How can I look younger without cosmetic surgery?

Skin regeneration and rejuvenation techniques based on cutting-edge cell research techniques are allowing people to halt or even reverse the effects of ageing skin by restoring the cells that keep it young and healthy, providing an alternative to cosmetic surgery or chemical-based treatments such as Botox.

Your skin is made up of three layers: the epidermis, the thin outer layer; the dermis, below that, made up of cells called fibroblasts; and the inner layer, the hypodermis.

Dermal fibroblasts have the role of making new collagen and elastin fibres, the materials that keep your skin healthy and youthful.

Is it possible to repair hernia with stem cells?

Medical technologies based on adult stem cells are offering a new treatment method for spinal hernias (also known as slipped discs), one of the most common causes of chronic lower back pain.

Spinal hernias occur most often in the lumbar region, the lower back, though they can happen at any point. The human spine is made up of bones (the vertebrae) and pieces of soft tissue in between them, known as discs. The discs include a tough, fibrous outer layer, and soft tissue inside. In a spinal hernia, the interior bulges and may break through the outer layer. If a herniated disc presses on a nerve, it can cause continuous back pain, possibly severe; numbness in the legs; or sciatica – pain in the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down the back of the legs.
