Stem cell facial: Efficacy in preventing skin aging

To have remarkable healthy skin, a growing number of people are using stem cell facial skin care regardless of age and skin type. It enables the facial skin to regenerate itself naturally and safely creating a smoother, beautiful and young looking skin.

What is the composition of facial skin?

The skin is the largest organ in the human body and it protects us from microorganisms such as fungi and bacteria, it assists in controlling body temperature and allows the responsiveness to touch, heat, cold and external conditions.

The skin is made up of three layers:

  1. The epidermis; this is the outermost layer of the skin and it offers a waterproof barricade and it creates the skin tone.
  2. The dermis; found beneath the epidermis, the dermis has tough connective tissues, sweat glands, and hair follicles.
  3. Hyper-dermis; this is deeper subcutaneous tissue that is made of fat and connective tissue. Some key factors that produce facial skin aging
    Facial skin is at the mercy of multiple factors as people age; lifestyle choices, smoking (smoking produces free radicals that destroy cells which later leads to premature wrinkles), nutrition, and exposure to the sun and natural elements, all contribute to premature skin aging. But we can take steps to assist the skin in staying young and healthy throughout life.

Here’s a list of common key factors that contribute in getting wrinkles and spotted skin:

  • Normal aging
  • Photo-aging (exposure to direct sunlight); the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light destroys elastin fibres in the skin. The damage of elastin fibre makes the skin sag, stretch, gets bruised more
    easily and heals slowly
  • Pollution
  • Loss of subcutaneous support • Stress
  • Obesity sleeping position
  • Daily facial movement

As people age, the following changes will come naturally:

  • The skin becomes rougher
  • Skin grows lesions like benign tumours
  • Skin loses the elastic tissue causing the skin to hang loosely
  • Due to thinner blood vessel walls, the skin becomes more fragile
  • Loss of fat below the skin in different parts of the face can lead to loose skin, sunken eyes

How stem cells are applied in anti-aging therapy
The new frontier in regenerative medicine and skin aging treatments is stem cell therapy. Stem cells are currently being used to treat several medical conditions, diseases and severe health disorders. Regenerative medicine is used to reverse aging; several studies over the years report that anti-aging stem cell treatments help in slowing and reversing the facial skin’s aging process.

Also medically known as Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs), stem cells are the basis of all regenerative elements in the human body; whenever a body system or organ requires repair or rejuvenation, stem cells are instrumental.
MSC’s produce the type of skin cells the face needs to repair facial skin cells damaged, replacing them with fresh skin cells.

How stem cell facial skin care works
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) it is purifies and concentrates. Then the cells are administered into the desired area. This high concentration of cells makes an effective anti- aging serum that battles wrinkles, lines, and discoloration that becomes more evident as you grow older.

Stem cell facial is done in a few hours and patients can resume daily activities after a day or two. Unlike other chemical skin anti-aging treatment options, it is more natural and it has a shorter recovery time. It is also suitable for all skin types and tones.

As the stem cells injected into the facial skin begin to reproduce patients will notice:

  • Positive difference in energy levels
  • Reduced fatigue, enhancement in muscular strength and reduction • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles on face and décolletage
  • Rejuvenated aged and sun-impaired skin
  • Reduced hyper-pigmentation marks
  • Removal of marks and scars left by acne, rosacea, and chicken pox

Stem Cells Anti-Aging (R+ Therapy)

Aging is a rather complicated process in which the cells eventually die after becoming progressively damaged over time. However, this process can be reversed or at least impeded by fresh stem cells. These cells have a special anti-aging effect by repairing and regenerating the different organs which have been damaged by stress and various toxic substances which we come across in our day-to-day lives. With stem cell anti-aging we can help repopulate the body with younger cells.They also help to improve our immune functions significantly. When an individual is approaching the age of 40, he/she may begin to encounter some physical problems associated with mature age that can be treated with anti-ageing stem cell treatments.

