I presented a paper on our use of intra-articular laser treatment to augment PRP injection for arthritic joints at a major medical conference in San Francisco on Jan. 27th. The laser improved results in patients who had no response to an initial injection of PRP. While most patients we treat with PRP do respond, some do not and face joint replacement surgery as their only other option. There is evidence that low level laser (laser that does not produce perceptible heat and has no known side effects) can improve the results of PRP and stem cell treatments.

FACIAL REJUVENATION PRP TREATMENT USING YOUR OWN GROWTH FACTORS FOUND TO WORK BETTER RATHER THAN “READYMADE” AS ANTI-AGING WRINKLE TREATMENT.
Microneedling using PRP (platelet rich plasma) obtained from a small blood draw is a proven relatively painless technique of opening pores to allow growth factors to penetrate deeply to reduce wrinkles and help rejuvenate skin. There are no injections and no cutting of skin.
Stem cell therapy is being used in every area of clinical medicine. The general area of autoimmune disorders is one of the most promising. While the tissue regenerative aspects of stem cell therapy garner the most attention, their immune-modulatory capabilities are at least as important. For reasons that are only partially clear, diabetes is becoming increasingly common. It requires strict long term care to minimize its effects including frequent insulin injections and often insulin pumps. These are time consuming, expensive, and limiting to patients. And they do no completely control its long term effects. Diabetes is a leading cause of both blindness and kidney disease for example. There are many areas of ongoing stem cell research to treat Diabetes. However a 2013 paper entitled "Targeting insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes via immune modulation of cord blood-derived multipotent stem cells (CB-SCs) in stem cell educator therapy: phase I/II clinical trial" by Yong Zhao et al. showed remarkable results from a brilliant and completely different use of stem cell therapy than any prior studies.
