Stem cells are special, highly adaptive cells that are being increasingly used to promote tissue healing in new and wonderfully beneficial ways. One of these ways is with what’s known as stem cell facial rejuvenation. Sometimes referred to as a stem cell facelift, the process involves cells safely harvested from your own body.
What are Stem Cells?
Before discussing stem cell facial rejuvenation, let’s briefly discuss stem cells in a bit more detail. The human body is made up of trillions of cells, many of which have very specific purposes. Stem cells are unique in that they can adapt to whatever environment they are placed in. This ability allows stem cells to behave, in this case, like skin cells. They also contain beneficial properties that help improve skin appearance.
Where Do the Stem Cells Come From?
Your body naturally produces stem cells, but they are found in larger amounts in fat tissue. For this reason, undifferentiated cells needed for stem cell facial rejuvenation usually come from areas of the body with significant fat deposits, such as the hips or lower back area. Because your own fat tissue is used, stem cell therapy is considered a safe process for most individuals.
What is Stem Cell Facial Rejuvenation?
A “stem cell facelift” or facial rejuvenation is a simple process that starts with the collection of fat tissue. The collected tissue is rapidly spun so that stem cells can be prepared as an injectable material. Numbing gel or a local anesthetic is often applied to the injection site to make the procedure more comfortable.
How Do the Stem Cells Work On Your Face?
The stem cells facilitate skin tissue growth while also helping damaged skin tissue heal. Stem cells also help your body produce more collagen, a substance that gives skin its natural elasticity. The special cells fill in tissue and play a role in improving circulation, which results in a more youthful appearance.
Who May Benefit from This Procedure?
This procedure is ideal for individuals not wishing to undergo a traditional surgical facelift. Because there will only be injections, you won’t have to worry about scars from incisions. It’s also an appealing solution since you won’t have significant downtime and other inconveniences. This treatment also reduces the need for repeated injections of temporary fillers.
What Results Can Be Expected?
Stem cell facial rejuvenation has the potential to produce many much-appreciated benefits for patients. Stems calls may increase facial volume, which could leave you with skin that’s naturally tighter. Stem cells also play a role in skin cell repair, a process that can continue for more than a year after treatment. This happens because stem cells are capable of recognizing when skin tissue is damaged and in need of repair in the affected area.