The outcome can be much more effective in cases where the revitalization process commences earlier in life.

Key indicators of aging
While the indications of aging usually begin at around the age of 40, this may vary depending on lifestyle choices. For example, smokers are going to experience it much earlier because of their exposure to toxic elements. Here ́s some indications of aging: Poor concentration, loss of memory, tiredness, loss of energy, general fatigue, mood swings, loss of hair, wrinkles, age spots, reduced sex drive, insomnia, general aches and pains, loss of skin texture as well as degenerative diseases.

What are anti-aging stem cells?
Stem cells are the supplier of healthy “replacement cells” which you are born with. They are assigned by your body to replace the damaged cells or those which are either old or in the process of dying. With the advent of time, when you start losing healthy cells, the system ́s recovery process becomes harder and longer. Eventually, your body loses its ability to heal properly due to age, life illnesses and traumas.It is at this point that some chronic problems may start. During the stem cell therapy, you are going to be examined by our specialists regarding your present condition and they will also review your medical background comprehensively along with other information in order to get the best outcome.

Results of stem cells anti-aging therapy

Overall improvements: You can expect improvements after stem cell therapy, including:

  1. Physical improvements such as:
    • Less head/neck aches
    • Decreased soreness in neck, arms and legs • Reduced stiffness in joints
    • Far less tiredness or fatigue
  2.  Aesthetic improvements such as:
    • The skin on the face and hands becomes tighter • Fewer wrinkles
    • Looking younger – general younger appearance
    • Change in color of hair from grey to black/normal • Hair thickens
  3. Mental and Emotional improvements.
  4. Improvements in Energy Levels.
  5. Improvement in the Overall Quality of Life.
  6. Reduction of the effects of the degenerative ailments 7. Improved vitality and libido.

Anti-Aging Stem Cells Therapy
During a typical stem cell anti-aging treatment, 100 to 200 million umbilical cord-derived donor mesenchymal stem cells are given to the patient by IV infusions and local tissue injections. This young optimized pool of stem cells works in a number of ways:

  • Repopulating of ageing stem cells pools
  • Regeneration of degraded tissue
  • Modulation of immune system
  • Anti-inflammatory mechanisms
  • Cell-to-Cell stimulatory effects

Consequently, your body becomes renewed and rejuvenated following the active cell replenishment.

Diabetes Stem Cells

What is diabetes?
Diabetes is a medical condition that occurs when the body is unable to regulate the sugar concentration in the blood; the concentration is regulated by insulin which is triggered by b- cells when there is an increase in blood glucose.

When patients suffer from diabetes, their b-cells are dysfunctional or are just not producing enough insulin. Diabetes is the number six leading cause of death in the US alone. It is linked to several medical conditions and increases the risk for diseases like heart disease, kidney disease, amputations, blindness and more.

Types of diabetes

  1. Type 1 Diabetes is the result of a person’s immune system fighting and destroying the b- cells, it usually begins in the early stages of life and accounts for 10% of the total cases of diabetes. People with this type have to take insulin shots daily in order to survive.
  2. Type 2 Diabetes results from b-cell performance decline and an increase in insulin resistance; this type is linked with genetic factors and obesity, hence this type can be prevented by living a healthy lifestyle.
  3. There is another type of diabetes that affects pregnant women, it is called Gestational Diabetes where the hormones released by the placenta to sustain the pregnancy, make the pregnant woman’s cells more resistant to insulin. Once the pancreas is unable to overcome the resistance, the patient develops diabetes.

What causes diabetes?
It is not known exactly why the body immune system fights the b-cells and it causes Type 1 diabetes. It’s assumed that this could have been caused by genetic vulnerability and certain environmental factors but there is no absolute clear reason why this happens.
Type 2 diabetes occurs when the cells resist insulin action and the insulin produced is not enough to overcome this resistance, the reason behind this resistance is also unknown but it is strongly assumed that obesity is directly linked to this type of diabetes.

