Stem Cell Therapy for Skin Diseases

Lichen Sclerosis

Lichen sclerosis is a chronic skin condition that causes white patches to develop on the skin. The condition usually impacts the genital area, and typically impacts women who are post-menopausal or girls who have not yet started menstruating. Causes of lichen sclerosis include trauma, genetics, infections, or autoimmune diseases. The white patches of the condition are uncomfortable and itchy. The disorder may also cause rashes and redness, and some lichen sclerosis patients bruise very easily. Treatments for the skin condition include steroids and moisturizers, but no treatments cure the condition or its symptoms completely.

Stem Cell Therapy for Lichen Sclerosis

Innovations Stem Cell Center treats lichen sclerosis with SVF stem cell therapy through IV and injection deployment. Once the stem cells have been deployed, they immediately go to work to heal damaged tissue. The stem cells repair damaged tissues just like they do in other areas of the body damaged by disease or injury- by regenerating cells to heal tissue and using growth factors that promote healing.

Pressure Ulcers

Pressure ulcers, also known as bedsores, are injuries that break down the skin and underlying tissue. Pressure ulcers develop because of prolonged pressure on the skin. This prolonged pressure interrupts the flow of oxygenated blood and nutrients to the skin, starving it from these elements that are critical for survival. The resulting wound can appear as discoloration or as a sore. These painful sores can be so severe that muscle or bone is exposed. Patients who are at risk of developing pressure are diabetics, patients with poor circulation, and individuals who are confined to beds for long periods of time. Pressure ulcers are treated following wound care protocols to speed healing. Pressure ulcers can take a long time to heal, leaving patients at risk for serious infection.

Cost of Stem Cell Treatments

The cost of the initial treatment ranges from $5,000 to $10,000. The range in cost is dependent on the complexity of delivering the cells back to you. For example, spine conditions require multiple physicians to deliver the cells back to your body and this requires an increase in cost as multiple doctors are involved in the procedure. For many people the initial treatment is all that is needed; however, for some conditions, subsequent treatments may be required and these are done at a reduced fee.
