Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell treatments are a type of medical therapy that introduces new cells into damaged tissue in order to treat disease or injury. Stem cell medical researchers believe that stem cell treatments can treat a variety of diseases and health conditions.
Stem cells have the ability to renew themselves and regenerate with multiple differentiation capacities. This means that stem cell therapies and treatments offer significant potential for healing and generation of tissues that can replace diseased and damaged tissue. Because the stem cells used in adult stem cell treatments are from the patient's own body, the risk of rejection and side effects are minimized. Stem cell injections are usually combined with human growth hormone injections to induce faster healing.
Adult stem cell treatments are considered a major medical breakthrough because stem cell therapy can be a highly effective method to treat a number of disabling diseases.
Adult stem cells used in treating disease and injury are derived from biological sources such as: blood, body fat, umbilical cord, bone marrow, muscle, placenta, breast milk, dental pulp and other donor sources. It has been found that these adult stem cells act as nature's healing cells which when re-introduced to injured or diseased tissue can heal a number of debilitating diseases that traditional medicine is unable to treat efectively.
Stem cells are a type of cell that can potentially develop into a variety of cell types within the body depending if they "pluripotent" or "multipotent" stem cells. The difference between these cells is:
Pluripotent Stem Cells can grow into almost any other kind of cell within the body including Multipotent cells (except the cell type that supports the fetus).
Multipotent Stem Cells serve as 'repair' cells. Because multipotent stem cells can divide indefinitely, they are available to repair and replenish other cells. Once a stem cell has divided, it may either remain as the type its or to become another type of cell.
Stem cells are effective in treating disease because of their unique ability to affect other cells in the body. Stem cells have the capacity to detect damaged tissue and target those tissues directly to help them repair. The regenerative power of stem cell therapy is used to regenerate cells in specific organs in order to treat medical condition that traditional medical approaches have failed to treat.
Adipose Fat Derived Adult Stem Cells, Autologous Fat Transfer, PRP Therapy and Human Growth Hormone injections are some of the rejuvenative and healing therapies available. Healing and damaged tissue is restored by injecting stem cells, platelet rich plasma and /or human growth hormone (HGH) into the damaged.
For facial rejuvenation, PRP therapy (platelet rich plasma) or stem cell therapy entails transplanting millions of your own adult stem cells under your skin to regenerate collagen fibers, help tighten skin, improve elasticity, eliminate facial lines, reduce wrinkles, smooth scars and replace lost skin volume. Your own adult stem cells and growth factors go to work creating a dynamic cell regeneration response at the cellular level.
Advances in adult stem cell techniques allow the treatment team at Anti-Aging Group to harvest your own natural fat cells, isolating and subsequently activating the harvested stem cells and platelet rich plasma through a centrifugal process. Physicians then add back the activated stem cells together with PRP and growth factors collected from your own blood, and injecting the concentrated stem cells, platelet rich plasma and HGH to targeted areas.
Adult Stem Cells, PRP, Platelet Rich Plasma, and HGH - Human Growth Hormone are now being used to treat injured tissue and joints including inflammatory and chronic conditions. Stem cell injections facilitate the healing of muscle, tendons, ligaments, articular and meniscal injuries.
Platelet Rich Plasma treatments signal the body to send in its own stem cells and grwoth factors to help repair and rejuvenate the damaged or injured area. Platelet Rich Plasma is comprised of concentrated platelets, bioactive proteins including growth factors that are vital to tissue repair and cell regeneration. PRP therapy is used to heal injuries impacting the meniscus, cartilage and bone. PRP helps regenerate new blood vessels and initiate the wound healing process.
Preparing platelet rich plasma requires a small amount of blood be taken from the patient and placed in a specialized centrifuge machine that gently spins and separates the platelets form the rest of the blood components. The entire process takes 15 minutes and increases the concentration of platelets and growth factors up to 600%. These specially concentrated platelets and growth factors promote healing, lessening inflammation and accelerate the cell rgeneration process when injected into the affected tissue.
Injecting the Platelet rich plasma. PRP injections stimulate stem cells to repair the injured area, and by re-injecting concentrated platelets with growth factors, we are facilitating and accelerating the natural healing process. The number of injections performed depends upon the severity and extent of the injury, the age and general health condition of the patient.
The Autologous Growth Factor Components of Platelet Rich Plasma successfully used to facilitate tissue healing:
- TGF-αβ Transforming growth factor alpha & beta
- EGF Epidermal growth factor
- PDEGF Platelet derived epidermal growth factor
- FGF Fibroblast growth factor
- IGF Insulin growth factor
- PDAF Platelet derived angiogenesis factor
- IL-8 Interleuking-8
- TNF-α Tumor necrosis factor alpha
- CTGR Connective tissue growth factor)
- GM-CSF Granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor
- KGF Keratinocyte growth factor
HGH injections are many times administered at the same time a stem cell transplant is performed. HGH (Human Growth Hormone) is converted in the body to insulin growth factor -1 (IGF-1) which causes the implanted stem cells to further multiply and differentiate. IGF-1 is known as a substance that directly stimulates tissue repair and cartilage formation. As people age the production of HGH and subsequently IGF-1 diminishes and replenishing with HGH injections makes up for this growth hormone deficiency. HGH injections can be administered at the time of the stem cells injections or post stem-cell treatment. HGH Injections
