We are an Integrative Wellness clinic that specializes in improving overall health, restoring vitality to our patients lives through bio-identical hormone optimization, weight loss, sexual rejuvenation, and non-invasive aesthetics. We have recently begun to utilize stem cell therapy in a regenerative process to maximize our patients results both aesthetically and physically. As we age our body’s ability to regenerate decreases rapidly, thus resulting in the aging process and progression of diseases.
So, if our bodies are no longer able to regenerate cells faster than our bodies are breaking them down, what do we do?
At Tampa Rejuvenation we utilize stem cell therapy in a variety of modalities, designed to improve and restore our appearance such as skin and hair, sexual health for both men and women as well as IV Therapy that may help with autoimmune and inflammation.
What is a stem cell? A stem cell is an undifferentiated cell that has the ability to turn into any type of cell our body needs – it can become lung tissue, connective tissue like what is found in the joints, and even heart tissue.
What kind of stem cell do you use? At Tampa Rejuvenation our practitioners use mesenchymal stem cells, or MSCs, which are designed to introduce a proliferation of healing properties to the site of damaged tissue, helping to speed the body’s natural healing process. These MSCs are found in the Wharton’s Jelly of the umbilical cord and are undifferentiated cells that have the capacity to change into any specific cell type in the body. These cells, once deployed to an area, can readily change into the cell type that is needed to repair.
What areas do you use stem cell for? We utilize stem cell therapy for aesthetic procedures such as hair restoration, to halt and reverse the progression of hair loss and restore the function of dormant hair follicles, and skin rejuvenation to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, restoring skins textures and luminosity. Sexual performance, in conjunction with the O-Rejuv and P-Rejuv, to maximize sexual performance, rejuvenating the area, and improving sensation and strength of orgasm. Stem cell can also be performed intravenously to work more internally as they seek areas of inflammation or compromised performance as MSCs are directed to the body’s cell signals that recruit them to the site of an injury. Once they reach this area, they dock and may begin repairing by releasing cytokines, growth factors and other components that are needed in the healing process.
Why would someone want to receive IV stem cell? Due to their regenerative nature, stem cells may be able to find areas of damage or compromised performance within the body and aide in restoring these areas. These stage 0 stem cells are actually able to go into the body and “remind” the pre-existing older cells to perform younger again. Simply put the highly efficient stem cells may remind your older cells to replicate at a faster pace – restoring their ability to regenerate thus slowing or reversing your aging process
How long do they last? Actual duration of improvement will vary from individual as all patients age differently. After treatment patients may continue to see improvement for up to 6 months due to the strength of their regenerative properties, for some the results may last for years.
Who can benefit from these therapies? Anyone looking to improve their skin quality, reverse hair loss, enhance sexual performance, and improve their overall health would benefit from stem cell therapy.
Is this therapy safe? Prior to a scheduled cesarean section, consenting mothers are screened and evaluated. Within thirty days of scheduled delivery the mother is serologically tested per the standards of the FDA and the American Association of Tissue Banks, to rule out any transmissible diseases or other contradictions. Once these reports are reviewed by the Medical Director or designee further filtration processes occur and the final product is analyzed for its growth factor and cytokine content. Products obtained are immunologically privileged, meaning the body will not reject, and adverse reaction is extremely rare.
