Every cell in your body is a descendant of a stem cell. And now, regardless of your age, there are still stem cells present in various tissues helping to maintain and repair the tissues that they serve. Two tissues noted for a high density of stem cells are fat tissue and bone marrow. However, as we age, stem cells are less plentiful and do not function as well as they once did. Modern medicine has now made it possible for us to harness the power of stem cells to treat damaged or degenerated tissue.
Types of stem cell growth factor treatments for hair restoration available in the United States include:
Here at Beyond Stem Cells, we believe that the current optimal source of stem cells is amniotic tissue-derived stem cells. The stem cells Growth Factors in these tissues are far more plentiful than those found in either bone marrow or fat, particularly as you grow older. Secondly, these stem cells are significantly more active. Third, they require no previous surgical procedure with the associated risks. Finally, these stem cells are associated with significantly more growth factors needed for your tissues to regenerate. Depending on the site being treated, your treatment may consist of a single injection. Currently, our team in Denver performs stem cell growth factor treatments only for hair regeneration, joints, and associated soft tissue because results in these areas have a proven track record of success.
These stem cells are harvested by removing fat from the body in two possible ways. One is through liposuction and the other is by directly removing fat through surgical excision. The fat is then processed and injected back into the patient. The advantage is the patient uses their own tissue. Disadvantages are a surgical procedure which can have complications including bleeding, infection, reaction to anesthetic, and in older patients significantly fewer stem cells obtained in comparison to younger patients, cost of harvesting the fat.
These stem cells are obtained from the bone marrow usually from the hip (femur) or pelvis in a procedure known as bone marrow aspiration. This can be a painful process and has the possible risk of bleeding, and infection.
The stem cell growth factors we use at Beyond Stem Cells have passed a rigorous evaluation process. Our medical director has visited each facility personally to ensure that the facility is operating to current standards and follows all guidelines. Additionally, we require third party testing from all of the companies we use prior to adopting their product.