Risk factors for diabetes Type 1
There are certain factors that may increase the risk of diabetes:

  1. Family history
    If you have a close family member who has Type 1 diabetes, then your risk of getting Type 1 diabetes is higher.
  2. Environmental factors
    Situations like being exposed to a viral disease cause a certain impact on Type 1 diabetes occurrence.
  3. Presence of auto-antibodies
    If you have auto-antibodies, then your risk of getting Type 1 diabetes increases, but this does not necessarily mean that anyone with these auto-antibodies actually gets to develop diabetes.
  4. Diet and Nutrition
    Factors like low vitamin intake, early exposure to cereals and dairy products before the age of 4 months is suspected (but yet to be proven) to increase risks.
  5. Weight
    Your cells become more resistant to insulin as the amount of fatty tissue increases.
  6. Inactivity
    The more inactive you are, the higher the risk of Type 2 diabetes; being active uses up some of the glucose, reduces your weight and hence cells become more sensitive to insulin.
  7. Age
    The older you are, the higher the risk of Type 1 diabetes.

Gestational diabetes risks
A woman who develops gestational diabetes has a higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. The risk factors for gestational diabetes include:

  1. Age
    Older women are more likely to get gestational diabetes.
  2. Family/personal history
    If you have a family member with diabetes, you are more likely to get gestational diabetes and if you have had gestational diabetes in your previous pregnancy, gave birth to a large baby or had a stillbirth, you are at higher risk.
  3. Weight
    Being obese prior to the pregnancy increases your risk.

Symptoms of diabetes
The symptoms vary depending on sugar concentration; sometimes people with Type 2 diabetes may initially have no symptoms while those with Type 1 diabetes experience symptoms more quickly and more severely.

Some of the typical signs and symptoms of diabetes include:

  • Patient urinates frequently
  • Patient gets really hungry
  • Patient gets thirst too quickly
  • Losing a lot of weight
  • The urine has ketones
  • Patient gets tired really fast
  • Patient is very irritable
  • Patient cannot see clearly
  • Sores heal slowly
  • Patient gets too many infections e.g. vaginal infections

Diagnosis of diabetes
The diagnosis of diabetes involves testing the concentration of sugar in the blood which can be done by using a variety of tests like the glycated hemoglobin test, random blood test, fasting blood sugar test, and oral glucose tolerance test. Urine can also be tested for the presence of ketones to check if the patient has auto-antibodies.

Diabetes Stem Cells

Over the years, there have been attempts to cure diabetes by using methods like replacing b-cells through transplants, by increasing b-cell replication, by reducing the death of b-cells and by deriving new b-cells from other cells.
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are self-renewing multipotent cells that have the capacity to secrete multiple biologic factors that can restore and repair injured tissues.

It is known that MSCs play a crucial role in healing damaged tissues. They can differentiate to replace the dead cells as well as secrete stimulant factors to activate surrounding cells in the microenvironment, enhancing the tissue repair process. Therefore, MSCs can be applied to treat tissues impaired by chronic hyperglycemia. MSC transplantation can increase beta cell mass via the following effects:

  1. beta cell replacement through cellular differentiation;
  2. local microenvironment modification by production of cytokines, chemokine and factors to stimulate endogenous regeneration;
  3. reduction or prevention of autoimmunity to beta cells. Immunomodulatory and inflammatory effects of MSCs also contribute to the reduction of insulin resistance.

Results achieved with stem cell therapy

  • Significant decrease in fasting blood sugars and the level of Hemoglobin A1C
  • Significant decrease in Triglyceride levels
  • Measurable improvement in kidney function with a decrease in creatinine levels

Additional benefits include:

  1. An improved capacity for physical activities
  2. An increased feeling of vitality with improved energy levels
  3. A reduced risk of complications
  4. Loss of neuropathy (numbness)
  5. Loss of pruritus (itchy skin)
  6. Loss of Nocturia (having to wake up from sleep to urinate) 7. An increased libido
