Adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) and their secretory factors can stimulate collagen synthesis and migration of fibroblasts during the wound healing process. Conventional treatments for skin aging, such as lasers and topical regimens, induce new collagen synthesis via activation of dermal fibroblasts or growth factors. Considering the results of our previous study, ADSCs can also be used for the treatment of skin aging.
ADSCs and their secretory factors show promise for application in cosmetic dermatology, especially in the treatment of skin aging.
