Stem Cell Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is stem cell regenerative medicine?

Stem cell regenerative medicine uses advanced bioengineering to help your body repair damaged cells and replace old, diseased cells with fresh, healthy new cells. Stem cell regenerative medicine enhances your body’s natural healing abilities by flooding your injured or damaged tissue with stem cells harvested from your own body.

Regenerative medicine treatments heal the condition causing your symptoms from within, unlike many other procedures designed to dull or mask your symptoms. For example, stem cell therapy helps your body create and repair the collagen and elastin fibers in your skin to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss. Or if Dr. Lee provides stem cell therapy for a painful joint, the treatment accelerates your body’s ability to repair damaged tissue.

How does stem cell therapy work?

Your stem cells — sometimes referred to as mesenchymal stem cells — are the most basic building blocks of your body. They are unique in that they can change into whatever type of cell your body needs to repair itself. When Dr. Lee injects stem cells into your body, they work with your existing cells, boosting their ability to repair and regenerate tissue.

What conditions can stem cell regenerative medicine treat?

At Woodstock Family Practice & Urgent Care, Dr. Lee offers stem cell therapy for anti-aging, hair restoration, and pain management. For example, if you have tendinitis or arthritis, stem cell therapy helps your body repair the damaged tissue, thus reducing your painful inflammation and stiffness.

Stem cells injected into your scalp stimulate your hair follicles and encourage new hair growth and restoration. When Dr. Lee injects stem cells into the skin on your face, neck, chest, or hands, they help your body create new collagen and elastin, reducing those frustrating fine lines and wrinkles, and leaving you with more youthful looking skin.

Am I a good candidate for stem cell therapy?

Stem cell regenerative medicine treatments are suitable if you’re in generally good health. If you have a painful condition such as arthritis, tendinitis, or muscle injuries, regenerative medicine can accelerate your healing process and reduce your pain.

Similarly, if you’re bothered by wrinkles, fine lines, and other frustrating signs of aging, Dr. Lee offers stem cell therapy to address your cosmetic concerns.
