With medical care focused on managing or delaying the progression of chronic disease and illness, the number of ailing patients throughout the United States is staggering. Many patients are caught up in a vicious cycle of seeing multiple doctors and specialists with no hope for healing in sight. Yet, there are great developments taking shape in the form of regenerative medicine, with new innovations, techniques and therapies.
With the potential to fully heal damaged tissues and organs, regenerative medicine is awarding individuals with persistent or life-altering diseases a new lease on life. This is by targeting and treating the underlying cause of their condition, including musculoskeletal pain and injury. Stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections are two examples and continue to prove successful in treating sports-related injuries, diseased or damaged tissues, bones, joints, ligaments and tendons.
Stem Cell Therapy for Joint Pain Relief
A key component of regenerative medicine, stem cell therapy, involves harvesting a patient’s own stem cells from blood, bone marrow or fat tissues in the abdomen and concentrating them using a centrifuge. The isolated platelet cells, which contain rich proteins or “growth factors,” are then injected back into the area of damage or joint pain where they rebuild, strengthen and drive tissue regeneration.
Thus, an individual’s own stem cells are used to accelerate healing by repairing and replacing damaged soft tissues in any joint or structure, including the knees, hips, shoulders, wrists, fingers, back, ankles and elbows. In the long run, there is a dramatic reduction of pain and patients experience greater joint function and ultimately a better quality of life.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Anyone with chronic or severe pain, including joint pain, understands that taking over the counter and prescription medication only provides temporary relief. This is because corticosteroids and painkillers mask the symptoms of a greater underlying issue. Fortunately, regenerative medicine using platelet rich plasma (PRP) has become an effective treatment for chronic or acute joint pain and damage, including torn muscles, ligaments and even arthritis.
Once a small amount of a patient’s blood is taken, it is spun in a centrifuge, which separates the platelet-rich-plasma. The concentrated platelets are rich in growth factors and enable injured tissues to repair and heal themselves. Specifically, PRP therapy can initiate the repair of torn cartilage that cushions joints, torn tendons and damaged nerves (an example is in the wrist from carpal tunnel syndrome). It also replaces the synovial liquid and other buffering agents within joints that allow for mobility and pain-free movement.
Conditions Treated with Regenerative Cell Therapy
A number of degenerative joint and arthritic conditions can be treated at Modern Aesthetica with regenerative cell therapy, and many physicians and orthopedic organizations agree that platelet rich plasma (PRP) should be the first choice in treating torn, weakened or damaged tendons, muscles, ligaments, menisci and labrums. Additionally, regenerative cell therapy provides non-surgical healing therapy for the following:
- Knee joint pain
- Hip pain
- Shoulder pain
- Wrist and finger joint pain
- Lower back pain
Do you experience pain from an injury that happened long ago? Perhaps you’ve strained a muscle or are suffering from an overuse injury, arthritis or inflammation.

Dr. Danny keeps it real! With gratitude, I have decided to write this review. I got a few subtle services done with him and I have been really happy about it. I proudly say that I trust his insight and knowledge. He truly is a talented physician and works from his heart. I am fortunate to have found this place. Thank you Modern Aesthetica!
I was referred to Dr. Dan via a couple clients/friends. I went in there not really knowing what to expect...but I needed help filling in some lines without actual filler. He's honest and even told me I DIDN'T need things I though I might. When I say instant results...I mean it. Shocking! He's professional, courteous and straight to the point. It's been 3 days and I can't stop staring at my face...very well knowing the results I already see will be even better in 2 weeks. Amazing. Referring everyone I know!
Dr. Daniel is the best. His office is clean and the receptionist made me feel super welcome and comfortable. Will definitely be returning!!!
Top notch facility. Top notch doctor. Very happy to have found this place! Thanks Dr M!
Dr. Daniel has helped me with my fitness journey so much! He is a truly caring physician and was available for me every step of the way. A lot of weight loss and fitness doctors use the same template, but I KNOW he treats every patient specifically, and adjusts the regimen to tailor it to my needs.
I went to go see Dr. Danny recently and he treated with kit gloves. I couldn't be happier. He's a phenomenal doctor and what a beautiful facility.
I was referred to Dr. Danny by a friend who got great results with his fitness regimen. I had hit a plateau in terms of my results so that’s why I first went to Modern. I didn’t know what to expect but I was amazed at everything Dr. Danny shared with me. He gave me some great advice on a medicine based fitness regiment and customized something just for me. Loving the results. Thank you!
I had a Vampire Facial here and the results were amazing. Dr. Danny made sure I looked great for my best friend's party 1 week after. Finding a great doctor in Los Angeles can be tough but I think I found a solid one here! If you want to look your VERY best, I highly recommend Dr. Danny and the entire staff at Modern Aesthetica!
Dr. Daniel is the best choice I have ever made! It took me a while to settle on a physician, but I'm glad I chose him!
Hello All...I recently went to see Dr. Daniel @ the newly opened Modern Aesthetics Spa and I was delighted! I had an upcoming social event so I decided to try the PRP facial AKA the vampire facial. There was no discomfort involved and the results were great...soft, pretty, glowing skin! Great staff too...ask for Dana for scheduling, she's awesome!
What can I say! Dr. Danny and his team gave me the amazing glow I wanted for my holiday party. This was my first time doing any lip fillers and facial services and I am totally happy about the results! I'll be back.
I recently tried out the laser hair removal, my legs are so soft. Dr. Daniel did and great job I'm very pleased with the results I got I'll definitely be going back. I recommend everyone go check him out!
This was my first experience with laser hair removal and I've heard a lot of discoursing rumors about pricing and pain. Dr. Daniel made me feel super comfortable about going forward with this treatments and I can't describe how satisfied I am with the results!!!! I did my underarms to start and I will most certainly be going back for more
Let me start by saying, I am VERY selective with who I get work done by. My best friend referred me to Dr. Danny after getting botox done by him. I wanted to not only make my lips more plump, but also correct my crooked upper lip. I have had my lips done before and know what I like. I asked Dr. Danny to give me a natural plump and correction. It has been a week since I've got my lips done and I am pleased to say, he is one of the few Doctors I've come across that ACTUALLY listens to the patients desires. There is a dangerous line between natural enhancements and an overdone fake look. I absolutely love my natural plump and can confidently say that I trust Dr. Danny's work.
I finally decided to try laser hair removal after getting tired of waxing for all these years. I got really attentive service from Dr. Daniel - he actually asked me questions that were relevant to my needs. I informed him that it took a lot of courage for me to finally try out lasering because I was so afraid that it would hurt! I've been going for a couple months now and my body is slowing becoming hairless! I highly recommend Dr. Daniel. Btw the office is brand new and super cute. I’m looking forward to see how the rest of maintenance of the Laser treatment will be.
