If there is one universal skin problem that we all can relate to, it is acne. Scars are something one has to deal with sometime or the other in life. They can take away our confidence and mar our personality. But thanks to technology, today, there are procedures to take care of these problems. People are becoming more aware of innovations in the field and are willing to go in for corrective cosmetic procedures to eliminate any imperfection either congenital or acquired.

The demand for acne and scar removal treatment services in India is on the rise and there are good options available. Lipokraft is one such treatment. It is an advanced treatment that reduces scars and stretchmarks using Adipose Derived Stem Cells. Any injury, burn, wound, pregnancy stretch mark or any other trauma such as surgery can cause a scar.

 

Simple or superficial scars are easy to conceal. But when the scar is large or deep and not concealable, one needs specialised treatment to get rid of it. The treatment helps the skin heal without any scarring. That’s the reason for the popularity of this treatment. It is a holistic procedure with a natural healing process and negligible side effects.

There are two methods for this treatment. In Lipokraft, 20-40 ml adipose tissue or fat is harvested from one's own belly or buttock and then it is taken to the lab. Stem cells are then harvested from those and then it is injected intradermally or subdermally. This results in suppressed scars, enhanced volume, glow and also lifts the skin. The second method is where 10-20 venous blood is taken and platelet rich plasma is sepearted from them and then injected on the site.

 

Both the methods involve one's own cells either blood or fat and it depends on the individual which one will suit them. It is a customised treatment for each individual as their own cells carry the healing material.

The USP of this treatment is that it’s simple and painless and confidence boosting. It takes time; one cannot hope to see results in one sitting. It requires at least three visits to the cosmetic clinic, followed by regular maintenance which keeps the skin rejuvenated for five to six years. Regular maintenance includes sufficient intake of multivitamins, anti-oxidants, supplements, nutritious diet and yoga.

Lipokraft helps restructure new skin, allowing skin lesions to get gradually reduced and be replaced by fresh skin.  At the end of it, you acquire healthy, smooth and glowing skin.
