Adult stem cells are fundamental for tissue homeostasis and repair throughout life. As we get older, not only does the number of stem cells in our bodies decrease, the ability of our stem cells to balance and regenerate declines. Stem cell loss and dysfunction is due to accumulation of toxic metabolites, DNA damage, accumulation of damaged proteins, and mitochondrial dysfunction. As such, these are the pathways that are targeted with stem cell therapy to restore function and counter the effects of aging.
rejuvenation & skin repair
The ability of our skin to employ repair mechanisms in response to damage decreases with age. With time, oxidative stress, ultraviolet radiation, and hormone exhaustion contribute to loss of elasticity and wrinkles, age spots, and skin fragility. Stem cell therapy targets molecular pathways that have degenerated with age to provide skin regeneration and rejuvenation.
Stem cell and cellular therapies have shown promising results for both male and female hair loss. By injecting stem cells into the hair follicles, the hair follicle bulb may be repaired and cells may be "woken up" to start producing hair again. When injected into the hair follicles, these stem cells encourage natural hair growth.
