Treatment Specific Questions

What is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), and how do you make it?
Blood has both liquid and solid parts. The liquid is called “plasma.” The solids are red and white blood cells and platelets. Platelets contain proteins called “growth factors” which are hormone-like molecules that help control the process of tissue repair and exert a powerful influence on wound healing. During treatment, your own blood is drawn and centrifuged to separate the blood cells from the plasma, platelets and growth factors. This platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then re-injected into your injured area so that the growth factors can stimulate healing to that specific area of your body.
If I use testosterone therapy as a woman, will I begin to grow hair in unwanted places or have other similar side effects?
Testosterone is a naturally-occurring hormone in both men and women and is necessary to maintain proper function of the body. Testosterone maintains healthy functioning of reproductive tissue, bone mass and can also help regulate mood. We always use your lab results to determine whether or not therapy is needed and how much testosterone is required to bring your body into balance. Low testosterone in women can cause low libido, fatigue, weight gain. Balancing testosterone can help ease these symptoms and will not cause an increase in unwanted hair growth or other similar side effects.
How long is a Stem Cell Therapy session?
A Stem Cell Therapy session takes about 15-30 minutes. It is a quick way to help you live life pain free!

What kind of nutrients go into your IV Nutrient Therapy?
IV Nutrient Therapy can be used as a simple rehydration in preparation for, or after a long weekend of abuse (ie: too many shots of tequila and not enough water) as well as post-illness to speed recovery.

Product-Specific Questions:

What is the difference between synthetic and bioidentical testosterone?

At Tucson Wellness MD, we only use bioidentical testosterone in our Testosterone Replacement Therapy because bioidentical testosterone is naturally derived from plants, and is therefore a closer match to what your body naturally produces. Synthetic testosterone, by contrast, is created in a lab using synthetic products and chemicals. We believe in using natural products whenever possible to keep your body strong, healthy, and empowered for years to come.
