Stem Cells Scottsdale
The cells in our bodies are capable of amazing things. Our bodies contain numerous types of cells with unique compositions and specialized functions. Stem cells are essentially the raw material that these cells are composed of. Stem cells can naturally divide into new cells called daughter cells that can take the form of more stem cells or of one of the specialized cells in the body.
What does this mean? For our purposes, it means that stem cells can be used to replace damaged or dead skin cells, trigger the skin-renewal process, and stimulate the production of collagen.
Stem cells have the power to rejuvenate your skin and restore the youthful beauty of your appearance. At Sensational Skin, we can use stem-cell treatments to revitalize the beauty of your face and even promote hair growth.
Where Do the Stem Cells Come From?
The stem cells we use in treatments at Sensational Skin are extracted from umbilical cords. The umbilical cord contains blood that is rich with stem cells. The stem cells can be easily harvested from the umbilical cord without causing any harm to the mother and child.
How Stem Cells Can Rejuvenate Your Skin
When stem cells divide into new specialized cells, they take on the form of the cells in their current environment; if the stem cells are injected into the skin, they can become skin cells. This activates the skin-renewal process, where the former stem cells help to kickstart and fuel the process as old and damaged cells are replaced by new fresh cells.
The stem cells will promote the production of collagen in the skin. Collagen is an essential protein that the body produces. It gives the skin its strength and keeps it tight and smooth. Over time, the body slowly decreases its production.
The stem cells kickstart collagen production, which helps to reduce the appearance of:
• Fine lines
• Sagging skin
Stem cells can also be used as a part of a non-surgical facelift. The procedure combines dermal-filler injections with stem-cell injections. The dermal fillers add instant volume and help to give the skin a plump and youthful appearance right away.
As the dermal filler slowly dissipates over the coming months, the collagen produced by the stem-cell injections helps to maintain the results of the treatment long after the dermal filler has gone.
Stem Cells for Hair Restoration
The same rejuvenating stem-cell properties can also be applied to hair restoration. The stem cells are injected into the areas of the scalp where noticeable hair loss is occurring. These stem cells help promote hair growth and provide essential growth factors that nourish the hairs as they grow and keep them strong and healthy.
