Acellular Stem cell stimulation

Recommended Posts

What is this procedure they do here at this clinic in canada ? It mentions stemcells, but it sounds like they just re-inject blood similar to prp. They claim 25-50 percent improvement in pitted acne scars.

a lot of places do quite similar procedures and call it stem cell treatments. it seems quite basic really. they say the best stem cells come from fat, so they draw out some with a needle, clean it and reinject it where the scars are. i wonder if people at home could do the same, withdraw it and simply inject it into the face.

i wonder if it could work for ice pick scars?

From what i have read on stem cells. You need stem cell from similar tissue to regenerate that tissue. Some of these clinics are full of money hungry crackpots.
