As we age, we all start to notice the gradual wear and tear on the body, especially in our faces. The sun’s
ultraviolet rays, lack of sleep, not staying hydrated, and many other life and environmental factors can
all take a toll on our skin. But now, more people than ever before can enjoy a youthful appearance for
longer periods of time without scarring or expensive surgery.
Stem cell therapy is a popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure that helps restore and rejuvenate your
face. It involves harvesting powerful cells and using them to promote growth and speed healing. In
terms of cosmetic uses and facial rejuvenation, stem cells are removed from a patient’s own tissue,
combined with premium growth hormones, and then the concentrated solution in reinjected into target
areas of the face.
The unique thing about stem cells is that they can develop into any type of cell in the body, in addition
to encouraging production of native cells.
For a while now, some plastic surgeons have been using stem cells to treat aging, sun-damaged skin. But
while they’ve been getting good results, it’s been unclear exactly how these treatments – using adult
stem cells harvested from the patient’s own body – work to rejuvenate photoaged facial skin.
A new microscopic-level study provides the answer: within a few weeks, stem cell treatment eliminates
the sun-damaged elastin network and replacing them with normal, undamaged tissues and structures –
even in the deeper layers of skin.
