Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Very Small Embryonic-like Stem Cells for Facial Skin Antiaging
Official Title  ICMJE Autologous Very Small Embryonic-like Stem Cells(VSELs) for Facial Skin Antiaging
Brief Summary The aim of this study is the safety and efficacy of autologous very small embryonic-like stem cells(VSELs) to facial skin antiaging.
Detailed Description VSELs come from the patient's peripheral blood, and will be injected in left preauricular area, followed by skin pathology to compare the improvement of skin aging. Two 0.5 × 1 cm fragments of skin and subcutaneous tissue was removed from bilateral preauricular areas for morphologic analysis by optical and electron microscopy. Histologic analysis of skin biopsy specimens was performed by hematoxylin and eosin, picrosirius red (for visualization of collagen), and orcein (for visualization of elastic fibers) staining.
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 1
Phase 2
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description:
In the experimental group, VSELs will be injected in left preauricular area of every volunteer, followed by skin pathology to compare the improvement of skin aging with the skin of right preauricular area. In the control group, platelet-rich plasma will be injected to the left preauricular area of every volunteer.
Masking: Single (Investigator)
Masking Description:
The volunteers will be randomly arranged to enter the experimental group or the control group.
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE
  • Stem Cell Transplant Complications
  • Skin Inflammation
Intervention  ICMJE Biological: Very small embryonic-like stem cell
We carried out the subdermal application of VSELs with a 1-mL syringe (volume, 0.4 mL) coupled to a 30-gauge needle, in the left preauricular area (1-cm2 area), 2 cm distal from the tragus
Other Name: VSEL
Study Arms  ICMJE
  • Experimental: VSEL Max
    We carried out the subdermal application of VSELs with a 1-mL syringe (90,000 cells in 0.4 mL plate-rich plasma) coupled to a 30-gauge needle, in the left preauricular area (1-cm2 area), 2 cm distal from the tragus
    Intervention: Biological: Very small embryonic-like stem cell
  • Experimental: VSEL Medium
    We carried out the subdermal application of VSELs with a 1-mL syringe (60,000 cells in 0.4 mL plate-rich plasma) coupled to a 30-gauge needle, in the left preauricular area (1-cm2 area), 2 cm distal from the tragus
    Intervention: Biological: Very small embryonic-like stem cell
  • Experimental: VSEL Mini
    We carried out the subdermal application of VSELs with a 1-mL syringe (30,000 cells in 0.4 mL plate-rich plasma) coupled to a 30-gauge needle, in the left preauricular area (1-cm2 area), 2 cm distal from the tragus
    Intervention: Biological: Very small embryonic-like stem cell
  • No Intervention: Control
    Subcutaneous injection of 0.4 mL platelet-rich plasma in the same part of the experimental group
