Regenerative medicine is a branch of medicine that focuses on potentiating tissue regeneration and repair to restore normal function to human cells, tissues, and organs. This may be accomplished by replacing damaged tissues/organs or by stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms to heal injured tissues or organs.
This field holds the promise of repairing or replacing damaged tissues that were previously thought to be beyond repair. This may allow for restoration of organ function (liver, kidneys, heart, etc), replacement of damaged tissue (cartilage, tendons, muscles, etc), and improvement in cellular efficiency (metabolism, immunity, anti-aging, etc).
Eventually, it may even be possible to grow new organs outside of the body and implant them within a patient thus eliminating the need for organ donation and the harmful chemotherapy and anti-rejection medicines that presently accompany this type of procedure.
Currently, the forefront of Regenerative Medicine emphasizes the use of stem cell therapies. Stem cell therapies come in a wide variety of options which can be quite confusing to understand. There are different types of stem cells, different sources of stem cells and different ways to administer stem cells.
Examples for sources of stem cell therapies include adipose (fat), bone marrow, umbilical cord, placenta, embryos (illegal in the United States), teeth pulp and blood. These may be injected into a joint, muscle, vein, organ, etc.
Stem cells can differentiate (change) into various types of cells located within the body. If a stem cell is introduced into a muscle, then it will become a muscle cell. If it is introduced into a joint, it will become a cartilage cell, etc. This may allow for tissue regeneration, remodeling, and repair. Alternatively, stem cells also have the ability to affect the environment in which they are introduced through various secretions. This may help to improve immune response, suppress autoimmune attack, recruit native stem cells, and potentiate cellular repair.
Over 5000 papers have been published highlighting the benefits of stem cells and regenerative medicine for various types of conditions. Although stem cell therapies are still considered to be in their infancy, the results have been very promising, and it is an exciting time to be alive. One thing for certain is that regenerative medicine is here to stay and is on pace to bring forth a revolution in the medical field and heal people who had previously had little hope.
Stem Cell Therapy
The human body was designed to repair itself. Modern medicine has taken the approach of using surgeries and chemicals to encourage and aid in the reparation. Fundamentally, that approach is somewhat archaic. The body isn’t made of chemicals, it is made of cells. These cells are what is responsible for building you into you, and they are also responsible for repairing any damage to your body throughout your life.
Sometimes the human body encounters a severity of injury or disease that slows or halts its reparative functions; Regenerating this tissue becomes challenging or impossible without aid. Today, regenerating that tissue and encouraging the body’s own natural processes has never been easier. Stem Cell Therapy was designed to fill that gap and restore the body’s healing functions. Stem Cell Therapy uses progenitor cells to help treat or prevent a disease or condition. Stem cells have the ability to differentiate (change) into different cells and therefore the potential to regenerate or repair damaged tissue or organs once introduced into the body.
Stem Cells are the natural building blocks of life. They are remarkable in their ability to replicate and regenerate tissue. Your body has and has always had stem cells. Over time, you slowly and naturally lose the amount of stem cells in your body. As this number decreases, so too does your ability to heal quickly, fully, and properly. Couple that with the million other injuries and diseases that can diminish your natural stem cell stores and you are left with a body that is forced to rely on medications and surgery for aid.
Utilizing Stem Cells, we can achieve many things that were unobtainable until now.
Stem Cells Therapy:
- Outpatient procedure
- Minimal recovery time
- Applicable to a variety of disorders
- Safe, with minimal side effects
- Very little discomfort
- Natural, with no harsh chemicals or added medications
- Endorsed by many top doctors, athletes, and celebrities
- Effective at treating:
- chronic pain
- damaged tissue
- neurodegenerative disorders
- ...and more.
We have stepped into a very fascinating point in our history where we now have some control over our body’s decay. You no longer have to “just deal with it” or overmedicate yourself to feel semi-normal. Stem Cell Therapy gives us a miraculous tool that can be the solution you’ve been looking for!

