The Power of Regenerative Medicine

Cellular injury is a constant and ongoing process throughout our bodies and may occur from acute and chronic inflammation, aging, overuse injury, trauma, and disease states from a variety of sources.  Regenerative cells and acellular products containing stem cells, exosomes, and cytosomes have the ability to identify sites of injury or damage throughout the body, communicate and coordinate at the cellular level to repair the damage, neutralize and remove inflammation and other causative agents, and ultimately restore cells and tissue to their healthy functioning state.

Benefits of regenerative medicine may include:

  • Increased hair growth
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Improvement in joint and/or muscle aches and pains
  • Increased range of motion
  • Accelerated wound healing
  • Enhanced energy, focus, and endurance
  • Improvements in sleep
  • Reduction of localized inflammation
  • Reduction of systemic inflammation

Stem Cells

Regenerative stem cells have the capacity for self-renewal, proliferation, migration and differentiation into more specialized cells.  They may work directly by docking onto damaged cells and influence their behavior or more commonly they release what is known as a secretome.  The secretome is a portfolio of proteins and extracellular vesicles containing bioactive molecules such as growth factors, anti-inflammatory cytokines, transcription factors and other cellular signals that contain the necessary instructions and tools to communicate, target and heal damage from a variety of causes such as aging, disease, and inflammation.  Stem cells may circulate throughout the body or concentrate in niche regions near target tissue to be readily available to respond to injury and inflammation.  Stem cells utilized may be autologous or derived from your own body such as adipose tissue or from an allogenic source such as umbilical cord tissue.

Exosomes and Cytosomes

Exosomes and cytosomes are major components of the stem cell secretome.  They are tiny vesicles enriched with powerful growth factors, anti-inflammatory proteins, microRNA and other bioactive molecules that function in the communication and coordination of targeted repair of damaged tissue and subsequent growth of new, healthy cells such as those in hair follicles, skin, joints, muscles and many others.  They are vast in number as and some regenerative products may contain billions of exosomes and cytosomes.

Advantages of Regenerative Medicine

  • Non-invasive and versatile—can be applied via topical application, injection to target tissue or intravenously for systemic effects.  Can be combined with medical, non-surgical and surgical therapies on the day of treatment

  • Fast-acting—packaged with material immediately available and ready to repair and restore damaged tissue

  • Long-acting—capacity to sustain their effect over a long period of times

  • Readily accessible—Regenerative product obtained from an endogenous source so in most cases, no harvesting is required. They are sterile and undergo strict screening and processing to ensure they are free from communicable diseases. 

  • Abundant—Regenerative therapies may contain tens of millions of regenerative cells while secretome therapy with exosomes and cytosomes may contain billions of the tiny microvesicles in a single treatment session, optimizing the potential for results

  • Minimal downtime—Advanced regenerative therapies may target a wide range of conditions and therefore post-treatment recovery may vary from no downtime at all to light activity for 1-2 weeks depending on the condition and therapy. All treatments are performed as an outpatient, comfortably in a relatively short office visit. Follow up appointments vary depending on the condition to be treated.

Anti-Inflammatory Effects

Regenerative medicine has potent anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects. This means they may selectively activate or inhibit different parts of the immune system for a desired outcome.  As inflammation is a leading culprit in tissue damage ranging from hair loss to auto-immune disease to musculoskeletal injury, these therapies hold the potential to target a wide variety of conditions throughout the body.  

Our approach at Greco Hair Restoration is to identify those sites of damage and direct treatment either locally or systemically to harness the power of regenerative therapies to take a more proactive approach rather than a reactive one, providing your body with more ammunition to help fight aging and disease.

An Additive Effect

Regenerative cells and their secretome are crucial in overseeing, communicating, directing, and providing the necessary cellular repair and regeneration tools. This coordinated therapy can be combined with various medical, non-surgical, and surgical treatments to achieve faster and enhanced results.
