Regenerative Medicine uses innovative therapies to allow your own body to repair itself; i.e., aging cells, regenerating tissues and organs. The goal of Regenerative Medicine is to restore function to damaged or malfunctioning tissues and organs. PRP and Exosome therapy harnesses the body’s natural healing properties and injects them into precisely targeted areas to encourage healing!
Rejuvenage MD utilizes state-of-the-art technology to administer regenerative medicine to our patients. Our team of highly trained specialists can perform regenerative medicine procedures with high levels of safety and efficacy. Dr. Kumar and Dr. Oomman are incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about patient treatment, openly offering insights into why procedures are done, their unique benefits, and the science involved in regenerative medicine therapies.
PRP Therapy (Link to PRP Page)
PRP is a complementary therapy with stem cells. We find it can enhance the recovery benefits for our more severe cases. PRP can also be used for aesthetic treatments as well such as hair restoration and facials.
Exosomes (Link to Exosomes Page)
Exosomes can be regarded as the purest form of cellular therapy available because their function is to direct tissue and wound healing by activating the patient’s own regenerative cell response.
There are various comprehensive therapies in the marketplace, and with numerous benefits and distinctions, presented by the various manufacturers and research clinics. Rejuvenage MD has Listed Below these 5-Next Generation Therapies:
1st Generation: PRP & PRF
The next stage in evolution is PRP and PRF. PRP is Platelet Rich Plasma and PRF is Platelet Rich Fibrin. Here blood is drawn from the guest and platelets and fibrin are concentrated. There is a long history of using this in orthopedics, dental surgery, and medical aesthetics.
The components in PRP and PRF help modulate cell proliferation, differentiation, chemotaxis, and angiogenesis. There is a wide body of evidence that shows PRP and PRF helps with accelerated healing and increased neo-collagenesis.
Rejuvenage MD offers both PRP and PRF in our practice. PRP facials, PRP therapy for hair loss, PRP joint injections, PRP for sexual health, and numerous other therapies are offered in our practice.
2nd Generation: Amniotic Products
This is derived from the amniotic membrane and amniotic fluid that is obtained after delivery. Amniotic Fluid helps reduce inflammation, increased epithelial cell reproduction, increases angiogenesis(new blood vessel formation) to increase blood flow. Such changes cause improved collagen formation in the tissue. Amniotic products are anti-inflammatory by nature.
Rejuvenage MD offers Bio-D Restore and Bio-D Factor in our clinic for joint injections, hair loss.
3rd Generation: UCSC- Umbilical cord-derived stem cells.
As the name suggests, this is derived from the umbilical cord. Umbilical cord cells have low viability after the freeze-thaw cycle. They usually remain viable in vivo for less than 3 days. They act by a paracrine mechanism by producing Exosomes. The disadvantage of USCS is that these cells can mount a graft versus host response to the host. These graft cells can attack the host cells when they are injected into the body. Hence these are not used much in aesthetics.
4th Generation: Autologous Stem Cells
SVF stands for stromal Vascular Fraction; ADSC stands for Adipose-derived Stem cells and BMAC stands for Bone Marrow Aspirate Stem Cells Concentrate. All of these are Autologous which means that they are derived from your own body. This ensures that your body will not reject these cells. Obtaining these cells requires a harvesting procedure such as tumescent liposuction or Bone Marrow Aspiration.
These harvest materials then have to be processed by mechanical processions such as microfiltration or enzymatic processing. These cells have demonstrated remarkable benefits for multiple clinical indications. They remain viable in-vivo for 7 days. They all work by a paracrine mechanism by producing Exosomes. ALMI is the next generation treatment where fat is obtained from your own body. These fat cells and SVF obtained from fat are then micronized and injected back under the skin and scalp for regeneration of skin and scalp.
Rejuvenage MD offers ALMI in our clinic for facial rejuvenation, hair loss, and vaginal health.
5th Generation: MSC Exosomes
MSC stands for Mesenchymal stem cells. MSC are multipotent stromal cells. This means that they can differentiate into a variety of cells (osteoblasts-bone cells; Chondrocytes-cartilage cells; myocytes-muscle cells; adipocytes-fat cells) MSC Exosomes are nanoscopic extracellular vesicles that are produced by stem cells that have a complete cytokine/mRNA profile of peri-natal MSC and have identical lipid bi-layer membrane to MSC. Exosomes stabilize mRNA and miRNA during transport to the target tissue and instruct the cells to regenerate or heal.
