Stem Cell Therapy for Orthopedic Injuries

As society becomes more informed about the chronic and acute healing process of musculoskeletal tissue injuries, the use of biological treatments becomes more widely accepted. One of these biological treatments, called stem cell therapy, is a new and promising treatment that has been found to reduce pain and improve mobility in patients with orthopedic conditions like arthritis without the need for surgery.

What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cell therapy is the treatment of illnesses using naturally occurring cells in the body that have the capability to differentiate (turn into different cell types) and promote tissue regeneration. One specific variety of stem cells used in orthopedic stem cell treatments is Mesenchymal, which can produce ligament, bone, cartilage, and tendon tissue. These cells emit chemicals (cytokines and growth factors) that decrease inflammation, inhibit tissue breakdown, and trigger cell repair.

Orthopedic Conditions Treatable with Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy has successfully been used to treat many injuries and diseases. Orthopedic conditions that have been treated with stem cell therapy include acute and chronic injuries of the muscle, tendon, cartilage, bone, and ligament. A few specific conditions that are candidates for stem cell therapy include:

  • Tendon Injuries like partial tears of the shoulder’s rotator cuff
  • Back pain caused by degenerative discs and facet joint
  • Arthritis of joints (like the hip, elbow, and knee) and osteoarthritis

Before you are considered a candidate for stem cell therapy, you will have to undergo an orthopedic evaluation, which often includes getting an x-ray and MRI scan. If you are healthy, you will most likely not need any other special laboratory testing.

MetroMD has the Latest Fillers for Lip Injections

We are in the age of the cosmetic fillers. It seems every month a new filler is available and designed to do something very unique. When we started it seemed there was only a couple injectable to choose from but now we have a variety. Many people ask what is the difference? Well, there are two major areas that separate these fillers from one another and that is their density (viscosity) as well as the amount of water they attracted (hydrophilic capabilities).

When it comes to lip injections we have noticed a great improvement in this area with some of the new fillers. When we inject the lips we want to use a filler that is soft and will mimic the tissue of the lips. Now we are in an era when we can choose that perfect filler that will do so. However, we also don’t want a filler that is too soft and will not allow us to augment the lips in the perfect way.

Clearly, choosing the right filler for the lips is an art. This is why it is important to only get injections with an expert injector who knows these differences between the different products. When you go in to get your injections make sure to ask lots of questions and also why the injector chose that specific product for the area being treated.

MetroMD Offers PRP Therapy for Knees in Los Angeles

Over the years MetroMD has been on the forefront of regenerative medicine. We have developed some of the latest protocols in cellular medicine, hormone replacement therapy and much more. One of these protocols is using patients own platelets to restore knee injuries to normal function.

MetroMD offers PRP therapy for knees by isolating a specific layer of a patient’s own blood for regenerative use. Typically 7-21ml of blood is isolated and then it is placed in a centrifuge to separate out the PRP layer. Once this layer is obtained it can be placed on sites to stimulate regeneration.

Of these sites knees is one of the most targeted. Injuries such as meniscus tear, ACL, PCL, or MCL tears can be treated. PRP is injected directly into the area that is damaged. This then stimulates the area to heal and ultimately restores anatomy and function.

Typically, 3-6 treatments are needed to treat a patient. These treatments are each done one month apart. After every treatment, the patient’s tissue should continue to regenerate.

Microneedling for Skin Maintenance

 

Microneedling for Skin Maintenance is a great treatment. Over the years we have done thousands of micro-needling treatments and with tremendous results. But did you know this is a treatment that can be used not only to correct problems but to also maintain the skin.

At MetroMD we recommend doing a light micro-needling treatment monthly. This is because our skin ages no matter what, we are exposed to sun damage, and the overall environmental stress on the skin is dramatic. Utilizing microneedling on a monthly basis can help rejuvenate the skin and prevent further damage in the future.

Microneedling works in two ways. One way is it actually helps exfoliate away damaged skin. The process itself breaks the top layer of skin and allows the body to exfoliate it away. This can help remove dead skin as well as damaged cells. Secondly, the controlled trauma caused by the micro needling stimulates new cells to form, collagen to be produced and overall enhances the skin.

