A whole-person approach to hands-on care

Osteopathic physicians believe there’s more to good health than the absence of pain or disease. Learn more about the DO difference.

Cellular Medicine Association – Home

To better understand why cellular medicine forms the foundation of health and beauty, consider your bed:  if you get a surgical facelift, you get a tighter sheet.  If you use cellular medicine to make the skin healthier, you get a new sheet (epidermis), a new mattress (dermis) and new box springs (fatty tissue and bone). 

There’s a time to tighten the sheet (many of our members are cosmetic surgeons) but every surgeon will tell you that, even if you have surgery, the healthier and younger the tissue (new sheets) the better the results.

This group of scientistsphysicians, and nurse-practitioners (members of the American Cosmetic Cellular Medicine Association) works to discover and to become expert at the best uses of cell biology to improve health and beauty

Current research sponsored by the ACCMA

The methods include stem cells, peptides, glycosaminoglycans (like Juvederm and Restylane), retinoic
