Aesthetics

The use of adipose-derived stem cells is a natural progression in aesthetic medicine. Through the use of stem cell therapy, regenerative medicine is a revolutionary approach to improve aesthetic enhancements such as fat grafting and skin rejuvenation.

The loss of turgor (quality of the skin and of subcutaneous fat), the prominence of veins and tendons, and increased pigmentation are all signs of aging. Stem cell therapy are designed to turn back the clock, replacing the lost tissue using a patient’s own fat and stem cells. Often called a “stem cell facelift” or “supercharged fat grafting,” using stem cells in addition to fat attempts to increase survivability of the fat that is transferred, promote new cellular turnover, improve the tone and texture of surface skin and decrease the likelihood of rejection.

These procedures offer a more natural and longer lasting effect than the many “filler” products that are currently available and place cell regenerating plasma directly under the skin. Current therapies include facial fat transfer, hand fat transfer and skin rejuvenation.

Non-Healing Wounds

Wound healing requires a coordinated interplay among cells, growth factors and extracellular matrix proteins. This cascade of healing is initiated by mesenchymal stem cells. These self-renewing multipotent stem cells coordinate the repair response by multiplying, recruiting other host cells and secreting growth factors and matrix proteins.

These stem cells have the ability to differentiate into various lineages of mesenchymal origin such as skin, bone, cartilage, tendon and fat. In addition, mesenchymal stem cells also regulate immune response and inflammation and possess powerful tissue reparative mechanisms due to the presence of key growth factors and cytokines uniquely suited for wound repair. Studies have shown that stem cell therapy has been successful in treating chronic wounds and stimulating healing processes from stalled wounds.
