Regenerative Medicine Q&A
What is regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine uses biological substances to reduce signs of aging and accelerate healing naturally. Regenerative medicine helps you avoid invasive procedures or pain medication with addictive properties. It’s useful for improved aesthetics and musculoskeletal function after sports injuries.
What are the different types of regenerative medicine?
Examples of regenerative medicine treatments available at European Wellness Cosmedical include:
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma found in the blood stimulates your body’s natural healing ability and collagen production. Your European Wellness Cosmedical provider can inject PRP into the site of a sports injury to optimize healing and relieve pain, or into your face as a natural filler to reduce signs of aging. They might combine PRP with Juvéderm® or other filler products.
Stem cells come from certain parts of your body, such as bone marrow and fat tissue, or donated tissues from a lab. Because stem cells can regenerate into other types of cells in your body, they help you heal or stimulate new cell growth naturally.
Exosomes are tiny vesicles derived from human mesenchymal stem cells, containing growth factors that stimulate your body’s healing capability. They repair, heal, and reconstruct damaged tissues or reduce inflammation.
What are the benefits of regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a simple, fast procedure without pain, surgery, or downtime.
What happens during treatment?
What to expect during regenerative medicine treatment at European Wellness Cosmedical depends on the procedure you choose.
With PRP, your provider takes a blood sample from your arm and places it in a centrifuge to isolate platelet-rich plasma from the rest of your blood. They inject it into areas of injury, chronic pain, wrinkles, skin laxity, loss of volume, or other signs of aging.
Your provider takes stem cells from other parts of your body, or donated stem cells or exosomes from a lab, and injects them into problem areas. Your aesthetic specialist might apply PRP, stem cells, or exosomes to your skin through microneedling. This process creates controlled injury to multiple skin layers and boosts collagen production with tiny needles.
What should I expect after the procedure?
After a regenerative medicine treatment at European Wellness Cosmedical, there’s no downtime so you can resume normal activities right away. You may notice temporary redness or swelling at the treatment site. Your provider often recommends a series of treatments or periodic maintenance injections to give you the best outcome.
