Stem Cells for Wrinkles
Stem Cells for Wrinkles – As we age, we notice visible changes in our body and skin. Wrinkles are one of the most (and first) visible symptoms of aging. From time immemorial, women and men have tried various remedies to minimize and/ or delay the appearance of wrinkles and have smoother younger-looking skin.
Advancements in the field of aesthetics now make it much easier to remove and minimize wrinkles. Wrinkle removal treatments such as Botox, laser skin surfacing, facelift, and fillers are widely popular across the world. But most non-invasive treatments have a limited period of effectiveness – typically only a few months. The surgical treatments are not for everyone and carry their own set of risks.
Modern science now has a new and remarkably effective treatment for wrinkle removal – Stem Cells for Wrinkles. To understand this new technique, it is important to know two things: firstly, how wrinkles are formed; and secondly, what are stem cells and how they function.
Wrinkles are formed when the collagen and elastin fibers that support our skin break down over time due to aging, genetic, and environmental factors. As these connective tissues break, they are no longer able to support the skin as firmly as before. The skin then starts to sag, resulting in wrinkle formation.
Stem cells are un-programmed cells present in our body (in our blood, bone marrow, fatty tissue) that regenerate and can be converted into any other cell type and they then perform the function of that cell type.
In the context of Stem Cells for Wrinkles, the stem cells are used to regenerate the lost collagen and elastin to restore the former youthfulness of your skin.
How are Stem Cells for Wrinkles Performed?
The process of Stem Cells for Wrinkles starts by extracting non-programmed and undifferentiated stem cells from the patient’s own blood or adipose/ fat tissue. These are then processed and made ready for injection into the chosen treatment sites.
Once ready, the treated stem cells are injected into the treatment areas. When injected, the stem cells start their process of tissue regeneration by releasing growth factors. The skin starts the production of collagen and elastin with these new cells. As the skin produces collagen and elastin, it starts to recover its texture and tone. The collagen tightens the skin, improves its elasticity, and fills the wrinkles, making them “disappear” or at least significantly minimizes them.
Benefits of Stem Cells for Wrinkles
Wrinkle filling with stem cells requires less time and causes less pain. The treatment is minimally invasive. According to the age of the patient and the extent of wrinkling, the sessions needed vary, but normally in three to four sessions, the patient can have largely wrinkle-free skin.
When stem cells are reinjected into your face, they not only improve the elasticity of facial skin but also provide tonal benefits. The skin tone becomes fair due to the production of hyaluronic acid. You get multiple benefits with this treatment at one time.
Why should you go for Wrinkle Fillers with Stem Cells?
The above-stated benefits of Stem Cells for Wrinkles make a strong case for choosing them. Additionally, stem cells are 100% natural, since it is your own fatty tissue that is used to harvest them. No foreign substances are involved, unlike other anti-aging injections which involve some type of chemicals being injected into the body.
The results are extremely long-lasting – several years, as compared to fillers, etc. which last only a few months.
What are the Risks and Side Effects?
Any medical procedure can have side effects. With Stem Cells for Wrinkles, risks or side effects are minimal since it is your body’s own fat tissue and stem cells that are used for the treatment. Nevertheless, some temporary pain, bruising, redness, and swelling at the treated sites is likely. Results may also vary from person to person depending on skin type, how deep the wrinkles are, age, genetics, and other factors.
You may need more than one session to get the full desired results. It may also be noted that while the results from stem cell wrinkle fillers are quite long-lasting, the natural aging process would mean that the skin will start to show signs of aging after a few years.
