Skin Cell Injection Therapy

Rejuvenate your skin
Skin Rejuvenation Therapy

Regain your skin’s ability to create the tone and elasticity of youth by augmenting your skin cells. Recommended for persons seeking natural aging care which doesn’t involve injecting foreign substances.

NEW Improved skin rejuvenation therapy

Since first offering this treatment, Saisei Mirai Clinics have striven to reduce patient pain. Now, Saisei Mirai Clinics have made the following three improvements to reduce patient pain even further.

1. The use of extremely fine needles – 35 gauge, the smallest in the world.
2. The avoidance of foreign substances used in other clinics such as Artz.
3. The use of specialized CoolSense cooling devices to cool the skin during injections, making the procedure virtually painless.

What is skin cell injection therapy?

Skin cells and aging

Living skin cells (dermal fibroblasts) are found in the skin’s dermis layer, under the outer epidermis, and produce the collagen,hyaluronan, elastin, and other substances which maintain skin elasticity.

These fibroblasts decline in number due to aging, UV rays, and stress.

In other words, the loss of cells which produce collagen and other substances results in an increase in such signs of aging as wrinkles, sagging, and under-eye rings.

Skin cell injection therapy involves collecting a tiny amount of your skin, extracting the fibroblasts therein and multiplying them at a cell cultivation center, then injecting these cells back into problem areas.

Because skin cell injection therapy uses only your own cells, there are no side effects and no danger of rejection or failure.

Unlike cosmetic surgery, skin cell injection therapy does not cause dramatic changes.

Skin cell injection therapy is recommended for persons who wish to maintain their current youthful appearance and for those who would like to mitigate signs of aging not present a few years ago.

In addition, unlike the injection of hyaluronan and collagen, the effects of which disappear after several months to a year, the cells injected via skin cell injection therapy do not disappear and continue working to keep your skin looking youthful.

Note, however, that the cells used are a part of you and age together with you.
Saisei Mirai Clinics recommend storing some of your skin cells from today for use in skin cell injection therapy every few years to maintain a youthful appearance.
