What is Stem Cell Treatment?

Stem cell treatments are used as non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedures that harness the science of stem cells to help the body create more collagen and fill in tissues with healthy blood flow, resulting in a glowing, youthful appearance. Of the trillions of cells that make up the human body, stem cells are among the few cells in the body that can transform between cell types and have the potential to become a needed cell type and replace worn and damaged cells that they encounter.

A large number of stem cells exist in fat tissue. When stem cells are transplanted with fat in the different parts of their body, most of them grow and exist in these new areas, helping to form new tissue at the transplanted site. By using the regenerative properties of stem cells along with transplanted fat, a marked improvement of these tissues occurs. The treatment helps improve the contour and shape of the face, skin color and irregularities caused by normal aging, and skin imperfections caused by exposure to the sun and environment.

Stem Cell First Step

What’s the
first step?

The first step in getting a stem cell treatment for skin rejuvenation in Houston is to schedule an in-person appointment with Dr. Hankins at Premier Plastic Surgery. Dr. Hankins will talk to you about your skin’s health history, including any past or chronic skin conditions, your aesthetic goals, the target area, and any concerns you might have. He will then examine areas of your body where the necessary amount of fat can be harvested to supply the stem cells and discuss the best way to tackle the procedure for your medical profile. Remember that this consultation is valuable for asking questions or expressing concerns.

Should he deem you a suitable candidate, Dr. Hankins will create a treatment plan for you, which you can then take to our patient coordinator to schedule and price out. You will also receive pre-operative instructions, which you should take seriously to ensure the most comfortable procedure experience and fastest recovery.

What to Expect From a Stem Cell Treatment

On the day of your stem cell treatment, Dr. Hankins will meet with you to review the steps and goals of your procedure. The procedure is very straightforward and can be performed under local anesthesia. It’s fast, primarily free of pain or discomfort, and does not require hospital visits.

Liposuction is used on belly fat or other fat areas to gently remove stem cells. Stem cells are also harvested from your blood and bone marrow. They are then isolated and injected into the face. The power of stem cells improves skin, tightens it, and makes wrinkles disappear.

The procedure involves injecting stem cells into specific areas of the face, chin, or lips and allowing the specialist to sculpt or remove fat from specific areas to create a facial contour specifically designed to fit each patient’s needs. The entire procedure can take as little as five to ten minutes.

The duration of the procedure’s results depends on the individual’s aging process. Other factors that affect the procedure’s success include poor eating habits, exposure to sunlight, smoking, and proper skin care.
