Autologous Stem Cell Therapy

Type of procedure - Surgery

Duration of the procedure:

30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the area to be treated

Type of anaesthesia:

local anaesthesia with sedation

Type of Stay:

Outpatient treatment

Presentable:

after about a week

Indication:

Similarly to Autologous stem cell therapy, but for patient that require more regenerative effect that volume. Stem cells are further concentrated from fatty tissue until a so called “NanoGel” with very high stem cell count is produced. 
This is injected to areas that require treatment using special blunt cannulas. 
Deep nasolabial folds, i.e. creases that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth
Frown lines (glabellar lines) between the eyebrows 
A furrowed brow
Hollow temples
Periorbital dark rings 
Crow’s feet
Wrinkled upper lips


Operation:

Autologous fat is taken for example, from the patient’s own abdominal wall, buttocks or thighs as in liposuction. The fatty tissue which has been removed is then refined in a process we have specially adapted (a modification of the Coleman process). This processed fat from the patient’s own body is rich in stem cells and is re-injected using fine cannula.

The advantages of this treatment are that a larger area can be infiltrated. The stem cells increase the thickness of the skin and thereby smooth out the wrinkles. In addition, blood circulation is improved by the growth factors in the fat transplant, creating a fresh, rosy skin colour. The effects of an autologous fat injection usually last considerably longer than those of artificial fillers, since a considerable number of the re-injected fat cells are engrafted.

After the operation:

Wear a compression garment for 4 weeks
Avoid make-up for 4 days
Avoid strenuous activity such as sports for 4 weeks
