–What are the benefits of stem cells in the face and neck”
Thursday May 14th, 2015
A patient had recently inquired online regarding the potential benefits of stem cell therapy in the face and neck
OUR RESPONSE: Through our IRB (Investigational Review Board) and CSN network, the processing of adult fat produces higher numbers of viable stem cells than traditional techniques. Also, we integrate PRP (platelet rich plasma) utilizing a laboratory quality system. Combined, the stem cells/PRP/fat scaffolding has produced significant and long lasting results(4 years plus) in our patients.
Dr. Lewis Obi in fact is noted for his international lectures and publications including the first major medical book ever dedicated to the use of –Stem Cells in Aesthetic Procedures” – Springer Publications 2014.
Dr. Lewis Obi is also an early clinical pioneer of the non surgical laser neck tightening platforms developed by Palomar in 2008: SlimLipo. The two combined innovations has led to the introduction of Dr. Lewis Obi’s –OPERA Lift” in 2010.
Postscript: During the past two years, numerous expensive –stem cell” topical creams have integrated growth factors derived from human fat. Although promising in terms of results, these cannot compare to the techniques described above.
