What Is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative Medicine is a revolutionary field that revolves around the restoration and rejuvenation of human cells, tissues, and organs. Specifically in wound healing, its goal is to activate or revive the body’s inherent wound-healing abilities. Biological therapies (also known as biologics) are a subset of regenerative therapies, that harness naturally occurring cells or substances to enhance the body’s reparative powers. By leveraging these innovative approaches, Wound and Burn Centers of America strives to treat complex wounds and supercharge the body’s healing potential.

The Types Of Regenerative Therapies We Offer:

Growth Factor-Based Therapies

Growth factor-based therapies harness the power of specialized proteins known as growth factors, crucial in regulating the body’s response to wound healing. These growth factors initiate and manage the complex cascade of events necessary for tissue repair. By administering concentrated forms of these growth factors, we can enhance the body’s natural healing processes. This targeted approach helps stimulate cellular proliferation, angiogenesis, and tissue regeneration, promoting optimal wound closure and recovery. This is an effective therapy used in regenerative medicine in Los Angeles.

Stem Cell-Based Therapies

Stem cell-based therapies harness the remarkable capabilities of stem cells, which possess the unique ability to self-renew and differentiate into various types of tissues. These therapies involve the administration of stem cells to support and accelerate the healing process. Stem cells can be derived from various sources, such as bone marrow or adipose tissue. When introduced into the injured area, they promote tissue regeneration, modulate inflammation, and facilitate the growth of new blood vessels.

Small Molecule-Based Therapies

Small molecule-based therapies provide an alternative approach to wound healing by utilizing small molecules instead of cells or proteins. These therapies target and modulate key signaling pathways involved in tissue repair. Small molecules can penetrate cells easily and have advantages in terms of sterility and shelf life. By precisely manipulating these pathways, we can promote cellular responses that enhance tissue regeneration, reduce inflammation, and facilitate efficient wound healing. This is a natural procedure offered as part of our regenerative medicine in Los Angeles.

What Are Bioengineered Skin & Soft Tissue Substitutes?

Bioengineered skin and soft tissue substitutes are specialized materials designed to replace or augment human skin and soft tissues, aiding in wound healing, wound closure, and tissue reconstruction. These substitutes can be either permanent or temporary in nature, providing support and promoting the regeneration of damaged tissues. They serve as alternatives to natural human skin and soft tissue, offering structural integrity, promoting cell growth, and facilitating the restoration of functional tissue to optimize wound healing. Bioengineered skin and soft tissue substitutes are categorized either based on the component type (Cellular vs Acellular), or the origin (Biologic/Natural vs Synthetic vs Biosynthetic).

The Types Of Bioengineered Skin & Soft Tissue Substitutes We Offer:

Cellular Products

Cellular products incorporate living cells, such as fibroblasts and keratinocytes, within a supportive matrix. These cells can be derived from the epidermal and/or dermal layers of the skin. When applied to wounds, cellular products promote tissue regeneration and accelerate healing. They support new tissue growth, enhance wound closure, and contribute to the overall restoration of skin and soft tissues.

Acellular Products

Acellular products consist of a matrix or scaffold composed of components found in the extracellular matrix of the skin, including collagen, hyaluronic acid, fibronectin, and laminin. These products have had cellular material removed, making them non-living. When applied to wounds, acellular products provide a framework for cell migration, angiogenesis, and tissue regeneration. They support wound healing by promoting the formation of new tissue.

Biologic (Natural), Synthetic, or Biosynthetic Products

Biologic (natural) products are derived from various sources. They can be obtained from human or cadaveric skin, infant foreskin, human placental membranes like amnion, human pericardium, human intestinal mucosa, porcine (pig) skin, bovine (cow) skin, or fish skin. These products offer a biocompatible and biodegradable matrix that supports tissue regeneration to facilitate wound healing and wound closure. Synthetic substitutes, on the other hand, are constructed in specialized laboratories out of non-biological substrates. These products are biodegradable and help create an optimal environment for regeneration and healing.
