As we age, our skin naturally begins to lose its youthful features. Elasticity is lost, moisture is harder to retain, and skin can end up looking dry, wrinkled, thin, and papery. For years, doctors and other cosmetic medical professionals focused on rejuvenating skin on the face – nowadays, we have techniques to rejuvenate the skin of your hands, as well.
The Stem Cell Lift
Cosmetic medical procedures are still medical procedures, and as such, the number one rule is “Do No Harm”. Many cosmetic procedures involve surgery, which carries a number of risks. General anesthetic can be quite hard on the body, and more complications tend to arise when patients are older. What’s more, there are the obvious risks inherent in cutting into a person.
The Stem Cell Lift was originally designed as a safe, effective alternative to much riskier surgical facelifts. The process seems simple, but it’s incredibly novel – stem cells are taken from your own body in order to rejuvenate a particular area.
Stem cells are very special – they can turn into a wide variety of other kinds of cells. When stem cells taken from your body are injected into your face or hands, they turn into healthy soft tissue that fills in grooves that have been formed from the loss of healthy tissue. This, in turn, stops skin from having a saggy appearance, and reduces hollowing and thinning.
How Safe is the Stem Cell Lift for Hands?
The Stem Cell Lift was designed to be safe and effective – so how safe is it?
Because the stem cells are cells from your own body, they won’t be rejected. This is a huge benefit; stem cells harvested from other places can lead to complications.
We’ve also eliminated the need for general anesthetic with our procedure. Instead, you’ll only need localized anesthetic in your hands.
No anaesthetic and no cutting means far fewer risks than some traditional cosmetic procedures.
After the Procedure
The recovery time for the Stem Cell Lift for Hands is incredibly short; most people are able to resume most of their daily activities the day after the procedure. You may notice some swelling and bruising in the area for a week or two.
One of the most incredible things about the Stem Cell Lift is how long-lasting the results are; you might see lasting results for a decade. Unlike traditional cosmetic procedures, the Stem Cell Lift is using some of the most powerful cells in your body, so the body won’t eliminate the cells – that means your hands will continue to look and feel great for years to come.
