Aging is a complex, personal, and highly diverse process. In their own unique way, at their own individual pace, our cells become increasingly damaged by stress and toxins, and we begin to lose strength, flexibility, and skin elasticity.
Novus Anti-Aging stem cell therapy stimulates those aging cells to regenerate, potentially slowing down this process by applying the most potent treatment known to science: mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).
After decades of clinical research and innovation, regenerative medicine is harnessing and channeling your body's natural ability to regenerate painful joints, ligaments, and even skin tissues that are losing elasticity.
To discover how regenerative therapy may help you once again savor your productivity, your leisure time, and those spontaneous, pain free moments you’ll never forget, call our specialists at Novus Anti-Aging Center today at (310) 954-1450 or contact us here.
As you read this, the blood in your eyes, face, and neck is bustling with billions of specialized cells (stem cells) that hold the power to replicate, then regenerate your skin, muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, and even organs.
Once you approach middle age, extracting your damaged bone marrow or fat stem cells becomes more difficult. Regenerative medicine has developed ways to isolate and import younger, healthier cells into your body to restore damaged tissue.
The ultimate goal of regenerative researchers is to develop cures for injuries and conditions once believed to be permanent or incurable – potentially even, to some extent, the natural process of aging. Unlike traditional pharmaceutical treatment, regenerative medicine aims not just to mask the symptoms, but to heal the underlying cellular causes of aging.
Scientists call the aging process – the loss of a cell’s power to divide and grow – senescence. Numerous studies published in the journal Genetics have shown that systemic signals can influence stem cells, but also, that each tissue type in our bodies has the capacity to modulate the activity of its stem cells. How? Like aglets (those little plastic tips at the end of shoelaces that prevent fraying), our telomeres are the caps at the end of our DNA strands that protect our chromosomes from damage. When telomeres become critically short, cells die.
Scientists know that an enzyme in the human body, telomerase, can add back length to these telomeres. A study published in Scientific Reports describes how clinicians observed a rescue of telomere length by optimizing stem cell ability to cope with senescence. As we age, stem cell production capacity diminishes – that’s why nagging injuries take much longer to heal.
Enter your Novus Anti-Aging provider, who offers up nature’s pharmacy full of mesenchymal stem cells that may prevent further fraying of those telomeres. These potent MSCs can transform into not just one, but into a variety of cell types: bone cells, cartilage cells, muscle cells, or skin cells, enabling us to recover from damage of all sorts: liver disease, heart conditions, torn tissues, and sagging skin. They “home” in on damaged tissue and begin repair.
When our adult bone marrow or fat stem cells no longer boast robust blood circulation, we’re able to borrow stem cells from younger blood. Regenerative medicine specialists isolate multipotent MSCs from umbilical cords of newly delivered babies and unused fertility clinic embryos.
Novus Anti-Aging sources its stem cells from one of the pre-eminent public life sciences and stem cell companies in the United States: Predictive BioTech. This Utah-based company extracts stem cells using FDA-approved technologies and sources. Predictive's cells have had no recorded instance of rejection by the patient's body, which speaks to the quality and safety of their stem cell products.
Our team at Novus Anti-Aging Center is excited to share the seemingly endless benefits of stem cell therapy to enhance your:
During your first visit to our anti-aging clinic, you’ll discuss details of your condition, expectations, goals, and potential outcomes, so your Novus provider can determine whether you are a good candidate for stem cell therapy. If you are, then a date for your procedure will be scheduled.
On the day of your therapy your Novus practitioner may inject a small amount of local anesthetic to numb the needle pathway on your skin. However, he or she will not apply large amounts of local anesthetic into the area being treated. Studies have shown this may damage the stem cells. You should feel little or no pain from these injections. The process typically takes about thirty minutes.
Your post-injection recovery time will be minimal. It requires waiting for the local anesthesia to wear off. Your doctor will most likely discuss your expectations again and may offer advice regarding your specific case. You may then return to your usual daily activities, but will be asked to avoid heavy exercise or stress. Rest is advisable.
Having an inflammatory response after a stem cell injection is quite common. This is not an indication that your body is rejecting the cells – it may actually be a positive sign that the live cells are stimulating a healing response.
The degree of your inflammatory response can vary based on the levels of IL-6 within your tissue and the degree of damage and inflammation you came to us with. Also, if your PRP therapy combined with stem cell injection increases the probability of inflammatory response.
As with any other injection procedure, there is a very small risk of bacterial infection NOT associated with the cells.
Usually pain relief begins immediately after stem cell treatment. Skin tissue regeneration time varies depending on the severity of your injury and your ability to follow post stem cell injection care. As with any medical treatment, results may vary based on your age, your genetics and general health.
