What is cell rejuvenation? It is fashionable to be beautiful, slender, radiating health. Just a few years ago a was doing myself Botox injections, today, a new trend in fashion - the stem cells.
The primary human cells is stem cells. They are formed immediately after conception in a fertilized egg. The ability to become any type of cell is their main distinctive quality. Stem cells of the embryo while it grows, form the brain, the liver, stomach, heart. Even after the birth in the child's still a lot of them, but every year them becomes less, to 20 years in humans, almost no stem cells. It's a scientifically proven fact. But adults these cells is also needed – they always replace the affected in case of disease of any organ. Throughout life bodies becomes much more diseases, but stem cells are reduced, so the person looks older.
Breakthrough in cell biology has occurred in 1998, when the US scientists were able to identify and clone lines of human embryonic stem cells. Then cell biology began to develop in two ways:
How is the stem cell rejuvenation?
In Russia there are no restrictions on the use of embryonic stem cells, therefore, cell therapy is everywhere. Any cosmetic salon mentioned in your price list stem cells. But in practice, this injection of extracts from tissues of embryos, but they can cause allergic reactions and even rejection. And if the procedure is performed not in the laboratory, there is a risk that the cellular material could be contaminated.
In Russia the new technology of stem cell injections actively test on people in the West almost all of the experiments conducted on animals. Stem cells are used increasingly, but what will be the effect in the future, is not yet known. None of the scientists could not give a forecast for the next 10-20 years, because until the end of scope has not been studied. While stem cell therapy considered alternative medicine. What's next, we'll see.
Now the Russian beauty centers use several types of stem cells:
The stem cell rejuvenation is very popular.
Depending on the chosen method, the effect of injection of cell material begins to appear only in 1-3 months. And why doctors do not they say about the visual effects of rejuvenation, they focus on improving the well-being of patients. The person just pays the money, they give him an injection and he is waiting for changes for three months. In practice, the patient does not see much change in the body, the face, but feels that the body behaves differently: darken hair, appears visual acuity, sleep for 5-6 hours.
Some patients reported that within a month began to read without glasses, disappeared General fatigue of the body, began to disappear wrinkles. But those who talked about such changes a month, usually make the complex procedure of rejuvenation, which includes mesotherapy with injections to smooth the skin. In all cases, patients had confidence in the hospital and doctors, about the consequences in the future thought. How much is stem cell treatment?
All the researchers agreed that the effect of the cell injection lasts a year, after this period the procedure is best repeated. As they say, if every 1.5 years to turn to specialists for cellular injection, the person will minimally be able to live up to 150 years. It is fair to say that stem cell rejuvenation is a very expensive procedure, and do it 1 time in 1.5 years is very costly. It costs a minimum of 17 thousand euros, and in this case, if the patient is young, healthy and just wants to slow down the aging process. The older people and the more diseases, the more expensive it will be cell therapy, due to the fact that he will need more stem cells.
If the young organism to maintain tone need about 20-35 million cells, a lady approaching retirement age with a bunch of diseases may not be sufficient and 200 million. According to experts, such a high price is justified, because the cultivation of cells is a process that requires knowledge and high technology, and therefore very expensive. If you offer these procedures at a lower price, it is likely that these drugs have nothing to do with stem cells.
There are, however, state research institutions, there are injections cheaper, but the price still starts from 5 thousand US dollars. They use stem cells from bone marrow. Also in scientific institutions and use a special growth factors cell – peptides. Because stem cells with the introduction of can not find the damaged organ and show them the way proteins, which include the cells of the body, forcing her to work and to seek means of self-recovery.
Those patients who took courses of rejuvenation with stem cells in scientific research institutions, noted that, after three weeks, disappeared fatigue, increased body tone, the visual acuity was slightly decreased wrinkles, men showed an increased libido and improved potency. As can be seen, the results of therapy for revitalization of the body and in cosmetic clinics, and research institutes are the same, although the techniques they are completely different.
In the Institute using a special protein-a growth factor for cells in treatment rooms – additional mesotherapy. All of these additional injections and treatments, according to doctors, aims to increase the effect due to the lack of the result of stem cell treatment since mesotherapy and the extra protein has long been known as a great and effective way to smooth wrinkles.
Experts in cell therapy silent about whether negative results or even no result. And there are such cases, patients do not notice any change even after 3-6 months, but neither the clinic nor the NII did not reimburse expenses, as they do not guarantee that the body will find the strength to recover.
Despite the fact that there are positive results, doctors and the scientific community is extremely skeptical of this therapy. Many believe that, Yes, the discovery of stem cells and their cultivation is the largest discovery in genetics from the time of decoding the structure of DNA, but it is not necessary to use for everyone, but only to treat very serious diseases. Stem cells contain encrypted information about the whole organism, so one can grow not only a colony of cells, but even a body.
Therefore, to use this technology for profit is unacceptable because it is not fully understood and conduct clinical research and experiments. Currently, in addition to cosmetic procedures, medical clinics offer treatment for serious diseases injections with stem cells. In the price lists it is written that diabetes, cancer can be treated with injections. But evidence on recovered no. On the contrary, the opinions of experts that the rejuvenation of stem cells causing cancer.
In the treatment of ischemic diseases, hormonal and immune diseases, certain disabilities in children are great help stem cells. At the end of 2015, American scientists had saved the life of a boy who got a heart attack. Took his own stem cells and injected into the body. There are positive results of cell therapy in the treatment of Parkinson's disease, arthritis, arthrosis, rheumatism. Of course, given the scientific advances, the injection of stem cells just to rejuvenate dull.
More depressing is the fact that the budget does not include the offence of financing for the development of cell biology and development of methods for the treatment of severe diseases in leading research institutes and laboratories in Russia. Private clinics developments do not, they usually work with for profit. Therefore, in Russia the cellular technology associated only with the procedure of rejuvenation, unlike the West, where he is actively funded by the research cell technologies in the treatment of severe diseases.
In Russia at present, quite a few clinics offer anti-aging treatments with stem cells. But it is necessary to understand whether these are the cells. Often used just cellular material. Therefore, before deciding on the procedure, you need to gather more information about the clinic, about her specialization, if she has a lab, if there are any, how they work, how effective they are working to try to find patients who have already received these treatments.
Then on to the clinic to ask to provide "Cell sheet" certifying that in stem cells there is no viruses. Before the introduction of cells you have to offer for screening. Even if the procedure is successful, the effect you can see only 1-3 months and not on the face or body, and in the General condition of the body. Will feel cheerful, energized. But this may not happen, because usually clinics do not take any responsibility for the consequences of rejuvenating stem cells. Guarantee no clinics or research institutes do not provide.
