The aging process takes its toll on our skin. The inner layer of skin, the dermis, becomes thinner as your body produces less collagen, which is the support structure of the skin. Additionally, we lose bone and quit producing collagen. This results in the occurrence of wrinkles, loose skin and thinning lips. For years, we have been remeding this with facial fillers/botox and collagen rebuilding treatments and surgery. Fortunately, advancements in medical technology have enabled physicians to treat patients with new technologies yielding results that may be considered more permanent. In the field of skin rejuvenation, LaViv has developed a process in which one’s own skin cells are used for plumping and rejuvenation. This process enables physicians to naturally restore your skin to its original youthfulness.
With La Viv’s Natural Collagen Supplementation, it is now possible to use your own skin cells to activate your own collagen development and naturally treat the dermal defects of the skin, which are the cause of wrinkles, thinning lips, acne scars, and dermal depressions like chicken pox scars. La Viv provides a subtle correction of wrinkles, acne scars, and can be used effectively in treating thin lips.
The benefits of La Viv treatments are long lasting. This enhanced “Protein Repair System” is able to produce your own natural collagen, which provides for a gradual long-term thickening of your dermal layer of skin.
La Viv treatments can be used in conjunction with other treatments such as chemical peels or laser skin rejuvenation. La Viv is the only treatment that substantially thickens the inner most layers of your skin while laser and chemical peels work to exfoliate and remove the outer and middle layers of the skin, which together provide a smoother, supple appearance.
Imagine when you are 50 getting your 30-year-old tissue injected into your wrinkles. This is the result of the LaViv system and medicine of the 21st century.
Scientific studies have shown that younger cells have greater restorative and repair characteristics than cells that have been continually exposed to photo damage and oxidation associated with a normal lifestyle. Your cells, when taken out of La Viv’s Cell Storage System, recultivated and reintroduced into your tissue should have greater repair capabilities than your existing tissues.
HOW DOES THIS SYSTEM WORK?
To initiate the La Viv process, your surgeon will take a small biopsy from the back of your ear and send this to a laboratory. Utilizing cell culture techniques, La Viv will expand your cells, creating an enhanced “Protein Repair System”.
At approximately eight weeks, your “Protein Repair System” will be fully expanded and ready for your surgeon to reintroduce into your skin, initiating a long-term therapeutic correction without the need for ongoing treatments every month.
In consultation with your surgeon or patient coordinator, you will be able to determine how many treatments may be necessary for complete correction. La Viv treatments are available only through surgeons who have demonstrated superior expertise in the field of facial rejuvenation and have had training in the administration of expanding a patient’s “Protein Repair System”.
