Dr. Simon Ourian comments on how a recent study from the University of Edinburgh could have a significant effect on the field of aesthetic medicine.
Beverly Hills, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/03/2013 -- On February 5, 2013 Scientific American has published a report that the University of Edinburgh has successfully finished a study which led to the production of a live embryonic stem cells-discharging printer. The breakthrough printer releases uniformly-sized cell droplets such that the living cells could be used to mutate into a number of cell types.
A wide variety of possibilities are seen with the new, innovative printing method. In the beauty industry, for instance, the printer can be used for cosmetic procedures that address wrinkles, uneven skin tone, tired, aged skin, and even thinning hair.
“After a series of testing, improvements, and approvals, I hope this new technology might play a huge role in aesthetic medicine,” shares Dr. Simon Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills.
For transplants, drug effects testing, and study purposes, vital organs can be grown by these printer-produced, three-dimensional human cells. With its seemingly endless possibilities, the printer might even be used to print what have been dubbed as the building blocks of life directly into the human body.
Technically, stem cells are referred to as hESCs or human Embryonic Stem Cells. These cells are extracted directly from a human embryo, giving them the ability to grow into almost any form of cell found in individuals—from skin and bone, muscle, to brain tissue.
The potential risks and complications that go with cosmetic procedures could be eliminated by the utilization of stem cells for aesthetic medicine. As a person can use their own blood to extract Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma, the risk of rejection would be completely eradicated. The philosophy behind it is that one’s own tissue would be used to heal, renew, and regenerate the damaged tissue.
“This whole idea of the body’s being able to heal and improve itself might appear more fictional that scientific for many. I am truly excited to learn the results from future studies,” concludes Dr. Ourian.
Dr. Ourian has been a pioneer in laser technology and non-invasive aesthetic procedures including Restylane, Juvéderm, Radiesse and Sculptra. These treatments are used for the correction or reversal of a variety of conditions such as acne, acne scars, skin discoloration, wrinkles, stretch marks, varicose veins, cellulite, and others.
