Stem cells are immensely promising in helping us understand and treat a wide range of diseases, injuries, and medical conditions. The potential of these cells is apparent in the use of blood stem cells to treat blood diseases as well as in the use of stem cells for tissue grafts in the treatment of diseases or injury to the skin, bone, and eye surface.
Today, important clinical trials involving the use of stem cells in ongoing for various conditions, and researchers continue to explore new possibilities in the use of stem cells in medicine. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides stem cell IV therapy to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
Stem Cell IV Therapy: Benefits
It is vital to understand what makes stem cells so advantageous and offers stem cell IV therapy the ability to bring about this healing. Stem cells have the below-mentioned unique attributes, uses, and healing capabilities:
These cells are “unspecialized,” which means that stem cells can be taken from one area of the body and replaced into another one that is compromised. These cells have the ability to change into the precise type of cell required to help perform repair work.
Stem cells are unlike other cells in that they can divide and convert into another type of cell with a specialized function (a red blood cell, muscle cell, brain cell, heart cell, etc.)
As they contain natural growth factors, stem cells can bolster the body’s natural healing abilities and reduce pain without the need for pain-killing meds. They reproduce rapidly and can continue dividing in sites even after long durations of inactivity. Therefore, the advantages manifest within a short span of time.
A majority of patients need treatments for anywhere between a week to three months. However, many begin to experience a reduction in pain, enhanced mobility, and better general functionality within one to two IV treatments.
Can Be Used to Improve Cardiovascular Function
Cardiovascular diseases can lead to the heart tissue being deprived of oxygen and cause the formation of scar tissue, which alters blood flow/blood pressure.
Researchers indicate that stem cells can convert into those cells required to repair the heart and blood vessels due to the secretion of multiple growth factors. The various ways in which stem cell IV therapy is now being used and further researched in regards to heart disease recovery are:
- Assisting in the stimulation of the repair and growth of blood vessel tissue
- Producing specialized muscle cells of the heart to develop new tissue
- Reducing the formation of scar tissue, assisting in the restoration of blood supply and blood pressure capacity
- Decreasing overstretching of cardiac cells, which helps restore normal cardiac output and prevents heart failure
- Enhancing the development of new capillaries
Helps Heal Wounds and Incisions
According to research studies, stem cell IV treatments can help enhance the development of healthy new skin tissue, improve collagen generation, promote hair growth after loss or incisions, and help replace scar tissue with newly developed healthy tissue.
Stem cells help facilitate wound healing in various ways, including by enhancing the concentrations of collagen in the skin, which constricts as it matures and thereby fortified and tightens the damaged sites.
This same mechanism is also useful in the treatment of connective tissue injuries pertaining to cartilage/collagen loss, such as those caused by osteoporosis or overuse affecting tendons or ligaments.
