Traditionally, dermal fillers have been used to plump up volume in the facial area and create a more youthful appearance by lifting the cheeks and enhancing blood flow.
Stem cell facelifts use the healing powers of stem cells harvested from the fat throughout the body and using it as a more natural alternative to dermal fillers. Many scientists and doctors believe that the adult stem cells from PRP and fat enhance tissue healing, lead to the growth of new blood vessels, and ultimately produce a more youthful glow of skin. For these reasons, doctors offer stem cell treatments to smooth out wrinkles, and improve the skin’s overall texture and tone.
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
In order to understand why stem cells are used as a facial rejuvenation alternative, it is important to first understand what stem cells are and what their function is. Of the trillions of cells that make up the human body, stem cells are by far the most intriguing category. They are among the few cells in the body that are able to transform between cell types and have the potential to become a needed cell type and replace worn and damaged cells that they encounter.
A large number of stem cells exist in fat tissue. When stem cells are transplanted with fat in the different parts of their body, the majority of them grown and exist in these new areas helping to form new tissue at the transplanted site. By using the regenerative properties of stem cells along with transplanted fat, a marked improvement of these tissues occurs.
Stem cell facial rejuvenation therapy is a non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure that harnesses the science of stem cells to make the body create more collagen and fill in tissues with healthy blood flow, resulting in a glowing, youthful appearance.
What is a Stem Cell Facelift?
The stem cell facelift is a simple technique that takes cells from your fat tissues, blood, bone marrow and uses them to restore elasticity, smoothness, and softness of the skin.
It is a true and complete facial rejuvenation procedure that does not involve surgery, avoiding any open incision and help in the process of “lifting” the skin itself. The treatment helps to improve the contour and shape of the face, improve skin color and irregularities caused by normal aging, as well as improving marks caused by exposure to the sun and environment.
Who Can Have This Procedure Done?
The stem cell facelift is ideal for those with early or mild signs of facial aging and want to rejuvenate their skin without going under the knife. The treatment is perfect for those who want their wrinkles more shallow, their cheekbones more defined, or if you just want to get rid of other early or moderate signs of aging.
What Results Can I Expect From This Procedure?
Stem cells can provide many benefits to patients. They can raise the volume and structure of the face and achieve a more youthful appearance, and also aid in the repair and rejuvenation of the skin for up to 18 months. This is possible because stem cells have the amazing ability to recognize and repair damaged tissue.
Patients who undergo stem cell therapies for facial lifting claim that their skin is thicker and more radiant, and that the benefits last for up to nine months. This treatment can help repair lines that have developed, help fill in sunken cheeks, and also remove bags under the eyes.
The duration of the results of the procedure depends on the individual aging process the patient has already experienced. Other factors that affect the success of the procedure include poor eating habits, exposure to sunlight, smoking, and proper skin care.
Technique and Protocol
The facial rejuvenation procedure with stem cells is very simple and can be performed under local anesthesia. It’s fast, mostly free of pain or discomfort, and does not require hospital visits.
During the process, liposuction is used on belly fat or other areas of fat to gently remove stem cells. Stem cells are also harvest from your blood and bone marrow. Stem cells are then isolated, and then injected into the face. The power of stem cells improves skin, tighten it and makes wrinkles disappear.
The procedure does not only involve injecting stem cells into specific areas of the face, chin or lips, but also allows the specialist to sculpt or remove fat from specific areas to get a facial contour specifically designed to fit the needs of each patient.
