Over the decades, multiple procedures have been developed to achieve a more youthful and vibrant look such as using fillers to smooth out the deep wrinkles and lines on the face. Most of these consist of temporary fillers that eventually are absorbed and wear off. With the advance of Stem Cell technology, we can now use your own stem cells as fillers. This procedure is called Autologous Stem Cell treatment – a long term rejuvenation that doesn’t involve any foreign substance that is not your own. By harvesting stem cells from your adipose tissue and peripheral blood, the procedure restores youthful contour on the back of your hands.
Autologous Stem Cell Therapy Institute was founded in 2010 by Dr. Edmund Chein, MD.. Dr. Chein received his orthopedic and rehabilitation medicine training from the Los Angeles County- University of Southern California Medical Center. Dr. Chein was the first in the United States to use Human Growth Hormone for anti-aging in adults. In 1994 he founded the Palm Springs Life Extension Institute. Every year, hundreds of new patients come to the Institute from all over the world to get bio-identical hormone supplementation to slow down the aging and reverse biological age by lengthening the telomeres in their DNA. In 2012, Dr. Chein added Autologous Stem Cell Therapy to cure some of the disabling orthopedic conditions which Growth Hormone cannot cure, and enhance the youthful look of the hands of his patients.
What other conditions can Autologous Stem Cell Therapy treat?
Orthopedic conditions such as:
Osteoarthritis – IRB approved protocol
Tendinitis, partially torn tendons, ligaments, and meniscus of the knees. – IRB approved protocol
(IRB = Institutional Review Board – a FDA-approved research project)
The Importance of Growth Factors in the Success of Your Stem Cell Therapy
There are many types of stem cells used in stem cell therapy today. The most common and safest is autologous stem cell therapy, which uses one’s own stem cells collected from one’s own adipose tissues and peripheral blood. When your own stem cells are used as fillers, the stem cells become your skin cells, making the cosmetic correction permanent and natural.
It is well known that the age of the donor (you, in the case of autologous stem cell therapy) and the donor’s level of growth factors, such as IGF-1, growth hormone, testosterone, and estrogen, are directly proportional to the number and quality of the donor’s stem cells. In order to have a good quantity and quality of stem cells collected, we check the levels of the above-mentioned growth factors in the donor before starting the therapy.
We recommend bringing growth factors up to their optimal levels in case the levels of growth factors in you are deficient due to age or health status, in order to maximize the rate of success of your stem cell therapy.
Adipose Cell Extraction
We have recently acquired the Belgium-made Nutational Infrasonic Adipose Tissue Liposuction machine to obtain adipose tissue-based stem cells for transplant. It is the most advanced instrument for obtaining good quantity and quality of autologous stem cells from one’s adipose tissues to transplant to and regenerate the hands, as well as tendons, cartilage and ligaments in joints. This also allows us to combine adipose tissue-derived stem cells with those derived from peripheral blood with abundant growth factors.
