Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF)

Rejuvenate, regenerate, and repair damaged tissues throughout the body using a potent purified stem cell treatment.

At Stem Cell Doctors of Beverly Hills, we mainly source stem cells directly from your fat. In a sterile laboratory environment, we expose the extracted adipose-derived fat to an enzyme that frees the stem cells from the adipose (fat). The result is a powerful solution of stem cells and growth factors—called stromal vascular fraction (SVF) or pure stem cells⁠—that can help rejuvenate and repair damaged tissues throughout the body. 

Purified Stem Cells

We use the latest technology to harvest the highest number of regenerative cells and growth factors from a small amount of your adipose (fat) tissue. These stem cells are then concentrated and purified by a special enzymatic process. They can be given back to you by either an intravenous infusion or a direct injection into injured joints or other damaged areas.

The advantages of using SVF, also known as fat stem cells, include:

  • You don’t have to worry about your body rejecting the stem cells as they are derived from your own fat.
  • Fat is easy to access and readily available all over the body.
  • Extract involves minor liposuction with minimal pain and no downtime required.

SVF is not used to treat, diagnose, or cure any disease as a first-line treatment. However, SVF has the potential to treat a wide range of diseases. If a first-line therapy either fails to resolve the symptoms or produces intolerable side effects, you may then elect investigational modalities of treatment, such as SVF infusion therapy.

SVF Healing Benefits

When we inject SVF into an area of tissue injury or as a full-body infusion, these powerful healing cells can help:

  • Reduce inflammation.
  • Alter abnormal immune responses.
  • Reduce scarring.
  • Stimulate the growth of new blood vessels for better blood flow.
  • Prevent further or premature cell and tissue death.
  • Repair damaged tissue or turn into replacement tissue.
  • Activate stem cells already present in the body for an increased healing effect

SVF Combination Therapy Potential

Studies have shown that SVF and umbilical cord stem cell (UCST) infusions may fight against conditions associated with aging, improve many chronic diseases, and give the patient an energy boost with feelings of improved wellness. The stem cells migrate throughout the body to areas of injury or disease and stimulate local stem cells to heal. Multiple sclerosis, autoimmune diseases, and other chronic illnesses may improve with systemic stem cell injections.

These infusions are considered experimental and are not used as a first-line treatment.

Stem cell therapy, a form of regenerative medicine, has grabbed the attention of doctors and scientists alike with its power to heal damaged tissue, reduce inflammation, and jumpstart the healing process. The most common stem cell-based therapy is bone marrow transplantation, which has been used for decades. In aesthetic medicines, stem cell therapy offers patients a chance to see and feel tangible results without undergoing expensive and invasive plastic surgery.

At Stem Cell Doctors of Beverly Hills, we offer an array of regenerative stem cell treatments—from infusions, injections, and combination treatments. Our powerful therapies can be combined and personalized depending on your needs and goals. These treatments can help improve the overall appearance of your skin, reduce the look of scars, minimize the effects of aging, jumpstart hair growth, enhance female sexual wellness, improve erectile dysfunction, and more.

What are Stem Cells?

Stem cells are the building blocks from which all repair, regeneration, and healing of the body happens. They act as the body’s very own internal repair system. And they are the foundation of cell development in living organisms.

  • Stem cells have a UNIQUE properties that set them apart from other kinds of cells
  • Stem cells can DEVELOP into different types of cells
  • Stem cells can REGENERATE to replace damaged cells
  • Stem cells can REPLICATE many times for long period

Types of Stem Cells Available

We can use either adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells harvest from your body or lab-provided Wharton’s jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells (umbilical cord stem cell). It’s also possible to use both stem cell types, depending on your treatment needs and goals.

The umbilical cord stem cells we use are obtained from newborns by a licensed laboratory with full permission from the family. Wharton’s jelly is the gelatinous tissue of the cord surrounding its vascular structures which contains numerous stem cells. The stem cells are broken down and their healing factors are then prepared, stored, and standardized.

All cord tissue has been tested to make sure that no diseases are present or could be transmitted. It can be injected locally or infused. No negative immune response occurs, since we do not use stem cell cord blood and since the cells are so young. Therefore, the patient will not get antibodies that would prevent rejection of future stem cells or of a transplantation if needed. The stem cells can then be injected into damaged areas or infused throughout the body.

How Do They Work?

Adipose (fatty) tissue has recently emerged as an attractive source for obtaining stem cells because it can be easily collected and is enriched with many different stem cell populations, including mesenchymal stem cells.

