The versatile regenerative properties of stem cells have made them the subject of extensive scientific study, and cosmetic professionals have now managed to harness those properties to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin like never before. Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center is pleased to offer a state-of-the-art Los Angeles stem cell facial as one of many safe and effective nonsurgical cosmetic interventions.
Skin cells aren’t intended to last forever. The outer layer of skin, known as the epidermis, is the one we can see; it’s exposed to the sun, wind, and environmental debris, and its cells are constantly dying, shedding, and regenerating. In fact, the entire epidermis completely replaces itself about once a month. The deeper layers of facial tissue are not as efficiently regenerated, but they, too, suffer damage as time passes. As these tissues get older, individual cells begin to function less efficiently and lose their youthful, elastic qualities.
Collagen is the material that gives our skin its structure and youthful firmness, but its concentration in our skin decreases as we age. This leads to decreased elasticity, less volume, and the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the facial skin. Components that work to keep skin well-hydrated also began to lose functionality with the passage of time.
What makes stem cells so remarkable is that they have the potential to transform into any type of cell in the body. Once a cell develops into a bone cell, muscle cell, or skin cell, for example, it is impossible for it to revert to its previous state or become a different type of cell. Stem cells are cells that have not yet been assigned a specific task and therefore contain complete DNA, retaining the potential to become any kind of cell.
Another benefit of stem cells is that simply placing a stem cell next to a regular cell has a positive, rejuvenating effect on the nearby cells. Old and new cells, when adjacent, can exchange DNA information, allowing the older cell to essentially “relearn” how to be young and function well from the younger cell.
A stem cell facial takes advantage of the naturally healing and rejuvenating properties of stem cells, using them to revitalize the face. The procedure consists of applying a stem cell serum to the face. This serum is rich in protein, contains hydrating seaweed, and is packed with vitamins to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy and fresh. In addition to revitalizing the cells of your facial tissue, this also stimulates the production of elastin and collagen and has a deeply hydrating effect on dry, tired skin.
Your skincare professional may recommend you refrain from thoroughly cleansing your face for a day after the treatment, to allow the stem cells to remain on the surface of your face while enhancing their healing effects. They may also provide a cream for you to continue using for several days. Most clients notice an immediate difference, and the effects of the stem cell facial continue to increase for up to a week after the treatment.
At Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, we are pleased to offer a wide range of nonsurgical cosmetic interventions that provide results comparable to those of plastic surgery, without the invasiveness, discomfort, extended downtime, and daunting price tag.
