Stem cells are cells of the body (somatic cells) which can divide and become differentiated. When an organism grows, stem cells specialize and take specific functions. For instance, mature tissues like skin, muscle, blood, bone, liver, nerves, all have different types of cells. Stem cells are cells that can differentiate into other types of cells, and can also divide in self-renewal to produce more of the same type of stem cells. Adult stem cells are frequently used in various medical therapies (e.g., bone marrow transplantation). Stem cells can now be artificially grown and transformed (differentiated) into specialized cell types with characteristics consistent with cells of various tissues such as skin, muscles or nerves. Embryonic cell lines and autologous embryonic stem cells generated through somatic cell nuclear transfer or dedifferentiation have also been proposed as promising candidates for future therapies.
Stem cells originate from two main sources: adult body tissues and embryos. Scientists are also working on ways to develop stem cells from other cells, using genetic reprogramming techniques. In mammals, there are two broad types of stem cells: embryonic stem cells, which are isolated from the inner cell mass of blastocysts in early embryonic development and adult stem cells, which are found in various tissues of fully developed mammals. In adult organisms, stem cells and progenitor cells act as a repair system for the body, replenishing adult tissues. In a developing embryo, stem cells can differentiate into all the specialized cells viz ectoderm, endoderm and mesoderm (see induced pluripotent stem cells) but also maintain the normal turnover of regenerative organs, such as blood, skin or intestinal tissues.
A stem cell is a cell with the unique ability to develop into specialized cell types in the body. In future, they may be used to replace cells and tissues that have been damaged or lost due to disease. A stem cell transplant may help you live longer, young and healthy. Stem Cells Therapy being regenerative medicine is the future in curing different diseases and replacement of different medicine having complication in its administration hence it is replacement of traditional medicine and future of medical science. We DERMESTHETIC at Sialkot & Lahore, Pakistan is the only stem cells center in Pakistan have experienced dermatologists and cosmetologists having expertise and knowledge of Stem Cells treatments and procedures.
Types of Stem Cells
Researchers categorize stem cells, according to their potential to differentiate into other types of cells. Embryonic stem cells are the most potent, as their job is to become every type of cell in the body.
The full classification includes:
- Totipotent stem cells can differentiate into embryonic and extraembryonic cell types. Such cells can construct a complete, viable organism. These cells are produced from the fusion of an egg and sperm cell. Cells produced by the first few divisions of the fertilized egg are also totipotent.
- Pluripotent stem cells are the descendants of totipotent cells and can differentiate into nearly all cells, i.e. cells derived from any of the three germ layers.
- Multipotent stem cells can differentiate into a number of cell types, but only those of a closely related family of cells.
- Oligopotent stem cells can differentiate into only a few cell types, such as lymphoid or myeloid stem cells.
- Unipotent cells can produce only one cell type, their own, but have the property of self-renewal, which distinguishes them from non-stem cells (e.g. progenitor cells, which cannot self-renew).
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)
MSCs come from the connective tissue or stroma that surrounds the body’s organs and other tissues. Scientists have used MSCs to create new body tissues, such as bone, cartilage, and fat cells. They may one day play a role in solving a wide range of health problems.
Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (IPS)
Scientists create these in a lab, using skin cells and other tissue-specific cells. These cells behave in a similar way to embryonic stem cells, so they could be useful for developing a range of therapies. However, more research and development is necessary. To grow stem cells, scientists first extract samples from adult tissue or an embryo. They then place these cells in a controlled culture where they will divide and reproduce but not specialize further. Stem cells that are dividing and reproducing in a controlled culture are called a stem-cell line.
After many conducted experimental projects in the last decades of the 20th century, stem cells (SC) were around twenty years ago announced as an innovative and promising remedy for many different diseases. This hope related with specific properties of stem cells and their expected regenerative potential increases in direct proportion to the significant need in many medical specialties. Stem cells are the building blocks of skin. Lifeline stem cell serums tap into the potency of these stem cells to help renew your skin’s appearance. Scientists at Lifeline Skin Care discovered that human non-embryonic stem cell extracts can help fight the look of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. There are three known accessible sources of autologous adult stem cells in humans: bone marrow, adipose tissue and blood. Stem cells were most often obtained from patient’s fat (71%). Stem cells can also be taken from umbilical cord blood just after birth. Of all stem cell therapy types, autologous harvesting involves the least risk. By definition, autologous cells are obtained from one’s own body, just as one may bank his or her own blood for elective surgical procedures.

Other procedures offered included hand rejuvenation, hair growth, scar therapy, buttock augmentation and vaginal rejuvenation. A dermatologist/cosmetologist at DERMESTHETIC at Sialkot, Lahore & Pakistan can help determine the most appropriate type of treatment for you.
Need/Purpose of Stem Cells
Stem cells can be guided into becoming specific cells that can be used to regenerate and repair diseased or damaged tissues like skin cells in people. People who might benefit from stem cell therapies include those with spinal cord injuries, type A diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, different skin diseases, stroke, burns, cancer and osteoarthritis. Stem cells may have the potential to be grown to become new tissue for use in transplant and regenerative medicine. Researchers continue to advance the knowledge on stem cells and their applications in transplant like skin graft and regenerative medicine.

