About Stem Cells

Stem cells repair damaged parts of the body.

Human body is made of some sixty trillion cells. These cells are responsible for various functions of tissues and organs. Among these cells are special cells that can transform to different cells and create new ones. These cells are called stem cells.

Congregating around damaged tissue, stem cells differentiate and proliferate, creating new cells and repairing tissue over and over again until the original function is restored. Stem cells are responsible for replenishing the body and restoring functions that are lost because of illness or injury. Stem cells are primarily found in bone marrow and adipose tissue.

In about three months, stem cells repair the weakened cells by creating new cells and turning into various cells.

One of the primary functions of stem cells is to supplement lost cells due to illness or injury. Stem cells are found throughout the body and one of their properties is that they migrate to specific areas. Signals compel them to migrate to specific parts of the body for repairing cells. A damaged part of the body sends a signal, which stem cells then receive. They travel through the bloodstream to congregate in the signal-sending area.

Once there, the stem cells divide, create new blood vessels, shore up lost cells, and transform to play a range of roles. The way stem cells congregate in a damaged area is referred to as a homing effect; in about three months, they transform into the needed type of cells to complete the repairing the damaged area.

Attracting attentions as aging-care therapy

The aging of the body is an inevitable phenomenon. Eyesight, hearing, sensitivity, reflexes, bones, and joints weaken, immune function declines, and skin loses its elasticity and gloss. This changing and weakening of the whole body is due to the aging of the cells themselves. This is because the number of cells and intercellular water level decrease as one ages.

As one ages, the cells, the source of the body's internal healing ability, become less active and lose their ability to replicate. One could argue that an aging body contains many areas that are predisposed to disease. When stem cells are administered, they reach damaged areas and tissues which have declined in function due to aging and repair them, providing preventative effects before the symptoms appear. By repairing and rejuvenating capillary vessels and vascular walls, which become brittle and inelastic with age, it is possible to slow down aging. Stem cell therapy’s potential for anti-aging and rejuvenation has attracted much attention.

Stem cell therapy has great potential in aesthetic medicine.

Stem cell therapy has great potential in its prospective use in aesthetic medicine. For both men and women, administering cultured stem cells leads to repairing capillary vessels and vascular walls in the weakened area. Rejuvenation from within the body not only changes one’s face and skin but often the behavior of the person as well, resulting in ultimate anti-aging.

For women, dark spots and wrinkles are common aging issues and they are caused primarily by deterioration of cells. Administering of cultured stem cells revitalize the cells and promotes their proliferation. Stem cell therapy is also expected to be effective for aging issues for men including skin issues and sexual issues. For both men and women, we offer stem cell therapy tailored for their individual aging issues.

Stem cell therapy has great potential in preventive medicine.

When a part of the body is damaged and symptoms worsen, this is considered an illness. However, modern humans are exposed to a range of factors beyond traditional aging including environmental, stress, and lifestyle factors that make people of all ages predisposed to illness. You may be unaware but already be sustaining damage somewhere in your body. Treating and repairing the damaged area before symptoms appear is the key to preventive medicine.

If you find yourself somewhat under the weather but cannot put your finger on why, and do not seem to have the same energy you used to, this is your body's way of telling you something is wrong. By administering stem cells to the area sending this signal, the stem cells target the area and repair it. This way, stem cells offer tremendous possibilities for preventive therapy.
