and after Your Session
The first time you visit our office in Palm Coast area, we will conduct a consultation to discuss your medical history, health goals, and whether PRP stem cell therapy is the right option for you.
If you decide to move forward with this treatment, the process involves the following:
- Plasma extraction: During this phase, we will take a sample of your blood. Then, using a centrifuge machine, we will extract the plasma from the blood sample.
- Stem cell extraction: This phase involves taking a sample of your tissue through liposuction to extract stem cells.
- Combining the samples: Once we have samples of your plasma and stem cells, we will combine them into a syringe for use in your session.
- Injection: The final phase involves injecting the plasma and cells into the area of concern, such as your joint or scalp.
Once the session is complete, you may experience some aching and soreness at the injection site. While our team will go over all of this information during your consultation, we’ve answered some of our most common questions about PRP stem cell therapy below.
How Long Will it Take to See Results?
Depending on the outcome you are looking for and where we injected the plasma and stem cells, it can take several weeks to see results. Moreover, you may require multiple sessions over the course of that period. For example, a study in the medical journal Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy found that multiple injections were more effective for conditions like joint pain.
