Now, with a wealth of new information about the aging process in the face as well as studies showing the presence of adult stem cells in fat tissue, we offer the latest from our Stem Cell practice, the Stem Cell Face Lift- The new celebrity secret. A combination of procedures, the Stem Cell Face Lift will restore shape and contour and address laxity in the face. The fat processing techniques, which result in high concentrations of adult stem cells, produce long lasting results.
Light & Laser treatment
Dr. Gallo harvests stem cell rich fat tissue from the abdomen or inner thigh area, in an out-patient lipoplasty procedure. The fat is then mixed with platelet rich plasma (PRP) and injected to augment the face. The PRP contains growth factors and proteins which may induce the skin and fatty layers to produce more of their own cells. The growth factors stimulate or initiate "a signal" to the body to "restore" itself. The result is a long-term, marked improvement that enhances both skin quality as well as the underlying youthful contours of the face; a completely "NATURAL" result. The patients treated have exhibited marked improvement not only in the underlying soft tissue contours of the face but also the skin texture and color.
This is followed by non-surgical light and laser treatments that are tailored to each patient's specific needs to address wrinkles and pigmentation. Resurfacing treatments can include IPL, Active FX Laser resurfacing, Laser Micropeel and/or chemical peels.
