What is LAVIV?
LAVIV is an autologous cellular product used to improve the appearance of moderate to severe nasolabial folds, or the smile lines. An autologous product is one that is obtained from the same individual – which means that your LAVIV is made specially for you from your own collagen-producing fibroblast skin cells. It is the first and only FDA-approved individualized therapy that helps polish the smile lines.
Who is a candidate for LAVIV?
LAVIV is a treatment recommended for adults, men and women, who desire to improve the appearance of their smile lines, using a biological treatment that is made exclusive for the specific individual. The treatment uses the patient’s own cells, and it is clinically proven to be safe and effective.
The LAVIV Treatment
LAVIV is a 100% personalized therapy. Your LAVIV is made of tens of millions of collagen-producing fibroblast skin cells cultivated from your own skin samples. The cells are placed in a mixture of water, sugars, vitamins, amino acids, and salts. The final product contains at least 98% pure collagen producing skin cells – which means that each LAVIV dose is as exclusive as you are!
To create the personalized LAVIV treatment, your physician will take your skin sample and send it to a Fibrocell Science facility, where it will be reproduced into millions of new collagen-producing fibroblast cells. Those new cells will, then, be frozen, and some will be used immediately, while some will be stored at the facility for future use.
It takes about 3 months to prepare your individualized LAVIV treatment. The procedure is, then, spread over the course of 3 treatment sessions, spaced at 3 to 6 weeks intervals each. At each treatment, LAVIV will be injected directly into the smile lines using a small needle.
The results are amazing, since this state-of-the-art technology improves the appearance of the smile lines biologically, with your own cells, giving a result that is 100% you. Individual results may vary.
Benefits of LAVIV
Using your own body’s collagen-producing fibroblast cells, LAVIV significantly approves the appearance of nasolabial wrinkles. The treatment has a genuine biological effect in reducing the signs of aging. The results are natural, long-lasting, and do not leave the face looking frozen and stiff.
