Regenerative Cell Therapy for Hair Regrowth in McLean, Richmond and Virginia Beach

Regenerative cells are the foundation for every organ and tissue in your body. Regenerative cells are defined by 2 properties: First, they can self-regenerate or self-renew themselves and divide, giving rise to more Regenerative cells of the same kind. Second, they have the unique ability to develop into different types of cells. Therefore, they are called Pluripotent or Multipotent Progenitor Cells because they have this potential to develop into different cell types. It is the environment, or the tissue in which they are placed which ultimately determines what types of cells they will develop into. Regenerative cells can mature into various cells, tissues and organs of: Ectoderm (skin, nervous tissue), Mesoderm (cartilage, fat, bone) or Endoderm (muscle, gut, lung).

Embryonic and Adult Regenerative Cells

Regenerative cells can be categorized into 2 broad types of cells:

  • Embryonic
  • Adult Regenerative Cells.

Under these two types are different classes of regenerative cells. Embryonic regenerative cells are from embryos. These are derived from the early embryonic tissue and there is, of course, much controversy concerning ethical and moral issues for their use. Fetal or Umbilical regenerative cells are from the umbilical cords of newborns. They possess a unique regenerative potential and serve as a rich source of undifferentiated regenerative cells. Amniotic tissues have been described as immune privileged because they rarely evoke an immune response in the human body.

Autologous regenerative cells refer to those regenerative cells, which are obtained and given back to the same individual. They are the individuals’ own regenerative cells. These are the Adult Regenerative Cells, which are found in many tissue types. They act as the repair system of the body, replenishing and maintaining the bodys’ organs and tissues. Adult regenerative cells can be found in Peripheral Blood. Regenerative cells in Bone Marrow have been used in medicine for many years with miraculous results. However, regenerative cells in a persons’ bone marrow decrease in numbers with an increase in the person’s age. Another very rich source of adult regenerative cells is from a persons’ own Fat Cells. Research has shown that there are 2,000 times more regenerative cells in the same amount of fat as compared to bone marrow. A simple, minimally invasive liposuction procedure is performed in order to obtain the regenerative cells. Fat cells collected through a small liposuction procedure will yield, on average, 60 million regenerative cells.

Innovation: Harvesting and Administration

Innovative surgeons today are using regenerative cell harvesting and administration. In the near future regenerative cells will serve as the treatment of choice for many medical conditions. These surgeons are combining PRP (platelet rich plasma) taken from a persons’ blood sample and combining it with the acquired regenerative cells, because the PRP contains a multitude of Growth Factors and Cytokines needed for the regeneration process of healing. In any healing process, there is a sequence which the body follows in order to heal itself. The first place is called the inflammation phase. This is where all the inflammatory factors initiate the cascade of the healing process. This is then followed by the regenerative phase where the platelets supply the growth factors and proteins called cytokines which signal for the body’s own regenerative cells.

So the platelets by their growth factors and signaling cytokines help stimulate the regenerative cells, triggering the healing cascade new blood growth, collagen synthesis, new growth and new tissue regeneration.

Regenerative cell science shows much promise for the future treatment for a wide range of conditions and diseases. In the field of plastic and cosmetic surgery, examples include regenerative cells for hair growth, face lift, breast augmentation, acne, buttocks enhancement, penile enlargement, and anti-aging therapies. Regenerative cells for orthopedic conditions are showing amazing results and are well known for sports injuries and even advanced osteoarthritis. They are used for the knees, shoulders, hip, elbows, ankles, and back offering the possibility of eliminating the need for joint replacement surgery. Regenerative cells are helping general medical conditions such as congestive heart failure, heart attacks, lung and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, neurological diseases and diabetes.
