STEM CELL REJUVENATION
Stem cells harvested from a patients own body eliminate the possibility of cross reaction or rejection since a patients own body supplying the stem cells.
Numerous studies have shown that autologous (obtained from oneself) bone marrow aspirate contains not only mesenchymal stem cells and progenitor cells, but also contains other cells that produce growth factors and cytokines (cells that affect the behavior of other cells). These cytokines aid in fibroblastic proliferation. Fibroblasts are cells that synthesize connective tissue and are essentially the structural framework of tissues. Stem cells have the ability to form new tissues and allow for the repair and remodeling of soft tissues.
Adipose (fat) tissue is also a rich source of adult stem cells. These stem cells, harvested from one’s own fat, have an extensive proliferative capacity and can differentiate into multiple cell lines. Stem cells derived from adipose tissue can differentiate cells and regenerate. They also provide a scaffolding to hold the stem cells in place and allow them to grow
Adipose derived stem cells are similar but not identical to bone marrow cells and are now being used in skin and full body rejuvenation.
Outstanding regenerative results are achieved by combining adipose stem cell treatment with PRP (Plasma Rich Platelet) therapy. Platelets contain various growth factors that stimulate tissue regeneration. Researchers have concluded that the biological effect of multiple growth factors (Stem cells and Platelets) on tissue regeneration is greater than that of a single growth factor.
