In the last few decades, minimally-invasive technologies and techniques have changed the medical landscape. Today, doctors who perform cosmetic procedures have an increasingly sophisticated range of treatments at their disposal, which means that patients have greater possibilities to achieve their enhancement goals. For those wishing to combat the signs of aging, there is a novel treatment that may pave the way to better skin. Stem Cell Aesthetics is a revolutionary new therapy that can potentially help regenerate damaged skin.
How does it work?
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are stromal cells that have the capacity to develop into specialized cells in a process called cellular differentiation. MSCs are pluripotent, or able to become a range of cell types, including cells that produce collagen and support cells for skin enhancement.
During a Stem Cell Aesthetics procedure, MSCs are introduced into the treatment area when a stem cell suspension product in injected into the skin or applied to the skin after laser or microneedling treatment. The injection product contains growth factors and other cellular products, which are involved in the body’s regenerative functions. A Stem Cell Aesthetics procedure can be combined with other non-surgical procedures to produce optimal results.
Laser resurfacing: Laser treatments use heat energy to prompt the skin to produce more collagen. When laser light is directed towards the area of concern, it penetrates the skin and reaches the skin’s deep layer (dermis). This starts a healing process that, over time, can smooth etched-in lines and tighten the skin. When combined with a laser treatment like the Fractionated CO2 Laser, stem cells can help decrease inflammation and speed the healing process.
Microneedling: Stem Cell Aesthetics can be combined with microneedling (with or without PRP) to enhance the result of the treatment and use microneedling to deliver stem cells into the skin.
Hair loss: Stem cell injections can be used alone or in combination with platelet rich plasma to promote hair follicle growth and support existing hair follicles. This treatment can be combined with other treatments as well, including nutritional supplementation and energy based devices.
