Aging is a complex process that our bodies experience as we grow older. It can be divided into two main categories: intrinsic and extrinsic. Extrinsic aging is mediated by environmental factors such as chemical exposure; particularly, ultraviolet-B (UVB) exposure. Fine and coarse wrinkling, roughness and dryness are the main characteristics of extrinsic aging.
The field of skin rejuvenation is field centered for restoration and enhancement of the skin. Thereby, the application of new technologies centered on the repair and replacement of diseased and defect cells and tissues holds the front stage in this field.
Stem cells have been widely used as a promising therapeutic option for their abilities to repair and regenerate different types of tissues and organs for the treatment of tissue defects, malformations, and diseases. As stem cells reduce photo aging dermal cells & stimulate collagen synthesis for skin wrinkles reduction
Stem cells have been demonstrated a vital therapeutic & biological role as seed cells in the reduction and prevention of photoaging dermal cells alongside the antiaging abilities of TGF-B.
