Biocellular Therapy is a branch of regenerative medicine that uses the body’s own healing powers to fight the aging process and injury. This non-surgical therapy is administered with regenerative injections that consist of simple biological materials, including specialized cells and growth factors that are proven to invigorate the body’s natural wound healing response to damaged tissues. With age, our body’s natural restorative processes can wane in efficacy, causing injured tissue to heal unsuccessfully or incompletely. For those concerned with the aesthetic impact of the aging process, biocellular therapy offers a natural way to achieve a rejuvenated appearance. Many of us go throughout our lives fighting back the physical and emotional discomfort associated with these conditions. While other solutions may promise improvement, they do little to solve the problem at the source. Because regenerative injections are safe and effective for a wide range of conditions, Dr. Mustafa Ahmed is proud to offer them to his clientele in the Las Vegas area and beyond. Those interested in the natural benefits of regenerative medicine and harnessing the body’s natural healing power should schedule an initial consultation!

About Regenerative Injections
Dr. Ahmed offers biocellular injections to restore function, reduce pain, and rejuvenate affected areas. These simple, easily tolerated injections introduce organic and safe biological materials to damaged tissue. This causes affected cells to rapidly undergo the body’s natural healing process. As a result, healthy new cells are produced, and patients enjoy an effective and natural way to see real improvement without resorting to harsh pharmaceuticals, invasive surgeries, or other treatments that often are accompanied by a host of unpleasant side effects.
The Power of Cells
The term “autologous” means from the patient’s own body. For example, you’ve probably heard of the popular body contouring treatment the Brazilian Butt Lift. This procedure accentuates curves by using an autologous fat transfer. And while unwanted fat has long been a way to add the desired volume to areas of the body like the buttocks, face, or breasts, there’s a lot more our own fat can do for us. With the latest advancements in regenerative medicine, scientists have found that there are also vital properties present in our fat that can be isolated and used for a variety of other purposes. These regenerative elements include undifferentiated cells. This means that they are isolated from a sample of fat, they can be re-introduced to the area needing treatment, whether for aesthetic rejuvenation or as a healing therapy for an injury. Once administered, these properties. become integral for producing new cells, developing new blood vessels and regulating inflammation, pain, and immune tolerance. When these potent cells are introduced directly into the affected tissue, the tissue’s healing response strengthens, resulting in an enhanced repair and growth.
Regenerative Injections for Injuries
The body employs its wound healing response in just about every area of the body. So, these regenerative injections can treat a wide array of conditions.
Painful or Injured Joints
When internal injuries occur, the affected tissue might not have the restorative means to heal and reclaim healthy function effectively. By injecting your own healing biological factors into the affected joints, the damaged tissue gets a jumpstart and revitalization in its healing process.
As it is the most common form of arthritis, osteoarthritis is where the cartilage between bones wears down over time, resulting in bone rubbing directly on the bone. This condition can be extremely painful and can lead to a decreased overall quality of life. With restorative injections, patients can treat damaged cartilage with healing properties that decrease inflammation, pain, and enhance tissue regeneration in the damaged cells.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Cuts, nicks, and tears in the skin can sometimes heal irregularly, due to an overproduction of collagen or elastin. The scarring or discoloration that is left behind can be a source of embarrassment. By introducing regenerative properties to the affected area, we stimulate the normal healing process and the turnover of damaged cells.
Regenerative Injections for Aesthetics
When it comes to maintaining a youthful appearance, time is not on our side. But that’s not the only force working against us! Our skin is our largest organ, and the only one located externally on our bodies. As such, it’s subjected to a constant barrage of damage as it works to protect us. And although pollution and lifestyle choices can wreak havoc, the biggest culprit is sun damage. Photoaging creates changes in our elastin – the protein that keeps our skin able to “snap back.”
These changes result in crumpled, disorganized structural proteins in the extracellular matrix, the deepest layer of our dermis, where important components of our skin are produced. However, studies have shown that solar elastosis can be treated and in some cases even reversed by injections of fat-derived cellular material. 
Injections of prepared autologous fat are also commonly used to address volume loss. But besides plumping gaunt-looking areas, they also introduce a flood of regenerative properties. So, while cheeks, lips, or temples get a little boost of plumping power, they also get the support they need on a cellular level. This means fresh healthy cells, and ramped-up production of structural proteins like collagen and elastin for firm, glowing skin.  Who doesn’t want to get rid of a little fat and turn back the clock?
Many of the benefits of opting for alternative cell therapy are a direct result of the autologous tissue from which they are derived. Simply put: it’s all you!
- No risk of allergic reaction or rejection
- Fast procedure with minimal discomfort
- All-natural, biological material without side effects
- Uses small amounts of unwanted fat
- Non-surgical procedure
- Can be used to improve the rate of healing after other procedures
- Eases inflammation
- Repairs damaged tissues naturally
Since injuries can happen at any age, we recommend regenerative injections to patients of all ages. Typically, older patients’ wound healing response is not quite as robust as their younger counterparts. Instead of relying on pharmacological methods to quiet the pain, these patients turn to regenerative injections to manipulate the body’s own physiological functions to restore homeostasis.
And for those with aesthetic concerns, it’s never too soon to start preventing the signs of aging! We invite those who are interested in using natural regenerative medicine to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Ahmed at our Paradise offices. Be sure to fill out this online form, and a member of our team will be in touch shortly.
Before their regenerative injection procedure, we ask our patients to be well-hydrated. We also ask that they avoid blood-thinning medications as the injection might cause unnecessary bleeding or bruising if the blood is thin. Since there’s no need to use anesthesia for this simple, minimally-invasive procedure, the patient can drive themselves home, or to the next item on their schedule! If you have any questions about preparing for your procedure, please feel free to call our front desk at (702) 447-1257.
Cellular treatments are quick, outpatient procedures performed in-office at Las Vegas Body Sculpting. The harvest area will be numbed, and small amounts of fat removed using a microcannula, a device similar to a syringe. The harvested fat is then processed to isolate the regenerative properties and ensure that the fat is an optimal consistency for injection. Then, after the injections are strategically placed in the treatment area, the procedure is complete and the patient can return to their day!
How Much Does biocellular Therapy Cost in Las Vegas?
Since every patient’s needs differ, their treatment plans will include different injections and/or different target areas. So, the price of their procedure will vary from other patients. We will determine the price of your treatment plan during your initial consultation.

Also, be sure to read about previous patients’ experiences. To contact us directly, please call (702) 447-1257.
Are biocellular injections ethical?
biocellular injections are formulated from biological material sourced from the patient’s own body. A small amount of harvested fat is processed and then injected into the treatment area, so the treatment is biocompatible and has no risk of an adverse reaction.
What is the recovery process like after a biocellular therapy session?
Your doctor will use microcannulas to harvest and inject the regenerative properties derived from your own fat. Since these use extremely fine needles and a numbing cream is available, it’s no more painful than any other kind of injection. And, because it utilizes your own cells, there’s no risk of unpleasant side-effects.
