Repair, Replace & Regenerate By Harnessing the Healing Powers of Your Own Cells
Regenerative medicine, which uses the body’s own healing processes to repair and replace multiple types of tissues, is the most exciting area in medicine today and is revolutionizing healthcare. Using concentrated reparative growth factors and tissue signaling substances derived from your own blood, fat, or bone marrow, damaged parts of the body can possibly be repaired or replaced safely without surgery or medications.
Stem cells are cells that can transform into multiple types of cells, including bone, cartilage, blood vessels, muscles, nerves, and skin. They’re responsible for replacing dying cells and regenerating or repairing damaged tissue. Treatments using stem cells have shown promising results in some spinal cord injuries, cardiovascular disease, neurological problems, severe arthritis, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases. Stem cells are found most abundantly in the fat and bone marrow and most people don’t mind the thought of losing a little of their own fat to try to repair another body area.
Recent research has suggested that the contents of stem cells, rather than the cells themselves, produce the reparative or rejuvenating effects seen. Stem cells release several types of growth factors that help reduce inflammation, enhance immune function, and replace damaged tissue.
Adipose-derived Healing Factor Treatments – The Fat Factors
Adipose tissue is rich in the blood vessels around which stem cells are located and is relatively abundant in most people, making it an excellent source for treatments. Skinspirations provides several kinds of fat factor treatments including nanofat and fat-derived stem cell musculoskeletal treatments.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is used as a therapy for many conditions including tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, muscle strains, damaged skin, hair loss, & even for severe dry eyes. The procedure is quick, relatively painless, and requires no post-procedure care or time off from daily events. A small amount of blood will be drawn from you, the PRP is separated out, and it’s then used for your treatment. In the case of dry eyes, it’s sent home with you in sterile dropper bottles.
Regenerative Musculoskeletal Treatments
Treatment with the healing growth factors found in stem cells has been shown in some cases to promote the healing of injured joints, stimulate cartilage growth, and decrease pain from chronic arthritis. At Skinspirations, we provide fat-derived growth factor or PRP treatments for chronic knee arthritis, partial rotator cuff tears in the shoulders, and ligament injuries in the knee and shoulder. The procedure for fat-derived healing factor therapy involves obtaining a few ounces of fat by mini-liposuction under local anesthetic, separating out the healing factors from the fat, and then injecting these into the affected areas.
