An Anti-Aging Facility Where Success is in Your Blood
Embracing the “everything in moderation” philosophy, as well as genetics, lifestyle habits, diet, what we drink, sleep and managing stress all play a large role in aging gracefully. There’s no getting around it. They haven’t invented a magic pill yet that allows you to lead a sedentary life of overindulgence and still come out on top—yet!
But would you really want to go that route? For many, the answer would be yes, but there are great rewards to a healthy lifestyle, and now there are a number of ways to mitigate the cumulative damage of aging beyond popping a pill or going under the knife.
At Regenerative Matrix in nearby Merritt Island, there are steps you can take to enhance your health and beauty efforts that don’t require either. It is an anti-aging wellness regenerative center that employs only the best practices to promote healing and tissue regeneration, and their goal is to assist you with aging gracefully without the use of extreme measures.
While they offer a list of services aimed at rejuvenation and well-being, there are three treatments in particular that have shown great success and proved popular among clients.
Platelets live in your blood. They are little fragments of cells that are stocked with growth factors and initiate clotting. When you get a cut, it bleeds, and the platelets are nanomachines that help to stop the bleeding through clotting. The clot is more than just glue to stop the flow of blood out of the damaged vessels. It’s also nature’s advanced biologic scaffold to initiate and support healing. Within that healing matrix are billions of platelets that excrete growth factors. These specialized chemicals “speak” to other cells, telling them what to do and energizing the construction effort.
“We like to tell patients that these growth factors inside platelets act like espresso shots for the cells that are repairing damaged tissue.”
At Regenerative Matrix, their Platelet Lysate Preparation third generation PRP can be concentrated to ultra-high levels, so they call it SCP (Super Concentrated Platelets). PRP works by concentrated platelets slowly releasing growth factors over approximately a week—sort of like a time release version of a pill. PL is very anti-inflammatory and hence can be used more easily around nerves. At this time, Regenerative Matrix is the only PRP clinic in Brevard County using this third generation PRP called Platelet Lysate (PL). They can treat shoulders, neck (C-spine), thoracic spine (mid-back) and lumbar spine (lower back). Also knees, ankles, feet, hips and elbows, as well as hair restoration.
In their experience, PRP is known to slow down or stop completely the progression of arthritis, tendonitis and bursitis. When you compare PRP to steroid injections or surgery, you will find a longer lasting, natural and organic alternative from your own body which will speed up and promote healing with minimal to no downtime that is minimally invasive.
PRP is taken from your blood and applied to the PRP facial and re-injected into the facial, neck and decollete tissue. The PRP utilizes the nutrients and growth factors from a sample of the patient’s own blood and combines them with the benefits of microneedling. A vampire facial for face, neck and decollete will reduce the appearance of fine lines and certain types of scars. With a series of treatments, collagen production is stimulated leading to smoother, younger, softer-looking skin. Regenerative Matrix is also combining the vampire with its Nanofractional Device, the Venus Viva, to remodel skin and take back the hands of time, especially for sun-damaged older skin.
The hydrafacial treatment not only resurfaces your skin to provide cleansing, exfoliation and extraction, but it also simultaneously bathes the newly revealed skin with serums of antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid. Each serum targets specific skin issues, including sun damage, blackheads, whiteheads, enlarged pores, acne, brown spots, uneven skin tone and fine lines and wrinkles from early aging. The hydrafacial treatment improves the quality of your skin, helping to make it healthier, and reveals your true beauty from the inside and out.
Now at the Merritt Island location for two years, Regenerative Matrix and the Beauty Box welcomed as their medical director Dr. Omar Hussamy, an orthopedic surgeon who grew up in the U.K. and then came to the U.S. to study more than 30 years ago. He received his medical degree from the University of Virginia School of Medicine and has been in practice for more than 30 years. The multi-talented doctor speaks multiple languages, including Spanish and Arabic. With his primary offices located in Vero Beach and Melbourne, he’s well-liked, and his patients have given him an overall average rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars. The team at Regenerative Matrix are absolutely thrilled to have him.
The team also take part in regular events interacting with the public. A list of their events can be found on their website monthly, so you can also attend to get more information without making an appointment.
Busy? Yes, but not too busy to help you look and feel your best self ever at any age.
