Stem Cell Facelift
Our new and revolutionary Stem Cell Facelift, is a blend of artistic skills and cutting edge technology. A small amount of fat is enriched with autologous stem cells and gently placed in the areas of the face where volume is lost with aging. In general, the areas that are treated very successfully are the cheeks, under eyes, smile lines and the crow’s feet. This procedure restores the volume and creates lifted, younger and tighter skin. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are also dramatically reduced. The best of all is that results are NATURAL and may last for years.
Stem Cell Injections
As an alternative to surgery, laser and fillers were developed, creating a new approach to anti-aging. They required minimum downtime and the results were natural. Today, fat is the best filler and anti-aging product. The stem cell rich fat provides natural volume while creating a long lasting result that not only reveals a younger look, but also has an effect in the texture and tone of the skin itself. It also improves fine lines, sun damage and age spots.
Fat is considered the ideal filler. It has a great advantage over the other products and very minimum disadvantages or side effects.
- It is readily available and in large quantities
- It yields millions of stem cells per gram of fat
- It can be harvested under local anesthesia in the office
- It is autologous, which means there is minimal chance of allergic reaction
- Can be injected to restore volume of the face, hands and breasts
- It results in a natural and refreshed appearance
- Can last 40% more than regular fat grafting
The procedure consists of performing a small liposuction usually in the lower belly. A specific amount of fat is harvested, calculating the fat that will be processed for stem cell isolation and the fat that will be injected for volume enhancement. The fat is removed under local anesthesia in a sterile technique where the patient is very comfortable. Once the stem cell isolation is completed, the stem cells are mixed with the fat that will be injected. This fat enriched with stem cells creates new blood vessels that maintain the graft alive so it last longer. Besides, stem cells release growth factors that impact skin rejuvenation at a cellular level.
Adult Adipose Stem Cells
Adult adipose stem cells are collected via a mini liposuction procedure and bone marrow cells are aspirated from the hipbone. Bone marrow stem cells have a superior ability to repair and differentiate into ligaments, cartilage and bone. On the other hand, adipose stem cells have far regenerative properties to make new blood vessels, a process that is essential for oxygen and nutrient delivery to the tissues.
