“A NEW way to think about health & beauty”
The benefits of Personal Cell Sciences extend far beyond custom tailored products and beautiful skin. As an exclusive benefit to U Autologous clients, Personal Cell Sciences cryopreserves a clinical grade portion of your adult stem cells for your future medical needs.
Having a portion of your adult stem cells stored also allows you to take advantage of additional future stem cell based product offerings, eliminating the need for an additional appointment with a physician.
There is a paradigm shift occurring in healthcare towards Personalized and Regenerative Medicine. One size-fits-all treatments will be a thing of the past as scientists and physicians create customized treatments for diseases and illnesses using revolutionary methods largely fueled by adult stem cell therapy.
WHY STORE TODAY?
MAXIMUM REGENERATIVE POTENTIAL
Adult Stem Cells found throughout the body serve as the maintenance and repair system for all tissues and organs. Our bodies have a limited number of stem cells. Over time, they become damaged and lose their potential to change into the different cell types that regenerate our organs and tissues. Ongoing cellular damage not only reduces regenerative potential, it also puts stem cells into a state of premature senescence, meaning they no longer divide. The effect of this damage is twofold; First, damaged Adult Stem Cells cannot properly maintain the tissues in which they reside; Second, if these damaged cells were extracted and used for therapy, the cells would not perform as well as younger, undamaged cells.
CELL AGING & DNA DAMAGE
Like all cells, Adult Stem Cells are comprised of chromosomes and sequences of DNA. As we age, our cells are subject to oxidative stress from external and internal factors, which amount to accumulated cellular toxicity. At the ends of chromosomes are protective caps called telomeres, which slow the deterioration of DNA. Every day that we grow older, cells divide and the telomere end caps diminish, making our DNA susceptible to damage and mutation. The link between telomere length and cellular damage reminds us of the cellular age limits of each of our cells. Every day that we age is a day that cannot be reversed. Cryogenic storage can “halt aging” and ensure that the collected cells stay in their pristine state until needed.
PERSONAL STORED RESOURCE
In the event that you become ill with a disease amenable to an adult stem cell treatment and do not have a stored sample, you may require a matching donor transplant. Finding a transplant is time consuming and expensive. If one is successful in finding a donor there still may be complications due to cellular rejection because the tissue is not an identical DNA match.
Put your mind at ease knowing that you have your own stored adult stem cell sample available for the emerging therapies of the future — a resource that is your own and has no risk of cellular rejection. Cellular therapy is the future of Personalized and Regenerative Medicine; your stored cells will enable you to take advantage of all the developments taking place today.
