Stem cells are the building blocks of the body. When there is an illness or injury, these stem cells respond to specific signals and become available to facilitate healing through differentiation into specialized cells required for body repairing. As we age, we suffer a decrease in the number of stem cells and their plasticity resulting in the inevitable aging of our bodies. The stem cell therapy can slow down and rejuvenate the aged tissue.
The fat in your body is the medicine as it contains millions of stem cells. Adipose tissue is the richest known source of adult stem cells of the human body. Adult stem cells are found in all the organs of the human body, but there are much larger quantities in the adipose tissue producing an incredible amount of 10-60 million stem cells per sample, and 95% of them are mesenchymal stem cells capable of differentiating into various cell types that repair the body.
Mesenchymal stromal stem cells seem to be one of the most capable tools of the body for self-repair.
They are able to perform three important functions with unique abilities:
Plasticity: Potential to turn into other cell types.
Homing: Travel to the damaged tissue.
Graft: Attachment to damaged tissues
What is stem cell therapy?
Stem cell therapy is the use of adult stem cells to treat certain diseases. Stem cells derive from the patient’s own blood, bone marrow and / or fat. In general, stem cells are progenitor cells that give rise to the creation of new regenerative cells.
What is the procedure about?
Adipose tissue is removed from the patient through a mini liposuction and processed with the Adistem protocol for obtaining the stem cells and platelet-rich plasma cells (PRP). Then, they are processed to obtain plasma, rich in growth factors, and stem cells are activated by ADISTEM laser. Subsequently, literally millions of freshly activated stem cells from the patient are administered back into the patient’s body and start working immediately.
It is a revolutionary procedure that extracts and reintroduces stem cells into the patient, all with the same procedure, on the same day, and at the same facility. This procedure can be completed with appropriate qualified experience within 4-5 hour. Patients will be treated with local anesthesia procedure so it is virtually painless and easily adjusts to an active lifestyle. There is no need to wait or prepare cultures of autologous cells which we do not want to change or manipulate stem cells. We will keep them in their natural state until they are reintroduced into the body. This is in direct contrast to the removal of bone marrow or other methods that are currently used. Since we use the most abundant source of stem cells found in the patient’s own fat, there is no need to manipulate and multiply these autologous cells, which helps ensure their survival.
