Stem Cell Therapy

What is a Natural Alternative to Surgery?

Does the thought of having surgery fill you with anxiety? It’s okay to be anxious, because surgery of any type carries some risks, and the downtime is usually long. But thanks to treatment innovations, there are now less invasive options available. So what is a natural alternative to surgery?

What is a natural alternative to surgery?
In recent years, there have been advancement sin the use of stem cell therapy as an alternative to surgery. The stem cells used for this purpose are usually taken from the patient’s own body, or from a donor. They are typically found in tissues such as the bone marrow, and blood vessels.

Stems cells are versatile because during the early, embryonic stage they have the ability to develop into any type of cell in the body, which means they can replace other cells that are not functioning as they should. Stem cells can therefore become another type of cell, and also repair damaged tissue in other organs. As a result of these benefits, stem cell therapy has become a natural alternative to surgery.

Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy is an outpatient procedure with few risks and minimal downtime. The cells are harvested from one part of the body and then processed, before being injected into the tissue that has been damaged or is deteriorating. Stem cells help the tissues repair and regrow.

Stem cell therapy can be used to treat conditions such as osteoarthritis, back pain, and severe joint pain.

What Can I expect during a facelift procedure?

If you’re thinking about having a facelift done, it’s a good idea to find out what you can expect during a facelift procedure. Take the time to prepare a list of questions to ask your plastic surgeon, so that you’re fully prepared when you decide to undergo the procedure.

Facelift Surgery
A facelift is a surgical aesthetic procedure that is done to rejuvenate the face. It tightens and tones sagging skin, and reduces wrinkles and fine lines. A mini-facelift or a full facelift may be done, depending on the concerns that need to be addressed. Facelift surgery may be performed on its own or in combination with other procedures such as a browlift, or eyelid lift.

What to expect during a facelift procedure
A facelift is done under general anesthesia and can take 2-5 hours, depending on the extent of the work that needs to be doneand the surgical method used.

During a facelift you can expect the surgeon to make incisions that start in the region of the hairline, and extend down behind the ears. This incision gives the surgeon access to the face and neck so that he/she can manipulate the deep SMAS muscle layer below the skin. After the SMAS layer is adjusted, the skin is redraped and put back into position, and fat deposits are also realigned (click to learn more).

If you are considering facelift surgery, be sure to consult with a trained and experienced board certified plastic surgeon, in order to get the best possible results.

Double Chin

How Can I reduce the appearance of my double chin?

Do you have a double chin that you’d like to be gone? If you do and you’ve been wondering – How can I reduce the appearance of my double chin – you’ll be interested in finding out about the latest non-surgical treatement for fat below the chin.

How Can I reduce the appearance of my double chin?
There are a variety of factors that can contribute to a double chin; these include genetics, weight gain, and aging. Unfortunately, diet and exercise have very little effect on submental fat (fat below the chin). That’s why liposuction has been the treatment of choice for a double chin for many years, but there are now effective non-surgical solutions like SculpSure.

SculpSure for double chin reduction
SculpSure is a non-invasive fat reduction laser treatment that destroys fat cells for good. It is FDA cleared for use on various parts of the body including the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, and the submental area.

The heat from the laser disrupts the fatty deposits below the surface of the skin, and the fat cells that have been destroyed are naturally eliminated by the body.

A single SculpSure treatment session takes about 25 minutes, and during that time SculpSurereducesfat in the treated area by about 24%.Since SculpSure is a totally non-surgical treatment there is no downtime.

It usually requires 2 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart to achieve maximum results with SculpSure.
