Aletheia Cell Therapy (PRP), peptide and hormone therapy are minimally invasive treatments designed to promote healing and wellness; however, they have distinct differences:
Aletheia offers 2 types of regenerative cell therapy for our patients to help speed up your body's healing process: Joint and Systemic. Each therapy is specifically designed to promote healing and stimulate new cell production in the body.
The process involves drawing a sample of blood, separating the plasma, then concentrating and activating the platelets that support healing and growth. Then the sample is reintroduced into the joint or into the blood system.
Peptide therapy uses peptides –– short chains of amino acids –– to stimulate healing at the cellular level. Like PRP, peptide therapy is administered with injections. The Aletheia Integrative team uses peptide therapy to promote healing, encourage weight loss, and assist in anti-aging.
Hormone therapy uses synthetic (man-made) hormones to restore hormone balance. You might benefit from this type of treatment if you’re going through menopause or experiencing symptoms of low testosterone.
The Aletheia Integrative team uses cell therapy to treat various medical issues, including:
Cell Therapy (PRP) can help speed up your recovery after orthopedic surgery. It can also be used to encourage hair growth if you have male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia).
Cell therapy is an outpatient procedure that averages 60-120 minutes.
Your blood sample will be drawn and placed into a centrifuge –– a machine that separates your platelets from the rest of your blood.
Once the platelet-rich solution is ready, your provider injects it into specific areas of your body, like an arthritic knee or a damaged tendon or intravenously. The PRP solution can amplify the natural growth factors found in our blood to begin healing at the cellular level.
The side effects of PRP are limited and reduced because the injection uses substances from your own body. After treatment, it’s normal to experience mild bruising and redness at the injection sites, but these symptoms should improve within a day or two. Systemic treatments may result in longer recovery, please discuss with the Aletheia provider. After each session, avoid strenuous activity for at least 24 hours and follow the team’s recovery instructions.
