Creating Your LAVIV™

LAVIV™ is a personalized cell therapy that uses your own fibroblast cells to improve the look of your smile lines. Here’s how the process works:

  • To begin, your physician will take small skin samples from behind your ear with the use of a local anesthetic
  • These skin samples are sent to Fibrocell Science, the makers of LAVIV™
  • Using a state-of-the-art process, Fibrocell Science expands your fibroblasts from your skin sample into millions of new fibroblast cells. These cells then undergo a comprehensive quality control process
  • All of your cells are cryopreserved (frozen) and those that are not immediately used are stored at Fibrocell Science’s FDA-inspected manufacturing facility for future use
  • Following the development and quality control processes, your personalized LAVIV™ therapy will be ready in approximately 3 months

Personalized LAVIV™ Treatment Sessions

Once your LAVIV™ therapy is ready, Fibrocell Science will contact your physician. You and your physician will then schedule 3 injections, 3 to 6 weeks apart.
