Going by a number of names including cell rejuvenation, cell therapy, and regenerative medicine, the objective of this form of therapy is to promote the repair and rejuvenation of diseased, dysfunctional, or injured tissue using stem cells. Stem cells are non-differentiated cells, meaning that they can differentiate into many different types of cells which can then be used to regenerate and renew damaged or diseased cells.
Research has shown that stem cell therapy can help with several different chronic or degenerative conditions, which may include: chronic pain; degenerative joints; Parkinson’s disease; multiple sclerosis; autoimmune conditions; cardiovascular disease, and Crohn’s. Additionally, they have been shown to have the potential to slow down the aging process for an improved performance of your skin and to allow for a more youthful and radiant appearance.
For cosmetic procedures, the most common source of stem cells for rejuvenation therapies are adipose-derived, as they have the highest potential and capability to differentiate into mesenchymal, ectodermal, and endodermal lineages.
There are several procedures in which cell therapy is effectively used, and these include:
• The reduction of wrinkles and fine lines;
• Stimulating major regeneration of the skin in the areas of the face, neck, and hands;
• Aiding in eliminating acne and other blemishes;
• Reducing the appearance of scars and keloids;
• Combating alopecia or other forms of hair loss;
• The atrophy of the buttocks.
The cells which are typically used in cosmetic or aesthetic procedures are mesenchymel, since they help with stimulating the production of collagen, which is an integral part of the skin’s natural rejuvenating abilities. These stem cell therapies easily combine with other cosmetic procedures and have been shown to provide longer lasting results while also encouraging your body’s natural rejuvenation processes.
Cell rejuvenation is an alternative to the traditional facelift or to more conventional injectables, as the therapy involves a series of minimally invasive injections into desired areas – usually various areas of the face and neck – and have the benefit of requiring a short recovery period after treatment. It is important to note that the effects of stem cell rejuvenation are not instantaneous, but take time and occur gradually as the face is naturally enhanced by new, living cells.
Cells our doctor uses at Aegean Medical are undifferentiated cells, meaning that they can evolve into different types of cells, and thus can become any type of cell that may be required in healing and rejuvenating soft tissues.
The primary source of adult cells – which are used in cosmetic cell therapies – are taken primarily from fat reserves, but can also come from the bone marrow or blood. These cells are then used most commonly in similar ways to PRF therapy: to heal injuries, repair damage in the soft tissues, and to regenerate hair follicles to combat hair loss and in a variety of skin treatments to help combat the signs of aging.
