Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF)
Next-Generation Cell Therapy for Regeneration and Repair
Known for its regenerative abilities for issues such as joint pain, tissue repair, and cosmetic procedures, Blend Clinic is excited to offer you stromal vascular fraction (SVF) treatment.
What is SVF?
Extracted from fat tissue (adipose tissue), stromal vascular fraction contains a variety of stem cell types including:
- Stem cells, which are instrumental in tissue regeneration
- Progenitor cells, which have the ability to restore aged tissue
- Cells that boost immunity, rejuvenate and slow down degeneration, and have anti-inflammatory properties
What is SVF used for?
Active research into the potential therapeutical applications of stromal vascular fraction has uncovered the following applications:
This common joint disease, sometimes referred to as ‘wear and tear’ arthritis, develops when the protective tissue (cartilage) that cushions bone joints is damaged. This can lead to intense pain, swelling, stiffness, and limited joint mobility.
A number of studies have confirmed that treating osteoarthritis with stromal vascular fraction has led to successful cartilage-like tissue regeneration.
By stimulating tissue regeneration and reducing inflammation, stromal vascular fraction therapy is seen by many as the future of treating musculoskeletal conditions.
Osteoarthritis is the most common joint disease worldwide. It develops when the cartilage becomes worn at the joint. Cartilage, together with joint fluid, enables proper movement of the joint. If the cartilage or joint fluid is affected, it can lead to cartilage and joint damage, which is very painful and impairs movement.
What Are the Warning Signs of Osteoarthritis?
- Limited physical activity
- Unpleasant tugging in the joint
- Stiffness of the joint after long rests (e.g., in the morning)
- Discomfort when you start walking that subsidies after a short walk
- Pain without weight-bearing, which can turn into persistent pain
Where and How Does Osteoarthritis Occur?
Osteoarthritis can be caused by a variety of factors:
- Joint inflammation
- Joint malalignment
- Severe joint stress (due to work or sport activities)
The unique makeup of stromal vascular fraction means it has the capacity to differentiate into bone cells, fat cells, cartilage cells, and other cell types.
As a result, stromal vascular fraction is a valuable application for the following regenerative therapies:
- Treating injuries caused by sports or accidents
- Restoring mobility and muscle reconstruction following surgery
- Quickening the healing process of wounds and fractures
- Treating muscle, joint, and cartilage damage
Stromal vascular fraction cells have the ability to be used in the following aesthetic treatments and procedures:
- To naturally improve the appearance of skin
- To significantly increase hair density and hair diameter in the treatment of alopecia and other types of hair loss
What does stromal vascular fraction treatment involve?
The stromal vascular fraction cells are obtained from the person receiving the treatment.
Following a mild, local anaesthesia, we use a minimally invasive micro fat harvest procedure to collect a small amount of fat from the body, usually from the thighs or abdomen.
Once the desired stromal vascular fraction cells have been isolated it is then added to PRP and injected into the affected area of the body, depending on the condition being treated.
As it’s an outpatient procedure, the treatment should be complete within one hour.
