AUTOLOGOUS ADIPOSE-DERIVED CELLS:
A Facial Rejuvenation Therapy
Research studies have found that adipose tissue is considered as a source of adipose-derived stem cells. They are easily obtained with little patient discomfort. These autologous adipose-derived cells have opened a window for clinical use in the repair, replacement and regeneration of cells, restoration of impaired function due to disease, trauma and aging.
These autologous adipose-derived cells are unique in such a way that they are extracted from your own fat, hence the name autologous. This procedure starts with the collection of a small amount of fat under local anesthesia by our surgeons, Drs. Maurizio and Roberto Viel. The collected fat is then sent for processing to a laboratory. This processing includes extraction and expansion of the stem cells. Furthermore, this creates your own personal supply of collagen-producing cells and growth factors which help correct the effects of skin aging.
After approximately 12 days, the expanded adipose-derived cells are injected into the superficial dermis with a special microscopic needle. Once the session has finished, it requires approximately 2-3 weeks for the gradual increase of the collagen and elastin to be noticeable, and you will see the changes usually in a month. The continued gradual improvements are seen at about 6 months to a year.
Here in Dubai, this treatment is available in our Dubai Healthcare City clinic. Dr. Maurizio and Dr. Roberto Viel primarily use this autologous adipose-derived cells treatment to improve the appearance of fine lines and skin texture.
