What Conditions Can Stem Cell Therapy Treat?
You may be hearing a lot about innovative stem cell therapy these days. What exactly can stem cells do, and is this a treatment you may want to consider? At Beyond Regenerative Medicine & Aesthetics in Newport Beach, CA, we offer stem cell and exosome therapies for various cosmetic and health concerns. Stem cells help renew, rejuvenate, and encourage healing in the body. Stem cell application has been shown to be beneficial for aging skin, hair loss, inflammatory conditions, sexual health, and degenerative joint issues. We encourage you to read through our blog to learn more about the benefits of stem cell therapy and how it may help you.
What are stem cells?
Stem cells are extraordinary cells, present from birth, that have the capability to respond to their environment and transform according to what the body needs. They are part of our natural healing process. For regenerative purposes, doctors can use your own stem cells, called autologous stem cells, taken from your adipose tissue or bone marrow. Alternatively, we have the option to use stem cells taken from healthy newborn tissue, called allogenic adult stem cells. At our Newport Beach facility, Dr. Berkey offers these allogenic cells because they are more than twice as active and viable as our aging cells, and this alleviates the need for a bone marrow aspiration or fat harvesting procedure. Rest assured, we only utilize ethically sourced stem cells from donated umbilical cords and tissue, carefully tested and preserved in Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved labs. Of note, fetal or embryonic cells are no longer used in regenerative medicine.
How are stem cells administered?
Method of application of stem cells depends on your health issue, and the treatment plan decided with your provider. Stem cells can be administered through IV infusion, injection, or as a nasal spray. For example, for hair restoration, facial rejuvenation treatments, or regenerative therapy, we can inject stem cells with microneedles into the affected area.
During a consultation at Beyond Regenerative Medicine & Aesthetics in Newport Beach, CA, we discuss the different treatment methods in detail and provide a personalized plan for improved joint function, a glowing complexion, intimacy issues, or reduction of hair loss.
