What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a regenerative medical treatment that aims to precisely repair damaged cells and tissues in the body. Although the complex intercellular signaling pathways involved require further research to maximize therapeutic potential, stem cell therapy holds promise as a treatment option for a wide range of medical conditions. While ongoing investigations continue to explore the efficacy of stem cell therapies in conditions such as autoimmune diseases, inflammation, hair regrowth, orthopedic issues, traumatic injuries, skin rejuvenation, and more, their potential impact is being realized.

How do Stem Cells work?

Stem cells may derive from a variety of sources such as umbilical cord tissue, bone marrow, adipose tissue or even circulating in your blood and are stored in niche locations throughout your entire body, ready to be called upon.  Once activated, stem cells have the capacity to

  • Recognize cellular injury in tissue such as the skin, hair follicle, muscle, cartilage, tendon, ligament, blood vessel, bone, and nerve
  • Communicate and coordinate between cells to repair the damaged cells and tissue
  • Neutralize and remove acute and chronic inflammation
  • Mobilize the immune system to fight off infection and disease
  • Regenerate tissue at the cellular level to restore function

Stem Cells Versatility

Stem cells have unique and versatile capabilities to precisely hone in on a target to regenerate and repair cells.  Unique properties include the ability to

  • Replicate themselves to restore the available pool of regenerative cells for future use.
  • Differentiate into a variety of cell types depending on the target tissue to repair.
  • Migrate to sites of injury throughout the body to rapidly heal and repair tissue.
  • Proliferate to amplify the number of available cells involved in tissue regeneration and repair.
  • Dock onto damaged cells to closely direct the repair process
  • Release a secretome, or vast portfolio of bioactive molecules and extracellular vesicles containing the necessary instructions, ingredients, tools, and communication signals to efficiently regenerate tissue

What are sources of injury that stem cell therapy may target?

Cellular and tissue injury may result from a multitude of causes, including:

  • Inflammation from acute or chronic disease states
  • Age-related degenerative tissue changes
  • Overuse injuries related to sports, exercise, or everyday activities
  • Musculoskeletal injury
  • Systemic inflammation from autoimmune disease
  • Photodamage from chronic UV exposure

Target tissue for stem cell therapy

Stem cell therapy is an innovative approach that holds promising results in many key areas of the body that show signs of damage, including:

  • Hair follicles and follicular microenvironment
  • Skin, including the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissue
  • Musculoskeletal tissue such as bone, cartilage, tendon, ligaments, and muscle
  • Systemic targets that affect energy level, focus, and sleep
  • Chronic wounds

How are stem cells incorporated into treatments?

The delivery technique is straightforward and minimally intrusive, making it an appealing choice for those who are appropriate candidates. Stem cells may be introduced by:

IV infusion into the bloodstream 
Direct injection to target tissue such as the scalp, skin, and joints
Topical application over the scalp and skin


Stem cell combination therapy

Stem cell-based treatments hold promise in their ability to combat a variety of conditions that impact daily life.  They may be utilized alone or in combination with our proprietary CRP/Matrix, Exosomes, and Cytosomes in our treatment portfolio, including:

  • Non-surgical hair restoration therapies such as our signature BioScalp treatment, Photobiomodulation with red light therapy, and other innovative therapies
  • Surgical hair restoration such as Bio-Enhanced FUE and FUT
  • Secretome therapy with exosomes and cytosomes
  • Non-surgical BioFacial skin rejuvenation
  • Cytokine Rich Plasma and Platelet Rich Plasma therapies
  • Orthopedic joint injections
