Stem Cell Therapy
What is stem cell therapy? First of all we need to understand what stem cells are. Stem cells are simply cells that are able to change into other types of cells. The idea of stem cell therapy is that activated stem cells are placed in the body in order to help the body to regenerate cells that cannot be developed on their own.
Stem cells can divide and provide for the production of specialized cells, such as cardiac muscle cells, red blood cells and skin cells. These cells play a major role in the development of a human body.
Stem cells are generally located in embryos and within the cellular tissue of human adults. They are found in almost all tissues of an adult body, especially in the bone marrow and are usually in sleep mode, activated only when necessary.
The future of stem cell therapy
The potential of stem cell therapy is enormous, just think about the possibilities of the generation of healthy brain cells to combat the effects of Parkinson’s disease and dementia, or even to encourage the growth and re-employment of numerous areas of the body. Because the potential benefits of stem cell therapy are so great, there is a lot of research thrown into the precise effect of stem cells for human body.
The potential of stem cells is also seen in the cosmetic field, to prevent aging from the natural loss of collagen, help skin retains its volume and elasticity and the healing of scars.
There are already a number of products on the market that use stem cells as one of its ingredients or have the ability to activate them in your body in order to achieve a good cosmetic result. These are also available in injectable liquid form based on one’s body fat, better known as the “stem cell facelift”.
Also known as lipo-filling, this treatment have actually been around for quite a while before falling in popularity, although thanks to the focus on stem cells research, lipo-filling is now back as one of the most preferred filling treatments.
It works by removing fat cells from the body which will later be filtered in a laboratory. During the filtration, healthy cells distinguish themselves during the spin process of unhealthy cells, amongst which include stem cells that are activated by the centrifuge process from their sleep mode. These cells are then injected back into the skin, where the stem cells provide for wrinkle softening, the volume and reduction of scar tissue.
One of the most popular medical centres that provides stem cell therapy in KL, Malaysia is Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre.
