Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy (Advanced Therapy)
Autologous (the body’s own) stem cells hardly age at all and they have the capacity to regenerate and rejuvenate the body’s organs and tissues. This has been known for years, and these findings are being increasingly used in the treatment of degenerative and chronic diseases as well as in aesthetic medicine worldwide. Fat tissue is the body’s most important “storehouse” of these valuable cells. The density of stem cells is much higher in fat tissue than, for example, in bone marrow.
Regenerative stem cell therapy requires the liposuction of a smaller quantity of fat. The stem cells are then isolated and injected after suitable preparation. Due to the large number of stem cells in fat tissue, it is not necessary to expand the stem cells artificially in the laboratory. After the stem cells have been harvested and isolated, they can either be injected locally in a given organ or tissue or injected systemically, depending on the indication.
Regenerative stem cell therapy is as an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia. In the case of systemic (usually intravenous) administration, the stem cells find their way on their own to the building sites in the body where their regenerative and healing effect is needed. As a general rule, the therapeutic effect manifests itself a few weeks after the procedure.
This page serves the purpose of information only and is not to be understood as medical advice. We would like to expressly point out that a cure cannot be guaranteed. Stem cell therapy is an advanced and experimental procedure, which has only recently been applied worldwide and for which the long-term studies and reliable documentation on successes, risks and side effects required for a recognized procedure are not yet available.
