Stem cells have the powerful ability to regenerate without limit and repair damaged tissue. Not only are stem cells beneficial for healing damaged joints, nerves and organs, but they are also valuable in treating skin damaged by age, prolonged exposure to the sun and pollution from environmental factors. The Stem Cell Face-Lift offered by Innovations Stem Cell Center provides powerful anti-aging and skin-rejuvenating benefits.
What Is the Stem Cell Face-Lift?
The Stem Cell Face-Lift is a way to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, skin laxity, discoloration and other signs of aging without the incisions and long recovery associated with the surgical face-lift procedure. While patients who undergo the Stem Cell Face-Lift see improvements in their skin and look younger, it is important to note that the procedure does not yield the same results as the surgical face-lift.
How Is the Stem Cell Face-Lift Performed?
Before the Stem Cell Face-Lift procedure, Dr. Johnson must harvest your stem cells from an area of your body with unwanted fat, such as your lower back or abdomen. Before the liposuction procedure, the harvest area is numbed, a small incision is made and the liposuction is performed using a specialized cannula. After the liposuction portion of your procedure, Dr. Johnson will take the harvested stem cells and inject them into your face using tiny needles.
Is the Stem Cell Face-Lift a Standalone Procedure?
The Stem Cell Face-Lift can be performed alone or in combination with a facial fat transfer for optimal anti-aging benefits. Combining the two procedures increases the rate of cell survival by 20 percent. Stem cell injections also induce the body to increase the production of collagen, the essential skin protein responsible for the skin’s ability to stretch and retract. This increased production of collagen yields anti-aging skin-tightening benefits to smooth wrinkles and erase lines. Additional collagen also helps guard against the future appearance of aging.
These are additional benefits above and beyond those yielded by a facial fat transfer alone.
Is There a Recovery Period After the Stem Cell Face-Lift?
The recovery period for the facial injection portion of the Stem Cell Face-Lift is usually minimal. Patients may experience mild swelling and bruising for the first few days after the procedure. Peeling occurs only rarely, but the improvement in color and texture of your skin will continue for several months.
Recovery from the liposuction portion of the procedure is very quick, and many patients report only mild bruising from the procedure. The incisions required for the liposuction typically do not even require stitches!
The skin continues to improve in quality and texture over the next six months to a year following the Stem Cell Face-Lift procedure.
