Stem Cell Therapy is #1 Anti Aging Techniques
Among many tools that medical sciences have discovered and developed to fight aging process and its effects, stem cell therapy ranked at the 1st place. While the fountain of youth is just a Myth, stem-cell therapy is the scientific application of its concept. New stem cells and ancillary treatments potentially slow down or reverse the aging process to preserve both youth and beauty.

Aging definition, How do we age
Although everyone is familiar with aging, defining it is not so straightforward. For most human beings, ageing is simply the process of becoming older, growing old, year by year till we die. From a more scientific perspective, the aging process is defined as the progressive accumulation of changes with time that is associated with or responsible for the ever-increasing susceptibility to disease and death which accompanies advancing age. These time-related changes are attributed to the aging process.
We are programmed to die
Another Aging Theory at the cellular level says that the aging process is originating in individual cells, either at the level of the genetic information or through changes in metabolism. As we grow old new cell are continuously formed and dead cells are dying. But every cell has limited number of division. When it exceeds it, becomes no longer able to divide, and if it divides, defective cells are produced. This leads to aging of organs and later the efficiency of body decrease so much that we die.
Now, let’s watch 2 minutes simple video illustrates why do we age, from a biological perspective?
Top 5 Anti Aging Techniques
As medical science and technology are advancing, lifespan average of human beings extends gradually. Although no one so far has lived longer than 122 years which are very rare cases, scientists say that people can expect to live until their 125th birthday, within just two generations. On the other hand, living longer comes with a cost, cost of aging that affects all of the body’s organs, tissues, cells. The signs of aging generally start at 40, earlier for smokers that are exposed to the action of toxic substances. Skin becomes wrinkled, rougher, slack, more transparent, and more fragile. Muscles begin to shrink and lose mass, the water content of tendons gets decreased. Hair becomes thinner, hair fall rate increases while hair growth becomes slower. So, what is the key to reduce aging effects, to preserve health and body as long as possible? We bring out to you the top 5 anti-aging techniques that help you live longer, healthier, and younger…
1- Stem Cell Treatment
During the aging process, the number of stem cells decreases. stem-cell therapy is based on removing your own stem cells, activating them and giving your cells back to you. With Stem Cells treatments you are replenishing the supply of stem cells to allow the body to repair and rejuvenate organs including your skin. This will finally and gradually lead to younger appearance, reduced age spots, fewer wrinkles, reduced neck and back pain, reduced fatigue and tiredness, improved energy, emotional and mental improvement, reduced stiffness of joints, reduction of the effects of degenerative diseases.
Now, let’s watch 2 minutes in this video illustrates how stem cell therapy works?
Cosmeceutical is the marriage between cosmetics and pharmaceuticals which produces a cosmetic product with therapeutic features. The term ‘cosmeceutical,’ is mostly applied to anti-wrinkle and anti-aging creams. In recent years, a plethora of beauty lotions, creams, serums, beverages, and supplements have dawned the marketplace in an effort to make consumers look and feel younger. Mainly by improving collagen production and decreasing fine lines and wrinkles, as one of the most obvious and popular aging effects. Through cosmeceuticals, your skin can begin to look and feel like it did five, ten, or even fifteen years ago – moist, smooth, protected, and with reduced appearance of wrinkles. Yet, this sort of anti-aging techniques is capable to improve the outside look only apart from inside organs.
3- Cosmetic Surgery
Cosmetic surgery involves:
- Breast Enhancement: Augmentation, Lift, Reduction
- Facial Contouring: Rhinoplasty, Chin, or Cheek Enhancement
- Facial Rejuvenation: Facelift, Eyelid Lift, Neck Lift, Brow Lift
- Body Contouring: Tummy Tuck, Liposuction, Gynecomastia Treatment
- Skin Rejuvenation: Laser Resurfacing, Botox, Filler Treatments
Now, we’ll tackle some of the cosmetic surgery procedures in more detail…
Microdermabrasion instantly refines skin texture by physically removing flaky dry skin, bumps from trapped oil, and minimal sun-damage spots, and generally smooth out the skin. As for women over 50, this procedure is a great way to refine skin texture and soften lines. Botox is most often used to eliminate lines and wrinkles between the eyes, across the forehead, and around the eyes. Botox injections contain purified toxins which block muscle contractions under the skin, temporarily reducing or even erasing frown lines and wrinkles. Cosmetic Fillers restore the lost volume of natural collagen by filling in the shallow areas via injection. As we age, our natural collagen production tapers off, resulting in lost volume in the face. Laser Resurfacing with a laser micro peel or fractionated laser can make the skin smoother, more even toned, and tighter. Fractionated lasers obtain great results with less downtime and they have really improved the treatment of loose, rough, wrinkled skin.
We Are What We Eat
This quote turned to be true. The 21st Century is ushering in a new era of nutritional science, demonstrating that nutrition has a critical effect on health, body, and skin which can endeavor control the aging process and turn back the clock – at least a little bit.
A research titled
Discovering the link between nutrition and skin aging
provides an overview of the current literature “linking” nutrition with skin aging. This research is based on the fact that vitamins, carotenoids, tocopherols, flavonoids and a variety of plant extracts have been reported to possess potent antioxidant properties and have been widely used in the skin care industry either as topically applied agents or oral supplements in an attempt to prolong youthful skin appearance. To access the full article: Click Here An example of nutrition role in anti-aging is Collagen & Elastin Production. As the aging decrease in the production of collagen and elastin which are the two fundamental proteins that keep skin smooth and firm. The result is an uneven, wrinkled, deflated and saggy appearance. Yet, you can increase collagen and elastin by feeding your skin from the inside-out with the nutrients necessary for their production. The two C’s, vitamin C and copper, along with high-quality protein, are essential to building collagen and elastin to get back that smoothness, spring and bounce characteristic of younger-looking skin.
Turning back the clock isn’t just about wrinkles and fine lines. It’s about staying fit — not just looking it! New scientific findings confirmed that regular physical activity can reduce the inflammation in the body that comes with aging, which could also help decrease your risk of developing related diseases and conditions—like heart disease, depression, decreased mental function, and loss of muscle mass. Although researchers and physicians haven’t determined specific sort of sport or exercises, they listed up 4 general rules for sports activities that endeavor anti-aging:
- Meet the physical activity guidelines—each week by breaking it into 20- to 30-minute sessions each day. Activities that count include running, walking, cycling, gardening, and housework
- Avoid extreme exercise—anything more than 70% of your maximum effort for more than 30 minutes counts
- Try interval training—for a short, but potent, but shorter, workout
- Build up gradually—As you strengthen your body, what felt difficult last month will suddenly be a walk (or run) in the park
