“You don't need to be confused because these 4 are basically different treatments. Even the way of application and preparation is different from each other.

First of all, it is worth mentioning that your own fat is rich in stem and regenerative cells, so to put it simply, the fat transfer treatments contains stem cells.

Fat is a Stem Cell Rich Adipose

fatWe can separate the stem cells from the fat, even the stem cell itself, this time it is within the scope of regenerative cells.

Regenerative medicine refers to the process of repairing, regrowing and replacing tissues in the body. In addition, we can obtain stem cells not only from the body's fat, but also from bone marrow and skin tissue.

In cosmetic treatments, we benefit from both platelet-rich plasma and stem cell-rich fat transfer to ensure tissue restoration.

Our goal is to reverse the tissue changes that often occur with aging, strengthen hair, add volume to different body parts and even aid recovery after both surgical and non-surgical procedures.

PRP

prpPlatelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a method that uses concentrated growth factors from your own blood to improve the quality of soft tissue on your face, grow hair or benefit results and recovery times after procedures, and it is the simplest of all options.

The use of PRP after surgery has the benefits of laser resurfacing and other similar procedures, but it also has a powerful effect to drive restoration on undamaged tissues, such as hair regrowth and strength.

Fat Transfer

fat transferNow let's go a few steps ahead of PRP. Our oil contains many adipocyte-derived stem cells and we can apply these stem cells to different body parts by fat transfer.

With liposuction, fat is removed, and even a rich concentration of stem cells can be prepared. We can use fat transfer on the face, crooked legs, breasts, buttocks, in short, any area where we want to give volume to the body.

Since it is your own tissue, there is no allergic reaction, it is a safe procedure if done professionally.

Stem Cell Treatments

stem cellNow let's move on to stem cell treatments. When we examine stem cell treatments in terms of aesthetic treatments, we encounter stem cells obtained from fat, marrow or tissue.

However, as in the others, there are stages such as propagating the stem cell in a laboratory environment, passage and making it ready after a period of 3 weeks, rather than immediate treatment.

The treatment that I applied as fibroblast and named as Beauty Insurance expresses exactly this.

In addition, with the recently developed modern kits, stem cell-rich mixtures (SVF; stromal vascular fraction) can be obtained from adipose tissue within minutes.

If You Noticed, They are All Different

estetikPRP, fat transfer and stem cell procedures are not the same if you have noticed. There are very basic mechanisms to exploit their potential, but with more sophisticated approaches, deeper insights, and refined applications and protocols, we can achieve more optimal results.

Aesthetically, these 4 different treatment options can be used for your body or any anxiety you experience in your body.

Your doctor can decide which of these issues is suitable for you and will direct you to the right treatment.
