Are Stem Cell Treatments Only for Joint Pain?

We’ve only just begun to understand the myriad ways in which stem cells are capable of improving our lives. One of the most common uses of stem cells is to repair damaged joints and relieve pain, but that’s just one powerful use of these little miracle cells. At Trilogy Medical & Aesthetics, we’re big believers in the potency and potential of stem cell treatments, both as a treatment on its own and as an enhancement to other procedures. We’ve only just begun to explore the possibilities stem cells have for our health and wellbeing.

Stem Cell Treatments at Trilogy Medical & Aesthetics in Santa Cruz

Skin Resurfacing with Stem Cells

Stem cells have a simple mandate: repair damaged tissues and create new cells. They have a vast potential to enhance human health and advance the future of medicine. Stem cell therapy is one of Trilogy Medical & Aesthetics’ most powerful treatments for a variety of conditions. Our undifferentiated pluripotent stem cells are harvested from the placenta and contain no DNA from either baby or mother. They are, essentially, a clean slate, capable of mirroring surrounding cells and becoming new tissues in virtually any system within the body. One of their most unique uses is the enhancement of skin resurfacing treatments, such as our non-surgical facelift procedure using the Erbium laser. Applied after the ablative laser removes damaged and dead cells of the top layer of the skin, stem cells help speed healing of the micro-injuries created by the cool laser for reduced redness and swelling, boosted results, and renewed, touchably soft, beautiful skin.

Stem Cells and Hair Restoration

For those experiencing thinning hair and hair loss, hair restoration with stem cells is a promising non-surgical solution to restore the quantity and thickness of the patient’s hair. Because stem cells copy the cells around the injection site, it’s possible to combat thinning hair with them. The growth factors naturally occurring with amniotic stem cells can create keratin, the protein that makes up hair follicles. Stem cells can also repair damaged follicles while also enriching the scalp to restore where your existing hair grows. After 3-4 months, patients see noticeable regrowth in balding and thinning patches, with continued improvements for up to a year.

Am I a Good Candidate for Stem Cell Treatments?

Because stem cells “blanks” are derived from human cells that can become the reparative tissue you require, there are few reasons a patient isn’t a good candidate. These cells will connect with your body’s surrounding tissue and replicate themselves. This is so your body has no reason to register them as foreign bodies. Your complimentary consultation at Trilogy Medical & Aesthetics can help you determine the best approach to your stem cell therapy treatment for maximum outcomes.

The human body is amazing, and stem cell therapy is evidence of that. While stem cells are a fantastic treatment for joint pain, that’s not all they’re capable of. At Trilogy Medical & Aesthetics, Dr. Lester subscribes to an Integrative Medicine approach that treats the whole person, not just body parts or symptoms. His holistic approach combines Homeopathic and Western medicines for a compassionate, and complete approach to your whole health and wellness.

I want to let you know how much the last treatment has improved a variety of issues that I had. I am so impressed with how this just eased away my ailments. Dr. Lester’s treatment is such a wholesome, easy way to deal with what I was experiencing.”*
