A facelift has traditionally been a costly surgical procedure with high risks and sometimes unsatisfactory results. If you’re not ready for a surgical facelift just yet, there’s a popular, new procedure that is minimally invasive yet very effective at brightening your face.
Imagine getting a complete facial rejuvenation in a cost-effective, low-risk process without having to undergo any incisions or lifting of your facial skin. This procedure is called a stem cell facelift, and it harnesses the regenerative power of your body’s own stem cells to provide a more youthful appearance to your complexion.
What Do Stem Cells Do in a Facelift?
For your stem cell facelift, the doctor will first extract some of your own adipose tissue (fat tissue) from another part of your body. Your cells will then be processed in a lab to separate out the stem cells, and these stem cells are what will be injected into your facial tissues. The stem cells are mixed with a special combination of growth factors.
The stem cells that are injected into the face will mimic and help stimulate the cells around them, facilitating and encouraging natural processes to occur. As we get older, some of these natural processes slow down, so the stem-cell treatment helps to perk them back up again.
The doctor then makes tiny injections around specific areas of the face with this stem cell compound. Overall, the procedure restores plumpness to improve the volume of the face, while the stem cells continue to help improve skin elements – such as texture and tone – helping to produce smoother, younger-looking skin.
What Can I Expect from a Stem Cell Facelift?
When receiving your stem cell facelift, your doctor will place you under a local anesthetic.
They will then extract fatty tissue from your abdomen or thigh area via a small needle. Adipose cells have higher stem cell concentrations than other areas of the body, so it is the preferred source from which to extract your stem cells.
Growth factors are then added to the cells. This solution is then injected into the face to help foster the existing cells to regrow and rebound into fresher-looking skin.
The final touch is usually a chemical resurfacing of the skin that smooths fine lines and skin damage while stimulating the underlying stem cells. This process creates a full facial rejuvenation, boosting the plumpness while improving the quality of the skin. You can discuss all of the possibilities with your doctor here at MAXiM.
