The name Stem Cell Facelift can make you think of a lot of different things, however, it’s a great alternative if you’ve ever wanted a facelift but were too afraid to go under the knife and is one of the most popular anti-aging treatments among celebrities now available at Visage Surgical Institute!
The Stem Cell Facelift is a non-surgical facelift in which a mixture of fillers such as Juvederm and plasma from the patient’s own blood is injected into specific areas of the patient’s face to smooth out lines and wrinkles in the face.  Even though the name is a little unusual, you’ll get younger, smoother, brighter looking skin.
How does the Stem Cell Facelift work?
Stem cells can be found in every part of the body, including our skin. The PRP (blood) substance activates the stem cells that lie dormant in the skin on the face through certain growth factors found in the platelets. When activated, those stem cells grow new, younger-looking skin, hence the Stem Cell Facelift! What makes the Stem Cell Facelift even more enticing is since the procedure uses your own blood, your body easily accommodates the filler because it’s made from natural resources.  Also, there is a theory that using your own body tissues will cause your tissue to regenerate collagen.
What type of results can I expect from the Stem Cell Facelift?

  • Younger looking color to your skin due to the new blood vessel formation
  • Your skin will appear smoother and brighter
  • The procedure stimulates new collagen production which over time will “lift” the face to a more youthful, firmer shape.

How long does the procedure take?
The Stem Cell Facelift takes approximately 30 to 40 minutes to perform.  The patients face is numbed with a topical cream to reduce pain from needling.  Dr. Quereshy will then draw blood from the patient and separate the platelets from the blood. The platelets and various fillers are then injected into the areas the patient has requested, such as the cheeks, mouth lines, under the eyes, etc.
*A cosmetic consultation with Dr. Quereshy is required prior to procedure*
What are the side effects?
Because the Stem Cell Facelift is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that involves only injections, recovery time is minimal. Your face may be a little red afterwards, but it will go away in a few hours and some patients experience mild bruising at the injection site.
While the Stem Cell Facelift itself provides prolonged anti-aging benefits, it is crucial to maintain the results of the Stem Cell Facelift post procedure by using the number one prescribed product by Dr. Quereshy, Skin Medica’s TNS Recovery Complex. TNS Recovery Complex, with seven potent antioxidants, peptides and other anti-aging ingredients regenerate your skin. TNS Recovery Complex is great for all skin types to improve fine lines, wrinkles and overall tone and texture.  Using this twice a day for a minimum of 90 days will not only regenerate healthy new collagen and elastin cells at the surface, but will also prolong the results of your Stem Cell Facelift treatment.
