Regenerative therapy is the newest (and quickly becoming one of the most promising) frontiers in medicine. It has the potential to help heal and even replace tissues within and on the body due to injury, disease, and age. A growing body of evidence has been presented that demonstrates potential for topical injuries. These include wounds which are on or in the skin (also considered topical).
Today we’re going to discuss what topical regenerative therapy looks like, how it has shown to benefit patients, and what you can do to assess if you’re a candidate for this therapy.
How Does Topical Regenerative Therapy Help Wound Healing?
There are two basic functions where regenerative medicine may improve the healing of topical wounds:
- Reduced Inflammation
- Paracrine Effect
What Wounds Or Injuries Can Topical Regenerative Therapy Help With?
regenerative therapy is limited to skin injuries and diseases which include:
- Hair loss (Alopecia Areata)
- Skin blisters (Epidermolysis Bullosa)
- Diabetic cutaneous ulcers
- Abrasion wounds
- Avulsion wounds
- Incision wounds
As you can see, the world is quickly entering a new phase of medicine in which healing is the main priority compared to treatment of symptoms. Regenerative medicine is leading this fight in providing therapies for patients where they can experience regeneration of their skin due to wounds and other trauma.
