One of the latest techniques of regenerative medicine actually uses body fat for facial rejuvenation!
Regenerative medicine, is the concept of using your body’s own healing abilities (instead of drugs and surgery) to heal damage. Regenerative medicine has already shown promise in the use of stem cells. It can be used to regrow eye tissue for damaged corneas and it can even help repair heart and muscle tissue.
Many believe that regenerative medicine may fundamentally change the practice of medicine in the years ahead.
The techniques of regenerative medicine can also help combat symptoms of age. They also provide safer and more natural aesthetic procedures.
Fat and Facial Rejuvenation
Fat tissue is an unlikely source for facial rejuvenation, but it is still effective. Fat actually has the highest concentration of mesenchymal cells compared to than any other tissue in the body.
Mesenchymal cells are cells that can stimulate the growth of new cells in the procedure, known as “fat grafting”. Fat grafting is when a plastic surgeon will take fat from areas in the body where fat tends to build up, such as the thighs.
Then they use this fat as fillers for facial rejuvenation. These fillers are similar to more toxic substances such as Botox.
Plastic surgeons have used the procedure for facial rejuvenation and many other cosmetic purposes. It can also be very helpful in repairing damage from injuries, and congenital deformities, such as a cleft palate.
Some doctors are considering the technique as a safer and more natural method of breast augmentation as well.
PRP and The Vampire Facelift®
This procedure is not the first time that we have found success in using something from your own body, instead of dangerous toxins.
I have had great success with facial rejuvenation for both men and women using something known as PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP is made from your own blood, so it is 100% biocompatible, and has no side effects.
PRP uses the healing factors and stem cells in your blood in a safe and effective surgery-free procedure that brings about facial rejuvenation.
The procedure is called the Vampire Facelift®. It does not give you immortality, but it does use your own blood, hence the name. The Vampire Face Lift ® is all the rage among Hollywood celebrities. In fact, it was part of the $100,000.00 conciliation prize “goodie bag” given to this past year’s Oscar nominees.
The remarkable procedure combines the effectiveness of natural dermal fillers, with the proven ability of PRP to restore lost volume and stimulate the regeneration of new skin cells.
With the Vampire Facelift® you can expect:
- A rapid recovery time
- No scarring whatsoever
- An almost immediate more youthful “glow” to your skin
- Smoother looking skin
- Increased production of collagen and stem cells over time, resulting in firmer, more youthful looking skin
- Results that can last from 9-18 months
