Stem Cells in Dermatology and Anti-aging Care of the Skin
Cosmetic Clinic Dubai | 30 September 2019
Aging is a natural, complex process; the cumulative effect of genetics, environmental impacts, and normal wear and tear on our bodies eventually take their toll in a myriad of different ways. It is this consequence of living your life that can simply bring unavoidable health problems.
Over time, the cells of the body become progressively damaged and die. Dead cells are replaced too slowly to compensate for this loss. The signs of aging begin to appear along with health issues like impaired hearing and vision; loss of muscle strength and bone mass; decreased immunity and cognition, and inefficient metabolism.
Aging cells contribute to disease. If aging in cells can be prevented, slowed down, or even reversed, many diseases could be controlled or cured. Stem cell research and related regenerative medicine therapies are being looked at for providing solutions to many of life’s problems.
What are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are the essential building blocks of our bodies. They are unique in that they have the ability to change, evolve, duplicate, and adapt into other types of cells – the essence of body regeneration. Stem cells have the potential to develop into many cell types in the body.
They lie dormant in bone marrow and fat stores. Once damage occurs, cytokines (proteins in our immune system), send signals that trigger them. Stem cells scout out damaged areas and then differentiate into the specific form of cell required to help heal.
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a particular type of adult stem cell that are easy to extract and are not as controversial as embryonic stem cells. MSCs are currently seen as a useful treatment for dozens of pathological conditions and disorders, from cancer to heart disease. These stem cells are a core factor in skin, muscle, cartilage, and bone regeneration.
Anti-Aging Stem Cell Treatment
Stem cell therapies are the ultimate anti-aging treatment. They are unique because they use a patient’s own stem cells and can be transplanted where they are needed. Treatments replenish the body with a fresh supply of concentrated stem cells to allow the repair and rejuvenation process in all organs, including skin. This is where the most obvious effects can be seen.
Unlike plastic surgery that addresses surface looks alone and not the cause, stem cells replace, regrow, repair and rejuvenate on a cellular level that goes far beyond appearances. They restore more youthful levels of energy and resolve age-related damage to face, body, and organs.
Anti-aging therapy improves the overall health, strength, and function of organs and cells, making them younger, stronger, and robust. They allow you to be more active and feel youthful again.
Impressive results have been seen in all age groups, regardless of gender and ethnicity.
The adipose tissue is harvested and put through centrifugation to separate the MSCs and make them highly concentrated. The serum is injected back into the patient immediately after processing. In some cases where precision placement is needed, an ultrasound-guided injection can be utilized. This outpatient treatment takes only a few hours with no downtime. Mild to moderate discomfort may be felt at the site of harvesting and re-injection. Pain medication is rarely required. Patients can resume normal activities immediately.
Most patients do very well with a single infusion. Others may require two or three more in the span of a year.
Results of Anti-aging Stem Cell Treatment
Stem cell anti-aging therapy is the most advanced and modern approach available for slowing, and even reversing, the aging process in humans. Moreover, anti-aging stem cell therapy helps strengthen the remaining cells so they last longer, encouraging new healthy cell growth.
Both male and female adults who have undergone stem cell infusion report:
