LaViv differs from dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juevederm because it uses a person's own skin cells to fight wrinkles instead of a botulinum toxin product, making it a more natural anti-aging option.
Southlake, TX (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
Southlake Dermatology, an award-winning provider of medical and cosmetic dermatology services in Southlake, Grapevine and Colleyville, now offers LaViv, the first and only FDA-approved therapy that uses a person's own collagen-producing skin cells to smooth wrinkles and fade acne scars. Dr. Angela Bowers-Plott, a board certified dermatologist and founder of Southlake Dermatology, is one of the first dermatologists in Dallas Fort Worth to be trained and certified to offer LaViv.
“I decided to make the investment in this revolutionary anti-aging treatment because it is clinically proven safe and effective, and personalized for each individual,” explains Dr. Bowers-Plott, noting LaViv can also be used to treat indented scars, lines around the eyes and forehead, as well as the top skin layer of the hands. "LaViv differs from dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juevederm because it uses a person's own skin cells to fight wrinkles instead of a botulinum toxin product, making it a more natural anti-aging option."
Developed by Fibrocell Science, LaViv therapy in Dallas Fort Worth involves taking a sample of skin cells called fibroblasts, which make collagen, from behind the person’s ear. The sample is sent to the company’s laboratory, where the fibroblasts are multiplied in cell culture, a process that takes approximately three months. The cells are then sent back to the doctor for a series of three injections, three to six weeks apart.
"I have seen successful results from patients who have received LaViv therapy to rejuvenate skin, creating new collagen and boosting the scar-healing process and smile lines," says Dr. Bowers-Plott.
LaViv is available exclusively through Fibrocell-trained, board-certified plastic surgeons and dermatologists in Dallas Fort Worth. LaViv Physician Certification is awarded to physicians after the completion of the Autologous Fibroblast Cell Therapy Training Program.