Stem cells are found in small numbers in most adult tissues, with a great abundance in bone marrow and fat. Studies have shown that both bone marrow and fat-derived stem cells are equally effective for regenerative therapies and both have the potential to differentiate into mature functional cartilage. However, stem cells from fat are 500 to 2500 times more plentiful and much easier to obtain.

When placed in areas of inflammation, scarring, or disease, stem cells can help restore damaged tissues. Researchers are still unclear as to how exactly stem cells go on to repair and replace tissues damaged by disease, trauma, or congenital conditions. However, they do know they release exosomes and other chemicals to stimulate other cells to remodel tissue, produce collagen, increase blood vessel growth, and regenerate nerves. The stem cells also have the power to replicate and stimulate other stem cells to act.

What is SVF, Nanofat and PRP?

  • SVF is the combination of different adult cells with various growth factors and a structural framework. It can be mechanically isolated for local injection or enzymatically purified for intravenous injection.
  • NANOFAT  is emulsified, liquefied fat that contains stem cells, growth factors, cytokines, and other substances that promote healing and regeneration. It can be introduced by local injection into tissues.
  • PRP is plasma containing a high concentration of platelets that is obtained by a simple blood draw. Stem Cell Doctors of Beverly Hills uses a higher-platelet concentration than typical PRP injection which should make it more effective.

What Are Some Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy?

At Stem Cell Doctors of Beverly Hills, stem cells are not used to treat, diagnose, or cure any disease. Rather we leverage the regenerative power of stem cells to address aesthetic and wellness issues. Some of our patients have benefited from stem cell therapy in the following ways:

  • Improvement of skin’s appearance, including minimizing scars and wrinkles, reducing hyperpigmentation, and more.
  • Increased formation of new blood vessels that regenerate and improve damaged tissues, including injured joints.
  • Restored and spurred new hair growth in men and women.
  • Helped improved vaginal dryness and discomfort, urinary incontinence, and dysfunction.
  • Improved overall vascular function, nerve sensitivity in the penis, and erectile dysfunction.
  • Procedures are safe and essentially painless, with a quick recovery time and little downtime.

Latest Innovative Stem Cell Technology

We use the latest technology, that we have helped develop, to extract the highest number of stem and regenerative cells with growth factors from the smallest amount of adipose (fat) tissue harvest. Stem cell sample is extracted by minor liposuction and processed in a lab setting then given back to you by either an intravenous infusion or direct injection into the area of concern. This usually takes no longer than two hours.

The Stem Cell Doctors of Beverly Hills are among a handful of physicians trained in the most advanced stem cell extraction and isolation techniques available in the United States. We are able to offer this modern and superior technique along with advanced cell-based treatments to achieve noticeable results.

In most cases, we use all-natural cells and growth factors from your body without any foreign or donated tissues and cells. This technique allows us to isolate the multiple stem cell types without other tissue from your own fat, which can then be intravenously injected throughout your body.

Infusions can alternatively be performed with umbilical cord stem cells. These stem cells may be more effective in many patients due to the potency of the young stem cells of a newborn. Studies have shown that your own or umbilical stem cell IV infusions may fight against aging, improve many systemic diseases and conditions, and give you an energy boost.

All procedures are done according to strict FDA government regulations and all protocols used in this process are within strict guidelines set forth by the Global Alliance of Regenerative Medicine USA (GARM Regenerative Medicine USA). It is an internationally recognized organization in the field of regenerative medicine that approves both stem and stromal cell-based and bio-cellular therapies for a number of health conditions.

The Future of Stem Cell Therapy Is Promising

The use of stem cell technology is changing the trajectory of medical science. New, life-saving medical treatments have afforded doctors and medical professionals the opportunity to cure or manage conditions once considered untreatable. Perhaps the best known treatment using adult stem cells is bone marrow transplantation. Other treatments aimed at reversing brain disorders and spinal cord injuries have shown promise.

Platelets, a primary healing component of plasma in addition to the multiple growth factors,  normally responds to injured tissue by clotting the blood and releasing more growth factors that also aid in healing. Treatments to muscle and ligament injuries have been done using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for a while now. Further research is being done regarding its ability to help with inflammation and arthritis.

Acoustic shockwave therapy (SWT) is  also being used to stimulate stem cells to replicate, release growth factors, and increase formation of new blood vessels and nerves. It has shown promise in treating muscle and joint injuries, scars, open wounds, and erectile dysfunction.