This treatment is truly one of our favorites and everyone should see how this can change their skin over time. Doing this monthly is an amazing procedure to add to your monthly skin care.

Co2 Laser for Acne Scars

Co2 Laser for Acne Scars is an amazing treatment that MetroMD has been perfecting over the last 10 years. Co2 laser for acne scars can help treat unwanted scars. Many people have lived years with acne scars and have tried many treatments to help diminish their scars. These may include creams, facials, peels and more. However, MetroMD has found that Co2 Laser is our best treatment for acne scars.

 

MetroMD uses CO2 laser to resurface the skin and to diminish scars. Co2 Laser for Acne Scars is a great treatment especially when it is combined with a regenerative cellular product. MetroMD combines PRP, stem cells or amniotic fluid with our Co2 laser to ensure better tissue recovery and enhanced results.

Co2 laser treatment for acne scars works in the following way. First, the skin is numbed for 30min using a topical anesthetic. Then the treatment begins where the CO2 laser is fractionated and used to penetrate the skin. Microwells of the laser is formed in the skin causing a perforation which then stimulates the skin to heal. Over the next few weeks, the new skin is formed and ultimately acne scars are removed. However, at MetroMD we apply cells over the Co2 after the treatment. Since the CO2 laser is a type of burn to the skin we can utilize healing cells in the area to speed up recovery and maximize results. Cells such as stem cells are placed here and can help heal the tissue damage that is made by the CO2 laser. In other words, we are tricking your body into healing itself and removing the unwanted acne scars.

So if you suffer from acne scars. Try Co2 Laser for Acne Scars, it is a 21st-century solution to having better skin!

Sun Damage and Your Skin

As you may already know, excessive sun exposure can have some major effects on your skin. This includes wrinkles, sun spots, premature aging, and more. So if you’ve already spent years and years in the sun before you were aware of the harmful damage it could do, how do you fix the lines and wrinkles or sun spots? Let’s take a few steps back to see where it all began.

How does sunlight damage your skin?

UV rays can penetrate deep into the skin to damage the dermis. The dermis is made up of the stretchy tissues, therefore, it damages the elasticity which leads to aging skin and unwanted wrinkles. As for the top layers, the rays cause burning which can increase your chances of skin cancer. The fairer your skin, the less melanin you have to protect against these harmful rays. Whether or not you’re seeing the physical burning of sun damage, your skin is still at risk! So just because you didn’t get burned, doesn’t mean that you underlying skin isn’t being targeted.

What are the long-term effects of sun damage?

As we said, sun damage is clearly visible when you have a sunburn. The worst of it comes later in life after continuous exposure which leads to premature aging with wrinkles, brown spots, wart-like growths, and possibly skin cancer.

How can I protect my skin?

  • Wear hats to cover your face and neck
  • Wear sunscreen every day, even if you aren’t headed to the beach!
  • Bring a canopy for shade when you’re outside— at the park, on the beach, etc.

Can I reverse the effects of sun damage?

If you are at a stage where UV rays have caused wrinkling, sun spots, and other visible damage, there is a way to improve the look of your skin. Doctors today are looking to C02 Fractional Laser Resurfacing to rejuvenate the skin from sun damage and premature aging.

What is C02 Fractional Laser Resurfacing?

This non-surgical skin treatment uses pulsed, fractionated light energy to target areas deep within the skin to initiate the production of new collagen and elastin. This resurfacing technique will help reduce age spots, improve uneven coloration and texture, laxity, and more. After the treatment, your skin will tighten and smooth wrinkles, and reduce the appearance of spots caused by sun damage. As your skin continues to repair itself over time after the treatments, your results will continue to improve.

To reverse the effects of sun damage, C02 Fractional Laser Resurfacing may be the perfect solution for you. Contact MetroMD in Los Angeles, California to schedule your consultation and get a customized skin renewal treatment to fit your needs!
