Sources of stem cells
Due to the proven efficacy of stem cells for improved skin care, the beauty and dermatology industries are hopping on the bandwagon and using stem cells within their products. Stem cells from plants are now being used in over-the-counter (OTC) health and beauty products. It’s important to note that stem cells from plants and stem cells from humans are drastically different in their construction and efficacy, and that it’s plant stem cells being used OTC.
While human stem cells are complex, versatile cells that serve a number of healing and anti-inflammatory purposes, plant stem cells are simpler and better served for antioxidation purposes. When you look at it that way, plant stem cells aren’t really much different than eating healthy fruits and vegetables.
So while beauty brands are hopping on the aforementioned bandwagon and trying to attract customers under the guise of “stem cells” in their products -- thus making people believe that the stem cells used are human -- that is far from the case. However, while these deceptive products sit on store shelves, human stem cells are being effectively used in valid stem cell therapy treatments. If you’re looking for a way to improve your skin’s texture and elasticity, stem cell therapy might be the right option for you.
Can I get a stem cell facelift?
The beauty industry is filled with exploitation, and that’s no different when it comes to stem cells. As if the deceptive OTC products aren’t bad enough, there has been a term floating around as of late: the “stem cell facelift.” This procedure, offered by some deceptive dermatologists', is not really a facelift at all. Stem cell therapy cannot provide the same results as a surgical manipulation of a patient’s face -- however, it can provide natural, safer, and aesthetically pleasing results.
That’s why, when considering any type of stem cell treatment, it’s important to consult with experts. Trust stem cell specialists to explain what you can realistically expect when undergoing stem cell therapy for improved skin elasticity and aesthetic. While it is an exaggeration to say that stem cell treatments can achieve the same effects as a surgical facelift, the results are promising. If you want a ‘tuneup’ or are having an issue with your skin that stem cell therapy may help, this could be a better route than surgical or chemical options.
Additionally, using stem cells to improve the appearance and tightness of skin isn’t just for people who are “vain.” Stem cell therapy can also play a key role in recovering from surgeries or other procedures where the skin may be compromised. Whether exploring stem cell therapy for aesthetic reasons, therapeutic reasons, or both, it’s important to consider your personal medical history and speak with a healthcare professional who can recommend the best plan of action for your individualized needs.
