Adipose stem cells for human skin rejuvenation and regeneration

It has now been proven that injecting fatty tissue is effective at human skin rejuvenation. The discovery, first made by a surgeon specializing in burn treatment, has now been confirmed in vitro by researchers at Grenoble’s INAC and Lyon’s HCL, who injected adipose stem cells into a reconstitution of human skin.
The researchers now plan to conduct a proteomic analysis of the anti-age and regenerative factors secreted by the stem cells. Their work could improve the treatment of serious skin problems such as foot lesions in diabetics and burn scars.
Once the regenerative factors have been identified, the researchers hope to use them to create synthetic factors, making the jump from a stem-cell-based therapy to a drug therapy.
