Stem Cell Facelift
The “Stem Cell Facelift” is a complete facial rejuvenation procedure without involving any surgery. It works to restore the youthful contour and shape of the face as well as skin tightness and even out color irregularities caused by the ageing process and environmental sun exposure. This technique frequently avoids, or reduces the need for repeated Botox and cosmetic filler injections.
Fat grafting to the face has been known and utilized for over a decade with varying amount of success from patient to patient. This new approach of transplanting “Adult Stem Cells” and fat from the lower abdominal or medial thigh area, and awakening them as well as the local stem cells within three layers of the face with specific stem cell growth factors, is a revolutionary technique of facial rejuvenation. The transplanted Fat cells, and particularly the Adult Stem Cells, are now known to be a source of “hormone-like” substances that enhance both skin quality and the underlying subcutaneous-fatty tissues of the cheeks, the mid face and the skin in general. These specific “Stem Cell Growth Factors” induce the skin and fatty layers to produce more of their own cells.
The Factors stimulate or initiate “a signal” to both the local stem cells within the skin and fat as well as the transplanted adult stem cells from the lower abdomen to multiply and restore themselves. The result is a long-term marked improvement that enhances both skin quality as well as the underlying youthful contours of the face; a completely “NATURAL” result. The patients treated have exhibited marked improvement not only in the underlying soft tissue contours of the face but the skin texture and color.
Additionally, this technique treats the skin surface with a special solution to remove the effectsof the ageing process (i.e. sun damage and age spots), as well as restoring the age relatedvolume loss or upper face.
