StemCell Facelift is a complete facial rejuvenation procedure without involving any surgery; it is the process whereby the hidden genetic potential of adult stem cells is awakened. The procedure restores the youthful contour and shape of the face as well as skin tightness and evens out color irregularities cause by the aging process and environmental sun exposure.
StemCell Facelift utilizes the latest in anti-aging facial rejuvenation technology by using your own chemistry and cells with platelet rich plasma technology and manipulating collagen induction. This is also referred to as autologous cellular regeneration (ACR).
Autologous cellular regeneration harnesses a new approach to clients seeking an increased and natural method to rejuvenation. The treatment naturally increases the levels of collagen, keratin, hyaluronic acid, and elastin in your skin, and promotes angiogenesis, components that decrease with increasing age. Used in combination therapy it can also potentiate the results of other anti-aging modalities.
Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma Technology
Platelet rich plasma possesses incredible regenerative power; platelets release numerous growth factors and attract stem cells that stimulate proliferation of fibroblasts and keratinocytes which produce collagen, elastin, and keratin. The stem cells from the growth factors can change into epidermal cells that are normally present in the outer layer of the skin, fibroblasts in the dermis or even pre-adipocytes which are cells with the ability to convert into fat cells, important in the face to maintain plumpness. At the same time, production of new extra-cellular matrix, hyaluronic acid, and production of microscopic vessels take place.
Platelet rich plasma is easily separated from blood, through a process of centrifugation. Using your enriched plasma permits the body to heal faster and more efficiently, because your own plasma is used, there is no danger of disease transmission, anaphylaxis or neoplasia.

Process of Facial Rejuvenation
A full medical history will be taken prior to your treatment and there will be an opportunity to discuss all aspects with your cosmetic physician. The physician will assess the degree of skin aging, perform a skin analysis, and recommend a sensible treatment with reasonable outcomes. A photograph of the skin is taken to assist the follow-up and grading of the improvement.
The platelet rich plasma is injected by mesotherapy technique, its injected into the dermis under local anesthesia. The process is relatively painless providing sufficient topical anesthesia is applied.
Results are visible at 4 to 6 weeks and improve gradually over ensuing months with improvement in texture and tone, creating a natural result. Cosmetic and light therapies can enhance the results. Advanced wrinkling cannot be reversed and results may not be very effective for patients who smoke or consume excessive alcohol or drugs, platelet rich plasma is poor in such patients.
Expect minimal swelling, bruising and redness for 12-24 hours. There will be some short-lasting pinkness or redness of the skin following the therapy. A bruise at the venapuncture may be visible for 2-3 days.
Improvement in wrinkles as well as the tone and texture of the skin can be achieved with just one treatment, however, for advance wrinkling and scarring additional treatments may be required at 4-6 week intervals. Treatment result varies however in most patients the results last up to 12-18 months. Touch –up treatments will maintain the results as well. However your clinician will determine your treatment protocol according to your skin condition.
