(PRWEB) November 09, 2011
World-renowned board certified dermatologist Dr. Jaliman is now performing a new innovative procedure that uses the patient’s own skin cells to improve the appearance of smile lines. Made exclusively for the patient from their own cells, LAVIV ™ is the first and only FDA-approved personalized cell therapy of its kind. Currently only available through board certified dermatologists and plastic surgeons who have completed an approved training program, Dr. Jaliman is one of a few physicians offering the treatment in New York.
The new procedure is adapted from a similar technique that Dr. Jaliman perfected earlier in her career. “Patients were thrilled with the results, over 5 years later they still have the collagen,” says Dr. Jaliman. “Because it’s cultivated from their own cells, the results last a long time and look incredible.”
LAVIV ™ is made from the patient’s own skin cells, which are placed in a mixture of water, sugars, vitamins, amino acids and salts. Skin samples are taken from the back of the patient’s neck and sent to a lab. At the lab, fibroblasts from the patient’s own cells are grown over a 6-12 week period, then sent back to be injected directly into the patient’s smile lines with a small needle.
