The Latest Antiaging Innovation: The Stem Cell Facelift

There isn’t a person out there more anxious than me (and I tend to reiterate this with every occasion, I know), for scientists to discover the so-called ”Fountain of youth” – a (hopefully) non-invasive procedure (the less invasive, the better, of course) that would stop the aging process of the features at about 25 years of age. Thus, I always rejoice when I hear about any new progress in the antiaging industry and I’m always on the look-out for new discoveries in the field.

The new cutting-edge procedure that has recently gained my attention, promising the effects of a facelift without the use of a scalpel? Stem cells injections.

According to Dr. Nathan Newman, dermatologist and owner of his own clinic in Beverly Hills, California, as well as his patients, who claim to be 100% satisfied with the results of the procedure, the stem cell facelift is the most innovative and efficient current alternative to plastic surgery.

In spite of the scary name, this version of a facelift doesn’t involve any scalpels, but a few needle pinches. Going one step further than the already very popular fat injection, Dr. Newman has spent the last decade researching and developing a technique which permits the adding of stem cells to harvested fat that is to be injected back into the body, in order to restore the skin’s natural youthful glow and vitality.

Although the effectiveness of the treatment (which will set you back anywhere from $5000 to $10,000), has yet to be proven scientifically, Dr. Newman’s patients swear by its results. It seems that science is heading in the right direction after all!
