Scars and Stretch Marks Removal
Are you surprised to know that scars and stretch marks removal can also be done using stem cell therapy? It is true!
Human skin has a certain degree of elasticity. But when our skin is stretched beyond a point, typically due to weight gain, pregnancy, hormonal or genetic problems, nutritional deficiency, or due to taking certain types of drugs, it can lead to stretch marks. Stretch marks occur because the collagen and elastin fibers that support the skin and provide its tautness are unable to support the significantly stretched skin. This tears the skin and leads to stretch marks.
Scars and wounds, on the other hand, can be due to various causes – acne, injury, illness, surgery, etc.
Scars or stretch marks demand treatment to heal so that skin may come back in a previous condition. There are many conventional and medical methods that work to treat scarred skin. The effectiveness of these methods varies from person to person. In today’s age, one of the most effective methods for scars and stretch marks removal is by using stem cells.
The results we obtain from removing scars and stretch marks using stem cells are incredible and minimally invasive. The effectiveness of the results achieved is progressively increasing with newer research and techniques. Many people have noticed remarkable results from just a single session.
How are Scars and Stretch Marks Removal performed?
The process of scars and stretch marks removal with stem cells starts by extracting non-programmed and undifferentiated cells from the patient’s own blood or adipose/ fat tissue. This is then processed and made ready for injection into the chosen treatment sites.
The treated stem cells are injected into the treatment areas. Once 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 ultimately starts to recover its texture and tone. The collagen tightens the skin and stretch marks disappear. In scars, the fibrotic tissue of the scar that makes it look unpleasant is gradually removed and fresh new skin takes its place.
Benefits of Scars and Stretch Marks Removal
Adipose or fatty tissues are high in number of stem cells. Called mesenchymal stem cells, these cells are ideal for success in aesthetic treatments due to their ability to transform into any other specific types of cells, depending on where they are injected. So, for example, if applied at scar sites or non-healing wounds, they will generate those restorative cells that will help eliminate or minimize the scars or wounds.
The process is the same as the natural way in which our body heals. Stem cell therapy for scars and stretch marks just boosts or brings alive this natural healing process by stimulating more regenerative cell growth.
Furthermore, another of the properties derived from the use of stem cells is that they can be isolated and preserved indefinitely in cell banks. Excess stem cells can be used for subsequent sessions or alternative aesthetic or regenerative procedures.
Why go for Scars and Stretch Marks removal with Stem Cells?
This treatment gives patients satisfying, fast, and non-risky healing. It is minimally invasive. The skin heals without any scarring. Other treatments are far less effective in the removal of scars and stretch marks. You get smoother, clearer skin, and stretch marks are significantly reduced.
The treatment is completely natural as no foreign particles or chemicals are injected into your body.
Results are visible almost instantly for many people.
What are the risks and side effects?
Any medical procedure can have side effects. With stem cells for scars and stretch marks removal, 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 scar type, recency of scar/ stretch marks, skin condition, age, genetics, and other factors. You may need more than one session to get the full desired results.
