Isolagen

 

The cosmetic effects of the Isolagen process are longer lasting…This remarkable cell therapy process has been proven to be long lasting and effective for the reduction of wrinkles, lines and scars in all areas of the face. Unlike other procedures where injections must be repeated constantly to maintain the benefits, with Isolagen only three repeat treatments are required in most cases as the cells continue to do their work over years rather than months.

 

What does the treatment involve?

  The Isolagen treatment starts with a simple biopsy procedure to take a small 3mm X 7.5 mm elliptical piece of skin tissue from behind the ear. A local anesthetic is given (such as might be administered at the dentist’s) and then the tissue is quickly removed and a single absorbable suture or adhesive dressing is used to close the wound. The skin tissue is then sent to Isolagen where our patented cell expansion process is used to stimulate the cells to reproduce into tens of millions of new fibroblasts. After about 6 weeks, the cells will be sent back to the treating physician’s office where the patient will receive a series of therapeutic injections with a very small needle. Two additional treatments are generally administered, about two weeks apart, which will also utilize cells that have been grown from the culture system initiated by the originally removed tissue. There is no need for further biopsies.

  What is collagen?

  Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that constitutes one of the primary components of the dermis, or second layer of the skin. Collagen forms a network of fibers that gives the skin structure and support. The specialized cells in the skin responsible for forming collagen are called fibroblasts.

  Why do lines and wrinkles occur?

  The main cause of lines and wrinkles occurring is depletion in the number of active fibroblast cells in the dermis. The population of these collagen-forming cells gradually diminishes and the skin ages and lines appear. The Isolagen process injects large numbers of your new and robust fibroblasts back into the dermis, filling out the wrinkles and laying down new collagen as they become integrated within the dermal matrix.
