Stem Cell Treatment FAQs
Why stem cells?
Stem cells are the most powerful agent to heal damaged tissue and create new cells for skin regeneration. The serum utilizes stem cell technology to stimulate growth of dermal fibroblasts, which form new skin cells. The more fibroblasts that are available, the stronger and younger the skin looks and feels.
How does the serum work?
Freshly extracted bovine embryonic stem cells and human dermal fibroblast cells are combined in solution. As they interact, the cells secrete signaling factors--enzymes, mono and polysaccharides, proteins, and amino acids--which stimulate the growth of human dermal fibroblasts. These signaling factors will affect the growth of your own skin cells. They cannot trigger the growth of any other type of cell. These compounds go into the extracellular matrix, the connective tissue that feeds skin cells, not the cell itself.
The serum also contains vital nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, essential fats, enzymes and natural antioxidants, which, combined with the signaling factors have achieved a 71% growth of new skin fibroblasts in scientific experiments. Fibroblast growth occurs over a period of 144 hours after the application of the serum.
What is the process of skin regeneration?
As we age, normal cycles of tissue regeneration become compromised. Many theories exist as to why this happens, however the one that most experts and researchers agree on is the theory of Free Radical Damage or Oxidative Cellular Distress. Oxidative stress damages protein constituents that make up the genetic material in your body, making the DNA less efficient and less able to duplicate itself.
Since the same resources are utilized to regenerate heart, liver, and brain tissue, skin replication is not the body’s highest priority. The CryoStem serum enters the skin through trans-dermal absorption, mostly thru hair follicle and sebaceous glands. It ensures a concentrated and specific bank of resources which encourages the replication of your own skin cells.
Is this a safe treatment?
Yes. There are no side effects or risks with this treatment. The bovine stem cells are too large to be absorbed into the human body; the skin absorbs only the signaling factors and other nutrients. The serum is very specific and cannot cause harm or stimulate growth of any other type of cell. Foreign DNA does not enter the skin, and no genetic alteration or mutation occurs
Extensive clinical studies and tests have been conducted on the DNA Health Institute’s Cryostem Biological Cellular Therapy Serum and it meets strict consumer safety standards. The technology and system of delivery have been extensively evaluated by the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA), and received the agency's approval and registration in the year 2000.
What is the origin of the stem cells?
The stem cells are obtained from bovine embryonic fluid. A special herd of cows is raised under pristine and controlled conditions in France. In order to ensure the highest standards of health, the cows are free-range, organically fed, and receive no vaccines or hormones. The embryonic stem cells are extracted under absolutely sterile conditions and strict governmental supervision.
Are the cows harmed during the extraction process?
No. This process does not harm the animals. The extracted fluid is naturally replenished by fresh embryonic fluid. Dr. Noel Aguilar at the DNA Health Institute has always been at the forefront of animal and human rights. The complex extraction process is similar to human amniocentesis.
How many treatments do I need to see results?
The results are virtually immediate. There will be a change in the skin after the first session. The benefits from each treatment will progressively increase over a period of 144 hours (6 days) after each application. We recommend six treatments over a 70-90 day period. The number of treatments and time period may vary based on a person’s skin and health conditions.
How often do I repeat the CryoStem treatment?
It depends on your specific skin care needs. Usually a six-session treatment series will enable you to experience incredible results. After the series, you may choose to schedule booster treatments occasionally. Some individuals may want to repeat the full series as part of a preventative program. Results from the program will vary based on healthy lifestyle choices: diet, nutritional supplementation (including antioxidants), hydration, exercise, stress management, adequate rest, safe sun exposure, and protection from other environmental factors.
