How Stem Cell Technology is Healing Us

Despite being the latest buzz word in the medical industry, stem cells are not a new discovery. They are as old as the human body. Today, after years of medical studies and scientific trials, regenerative doctors are now practicing effective stem cell therapies for everything from sports injuries and arthritis pain to treatments for heart disease and cancer. Elite professional athletes from the NFL, NBA and worldwide have been using stem cell technology for years – so now the secret is out, and it’s becoming more readily available for private therapy. It’s changing the way we’re healing our bodies. As an evolving industry, doctors and scientists are now understanding how to harness the healing potential and restorative properties that stem cells offer. These are exciting times.  

What is a Stem Cell? 

Everyone is born with stem cells – they’re the building blocks of life, and a crucial element that triggers our bodies to begin the healing process whenever we become injured.  

Stem cells have unique properties, and unlike other cells in the body, they have the ability to heal and regenerate healthy tissue. They target damaged or injured tissue in the body, then divide and regenerate into a new cell – repairing and replacing the damaged cells with healthy cells, thus healing tissue. Stem cells regenerate what is damaged, hence the name regenerative medicine.  

Stem Cell Therapy 

Regenerative medicine is an exciting field of medicine that is constantly evolving with new treatments and therapies, which bring relief to patients with chronic pain and injuries that may have been unresponsive to previous treatments. In addition to treating chronic conditions, stem cells have incredible abilities to rejuvenate tired, overstressed skin, and restore skin to a more youthful appearance. At Regenerative Aesthetics & Lasers NW, we offer several facial rejuvenation and aesthetic treatments. We also provide stem cell therapies to treat patients suffering from spinal injuries or chronic pain, as well as rheumatoid and osteoarthritis that can cause joint pain such as knee and hip pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, back pain, neck pain and more.  We also use offer stem cell therapy to improve sexual health in both men and women.  

What Happens During a Stem Cell Therapy Procedure?  

Our stem cell therapy is safe, natural, virtually painless and most importantly effective. At Regenerative Aesthetics & Lasers NW, we use stem cells harvested from the patient’s adipose (fat) tissue. Since most people have adequate supplies of fat tissue, those specific stem cells are readily available.  

The stem cell therapy begins with a mini-liposuction procedure, where less than 120 cc’s of fat is removed. Once the stem cells have been harvested, the concentration is then placed into a centrifuge. The centrifuge “spins” down the stem cells and growth factors until they have been separated and concentrated. The growth-factor rich concentration is then re-injected back into the patient via an IV, intrathecally or intramuscularly, depending on the treatment area. Our stem cell therapy takes no more than 3 hours from start to finish, in most cases.  

What Conditions Can Stem Cell Therapy Treat? 

At Regenerative Aesthetics & Lasers NW, we use stem cell therapy to treat a variety of conditions, including:  

We have several satisfied patients who credit stem cell therapy for bringing them relief and rejuvenation. If you’re suffering from a chronic condition, and haven’t found relief with previous treatments, please contact our office today. We would love to create a personalized treatment plan for you to help you achieve your goals.
