Nurture Your Skin with the Amazing Power of Stem Cell Therapy in Boulder, CO Your stem cells are your body’s natural healing cells. They are recruited by chemical signals emitted by damaged tissues to repair and regenerate your damaged cells. Stem cells derived from your own tissues may well be the next major advance in medicine. Dr. Levine has the technology to produce a solution rich with your own stem cells. Under investigational protocols, these can be deployed to treat a number of degenerative conditions and diseases.Stem cells are tiny “progenitor” cells. They have the potential to recognize tissue injury and repair injured cells. In the right environment, these stem cells can change (differentiate) into bone, cartilage, muscle, fat, collagen, neural tissue, blood vessels, and even some organs. Stem cells may also effect healing by secreting special chemical messengers that repair damaged tissue.Dr. Levine specializes in the use of fat derived stem cells. With the current technology, he can harvest your own fat cells under a local anesthetic, break down the collagen that binds the fat and stem cells, and then separate out a solution rich in your own stem cells. Fat can be harvested from any area on your body that has an adequate fat supply, but we prefer to harvest it from the areas that will give you the best cosmetic result. The mini-liposuction, done under local anesthesia, takes less than twenty minutes. This procedure is done under strict sterility, and the processing of the cells is done under a completely closed system that is not even exposed to air. Viable cells are then counted and photographed for your record. The cells are then injected according to the most appropriate route. This is called “deployment.” Because it’s your own DNA material, there can be no rejection. A solution rich with your tiny stem cells are administered through injection into tissues, joints, arteries, or veins. The entire procedure takes less than two hours.
