A person’s skin can be one of the truest ways to determine his / her age.
It can also be one of the most deceptive. A 20-year old with deep lines and facial wrinkles could look years beyond their age whereas a 50-year old whose skin is still smooth, firm and relatively wrinkle-free could look much younger than they actually are. It all comes down to the condition of your skin. However, it is not always easy to maintain the youthful, vibrant skin you are seeking, even when you take all the right measures to do so. Genetics, personal disposition and the like can create lines and wrinkles unnecessarily. When this is the case, you may need cosmetic intervention from a qualified San Francisco cosmetic surgeon.
Personalized Improvements for Your Smile
Officially approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), LaViv™ is the first and only treatment of its kind to use collagen-producing cells, referred to as fibroblasts, to improve the look of a person’s smile by reducing lines. The system uses a patient’s own collagen-producing cells to improve the look of his / her smile. The therapy itself is comprised of millions of collagen-producing fibroblasts that have been cultivated from the patient’s very own samples of skin.
LaViv™ contains no less than 98% of a person’s own fibroblasts, which makes each patient’s treatment completely individualized.
A physician at Pacific Plastic Surgery Group will send a sample of your skin to a manufacturing facility that has been FDA approved where it will then be scientifically expanded into tens of millions of new fibroblast cells. Here, all of a patient’s cells will be cryopreserved (frozen); some will be set aside for immediate use and others will be stored at the facility for later use. The cell process will take approximately three months to be ready, at which time you will report for a three-course treatment.
Your personalized LaViv™ will be injected into your smile lines to enhance your smile – a process that will be completed in three intervals spanning anywhere from three to six weeks.
