In recent years, regenerative therapy with mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), better known as stem cells, has become increasingly recognized, not only in the medical community, but also among patients seeking to repair and regenerate damaged tissue.
In general, MSCs are what give rise to all cells in the body. Below we will tell you what stem cells are and what are their benefits when using them within a treatment.
What are mesenchymal stem cells?
Mesenchymal stem cells are multipotent cells, which can self-renew and differentiate into any type of specialized cell to perform specific functions and make the body work properly.
These cells have 3 main actions:
1) modulate the immune system
2) have anti-inflammatory action
3) proliferative action.
These characteristics make them perfect for preventing, treating and/or controlling different diseases as well as slowing down the aging process.
Benefits of treatment with mesenchymal cells
Applications for the musculoskeletal system
Mesenchymal stem cells can differentiate into different tissues such as bone, muscle, cartilage and more, depending on the biochemical signals that our body is emitting at the time of applying them. They are used to treat diseases such as osteoarthritis in the joints, recent or chronic sports injuries, among other osteoarticular or tendon diseases, seeking to offer improvement and results more quickly or effectively vs using conventional drugs. For example, in people who haven´t had significant relief from physical and rehabilitative therapy, steroid injections, or joint replacement surgery, mesenchymal stem cell treatment helps provide symptom´s relief, prevent more serious disease, and stop disease´s progression. It´s also a treatment that can be carried out at any age and can distance the patient from more complex interventions.
Anti-age and beauty
Mesenchymal stem cells are used for skin and body treatments. Both to combat autoimmune diseases, different types of dermatitis, improve the skin´s appearance in areas with scars, as well as to delay or reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging. In addition, these cells are used in therapies to combat the signs of aging since they are mainly involved in the synthesis of collagen and elastin. From this treatment you can expect to reduce wrinkles on the skin, close the pores and help the skin itself activate the regeneration mechanisms to repair itself and have a healthier appearance. Positive results are also obtained when they are used in skin lesions due to burns or any process in which the skin is affected, waiting for the regeneration of the tissues, a controlled healing due to the anti-inflammatory action and preventing them from taking on a different skin color.
