Stem Cell technology has changed the dynamics of plastic surgery as we know it. The latest from our Stem Cell practice, the Stem Cell Face Lift is the new celebrity secret.
Light & Laser treatment
The implication, and success of this new procedure, is that it can be performed without drawing too much attention to the patient and with very little downtime. A combination of procedures, the Stem Cell Face Lift will restore shape and contour and address laxity and hyperpigmentation to the face. The fat processing techniques which result in high concentrations of adult stem cells produce long lasting results.
Beginning with a Thermage treatment, the contraction of protein and the stimulation of collagen initiates the tightening of the facial structure.
The patient returns 1 week later when we harvest stem cells from the abdomen or inner thigh area and augment the face with platelet rich plasma (PRP) and additional injectables. This elevates the muscle and loose tissue to a more yothful position. The transfer of stem cells to the face is not just a volume filler. The stem cell enhanced fat can actually rejuvenate your facial tissues and skin. Stem cells assist in increasing blood supply to tissues to make tissues look younger. Minor facial procedures can be added at this time, if desired.
This is followed by light and laser treatments that are tailored to each patient's specific needs. Resurfacing treatments can include IPL, Active FX and/or Micropeel.
The Stem Cell Face Lift is perfect for the patient who wants to address aging without surgery or needs a little "refresher".
