When we look at anti-aging for the face we need to look at the skin, it’s texture, sun spots, wrinkles and loss of soft tissue. If there is mark redundancy of the skin, then some type of lift is in order. One of the nuances in face lifting procedures today is the addition of fat grafting with stem cells and PRP or protein rich plasma. I recently read a study by a well known Plastic Surgeon in Italy by the name of Dr. Gino Rigotti.

He studied 6 consecutive patients and placed them in 2 groups. One group received injections of fat and stromal vascular fraction while the second group received expanded mesenchymal stem cells to set which subset would effect anti-aging. The results showed BOTH categories showed increased regeneration of their skin that is an increase in collagen and a decrease in elastin fibers (elastosis or loose skin).
