Regenerative medicine is a medical treatment that seeks to improve, repair, or regenerate functionally and organically lost tissues or organs, primarily by transplanting cultured and grown versions of one’s own cells or tissues. It is expected to have the potential to provide fundamental treatment of diseases, disease prevention, and new treatment methods for intractable diseases, and clinical research has been conducted extensively. Our body is composed of more than 30 trillion cells, and every day 20 billion cells die and new cells are regenerated in a “cellular turnover” that occurs on a much larger scale than we can imagine. However, not all cells in the human body are replaced; 86% of replaced cells are blood and 12% are gastrointestinal cells. For example, brain nerve cells and eye lens cells, which comprise 0.5% of all cells, are never replaced in a lifetime. Stem cells are essential for the regeneration of these cells, which are replaced daily, and they also play an important role when the body needs to regenerate and repair itself. We all have experienced “skin regeneration,” in which wounds heal naturally after an injury or other physical damage. Regenerative medicine is a cutting-edge medical treatment that utilizes the “regenerative power” that is inherent to the human body.

Stem cells are cells in the early stages of development that can transform into all the cells and tissues in our body. Through a process called differentiation, stem cells develop their own functions and change their shape. Until differentiation, they exist in an “undifferentiated state,” but they also have the ability to differentiate into various types of cells, including the regenerative ability to proliferate on their own. Although regular cells increase the number of individuals by division, stem cells have the ability to create various cells and tissues such as brain, skin, cartilage, bone, nerve, and muscle by dividing and differentiating. Various stem cell therapeutic agents are being researched and have already been approved as stem cell therapies for the treatment of intractable and chronic diseases that are conventionally considered difficult to treat. It is also used in the treatment of intractable diseases, and numerous studies on its effects and mechanisms are being conducted at various medical research institutes in Japan and abroad. Stem cells are cultured from fat (about 50 cc) extracted from the abdomen, thighs, etc., grown to a specific volume, and then injected into the patient’s body. JK Medical Japan’s JK CELL Program is a regenerative medicine clinic established in Japan for cutting-edge stem cell therapy based on the technology and knowledge of JK Cosmetic Surgery, the No. 1 clinic in the Korean aesthetic medicine and wellness industry. Stem cells are highly regarded worldwide in the fields of preventive medicine, anti-aging and cosmetic medicine. Physical aging is inevitable for all of us. As we age, our bones, joints, and muscles weaken, as well as our eyesight and hearing function. In addition, memory and immune function deteriorate, and the skin loses its elasticity and luster. These changes and deterioration of functions are due to cellular aging.

Intravenously administered cultured stem cells have the ability to identify areas in need of regeneration.
Regenerative medicine using stem cells is strictly examined by the Specific Accreditation Committee for Regenerative Medicine approved by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare for the appropriateness, safety, physician system, and cell processing management system of such treatment. If the committee determines that the treatment is appropriate, a treatment plan can be submitted to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, and the treatment can be performed for the first time. JK is a medical facility that has gone through the formal process of submitting a Type 2 Regenerative Medicine Provision Plan to the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare and obtained a plan number.
The optimal number of cells is cultured based on the treatment and physique.
With proprietary technology for adipose stem cell isolation and cultivation, JK provides global stem cell treatment overseas for the convenience of its clients in cooperation with affiliated hospitals in Korea.
JK’s original program (stem cell intravenous injection × local injection, cosmetic medicine, etc.), which incorporates 23 years of knowledge of cosmetic medicine and the latest regenerative medicine, can achieve “healthy beauty” through simultaneous treatment.
Stem cell therapy starts with counseling. The doctor will provide a detailed explanation of the purpose, safety, and risks of the treatment in accordance with the “Guidelines for Human Somatic Stem Cells” by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare. The patient and family members will receive a full explanation and understanding of the details and plan of the stem cell treatment, and the treatment will be initiated only after the patient agrees to the treatment and plan policy of his/her own volition.
What is Platelet rich plasma treatment? PRP directly means platelet rich plasma. Blood is composed of 55% plasma and 45% blood cells, with platelets making up less than 1% of the blood cells. Therefore, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is created by separating blood using a centrifuge. The separated plasma contains concentrated platelets, which are injected or infiltrated directly into various areas, such as the skin and joints. Since it uses one‘s own blood, it is also known as “vampire injections. PRP is rich in platelets and protein-based growth factors that activate cell regeneration. The components work on damaged skin to promote collagen and elastin production, resulting in skin regeneration. It can also be injected into damaged cartilage, ligaments, or muscle parts to induce cell proliferation at the inflamed area. Since it is a regenerative medicine method using one’s own blood, the speed of regeneration is fast and side effects are minimal. Unlike surgical treatment, this procedure is not physically demanding and can be applied to elderly patients.