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an injection of a patient’s own platelets derived from their own blood to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. This stimulates an increase in the number of growth factors and other reparative cells in the area which enhances the body’s own healing system to rebuild damaged soft tissues.
PRP Therapy has many amazing therapeutic properties. Many patients report an immediate reduction in pain. Injecting PRP into damaged tissues will stimulate your body to grow new, healthy cells and promote healing. Because the tissue growth factors are more concentrated in the prepared growth injections, damaged tissue heals much faster.
The procedure for PRP is relatively simple and involves separating the patient's plasma in a laboratory and then injecting the separated plasma into the site. Generally, the procedure is short and the recovery period is only a few days. Due to the healing nature of the PRP, downtime following an injection is very minimal.
PRP can be utilized across a number of applications. Some Examples include:
- Hair Loss
- Tendon Injuries
- Acute Injuries
- Post-Surgical Repair
- Rotator Cuff Injuries
- Knee Injuries
- and more…
Prolotherapy, or Proliferative Therapy is a regenerative joint injection or trigger point injection that is aimed at stimulating the body’s own healing processes to strengthen and repair damaged joints and/or connective tissue. Prolotherapy helps to stabilize the joint by initiating collagen and connective tissue production which aids in tightening ligaments and tendons which subsequently can improve stability and relieve pain.
Originally, the term used for this therapy was “sclerotherapy.” In the 1930’s when this treatment was discovered, it included both joint and vein injections. Today the term “prolotherapy” is used for joint, ligament and tendon injections, whereas “sclerotherapy” is used for the treatment of varicose veins, spider veins, hemorrhoids and other vascular abnormalities.
This therapy is a great low-cost option for pain reduction. While it doesn't have the capabilities of Stem Cell Therapy or PRP, prolotherapy can induce the body to heal more rapidly where administered.
IV Rejuvenation Therapy
Intravenous (IV) Rejuvenation Therapy has an incredible ability to deliver immediate hydration, vitamins, and powerful antioxidants directly into the body. Because the nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream, there is an optimal absorption rate.
IV Rejuvenation Therapy delivers vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly to the body which promote a wide range of healing and regenerative actions. These can be used to maintain wellness and also treat acute and chronic conditions. Benefits may include improvements in energy, mood, sleep, immunity, hydration, stress and muscle recovery.
Studies have been done showing that hydration can improve skin quality, clarity, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. In addition to the hydration results of IV Therapy, the powerful antioxidants used replace missing oxygen molecules which can improve inflammatory conditions.
For athletes, IV Therapy can be a huge addition to any training regimine. Often times, competitive athletes are made to stay within a particular weight class; this often results in depletion of calories, vitamins, and essential nutrients. This is particularly advantageous following the dry-out period of a weight cut.
Rejuvenation IV Therapy can be utilized across a number of applications. Some Examples include:
- Skin Clarity
- Inflammatory Disorders
- Athletic Optimization
- Oxygen Related Disorders
- Nutrient Replacement
- General Health Maintenance
- and more…
StemClear™ uses a process called microneedling that has been proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, pores, and improve general skin health and quality. Microneedling is a technique that uses small needles to cause physical trauma to the skin and initiate your body’s natural reparative cascade. This can be used in conjunction with PRP or Stem Cell Therapy to allow for improvements in wrinkles, scarring, hair loss, acne, discoloration, stretch marks, and loose skin.
Microneedling has been publicized under many names including microdermabrasion therapy, and vampire facelift; However, the latter is actually a slightly different form of microneedling combined with under the skin injections. StemClear™ is considered a much safer procedure as there is little risk of cosmetic misalignment.
StemClear™ uses the only FDA approved microneedling instrument called SkinPen™. Thousands of treatments have been done using the SkinPen™ with remarkable results.
StemClear™ can be utilized across a number of applications. Some Examples include:
- Skin Clarity
- Scar Reduction
- Wrinkles and Fine Lines
- Acne Marks
- Pore Size Reduction
- Skin Hydration
- and more…
