What is Fibroblast Injection?
An anti-aging method, which reverses the effects of time by delivering the Fibroblast cells taken from the patient’s cells to the patient again after passing from specific processes, is called Fibroblast Injection treatment.
With aging, the skin, which wears out and loses its elasticity, wrinkles and prolapses. This is a major problem for both men and women. Tissue engineering techniques are widely used all over the world today to prevent the signs of aging that occur due to the decrease in collagen and elastin production in cells. The fibroblast cell culture is transported to problematic areas to restore the tissue’s former vitality.
For What Purposes Is Fibroblast Injection Performed?
Fibroblast stem cell treatment is applied for various reasons in many fields of medicine. The fields where it is commonly used are as follows:
- To prevent hair loss,
- To treat skin chaps,
- In face renewal applications that can be performed with mesotherapy,
- To remove the scars after diseases such as acne or chickenpox,
- To remove burn scars,
- To remove permanent scars caused by any surgical operation,
- To treat chronic wounds that do not heal,
- To treat the wrinkles on the face,
- To plump the lips.
Why is Fibroblast Injection Preferred?
Fibroblast, which is the main substance of connective tissue, increases the production of collagen proteins, which are effective in healing wounds. Thus, skin damages are corrected and new damages are prevented. Therefore, Fibroblast injection has many positive effects. The main ones can be listed as follows:
- It provides a natural appearance.
- It does not contain any toxic substances.
- It is safe. It does not pose any risks.
- It has no effects that can cause cancer.
- It does not cause any allergic reaction since it is taken from the person himself/herself.
- It increases the elasticity of the skin and prevents its collapse as it increases the cells that produce elastin.
- It is effective only at the injection area. There is no function in other areas.
Fibroblast injection is generally preferred in the process of treating the tissues that occur in individuals at birth or after accidents and for aesthetic correction of wrinkles that appear with aging.
How to Perform Fibroblast Injection?
Before fibroblast cell therapy, a tissue at lentil grain size is taken from behind the own ear, under the arm, or from the groin site of the person. Local anaesthesia is administered to the area where the tissue will be taken. An anaesthetic cream can also be used depending on the doctor’s choice. The tissue taken is transferred in a sterile environment to a fully equipped laboratory under cold chain rules.
After about a month, the tissue reaches the desired cell density and is sent back to the doctor in a sterile way for application with a cold chain again. Reproduced cells are injected into the sites designated for processing. Generally, three sessions are required for the therapy and 20 to 40 million Fibroblast cells are injected into the patient in each session. Thus, an average of 100 million Fibroblast cells is delivered to the patient’s skin at the end of the therapy. Although the results after the treatment vary individually, they are generally seen after the second session. However, effects are seen in some patients immediately after the first session. The effect of the injection lasts for 12 months. Afterward, its effectiveness continues for an average of 5 years.
Fibroblast Injection Frequently Asked Questions
What is the price of Fibroblast injection?
It is against the law in Turkey for the healthcare organisations including private practices to indicate prices online for interventions, treatments or consultations. Please contact us by calling or texting 📱+90 541 334 3484 (WhatsApp available) or ☏ +90 212 257 1515 for the cost of the intervention or any other enquiries related to the intervention.
What are the side effects of Fibroblast injection?
Since the cells are taken from the patient himself/herself are used in Fibroblast application, there are almost no side effects. Only temporary redness, swelling, bruising or itching may appear depending on the sensitivity of the person. These situations disappear within one or two days. Since it is natural, an allergic reaction is not observed.
When is the effect of Fibroblast injection seen?
After the injection, the cells settle down and start producing elastin and collagen. For this reason, it is not possible to see its effect immediately. There will be a noticeable improvement only after the 2nd injection. Especially after 4 to 6 weeks, this improvement becomes more evident.
How long does the effect of Fibroblast injection last for?
The effect of Fibroblast injection lasts for at least 4 to 5 years. If the increased fibroblast cells are sufficient in number and stored under the necessary storage conditions, the procedure can be repeated 4 or 5 years later.
For whom the Fibroblast injection is appropriate?
The 30s and 40s are the ideal ages for fibroblast injection. Because these ages are the periods when the results are most efficient for the application. It can be applied at later ages, but it will take longer for the results to appear. However, if the condition in question is the elimination of disorders due to acne, wound and infection, the age limit is not considered for the therapy and can be applied to any patient.
