Stem cells are the building blocks of the body. They can help repair injury and heal illness. They can also help your hair and skin regenerate. At Kalos, stem cell treatment is also popular for non-surgical facelifts!
Three Types of Cellular Options Available
There are three types of stem cells that may be used for facial and cosmetic surgery: platelet rich plasma (PRP), adipose tissue, and bone marrow. Each type comes with pros and cons on an individual level, but Dr. Stong is the only surgeon offering the use of all three.
- PRP facials are the most commonly used, as the cells are the most easily accessed. Blood is drawn from your body, then spun in a centrifuge. This produces a thick plasma that is rich in platelets, which also help boost collagen production and skin rejuvenation.
- Adipose tissue, or fatty tissue, is the most stem cell rich tissue available for use in cosmetic procedures. It can be injected to increase the volume and regenerative ability of the skin. However, since adipose tissue is bulky, it is not a good choice when a loss of volume is not a problem, since it can make the face look puffy.
- Bone marrow may be the most difficult to access source of stem cells. But it has the advantage of not creating an over-inflated look, and has a much higher concentration of stem cells than PRP. Like adipose tissue, it can be injected in places that need help with elasticity and healing.
Stem Cell treatment can help your skin look and feel younger by putting the building blocks for healthy, supple skin right where they are needed!
