Stem Cell Facelift — The Natural Facelift Option
Many a mature woman is wondering how to rejuvenate her face. The available options which range from plastic surgery to cosmetic laser and dermal injectables are quite confusing: how is the prospective patient to know what option to choose?
Before we go any further let’s ask the fundamental question: what is the main difference between a young face and an aging face? The seemingly obvious answer is wrinkles and sagging skin. Skin sags and wrinkles for several reasons; one of them being the age-related decrease in the production of collagen and elastin; the main reason the face ages, however, is the loss of facial muscles’ volume.
Young people’s faces are plump and their skin is stretched tightly over the facial muscles. With age the volume of facial muscles decreases and the skin begins to wrinkle and sag. Restoring the size of facial muscles significantly reduces aging skin’s sagging and wrinkling.
A Stem cell facial rejuvenation is a non-surgical procedure to replace volume in skin that has sagged due to the aging process. This revolutionary facelift is touted by many plastic surgeons as the future of cosmetic surgery.
It involves taking fat from a person’s body and manipulating it to harvest the stem cells, producing a concentrated form of fat. This super-charged fat is then injected into areas of the face that need volume and lift. The theory is that the injected stem cells are accepted by the person’s own body which then prompts it to grow new fat cells, much like organ transplantation.
This facelift is appropriate for people who have moderate facial aging and who want to preserve or rejuvenate their looks. Because no excess skin is removed, there are no surgical incisions involved. It is performed under local anesthesia and may take as little as an hour to perform.
— — No surgical incisions are involved.
— — Fat to be grafted is harvested through a procedure similar to liposuction.
— — The Stem cell facial rejuvenation lasts long. It plumps and tightens facial skin and stops neck skin from sagging. Some of the transplanted fat will be absorbed back into the body but about 50% of it will stay where it’s been transplanted.
— — Stem cell facelifts can even out facial color differences caused by the sun or by age. The procedure is short, uses local anesthesia, does not necessitate a visit to the hospital and is pain free.