Stem Cells Therapy for Facial Rejuvenation
A large number of stem cells exist in fat tissue. Stem cell facial rejuvenationtherapy is a non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure that harnesses the science of stem cells to make the body create more collagen and fill in tissues with healthy blood flow, resulting in a glowing, youthful appearance. Typically, the more invasive the technique, the longer the results will last. A full facelift, for example, provides the most dramatic results that can last for up to 15 years post procedure. Less invasive techniques, like mini facelifts or S-lifts, yield more moderate results that typically last from two to six years. Stem cell treatments may lower symptoms of the disease or condition that is being treated. The lowering of symptoms may allow patients to reduce the drug intake of the disease or condition.
Stem Cells therapy is considered as a great breakthrough in skin/facial rejuvenation in world. There are large number of successful cases out there, film stars, actors, spokespersons, businessmen and so many people went through stem cells therapy at DERMESTHETIC with complete sense of satisfaction as they all are getting very effective results. Only a well-qualified skin specialist (Dermatologist) can assess the type of skin disease you may be suffering from and then can guide you about the best possible treatment option and stem cells is one of them. We at DERMESTHETIC at Sialkot & Lahore, Pakistan have experienced dermatologists and cosmetologists having expertise and knowledge of stem cells treatments and procedures.
Stem cell therapy, also known as regenerative medicine, promotes the repair response of diseased, dysfunctional or injured tissue using stem cells or their derivatives. It is the next chapter in organ transplantation and uses cells instead of donor organs, which are limited in supply. Researchers grow stem cells in a lab. These stem cells are manipulated to specialize into specific types of cells, such as skin cells, heart muscle cells, blood cells or nerve cells. The specialized cells can then be implanted into a person. Same is the case with the skin cells as with the growing age the skin cells are also going to aging but with the magical stem cells therapy, charismatic changes may occur in human which look the skin young, healthy and beautiful. Stem Cells Therapy in skin contributed to regenerate the skin in a most natural and safe way to stay you young and may slow or reverse the process of aging.
A stem cell line is a group of cells that all descend from a single original stem cell and are grown in a lab. Cells in a stem cell line keep growing but don’t differentiate into specialized cells. Ideally, they remain free of genetic defects and continue to create more stem cells. The embryos being used in embryonic stem cell research come from eggs that were fertilized at in vitro fertilization clinics but never implanted in a woman’s uterus. The stem cells are donated with informed consent from donors. The stem cells can live and grow in special solutions in test tubes or petri dishes in laboratories. Human embryonic stem cells are extracted from human embryos, several questions and issues have been raised about the ethics of embryonic stem cell research. Although research into adult stem cells is promising, adult stem cells may not be as versatile and durable as are embryonic stem cells. Adult stem cells may not be able to be manipulated to produce all cell types, which limits how adult stem cells can be used to treat diseases. However, researchers have found that adult stem cells are more adaptable than was first thought.
We at DERMESTHETIC Sialkot & Lahore, Pakistan have highly qualified Dermatologists/Cosmetologists who are expert in Stem Cells treatments and procedures pertaining to skin diseases and cosmetic uplifting.
In dermatology and aesthetic surgery, a lot of disorders, currently incurable or with insufficient results after treatment, like psoriasis vulgaris, epidermolysis bullosa, systemic sclerosis, scleroderma, extensive burns, can be potentially the target of stem cell therapy. Stem cells are currently intensively investigated for applications in a number of medical disorders including dermatological ones. Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) seem to be an ideal source for tissue engineering application due to the lack of ethical concerns, high availability and increasing number of methods for isolation and expansion of such cell types. Each year on the market we can see new devices for MSCs expansion and culture, which allows to obtain a large number of cells, suitable for clinical application. Ability to differentiate into many cell types and lack of confirmed tumorigenic properties in comparison to embryonic stem cells or induced pluripotent stem cells, additionally argues for mesenchymal stem cells. Among MSCs, in dermatology the most popular ones include adipose derived stem cells (ADSCs) used alone after expansion in vitro or together with stromal vascular fraction (SVF).
We at DERMESTHETIC at Sialkot & Lahore, Pakistan have experienced dermatologists and cosmetologists performing Stem Cells Therapy and properly advise the patient regarding the treatment after making diagnosis. Patients report skin that appears more youthful and rejuvenated which continues to improve over the first three months after treatment. While Stem Cells Therapy is relatively new to the cosmetic medicine world, its future is promising. Like with any medical treatment, it is important to ensure that your medical practitioner is well-qualified and experienced in the procedure.

Following are the advantages of the Stem Cells (SC) Therapy:
- Simple & non-surgical procedure
- Multiple Injections, procedure lasting approximately 90 minutes
- Safe and reliable results
- Very quick recovery period
- Beautiful and above all extremely natural looking end results.
Stem cell treatments may require immunosuppression because of a requirement for radiation before the transplant to remove the person’s previous cells, or because the patient’s immune system may target the stem cells. One approach to avoid the second possibility is to use stem cells from the same patient who is being treated. Pluripotency in certain stem cells could also make it difficult to obtain a specific cell type. It is also difficult to obtain the exact cell type needed, because not all cells in a population differentiate uniformly. Undifferentiated cells can create tissues other than desired types. One should discuss these potential risks with Dermatologist/Cosmetologist, as well as the steps your doctor will take to minimize these risks. We at DERMESTHETIC, where the dermatologists have such expertise and knowledge.
