“Stem Cell” Facelift

Is there really a “Stem Cell” facelift available in United States yet?  

           The concept is to isolate a patient’s multi potential cells, inject them beneath the skin, and  truly stimulate the rejuvenation of the overlying skin and increase the volume of the underlying tissues leading to a more youthful appearance.

          We do “fat injections” to the face and other parts of the body.  It does contain a small amount of stem cells, and it does increase volume and improves the quality of the overlying skin.  It just is not really a true “Stem Cell Facelift” – because it would contain a more concentrated number of the actual stem cells.  There are a few sites in the country working on making them available – but none  yet.
