Fibrocell (stem cell application)


Fibrocell, stem cell (autologous fibroblast cell) application is a rejuvenation method obtained from one’s own cells, it reverses the effects of time on the skin. Basically, it is the reproduction of cells called fibroblasts taken from the person by tissue engineering technique and given back to him by multiplying them under appropriate conditions. .

It is an inevitable fact that the skin loses its elasticity and tension over time. Due to this loss, fine lines, wrinkles and sagging appear on the skin. As we age, the number of cells in the dermis layer of our skin decreases. Thus, the quality of elastin and collagen fibers between the support elements of the skin deteriorates and cannot maintain the moisture inside. No matter how much moisture is supplemented from the outside, it cannot regain its youthful shine and vitality.

Fibrocell, which has recently been applied in our country as well as in Europe, is a skin rejuvenation and rejuvenation technique used to bring vitality to the skin at the cellular level. It is performed by multiplying the person’s own tissue cells (autologous cells) and injecting them into the face and décolleté at regular intervals. In this method, a piece of tissue taken from the back of the ear is divided into fibroblasts that keep the skin young in the laboratory environment and multiplied. In this way, the skin is enriched in terms of the number of cells. By obtaining an effect at the cell level, the level of elastin and collagen is increased, the moisture balance is improved. With the Fibrocell method, it is possible to achieve the bright, tight and smooth skin structure of youth.

Usage places

Removal of wrinkles and deep grooves in the face, décolleté area

Shaping the lips

Removal of acne scars

Treatment of long-term skin wounds and scars

shedding hair loss

A separate system has been developed for the application of Fibrocell to reduce hair loss and revitalize weakened hair follicles. In the scalp application, in addition to fibroblasts, collagen, elastin and melanocytes are produced in the serum.


What is fibrocell, is it a stem cell therapy?
Fibroblasts are a type of stem cells. All cells in the body are initially fibroblasts. Later, according to its function, specialized cells such as brain cells and heart cells develop.

What is fibroblast?
Fibroblasts are the main cells of the connective tissue. They are flat, elongated or oval. They are responsible for the production of collagen protein, which is the main substance of connective tissue and has a function in wound healing.

Why does the skin of those who have this application become bright and bright?
With the application of fibrocell, the light reflectance of the skin increases. Aging skin loses fluid and cells as well as collagen. The fluid holding capacity decreases due to cell loss. With the disappearance of the liquid, the bright appearance of the skin disappears and the skin collapses. For example, baby skin has a high water holding capacity. By synthesizing collagen with autologous fibroblast treatment, the skin is restructured and as a result, the skin is sparkling.

Where to use?
With this method, the person’s own living subcutaneous cells (fibroblast) are used as a filler for the removal of wrinkles on the face, shaping of the lips, the treatment of acne scars and even long-term skin scars and scars.

The most applied areas for wrinkle correction are the forehead area, the corner of the eye, the crow’s feet area, the nose lip line, the lip edge.

Fibrocell is also used to treat baldness. The cells surrounding the hair follicle are separated and the cells taken are reproduced in the laboratory environment. It is applied to the bald area to strengthen the hair follicles there.

To whom can it be done?
The application can be made easily to anyone. Especially between the ages of 30-55, since the skin has a high reaction rate, it gives extremely effective results.

Can it be used in people with diabetes?
It can be used easily, it has a therapeutic effect in the healing of diabetic wounds.

How is the application made?
A piece of skin with a diameter of 3 mm and some blood is taken from an area that is not exposed to sunlight and has rich blood supply, such as behind the ear or inside the arm. Cells are produced by sending them to the laboratory under appropriate conditions. The injection of these cells is repeated three times at intervals of 3-4 weeks.

Why is blood drawn?
The serum obtained from the blood draw is used for cell production. The growth factors that pass into the cell from the serum by performing the cell culture with the person’s own blood also contribute positively to the application.

When does the effect start to improve and how long does it last?
The first changes are seen in 6-8 weeks. In the months after the application, an increasing improvement is achieved in the skin. This improvement is long-lasting, with some studies reported to last for 4-5 years.

What is the difference with PRP?
PRP is also a type of stem cell therapy. Substances that activate fibroblasts in PRP and cells directly in Fibrocell are given to the skin.

Since the number of fibroblasts is increased in the laboratory environment, the effect of Fibrocell is more intense and longer lasting.

What are the issues to be considered after the application?
Smoking should be avoided as it has negative effects. Sauna, solarium and sun rays are not recommended for a few days after the application.
