Can Stem Cell Regeneration Restore Beauty?

Can Stem Cell Regeneration Restore Beauty?

It's the age-old question: "Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the studliest of them all?"

Vanity is a fact of life. We avoid delicious food, spend hundreds of dollars on skin care products, partake in torturous fitness regimes, and will even surgically alter our bodies to look the way we want.

PRP and stem cell treatments are proven to utilize our own blood and fat to regenerate our bodies from injuries such as meniscal tears. So, is it a stretch for these advanced healing properties to make us really, really ridiculously good looking?

Don't Hate Me Because My Cultured Cells Are Beautiful

Formulators are attempting to encourage skin cells into action with byproducts of the following cultured cells:

  • Cytokines and chemokines, which regulate inflammatory responses
  • Growth factors which stimulate the rapid growth of cells

Research suggests the human stem cell byproducts from skin or adipose tissue are the best candidates for skincare products. They produce cellular components that your body naturally uses to maintain a youthful appearance.

Products employ a blend of growth factors, cytokines, antioxidants and other antiaging ingredients. Transforming growth factor beta-1, epidermal growth factor and basic fibroblast growth factor are some of the cytokines involved. Stem-cell-conditioned mediums capture a varied set of cytokines and deliver the complete set of instructions necessary for rejuvenation.

It appears that the healing properties employed in stem cell regeneration can contribute to gorgeousness!

Getting "Shot" Can Repair Burn Wounds

Many skin care professionals are only using human bioengineered growth factors that decrease with aging and have been studied in wound healing to be effective.

For example; burn victims have been reaping the benefits of a "gun" that sprays stem cells onto their damaged skin. A small patch of healthy skin is removed and the stem cells are separated out, and put into a solution that is sprayed on to the wound, stimulating rapid skin growth.

Case Study: A man had electrical burns covering a third of his body. Doctors harvested 24 million stem cells from a small area, and sprayed them back on to his body. A thin layer of skin had regrown over his arms and chest in four days. All of the areas treated with cell spray grafting were completely healed after just 20 days!

Can Stem Cells Help Me Start My Modelling Career?

Using stem cells for cosmetic purposes like rejuvenating youth and elasticity in skin isn't out of the realm of possibility. If a stem cell gun can repair debilitating burn wounds, it's not a huge leap to suggest that it can repair cracked or dry skin, too. As we mentioned, they're already infusing skin care products with the byproducts of cultured cells, skin, and adipose tissue!

We know pluripotent stem cells can help cure baldness, so don't be surprised if we hear about super models coupling that with revolutionary stem cell skin treatments somewhere down the line!


Maybe you've given up on the dream of a modelling career and don't need to use stem cell treatments for cosmetics. Perhaps you're simply seeking relief for tendonitis, osteoarthritis, or meniscal tears.
