Controversial craze or miracle medicine? These are the questions on everyone’s lips when it comes to stem-cell regeneration treatments. The innovative procedures are gathering pace across the globe thanks to the minimally invasive treatments that appear to combat the anti-ageing process.
“How it works is fat is removed from the patient’s body and the stem cells are separated. The healthy cells are injected into the host’s body, which can make your hands and face look younger, instead of having a face-lift, Botox and fillers. In my opinion, this is the best alternative treatment to make yourself look and also, importantly, feel much younger and healthier.”
Dr Victor argues, “There are no risks of negative side effects to your body as you are using all your own stem cells.” The doctor further recommends those who should have the beauty treatments – which take three to five hours to complete and cost between Dhs128,563 to Dhs165,296 – are over 30 years of age. Most commonly, it is women who are aged 40 and above who make use of the treatment.
If you are considering this type of treatment, Grazia recommends thorough research, as the long-term side effects of the therapy are still yet to be discovered.
