Know Your Stem Cells – A Guide to Cosmetic Applications
Despite their positive impacts on our everyday lives, scientific advancements have a way of stirring up controversy. It wasn’t that long ago that American news networks couldn’t get enough of Dolly, the cloned sheep. And way back in the 1860s, even the concept of “germs” was enough to inflame debate. Of course, the present moment is no exception. Stem cells specifically have seen their share of bickering, myths, and flat-out lies.
What the average adult doesn’t know about stem cells can and does fill books. These remarkable precursor human materials can be harvested from your own, adult body to facilitate positive effects on longevity, youthfulness, and vitality.
That’s why Dr. Ryan Welter and his team at Regeneris Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery routinely find themselves informing patients about the source and utility of these wonderful cells. By harnessing the power of your own stem cells, the possibilities are nearly limitless. But what are stem cells? How are they used? And what can they do to enhance your beauty, youth, vitality, and overall quality of life?
Cosmetic Stem Cells – A Regeneris Guide
What are Stem Cells?
At a point in your early development, the cells that make up your body started deciding what they wanted to be based on their innate programming and with input from external stimuli. Like children going off to college, each cluster of cells devoted itself to one function or another. Some cells became biceps while others congregated to form your prefrontal cortex. Some cells, however (just like some students), never went down a specific path. They remain in an undecided state. These are stem cells.
Raw stem cells are blank canvases, waiting on external input to decide how and where to function. When harvested from adult tissue and reapplied elsewhere, these cells communicate with their new environment and can be encouraged to rejuvenate skin, blood vessels, muscle, or other tissues.
Where do Stem Cells Come From?
Stem cells are hiding in your adult body right this very second. Deep in fatty tissue or tucked away in bone, you’ll find untapped stem cells. These cells would generally be used as back up cells or progenitor cells, ready to grow into the adult tissue they reside in. For cosmetic uses, stem cells are most often harvested from accessible fatty deposits through a small liposuction procedure.
Once extracted, these stem cells are further filtered and treated for use in cosmetic applications. For extra potency, Dr. Ryan Welter and his team may combine your stem cells with platelet-rich plasma (PRP)—another regenerative ingredient found in your own bloodstream. Growth factors from PRP help vitalize the stem cells causing them to activate and stimulate the target tissue. These cellular interactions can cause rejuvenation and a host of other positive influences.
How are Stem Cells Used in Cosmetic/Aesthetic Treatments?
Because they’re so acrobatic, stem cells can be used in dozens of areas. Here are just a handful of ways your own stem cells can improve your life at Regeneris Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery.
O-Stem & P-Stem for Sexual Wellness
At Regeneris, we believe that satisfying intimacy is a cornerstone of the human experience. That’s why we use stem cells to encourage sexual wellness and enhanced gratification for men and women alike.
Our O-Stem and P-Stem procedures combine harvested stem cells with PRP to create a regenerative serum. When reapplied, this serum can combat erectile dysfunction, improve vaginal dryness, tighten the vaginal walls, and ultimately put the “O” back into orgasms.
Stem Cell Facials
Similar to the O-Stem & P-Stem treatments, a stem cell facial starts with a combination of PRP and stem cells. This facial serum is applied topically and then pressed into the lower layers of skin with a microneedling procedure.
Microneedling gets to work by boosting collagen production while the PRP/stem cell serum encourages the literal regeneration of tired cells. Together, these two biological phenoms reduce fine lines, eliminate hyperpigmentation, and quicken the healing of new and old scars—especially those from acne.
Stem Cell Therapy
Because they come from you and are (for all intents and purposes) part of you, stem cells can go anywhere on your body to assume the role you want them to play. Stem cell therapy uses targeted serums and various techniques to provide adjacent results to some of the most popular cosmetic surgeries.
Without scalpels or general anesthesia, stem cell therapies (like the cells themselves) take many forms, including:
- Non-Surgical Breast Lift
- Non-Surgical Facelift
- Non-Surgical Neck Lift
- Hand Rejuvenation
- Anti-Aging Treatments
- Sexual Wellness
- Hair Restoration
