What is XCell Therapy?
XCell therapy is a revolutionary treatment that uses blood-derived stem cells to promote healing. It can treat many illnesses and enhance appearance and wellbeing.
The stem cells are harvested from a vein, similar to donating blood. After being processed in the lab, the isolated and activated stem cells can be injected intravenously or into a site of injury. As XCell therapy uses only your own blood stem cells, there is minimal risk of allergic or foreign-body reactions.
What does the process involve?
A pre-treatment consultation is used to check suitability and discuss treatment goals. If travelling far for therapy, this consult can be done by video or phone conference.
Pre-treatment blood test
Blood tests are required to confirm that there are no health problems that make you unsuitable for treatment.
Blood tests can be done in your home town if you are travelling for treatment.
Day 1 - Morning: Blood extraction
You will need to fast for 8 hours before we harvest your blood. XCell stem cells take 24-48 hours to be isolated from your blood and activated. No chemical additives or cell cultures are involved.
Day 1 - Afternoon: Optional PPP injection
A by-product called platelet poor plasma (PPP) is also isolated during the filtration process. PPP is a substance rich in growth factors. This PPP can be given back to you as an injection 3 hours after your blood extraction.
Day 2/Day 3: Injection of XCell stem cells
After 24-48 hours, your XCell stem cells will be ready for injection.
How does it work?
XCell therapy releases concentrated and activated stem cells that induce healing and promote regeneration. When these cells are injected into your bloodstream, they exhibit a homing capacity which means that they travel to where they are needed.
What can be treated with XCell?
Muscle and tendon injuries
Back and neck pain
Cosmetic (hair, face)
Sexual dysfunction and enhancement

There are rare cases where a patient who has arrived at the clinic must be denied treatment because of a medical problem. Conditions include: infections, cancer, high levels of tumour markers in the blood and pregnancy.
We do not recommend IV XCell therapy if you have had cosmetic Botox treatments in the past 2 months as it may reverse the effect of Botox.
