As we grow older, we may start noticing our youth fade, and certain physical changes occur, such as wrinkles, sun damage, and maybe even graying hair- mostly problems we’ve heard our parents complain about, and never thought we’d face. The beauty business has been working hard to create and advance thousands of remedies, creams and injections to try and give people a chance to delay their aging, if only for a moment.
Along with dermatologist prescribed or store-bought products, surgery has also been a go-to for those extremely dedicated to their appearance. Typically, people can get a face-lift, in which their skin is physically tightened back and readjusted at the hairline. A recently developed face-lift procedure, called a stem-cell face-lift, eliminates the need for surgery at all, and utilizes stem-cells from subcutaneous fat found in the lower abdomen or inner thighs.
The procedure works by suctioning a small amount of the previously chosen subcutaneous fat via a small needle puncture. Subcutaneous fat in the lower abdomen and inner thigh regions have been found to have high concentrations of stem cells. The obtained fat is then mixed with growth factors, which are embedded in micro-hyaluronic, allowing the growth factors to be released periodically over the course of 3 months. Additionally, using multi-planer technique, fat and stem cells are transplanted to the face. This technique differs from a typical surgical face-lift due to the multi-planer nature, because the skin rejuvenation can occur at each level naturally and create an even look. The procedure takes place in three levels of the skin, so while the top layer of the skin is modified, the skin underneath is being altered gradually as well.
Although the effects of this procedure are not permanent, and eventually the effects of aging take effect, this procedure is extremely effective in temporarily prolonging aging. The beauty industry is forever evolving, and the demand for anti-aging products will continue to become more advanced, and less invasive.
