Skin Rejuvenation with Stem Cells Offers Promising Results

Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on May 5, 2009

j0390226Stem cells are becoming the vital solution for many surgeries and treatments that involve the regrowth of skin tissues, and are now being studied for their effects on skin rejuvenation procedures.

Retail skin rejuvenation products typically contain a combination of liquid collagen, hyaluronic acid and other ingredients that help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and firm up the skin.

A recent study now suggests that stem cells could be a key ingredient in these topical products, and can effectively help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, while enhancing the skin’s texture and firmness.

Scientists and clinical researchers at the International Stem Cell Corporation (ISCC) recently revealed the preliminary results of Parthenogenic Stem Cells for skin rejuvenation treatments. The products made from these compounds contain a combination of stem cells and other ingredients that affect how the sin retains moisture, and how the cells turnover. Continuous use of the product may help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, increase collagen levels, and improve the texture and tone of the skin.

Further testing is needed to determine what can be expected with long-term use of the treatments, but the preliminary data looks very promising. The Parthenogenic Stem Cell discovery is just one of several research programs underway at the research center, and the products are wholly owned by Lifeline Cell Technology. If the products do make it to the consumer market, the company plans to launch a complete skincare line that is supported by the stem cell research.

According to an article in Medical News Today, plastic surgeons are already taking note and looking forward to adding these types of products to their retail lines. Dr. Gregory Keller, a facial plastic surgeon, says that these are just the early stages of a breakthrough in skincare, and may provide some significant long-term benefits in reducing the visible signs of aging.
