ISOLEGEN Treatment

OVERVIEW
Isolagen was known as “Grow your own facelift”. Isolagen involved re-injecting the body’s own cells into the face. It was said to be your body’s homemade filler. It is now called Laviv. It can be used on the face or body. It promises to be particularly useful in treating stretch marks.

WHAT TO EXPECT
A biopsy is taken from behind the ear. The tissues behind the ear are delicate and readily provide cells known as fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are the engines that produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. These cells, once harvested, are then cultivated for 90 days. Once multiplied they are ready for injection.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Injections are given over 3 sessions spaced out by 5 weeks or so. In each session the cells are injected into the target site, usually the face.

BENEFITS
it promises to create clearer skin with a dramatic reduction in wrinkles.

DOWNSIDES
Isolagen was launched in America in 1995 but was withdrawn in 1999 amid a poor reception and many claims that it was ineffective and a waste of money. It was withdrawn from the UK market but reappeared as Laviv.
