Stem Cell facelift
Stem cell face lift is a facial rejuvenation procedure that is done without the use of surgery. Stem cells are located in the fat cells, they help in maintaining normal regeneration of organs like skin and blood and they also replenish specialized cells like those lost in the face during the normal aging process. The cells are harvested from the body through liposuction they are then spinned down after which they are reinserted into the area where they are needed, the patient is both the recipient and donor since the stem cells are harvested from his/her own body.
The procedure restores the shape and youthfulness of the face, color and tightens the skin. It takes about an hour under local anesthesia; recovery from the procedure is around one week. The down side of this procedure is that it might not have any long term effects. Serious side effects as a result of this procedure are yet to be discovered.
Stem Cell facelift is a relatively new and non invasive way of doing facelift by injecting patient’s fat into their own face. The injected cells will rejuvenate the skin and improve it’s texture and make patients look years younger.
As the name itself suggests, The Procedure of Stem Cell Facelift is done by taking cells from the patients lower abdomen and the stem cells are then separated from fat cells and finally injected into patient’s face. The procedure usually takes about 25 to 30 minutes and patients usually will not feel any discomfort during and after the stem cell facelift.
As stem cell facelift is only done by injection, there is virtually no recovery period and patients who have received a stem cell facelift can go shopping immediately.
Stem Cell facelift will last for quite a long time, between 5 to 10 years depending on your lifestyle, as the average life of grafted fat is over 7 years. The cost of a stem cell facelift varies between $8000 to $10,000 which is quite worth it for a painless facelift surgery that can last so long!
