From amazing face rejuvenation to stunning success with chronic debilitating diseases, adult stem cells promise to revolutionize modern medicine. What’s even more incredible is that they are available to everyone right now and the magic is already inside us.

Stem Cell Revolution

Stem cells are the basic building blocks of all human tissue.  They have the ability to repair, rebuild, and rejuvenate any tissue in the body. When a disease or injury strikes, these stem cells respond to specific signals and set about to facilitate healing by differentiating into specialized cells required for the body’s repair. 

What’s absolutely “FAT-ASTIC” is that there are literally billions of adult stem cells found in our own fat.  We no longer have to deal with taboo “embryonic” issues or painful bone marrow transplants. With as little as 30cc of fat (which would fill a tube the size of a small cigar) over a billion adult stem cells can be put to work to repair, renew and rejuvenate immediately.
