ActiJoint has expanded regenerative treatment to more than just medical care. Treatments such as PRP and Stem Cell therapy can rejuvenate, restore, and regenerate cells and tissue in a specific, targeted area of your body.  By harnessing the human body’s natural healing properties, you can revitalize, tone-up and heal skin and connective tissue. We can address wrinkles, scars, hair loss, and erectile dysfunction.

How does PRP work for wrinkles and scars?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Face-Lift Treatment is a non-surgical face-lift for rejuvenating the skin. With this procedure, you receive injections of plasma from your own blood. The plasma creates a lush and youthful glow to your skin without the need for incisions and potential scars.

When injected into the skin, PRP grows new collagen, regenerates tissue, and thus acts to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creates smoother skin texture and tone. Recent studies show that PRP can also soften sun damage, scars, and aging skin issues. Compared to other products, PRP treatment gives a more natural appearance and lasts longer. In summary, PRP is more effective, more reliable, and more affordable (long term) than currently available topicals or other injectables.

How does it work for Hair loss?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for the Scalp is a treatment recently brought to the United States. With this treatment, Dr. Riggs is seeing exciting results for hair restoration. The results are much more impressive than any other non-surgical treatment and compares with hair transplant in effectiveness–although much less expensive. In this procedure, the patient’s blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets to a specific concentration effective for hair growth. The platelets are then injected directly into the scalp. The growth factors in the PRP stimulate blood vessel growth and recruit Stem Cells to initiate and maintain the growing cycle of the hair follicles. PRP not only produces an increased number (16% per treatment) of hairs–it helps individual hairs become stronger and healthier. This has been very effective for Dr. Riggs’ patients.

To get the most reliable results, patients plan on three treatments once monthly. Results will start to show in about 2-6 months and will last for up to 5 years. Further treatments can be performed if needed.

How does PRP work for erectile dysfunction (ED)?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) contains many growth factors and healing factors. Once injected into the corpus carvernosum, PRP releases these factors and recruits Stem Cells to come into the local environment. PRP is scaffolding to support the recruited Stem Cells to grow and regenerate. The resulting benefits typically include tissue growth, the formation of new blood vessels, and improved circulation capacity within the penis. Clinically, this equates to stronger erections, increased sensation with more pleasure and enhanced sexual performance. PRP treatment will work with primary ED as well as ED secondary to an enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, the after-effects of surgery, drug side effects and other conditions such as diabetes.

This medical breakthrough is helping thousands of men today. Dr. Riggs’ patients are taking advantage of this new procedure which offers a natural solution to erectile dysfunction without the side effects or hassle of oral medications. PRP treatment is recognized by the FDA and is considered to be a very effective treatment option.
