Where do the stem cells come from?
We utilize the highest quality mesenchymal stem cells and regenerative cytokines that are procured from birthing tissue from carefully screened healthy live deliveries. All MATRIX’s regenerative products are in accordance with FDA rule 361 and the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) regulations & standards.
What can stem cells be used to treat?
Stem cells can be used to treat many areas in the body that are damaged or have inadequate tissue. Newly injected mesenchymal stem cells can differentiate to become different types of tissue and cells in the body. They have been shown to be effective at treating hair loss, arthritis, knee pain, hip injuries, joint pain, erectile dysfunction, vaginal dryness, skin aging, collagen loss, plantar fasciitis, ligament injuries, tendon injuries, hamstring injuries and many other conditions.
Is stem cell therapy safe?
The products are rigorously tested to FDA guidelines. Thousands of patients have used these regenerative therapies with no adverse effects.
When will I see the benefits?
It varies with everyone, but you could see noticeable changes in a few short weeks that continue for several weeks to months as the stem cells and cytokines begin work repairing the body. Expect to see the greatest results after 3-6 months.
How long do the procedures take?
Most procedures can be completed in less the 60 minutes.
Do the procedures hurt?
Therapy with lasers and stem cells is non-surgical and minimally invasive so you shouldn’t experience much discomfort. If you are concerned about pain with any of the procedures, the provider can give you something to make most procedures more comfortable.
When can I resume normal activity?
Recovery time can vary depending upon the type of procedure you have done. If you were given stem cells as part of your regenerative therapy, will need to avoid strenuous activity for at least 1-2 weeks to give them the opportunity to regenerate the treated areas in your body. The doctor will address the special needs of your situation with post procedure instructions.
