NonSurgical 3D Facelift


RejuveFace™Stem Cell Enhanced 3D Face Rejuvenation

Shu Cosmetic Surgery Institute is the first cosmetic center to offer RejuveFill™ stem cell enhanced natural face lift in Minnesota.  This revolutionary natural enhancement procedure provides the latest technology and technique for patients wishing to restore volume and fullness in their face. Women can now get the long lasting, youthful face they want without the use of implants , filler, and scars, and other complications typically associated with invasive enhancement surgeries.

General Introduction

Stem cells are extraordinary cells that have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body or serve as a sort of internal repair system, dividing (self-renew) essentially without limit to replenish other cells. An adult stem cell is thought to be an undifferentiated cell. The primary roles of adult stem cells in a living organism are to maintain and repair the tissue in which they are found.

Given their unique regenerative abilities, stem cells offer new potentials for treating many diseases such as diabetes, and heart disease. Regenerative medicine is the new type medicine of creating living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to aging, disease, damage, or congenital abnormalities.

Adipose-derived regenerative cells are abundant in fat. Cell compositions isolated from adipose tissue contain a mixture of cells including stem cells and endothelial progenitor cells. Autologous adipose-derived regenerative cells (ADRCs) therapy in the field of regenerative medicine involves harvesting fat, and isolating the ADRCs (stem cells), and injection of cell mixture. Autologous ADRCs therapy have been used to treat a variety of medical conditions and applications,

Adipose-derived regenerative cells (ADRCs) contain several types of stem and regenerative cells, which may help improve fat graft retention through multiple mechanisms. The use of ADRCs in this procedure allows for growth of new blood vessels to feed the fat. The stem cells also release anti-inflammatory substances that help with muscle and tissue healing, as well as growth factors that tighten the skin over the breast. Harvesting ADRCs from the extracted body fat is extremely effective in aiding the body in healing and overcoming disease and tissue damage.

Using gentle Body-jet liposuction or Vaser technology, patented stem cell processing system and LipoCollector™ 3  technology, the patient's own body fat is extracted and harvested with the Adipose Derived Regenerative Cells (ADRC’s) or stem cells to create a concentrated material ideal for face tissue replacement. With improved structural fat grafting techniques using state-of-the-art equipment, women can expect safer, more natural looking face lift results.

Patients are now able to predict their stem cell enhanced 3D face augmentation results. With the addition of extracted stem cells and advancements in fat grafting technique, up to 90 percent of the harvested fat used for face rejuvenation can be retained, eliminating the need for additional treatments. 

RejuveFill™ Stem Cell Enhanced Natural Face Lift is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia. General anesthesia and a hospital stay are not necessary. The entire procedure, which includes liposuction of the unwanted body fat, enrichment of the extracted fat with ADRCs (stem cells), and injection into the face, takes about 3-4  hours. The patient can return home immediately after the procedure is completed. The downtime is about a week with mild to moderate swelling and bruise, but pain is minimal.

First, unwanted body fat from areas like the abdomen, thighs and buttocks is extracted using gentile Body-jet liposuction or Vaser technology. A stem cell processing system extracts ADRCs (stem cells) from a portion of the liposuctioned fat. The regenerative cells and stem cells are washed and concentrated before being combined with a portion of harvested fat cells.  In the meantime, the harvested fat cells are cleaned and concentrated with LipoCollector™ 3  technology before being mixed with the ADRCs (stem cells).  The final cell mixture is injected into the face, where it replaces tissue volume. The supercharged, concentrated fat graft creates the result with a natural looking, longlasting face rejuvenation.

An added advantage of stem cell enhanced augmentation is the removal of unwanted fat from areas like the abdomen, thighs and buttocks, in addition to achieving larger breasts. Using new body-jet liposuction or Vaser technology and newly developed instruments to gently harvest and prepare the fat, the procedure is performed more economically with minimal discomfort, quick recovery and high chance of fat survival.

RejuveFill™ Stem Cell Enhanced Natural Face Lift is ideal for women who may have lost volume in the mid face, forehead, and temporal areas, and deepening of nasolabial folds and Marionette lines due to age.
