Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 29, 2013
According to an article titled "Stem Cells, The Future is Here" in the January 2013 issue of New You magazine, dedicated physicians and scientists are making steady progress in the use of stem cells to combat the signs of aging. Some harvest stem cells from sheep and cows, others are obtaining stem cells directly from their patients during a minimally invasive liposuction.
Dr. Simon Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Medical Corporation in Beverly Hills sees great potential in the use of stem cells for cosmetic purposes. “With more research," he says, "I expect we’ll uncover a plethora of uses for stem cells in preserving the appearance of youth.”
Anti-aging treatments are already among the most popular elective procedures performed around the globe and billions of dollars are spent every year on cosmetics and topical creams. While admitting that the science is still not conclusive, some physicians have reported excellent results with fat injections, the idea being that fat contains the human body’s largest reservoir of adult stem cells and growth factors.
“I’m a proponent of evidence-based medicine,” says Dr. Ourian, "and I’ll wait to see what truly works before I offer it to my patients. I do believe, however, that stem cells will be at the forefront of our treatments in the near future. The possibilities are endless.”
Other scientists are extracting stem cells from plants and animals for use in creams and cosmeceuticals. It’s important to note that the majority of creams on the market contain growth factors and not live stem cells because the technology to keep stem cells viable in that state does not yet exist.
Stem cells may prove to be a major feature in the development of beauty treatments and it appears we are only at the beginning of this revolution.
Epione offers a number of cutting edge aesthetic treatments. Please see their website for more information about these treatments and the use of stem cells in anti-aging treatments.
