Stem cells, the controversial healthcare topic for the past several years, are now causing a buzz in the skincare world. However, cosmetic labs and skincare specialists are not using embryonic stem cells, the ones that have caused much discussion and debate, but are creating products with specialized peptides and enzymes that, when applied topically on the surface, help stimulate the skin’s storage of stem cells.
Stem cells are the body’s raw materials.
Stem cells are unique — no other cell in the body has the natural ability to generate new cell types.
Stem cells are unspecialized cells that have two defining properties: the ability to differentiate into other cells and the ability to self-regenerate.
Self-regeneration is the ability of stem cells to divide and produce more stem cells
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Recently, scientists have discovered that human adipose (fat) tissue has a higher concentration of adult stem cells than any other tissue in the body. In fact, a given volume of adipose tissue contains 1,000 times more stem cells than the same volume of bone marrow — 500 mL of fat can yield approximately 200 million stem cells.
Stem cells have many unique applications in science and medicine, but this is the first time, protein extract derived from stem cells are used in the field of cosmetic dermatology.
Stem Cell Live is a mixture of refined growth factor proteins that is extracted from human adipose stem cells. This uses proteins or chemical messengers that are extracted from stem cells found in human fat tissue. These messengers, when deposited or absorbed into the skin or scalp if that were the case, would then send a signal to cells in the skin teaching them to regenerate.
