Fibroblast active stem cell treatment is a process that allows us to inject patient”s own fibroblasts into the skin to produce new collagen and elastin.
Fibroblast stem cell treatment is a breakthrough antiaging procedure that promises to eliminate wrinkles and smooth skin by injecting a patient’s own amped-up collagen-producing cells into problem areas to erase years of UV damage and have a glowing complexion without it looking unnatural.
With development of the medicine and technology, it is aimed the stem cells can be renewed by being separated with tissue engineering techniques. Stem cells are the cells that have characteristics of pioneering all other cells and both having the ability to refresh itself and also turning into other cells.
HOW IS FIBROCELL PREPARED
After a skin biopsy which is 2-3 mm taken from usually behind the ear,or sunless areas like inguinal region or forearm ,the cells are sent to a special fibrocell ,stem cell laboratory.
4-6 weeks after the biopsy ,the fibrocells are increased and produced within laboratory environment.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE THERE IN FIBROCELL TREATMENT?
The application is repeated 3 times with 3-4 week intervals.
AMOUNT OF FIBROCELL IN EACH SESSION
At the stage of application, an average of 5 cc is prepared by the company and delivered to our clinic. This volume has an average of 70-80 million fibrocell stem cells.
The injection is applied to the whole face or decolte or wherever needed with special micro needles.
WHEN IS THE EFFECT OF STEM CELL INJECTION SEEN?
Although being seen of the effect changes depending on with what purpose it is performed, it shows up after the 2nd application and increasingly continues till 1 year.
HOW LONG DOES THE RESULT LAST?
None of the treatments against aging can be permanent for a lifetime. However, the cultured fibroblast transfer is permanent for about 3-5 years, and collagen production continues.
-It is very comforting for patients who are “wary of injecting anything foreign into the body”
-Bruising and swelling are the most common side effects but patients can return to their daily routine same day after the injection.
