STEM CELL THERAPY
Stem Cell for Hair Loss and Nonsurgical Facelift
Stem cell therapy, also known as regenerative medicine, is an exciting and rapidly expanding field. Stem cells harness your body’s natural healing powers and can be used for many reasons.
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells capable of both integration and multiplication, which means that these cells not only divide and multiply in number, but also differentiate into specialized cells and tissues. They are like building blocks that can be encouraged to form into new, healthy tissues to replace diseased or injured cells.
At MAXiM, our affiliated physicians use stem cells as a nonsurgical facelift and to help grow hair follicles. Stem cells are extracted from fat tissue in your body and injected into areas of your face or scalp.
Stem Cell Therapy for Facelifts
As you age, your face and body begins to show signs of everyday wear and tear. Not to mention that other factors – such as sun and wind exposure, gravity, and a loss of collagen – all combine to make you appear older in the form of facial wrinkles, drooping jowls, and other signs of aging. However, regenerative cell therapy may help restore the youthful appearance that time has taken away.
Using stem cells as a nonsurgical facelift involves taking a fat sample, extracting the cells, and injecting them into targeted areas of the face. Stem cells work by stimulating cell and tissue growth to replace lost volume and depleted collagen. Stem cell therapy can restore the natural fat pads that fill your face and firm up flaccid areas, creating a more youthful appearance.
You may be a candidate for stem cell therapy if you have:
- Noticeable laugh lines
- Jowls or a flabby jawline
- Bags under your eyes
- Deep creases and wrinkles
Stem Cell Therapy Hair Restoration
Stem cells have been shown to reverse the shrinking of hair follicles. Your MAXiM-affiliated surgeon will perform a mini-liposuction to obtain stem cells from your own fat tissue, process and concentrate the cells, and then inject them into your scalp to promote new hair growth.
Once transferred to the scalp, stem cells develop into the specialized type of cells found in hair follicles and begin to carry out the function of those cells. In this way, we can regrow hair follicles in balding areas of the scalp.
Candidates for stem cell therapy in hair restoration include those in the early stages of hair loss or who have thinning hair. Patients who are not candidates for surgery may also benefit from stem cell therapy. The procedure is typically combined with PRP therapy for maximum effectiveness.
