Stem Cell Technology and the Revolutionary Stem Cell Facelift Procedure

Although fat grafting has been available for more than a decade, a revolutionary new technique of transplanting Adult Stem Cells into the skin of the face to produce a naturally fuller, more youthful looking appearance, is quickly becoming one of the most popular options for non- surgical facelift procedures. The Stem Cell Facelift involves the physician extracting a small amount of fatty tissue from the patient’s abdomen, where stem cells are abundant. This extracted tissue is mixed with specific growth factors in the operating room and at the same time of the procedure to enhance the regenerative power of the stem cells, and the finished product is injected into the desired areas of the patient’s face. A mild clinical solution is applied to the skin to stimulate the collagen producing cells as well as to remove the aged skin surface.
The Power of Stem Cell Assisted Fat Transfer for Facial Rejuvenation
The miracle of Adult Stem Cells is found naturally in our bodies. Stem Cells have the unique ability to regenerate themselves and to repair damaged body tissues. Stem Cell Growth Factors induce the skin and fatty layers to produce more of their own cells. The factors stimulate a signal to both the local stem cells within the skin and fat, as well as the transplanted adult stem cells, to multiply and restore themselves. More fatty tissue under the skin is developed and the face fills out naturally, for a fuller, more youthful appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed away, and the overall results are long lasting, up to seven years based on Dr. Giampapa’s clinical research.
Revolutionary Stem Cell Technology is Changing Cosmetic Facial Rejuvenation in the Med Spa Industry
In 2008 at the World Academy of Anti-Aging and Cosmetic Medicine in Paris, Vincent Giampapa, MD, FACS, was the first doctor to introduce this revolutionary “Stem Cell Facelift”process. He has presented it to many medical meetings in both the US and abroad. Dr. Giampapa is a world renowned anti-aging physician and plastic surgeon who pioneered this exciting new technology. The Stem Cell Facelift is quickly becoming the most popular option for Non- Surgical Facelift Procedures, and is often preferred over Facial Filler Injections, such as Hyaluronic Acids or Botox. Results from fillers are not nearly as long lasting as the Stem Cell Facelift Procedure. The natural regenerating properties of a patient’s own stem cells to fill in the face and smooth out fine wrinkles provides superior, more natural looking results with fewer negative side effects, and with little risk. Med Spa offices around the globe are offering the Stem Cell Facelift Procedure as a long- term result option for facial rejuvenation, as the demand for the procedure is steadily increasing.
Benefits of the Stem Cell Facelift Procedure
Many physicians are referring to the Stem Cell Facelift Procedure as the best non – surgical facelift option available today. Since the fatty tissue and adult stem cells are harvested from the patient’s own body, there is little chance of rejection or infection. The procedure is completed in the doctor’s office in about an hour under local anesthesia, so no general anesthesia is needed and no costly hospitalization is required. Recovery time is much shorter than with traditional surgical face lift procedures, generally taking about one week to recover, with the result being a long- term improvement that enhances skin quality and the underlying youthful contours of the face. Stem Cell Facelift allows you to keep your natural appearance in tact. You will look refreshed, lifted and smoother.
