As we grow older, our natural stem cells gradually and inevitably diminish, along with the ability to reproduce new replacement cells throughout the body. At the epidermal level, skin becomes thinner, more sensitive to irritation, and more prone to wrinkles, freckles, and age spots.
Thanks to the uncanny reparative properties of Stem Cell Therapy,reintroducing living, high-quality Stem Cells into the body, it is essentially regarded as a miraculous breakthrough within the medical community, clinically proven to successfully rejuvenate existing cells for more efficient productivity and self-propagation. The aesthetics field, in particular, has successfully applied the use of stem cell in anti-aging treatment procedures to virtually turn back the hands of time with exemplary results.
At a fundamental level, Live Stem Cell Therapy assists the replacement of old cells with the reproduction of healthy new cells. Using new stems cells recharges the ability to repair older cells within the body or on a recipient area such as on the face and skin. The result is healthier looking skin, improved complexion, and brighter skin tone.
Cellular therapy is a scientific method developed in Switzerland by Prof. Paul Niehans to regenerate human tissue and revitalize the body.
The method consists of implanting cell extracts of mammals selected for their biological value, which modulate the immune system and thus improve the function of certain specific organs and enhance the vitality of the entire organism.
Professor Niehans discovered the cell therapy in 1931 by chance, as one of his colleagues asked for assistance in an emergency case. During an operation on the thyroid gland, the parathyroid gland was damaged, and subsequently the patient was suffering from strong convulsions and in critical condition. Dr. Niehans did not have time to perform a surgical transplant of the whole gland, so he used a trocart to prepare a solution formulated from parathyroid cells obtained from a calf. The patient not only made a full recovery, but lived for an additional 25 years, and the success of this therapy led Dr. Niehans to abandon the surgical transplantation of intact glands for doing only implants through injections.
Since then, many physicians in Europe, especially in Germany, have contributed to research into Live Cell Therapy, as Cellular Therapy is supported by more than 3,000 scientific publications, a number which grows day by day. The ability of using one cell type to repair and restore other cell types, sometimes referred to as “Cells Healing Cells” theory, gained widespread acclaim among the upper class of Europe and high net worth individuals from around the world. In order to recapture the appearance of youth and vitality, they would fly to Dr. Niehans’ exclusive clinic in Switzerland to undergo the highly expensive Live Cell Therapy aesthetic treatments.
Stem cells are biological cells found in all multicellular organisms, that can divide (through mitosis) and differentiate into diverse specialized cell types and can self-renew to produce more stem cells. In mammals, there are two broad types of stem cells:
- These types of cell are undifferentiated cells, found throughout the body after development, that multiply by cell division to replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissues.
- Able to divide or self-renew indefinitely, and generate all the cell types of the organ from which they originate, potentially regenerating the entire organ from a few cells.
- Can form new cells of different types as needed
The organic material used in aesthetic rejuvenation treatment for men and women are Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) which are Adult Stem Cells.
MSC are stem cells which have the remarkable ability to transmute into various types of cells in the body. They are considered universal donor cells, which can be used for transplant into any patient without risk of rejection, and are thus perfectly suited for Cell Therapy treatments.
For aesthetic rejuvenation treatment, Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) can act as the initial building blocks for Connective Tissue, which include collagen and elastin, as well for blood vessels and fatty tissue. They can help the skin become more resilient, feel smoother, and appear brighter.
As each individual has varying needs, the first step is to come in for a consultation with a doctor who specializes in treating skin, in order to determine the amount of stem cells needed for treatment, as well as consider recommendations of complementary treatment options that may increase overall effectiveness.
