That is a pretty common combination at the Innovi Stem Cell Therapy Clinic, where doctors extract stem cells from the body's fat to do any number of cosmetic cleanups, from scar removal to diminishing fine lines and wrinkles."But we are not a beauty clinic," said one of the doctors, who asked not to be identified due to Lebanon's strict medical advertising laws.These cosmetic procedures complement their work in stem cells, a far less understood and rapidly evolving area of medicine. Cosmetic treatments and stem cells go well together as doctors have been using fat-derived cells, also called adipose stem cells, as a Botox-like filler for almost a decade.Innovi, however, has the technology to determine a stem cell count.For example, Innovi has treated a 21-year-old woman with 500 million stem cells in a single 150 mL vial.Innovi's bank allows patients to store their cells for up to 20 years or longer if desired, the doctors explained.
