As we age, there is less collagen in our face, there is less tone, blood vessels become weaker, wrinkles become more apparent and ultimately lead to the loss of that youthful look. Men and women have been getting face lifts for a very long time to counter that fact but there may just be a new method that does more than just lift the skin. Check out this article about what a stem cell facelift is and call us today to book an appointment!
What is the Stem Cell Facelift?
The stem cell facelift is a complete facial rejuvenation procedure without involving any surgery. The procedure avoids any incisions and the actual were lifting of the skin itself. The procedure has been performed at the Plastic Surgery Center Internationale for over four years with outstanding results.
The main function of the procedure is to restore both the youthful contour and shape of the face as well as a marked improvement in skin quality, tightness and color irregularities caused by the aging process as well as exposure to the sun and environment.
Patients who have undergone this procedure frequently avoid or markedly reduce the need for other maintenance procedures like Botox and cosmetic filler injections.
The function of the procedure is based on the regenerative capacity of a group of cells called ADULT STEM CELLS.
Of the hundred trillion cells that make up the human body, stem cells are the most important category. They are among the few cells in the body that are specialized and have the potential to become a particular cell type and replace worn and damage cells.
A large number of stem cells exist in adipose or 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 survival of these tissues occurs.
What makes the stem cell facelifts unique and different from other fat transplant procedures is the fact that the abdominal fat and stem cells are mixed with a specific combination of growth factors that help both the stem cells and adipose tissues grow into the needed tissue to restore both the fat to enhance the volume of the face as well as skin elements to improve both the quality and texture of the skin.
