Houston Cosmetic Surgery: rejuvenate your skin today!
Stem cell anti-aging facial rejuvenation is a complete rejuvenation procedure
without involving any surgery; it is the process whereby the hidden genetic
potential of adult stem cells is awakened. The procedure restores the
youthful contour and shape of the face as well as skin tightness and evens
out color irregularities cause by the aging process and environmental
Stem Cell rejuvenation utilizes the latest in anti-aging facial rejuvenation
technology by using your own cells with platelet rich plasma technology
and manipulating collagen induction. This is also referred to as autologous
cellular regeneration (ACR).
The benefits of autologous fat transfer to the face and volume enhancement,
is that the fat contains a high concentration of stem cells, these have
a beneficial effect on skin rejuvenation improving the tone and texture
of the skin.
The stem cell fat transfer is also done in combination with other cosmetic
procedures to enhance the result. In eyelid surgery, loss of volume may
be permanently corrected with autologous fat transfer. In facelift and
neck lift surgery, the use of fat stem cell transfer enhances the result
by improving facial volume and skin quality.
What is Stem Cell Surgery?
The use of stem cell technology aims to restore the youthful contours and
shape of the face as well as an improvement in skin quality.
The innovation is based on the regenerative capacity of a group of cells
called adult stem cells. Stem cells are unique in the body in that they
are specialized and have the potential to become a particular cell type
and replace worn and damage cells. A large proportion of stem cells exist
in fat. Stem cells are transplanted with fat to a different parts of their
body, some of these cells then live in these new areas helping to form
new tissue at the transplanted site. The regenerative properties of the
stem cells along with transplanted fat provide a marked improvement of
survival of these tissues. When the transfer is combined with other cosmetic
surgery such as facelifts, the effect of the surgery can be enhanced.
The use of stem cell technology is at the forefront of anti-aging medicine.
Expect minimal swelling, bruising and redness for 12-24 hours. Bruise at
the vena-puncture may be visible for 2-3 days.
Improvement in wrinkles as well as the tone and texture of the skin can
be achieved with just one treatment. Treatment result varies however in
most patients the results last up to 12-18 months.
Results are visible at 4 to 6 weeks and improve gradually over ensuing
months with improvement in texture and tone, creating a natural result.
Cosmetic and light therapies can enhance the results. Advanced wrinkling
cannot be reversed and results may not be very effective for patients
who smoke or consume excessive alcohol or drugs, platelet rich plasma
is poor in such patients.
