Question:

With stem cell facelifts, are the injections stem cells alone or stem cells mixed with fat? What part of the body are your stem cells taken from or can you use donor stem cells? How long do the results last to fill in hollower skin? Does it smooth chicken texture skin under eyes any? What is price range to do just under the eyes?

Answer:

Some doctors will enhance the fat with adipose derived stromal vascular fraction and there is some small level of evidence that it makes the fat stay longer but the calling it a stem cell facelift is all a marketing ploy. It will not smooth the skin once the swelling goes down and in most cases the stem cell facelift is really done with platelet enriched plasma and very few stem cells. I do not recommend having it done nor do I find doctors that offer it very honest.
