Stem Cell Facelift
What is a stem cell facelift?
The Stem Cell FaceLift is a non-surgical, no downtime, and form of facial rejuvenation that uses your own natural blood cells to lift and restore the healthy glow to the skin of the face.
Robert Andrews Laser and Medical Aesthetics offers the Stem Cell FaceLift to improve the skin of the face without invasive surgery. The aim of the Stem Cell FaceLift is to make the skin appear younger with more volume, better color, and a healthy glow. Although some may have a subtle change the results can be impressive leaving you with a more youthful complexion and a radiant glow!
Good candidates for this procedure are men and women who are not looking for the dramatic results of a face lift or would never consider any other injectable fillers. Patients who are looking to give their face a more youthful and natural appearance are ideal candidates for the Stem Cell FaceLift.
The combination of products is what sets this technique apart from its face lift and injectable filler counterparts. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes and starts with blood being drawn from the patient. The blood is taken the same way it would be for a normal blood test. Once blood has been collected, it is then centrifuged and the platelets are separated from the red blood cells.
The platelets are then introduced to a calcium chloride solution which causes the platelets to release growth factors. Small amounts of synthetic injectable fillers like Restylane or Juvederm may be added to the mixture as well if needed. Once all of the ingredients have been combined, a small gauge needle is used to inject the product into specific areas of the face which has been numbed with a topical gel. The procedure is very tolerable with minimal discomfort and little downtime.
The Stem Cell FaceLift works at the stem cell level, generating new tissue. The procedure can restore volume, color, and a healthy glow to your skin.
The procedure produces immediate results with improvement continuing for approximately 12 weeks. Results lasts at least 9 months to 2 years.
