Stem Cell Therapy In Luxxo Wellness

As a leading wellness centre in KL, Luxxo Wellness offers various services - including stem cell therapy. As a popular therapy in regenerative medicine, it provides your body with new stem cells to replace lost and damaged cells, which delivers numerous benefits.

What Are Stem Cells?

Stem cells are like the raw material i n our bodies. They can replicate into many cells, and each can turn into different types of specialized cells that play a specific role - like cartilage, blood, nerve, muscle, skin cells, among others. Very flexible indeed - like a multi-purpose worker bosses love. Unfortunately, over time, stem cells in our body will reduce due to many environmental factors like lifestyle, age, diseases and many more. Hence, infusion of stem cells into the body has been gaining popularity; as numerous researches shown that similar effect can be yielded.

Advantages Of Stem Cell Therapy In Malaysia

Stem cell therapy is a popular choice among our clients. Many see short- and long-term benefits.

    1) Aid Healing From Injuries

    In recent years, stem cell therapy has become more common among celebrities and professional athletes to speed up healing from nagging injuries and managing chronic pain. Some fans of the stem cell therapy include Madonna, Cristiano Ronaldo, Tiger Woods, Michael Schumacher and Datuk Lee Chong Wei. The infusion of stem cell can help boost recovery of localized wound, by regenerating damaged cells at the site of injury. To many, it is a safer alternative to surgery and helps in long-term recovery.

    2) Skin Rejuvenation

    Aging causes the production of collagen to slow down drastically, leading to visible signs of aging on the skin. A study shown stem cell significantly increased epidermal thickness and skin evenness, which means the skin gets thicker and stronger to resist external stressors. Participants also found pores, superficial wrinkles and pigmentation became less visible [1]. Dr. Eve Lupenko, a board certified Dermatologist at Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery in New York City said “Stem cell have the potential to repair skin cells, and they also protect your skin from external factors and create a more youthful look. They go into the skin’s cellular level, and they are able to deliver moisture and reparative agents to where they need to go.” Seems to be more promising than skincare, don’t you think?

    3) Repair Brain Damage And Restore Cognitive Function

    Stem cells have the ability to regenerate and repair organs, this therapy can be a great help in slowing down the aging process, which includes treating diseases associated with older age. That includes neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)[2]. Stem cell therapy was shown to repair brain damage and improve memory function in mice with conditions identical to human strokes and dementia, a new UCLA study finds[3].

    4) Potential Treatment Of Chronic Diseases


    Inflammation, sometimes referred to as “chronic inflammation”, cannot always be felt, but increases as we age. This inflammation can lead to muscle and joint pain, causing organs not to function correctly, and increase the risk of getting chronic diseases, which include diabetes, kidney diseases and cardiovascular diseases. Stem cell infusion has been used widely into reducing inflammation related symptoms. It is applied to alleviate inflammatory diseases, such as colitis, pancreatitis, sepsis and focal cerebral ischemia [4]. Besides, stem cell therapy is also able to reduce synovial inflammation which is linked to osteoarthritis. Currently, stem cell therapy is also used clinically as an effective cure for blood-related diseases such as leukemia and lymphoma. Stem cell not only replaces damaged cells; it can also stimulate new bone marrow growth and restore the immune system. For patients with lymphoma, stem cell therapy might even reduce relapse risk. Patients in the early stages of diabetes also may be among the best candidates for stem cell treatment. A study shown after 6 months of stem cell treatment, the insulin dosage and HbA1c measurements for all the patients demonstrated significant improvement [5]. For those with higher risk of chronic diseases, stem cell therapy can also be used as a preventive step. Making sure damaged cells are being replaced in a healthy rate is key to having optimal organ function.
     

    5) Increase Energy Levels And Stamina


    Mitochondria are components in cells that have a critical role in energy production. When massive numbers of stem cells are infused into the body, they can turn into healthy mitochondria to replace dysfunctional mitochondria. The influx of new mitochondria will then provide fuel for our existing cells [6]. It allows the body to perform at a better and more efficient rate at a cellular level. Processes like brain function, cell repair, digestion, excretion and more all begin to work more effectively. Therefore, within hours after completing stem cell therapy, a person can feel much more energized. It is the stem cells working its charm.
