Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What can stem cell therapy treat?

Stem cell therapy is ideal for resolving many of those aesthetic imperfections and pain-causing conditions you develop as you age since just a few simple injections can simulate new tissue production. The breakthrough science behind stem cell therapy can:

  • Boost collagen production
  • Enhance tissue repair
  • Repair old scars, like acne scars
  • Smooth out lines and wrinkles

No matter what it is about your skin that bothers you, chances are, stem cell therapy might be just the right solution. You can get stem cell injections in your face, décolleté, or another area that’s starting to show your age.

Plus, musculoskeletal stem cell injections promote healing after sports and athletic injuries, including ligament sprains, as well as muscle or tendon strains. These regenerative injections can even speed up healing after an injury or surgery, or minimize pain if you have a spine disorder.

You should also consider stem cell therapy to minimize inflammation related to degenerative arthritis of major joints, including knees, hips, and shoulders.

How does stem cell therapy work?

You have stem cells all over your body — they’re highly concentrated in bone marrow. What makes stem cells special is that these age-defying cells can regenerate healthy cells and repair areas where you have old, damaged, or diseased tissues. At Integrity Aesthetics MD, Dr. Shortz specializes in exosome stem cell therapy.

Exosomes are basically the powerhouses of stem cells. They contain specialized genes called mRNA that are needed to make proteins. When they’re injected, exosomes immediately stimulate a cascade of processes that help surrounding tissues repair and heal. Exosomes are unique in that they adapt to their surroundings and create new cells and tissues that precisely match tissues nearby.

When does stem cell therapy start working?

It takes time for you to truly see and feel the benefits of your exosome stem cell therapy treatment from Integrity Aesthetics MD. But rest assured, those powerful cells are busy at work. You can start noticing an improvement in your treatment area in as little as three to four weeks, with continuing improvements day after day.

For optimal results, Dr. Shortz could recommend a package of stem cell therapy treatments or annual follow-up visits to help rejuvenate your skin and further promote healing.
