How Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy Works
The Novus Center is confident that your problems can be solved with regenerative medicine as opposed to pharmaceuticals or surgery. Even problems like Erectile Dysfunction (ED) can be treated and cured with modern regenerative therapy. One of the most powerful options available today is the use of mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapy.
MSCs are stem cells that can transform into a variety of tissues, including muscle, bone, cartilage, and vascular structures. In addition to becoming new healthy cells, they also release exosomes that encourage existing cells to multiply. Let’s look at how MSC therapy works and how it can treat ED better than any other option on the market.
How Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy Works
MSC therapy might involve some complex science, but the treatment itself is actually quite simple. MSCs are injected into the part of your body that needs treatment. This approach has been tested and approved in a number of different applications.
The effects are often visible within 48 hours, but they continue to get better over time. Since stem cell therapy actually causes new, healthy cells to form in the body, the full effects of a single therapy session may not be seen for a few months. These effects generally last for at least a year, although some patients report even longer-lasting results.
Sources of MSCs
A mesenchymal stem cell is very different from some of the other types of stem cells you might have heard about. Rest assured that there are no ethical quandaries with MSCs. Unlike embryonic stem cells (ESCs), MSCs do not involve embryos at all.
MSCs can come from a number of your body parts, including your bone marrow, fat tissue, and even the bursae of your joints. However, studies show the most potent MSCs tend to come from placenta and amniotic fluid tissues. We use these at The Novus Center for best results.
Exosomes Skip the Middle Man
We also strive to use the best techniques to get the best results. As treatments evolve with new scientific research, we keep up to date. The P-Shot is a perfect example. The first P-Shot simply used PRP to induce healing and regeneration of tissue.
From there, the P-Shot+ included MSCs to improve its effectiveness. Now, we’re taking the P-Shot to a new level: The Exosome P-Shot.
Exosomes stick to the outside of MSCs and release the critical growth factors and proteins that repair cell damage. They are much smaller than the cells themselves. The Exosome P-Shot takes the exosomes off the cells and concentrates them into one injection, producing a more powerful effect than before.
Treating ED With Mesenchymal Stem Cell Exosome Therapy
Using exosomes has several advantages for patients. For starters, their small size means they’re able to penetrate tissues more easily, ensuring more uniform results from a single treatment. By removing the actual stem cells, we also remove the risk of a bad cell transformation, which can lead to the formation of tumors.
ED can be caused by a number of issues. So far, the research for all of these cases points to exosome therapy as a potentially universal solution for ED.
The connection between ED and type-2 diabetes is well documented. Long-term blood sugar problems can lead to damage to the nerves and blood vessels responsible for obtaining and maintaining an erection. Most medical advice is simply to get your body into the best health possible to prevent this, but what about restoring function after damage has been done?
One study showed that injecting exosomes in type 2 diabetic cases would lead to natural healing as the exosomes prevented further cell damage and gave the body time to heal. Another study used several different kinds of MSCs and found the results to be positive in every case.
Physical trauma to the penis can cause damage to the corpus cavernosum, which is the tissue that fills with blood to produce an erection. Likewise, the nerve cells that connect to this tissue and signal it to take in blood can also become damaged from an injury.
This has always been a difficult form of ED to treat because trauma typically leads to scar tissue that can prevent other cells from functioning properly. However, a study compared the use of regular MSCs and MSC exosomes, and found that the exosome treatment was the only one to significantly enhance muscle content and nerve function.
ED becomes more prevalent as men get older. More men are affected than you might realize. A study from the Massachusetts Male Aging Study claimed that it was at 52%!
Fortunately, reviews of dozens of studies have consistently shown that mesenchymal stem cell therapy actually produces physiological changes that address the root causes of ED. Instead of treating the symptoms with medication, you can turn back the hands of time to restore function with modern science.
Peyronie’s disease is a condition that causes men to have painful, curved erections. The disease produces fibrous scar tissue in the penis, even when no trauma has occurred. This can make erections difficult to get and keep, and can even make sex impossible if the curvature of the penis is significant.
A 2015 study, one of the first to use MSCs to combat Peyronie’s disease, showed vast improvement in the condition of all patients. After three months, several patients saw their problem clear up completely.
Choose a Better Treatment
When it comes to treating ED, we have more options now than ever before. However, your choice in treatment matters. Surgeries are complex and can have catastrophic consequences if something goes wrong. Pills may work for a short time, but they only treat the symptoms and not the problem itself.
The Exosome P-Shot and mesenchymal stem cell therapy is the only way to actually restore function to your body and attack ED at its roots. Call The Novus Center of Los Angeles today to schedule a consultation and find out how the latest in regenerative medicine can transform your life.
