Stem Cell Facelift – The Next Anti Aging Breakthrough?

Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on October 24, 2008

Stem Cell Facelift to Get Rid of WrinklesInjectable fillers, microdermabrasion and laser facial rejuvenation procedures are some of the most popular anti aging solutions on the market, but an innovative facelift procedure made with stem cells is on the horizon.

The official ‘Stem Cell Facelift’ is currently undergoing comprehensive testing by researchers and plastic surgeons around the country, and will be presented at the International Academy of Aesthetic Medicine in Miami, FL on November 2.

The treatment is one of the latest non-invasive facial procedures designed to tighten and tone the skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve the contours of the face.

This no-needle facelift works by injecting the patient’s own stem cells into key facial compartments so that the skin can begin to restore and repair itself naturally.

Most adults store an excess number of stem cells in the lower abdominal area, an area that is often considered to be a ‘problem area’ for men and women who want a smooth and sculpted midsection.  While this procedure won’t eliminate a large amount of fatty tissue from the abdominal region, it does involve extracting a high number of stem cells from the fat, and transplanting these cells into the face.

Dr. Vincent Giampapa, a Certified Anti-Aging Medical Physician and Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon is leading the demonstrations in Miami, and will use only local anesthesia to numb the facial tissues and extract the fat needed for the transplant. reports that this procedure will cost approximately $5,000, and the result may be the ‘long term improvement that enhances skin quality and youthful contours of the face’, and that ‘the skin and fatty layers are induced to produce more of their own cells’ as a result of the treatment.  Downtime is just under one week, and patients can resume their makeup and skincare routine shortly after the healing period is over.
