No longer is surgery required for anti-aging or making one look younger because Adult Stem Cells are now being used as an alternative to a facelift- no surgery required!
The stem cells being used are taken from the patient’s fat- so they are autologous adult stem cells ie. the patient’s own stem cells so there are no rejection issues. Here is how it works:
Process of Stem Cells
- Patients have fat cells removed from their stomach using a needle and local anesthetic
- Stem Cells are extracted from the fat cells and multiplied
- Two weeks later, patient returns to hospital.
- Doctors inject the stem cells into the face in a series of shots that plump out skin, erase wrinkles and give the patient a youthful appearance
- No surgery required!
