About Rejuvenation Medicine
Originally developed to speed healing and decrease pain as a medical procedure, stem cell treatments are now available to enhance your appearance and cosmetic procedures. Seasoned cosmetic surgeon Dr. Edward M. Zimmerman is pleased to offer rejuvenation medicine through stem cell therapy. This process is achieved by extracting fat cells, separating the stem cells and reinjecting the cells back into the body. A stem cell treatment can be added to a liquid facelift, a laser skin treatment, a Brazilian butt lift, breast augmentation, liposuction, and more. If you're interested in learning about rejuvenation medicine via stem cell therapy, schedule an appointment at Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas in Las Vegas, NV today.
"I recently visited for fillers on my cheekbone and jawline (Radiesse Plus), as well as some wrinkle relaxer (Xeomin). The process took a little longer than I had expected but the injector was well versed in her practice and very gentle with me. I am very happy with the results. There was a little bruising which is normal with deeper fillers, but from day 1 it was a great improvement. Never thought that just a couple syringes (ok ok like 4 Radiesse, 1 Xeomin) could make such a difference in how I see myself and how others do as well. Highly recommend."- M.J. / Google / Jun 22, 2019

You may be a good candidate for rejuvenation medicine (stem cell treatment) if you are getting a cosmetic procedure (like laser skin resurfacing) or a cosmetic surgery (like liposuction, breast surgery, facelift, or Brazilian butt lift). A stem cell treatment can also be performed on its own as an intravenous procedure to decrease pain and speed healing. During your consultation, Dr. Zimmerman will talk to you about how stem cells can help you.
In one of our comfortable treatment rooms, local anesthesia will be applied to the area where the fat will be taken. Once you are ready, Dr. Z will take a small amount of fat (about two tablespoons), which will be filtered and processed to separate the stem cells. Then, the stem cells can be given to you through an IV or injected directly into the needed area. Depending on whether the stem cells are being used independently or with another cosmetic procedure, Dr. Z will go over post-treatment care instructions. This will include activity restrictions and ways to keep yourself comfortable.
What to Expect
After your treatment, you can expect to experience mild soreness or redness at the extraction site and injection site, but these symptoms are temporary and should subside within a few days. Dr. Z recommends using a cold compress to help ease any swelling and discomfort. You should also refrain from strenuous activity for at least 24 hours, but talk to Dr. Z about when you can resume your usual workout routine.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does rejuvenation medicine cost?
The cost of your treatment will depend on the reason for your visit and the specific location of where the fat is being extracted and where the stem cells will be injected. After your initial consult and once your treatment plan is developed, Dr. Z will be able to estimate your costs.
What are stem cells?
Stem cells are unspecialized cells that have the potential to develop into many different types of cells to maintain optimal health and/or tissue repair. Stem cells can stimulate changes, behavior, or the function of local cells through cell-to-cell communication. This is why stem cells are often used for rejuvenation therapy.
What is stem cell therapy?
Stem cell therapy is the process of separating stem cells from fat tissue and injecting them into areas of the body that need rejuvenation or healing. Liposuction is used to remove the fat and once the stem cells are isolated, they are placed in a sterile syringe and reintroduced into the body.
Is rejuvenation medicine safe?
Yes. The healing powers of rejuvenation medicine via stem cells have been used for many years. Commonly used in orthopedics to speed healing and decrease chronic pain, stem cell treatments are currently being used to improve other issues, like autoimmune diseases (multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease), heart conditions, and macular degeneration. These medical applications have inspired the use of stem cells in cosmetic treatments by skilled cosmetic surgeons, like Dr. Z.
