The aim of this study is to compare clinical outcomes of patients with large scars or Cutis laxa treated with injections of autologous stromal vascular fraction cells (SVF) and adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADSC).
Patients suffering from cutis laxa senilis and scars (atrophic, hypertrophic, developed due to surgery, trauma, diseases such as acne vulgaris, post-burn scars) will be treated with product containing - human autologous stromal vascular fraction (SVF) cells and human autologous adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADSC)
