Understanding the science, types and benefits of stem cell therapy
How Stem Cells Work
Adipose stem cells are “blank,” or undifferentiated, cells that an adult’s body creates to replace dying cells or heal damaged tissue. Once collected in a nearly painless procedure from naturally occurring fatty deposits, these stem cells can be reintroduced into specific areas of the body to regenerate healthy cells and accelerate the body’s healing processes.
We use your own naturally occurring, adult Adipose-derived, Mesenchymal stem cells. These remarkable cells are able to differentiate into a variety of cell types, including bone, cartilage, muscle and fat cells, that can promote healing and reduce pain and inflammation.
Stem Cells for Wellness
As humans, we will go through a process called Senescence, which is biological aging. The physical signs of aging start as we age because of a depletion of stem cells. There is potential to combat this process through advances in modern medicine by slowing down senescence using stem cell therapy. This phenomenon allows the body to slow down the aging process to lengthen life but possibly more importantly enhance quality of life.
How does this work?
Stem cells give instructions and nutrients to the cells to encourage a healthier body. Stem cells may provide you with a strong immune system, helping your body shield itself from harmful bacteria and viruses. Throughout your lifetime, stem cells are actively working to repair parts of your body, however, as we age, with less stem cells readily available, we can’t recover from these disease processes as easily.
Stem cell treatment has potential to help the following:
• Enhance mood
• Increased energy levels
• Improve sexual health
• Improve cardiovascular system
• Improve immune system
• Improve memory
• Help get rid of nagging injuries and pains by healing naturally.
• Increased skin elasticity and more supple skin.

What are the benefits of an ADSC procedure?
Adult stem cells play an integral part in wound healing and regeneration of tissue at the cellular level.
•Our technology allows us to complete the entire minimally invasive procedure on the same day. ?
•High Yield: A high-dose of stromal vascular fraction (growth factors and stem cells) can be obtained in just a couple of hours. ?
•Mesenchymal stem cell yields from peripheral fat are much higher than from bone marrow. ?
•Patients receive their own autologous cells, so there is little to no chance of rejection. ?
•A minimally invasive outpatient procedure makes it easier to harvest from fat than from bone marrow and more comfortable for patients. ?
What is an Autologous Adipose Stem Cell (ADSC) procedure?
A small sample of Adipose tissue (fat) is removed from above the Superior Iliac spine (love handles) or abdomen under a local anesthetic. Obtaining Adipose-Derived Stem Cells (ADSCs) is much easier and less invasive than performing a bone marrow extraction. In addition, adipose tissue contains much larger volumes of mesenchymal stem cells than bone marrow. We use the patient’s own adipose tissue to extract the stem cells. Autologous means that the donor and the recipient are the same person.
