What is Cryo-Lip®?
The Cryo-Lip® service is a unique and high quality technology that allows patients to store their own valuable adipose (fat) tissue or adult stem cells for current or future medical or cosmetic use. After collection the fat tissue is processed at a highly specialized and FDA-accredited tissue bank. The tissue and cells can be preserved for many years and can be released back to the patient for reinjection at their request.
Cryo-Lip® offers a new service for plastic surgeons and regenerative medicine
Plastic Surgeons can use the cryopreserved tissue and cells for cosmetic indications such as facial rejuvenation or breast reconstruction. In addition, many applications in regenerative medicine are being investigated with promising results already announced in conditions such as cardiac ischemia and urinary incontinence. There is little doubt that adult stem cells will play an important part in the clinical medicine of tomorrow.
James D. Lafferty, CEO of Genesis Biosystems, sees a growing market: “Using a patient’s own fat for injection for cosmetic enhancement increased from 2009 to 2010 by over 27%, which indicates patients and physicians continue to see more benefit from natural tissue as opposed to synthetic injectable products. Additionally, with more than 300,000 liposuction procedures performed annually in the U.S., there are large numbers of patients that will choose to cryo-preserve their fat for future cosmetic and medical use as regenerative stem cell therapies become more prevalent.”
Cryo-Save has also completed an ‘FDA-ready’
A powerful partnership
Arnoud van Tulder, CEO of Cryo-Save: “A strong partnership is essential for a successful roll-out of the Cryo-Lip® service in the U.S. and I am convinced that Genesis Biosystems is ideally placed to ensure good market penetration.”
Cryo-Save, the leading international family stem cell bank, already stores more than 185,000 samples from cord blood and umbilical cord tissue for newborns and adipose tissue for adults. These stem cells can mean the difference between life and death in the case of future threats to the health of the donors. There are already several diseases that can be cured by the use of stem cells, and the number of treatments will only increase. The use of stem cells from adipose tissue is increasingly popular in cosmetic surgery. Driven by its international business strategy, Cryo-Save is now represented in over 40 countries on four continents, with ultra-modern processing and storage facilities in the United States, Belgium, Germany, Dubai, India, South Africa, U.S. and France (validation in progress).
