Micro & Nano Fat Transfer for Facial Rejuvenation
Aging is a reality for us all and with this comes the signs of aging which appear as lines, wrinkles, skin tone and texture changes and sagging. There have been many advancements in the field of aesthetics which have opened the door to more treatment options that are safe and reliable for those seeking to remedy the signs of aging. Our face aids in expressing emotion, excitement and of course youth. And for this reason, treatment for aging has grown momentum and many seek solutions that have little to no side effects and downtime.
Treatment for deep facial lines, wrinkles, and sagging is not a new concept and there have been many options available for both topical and the internal procedures. One of the most commonly known and used method is the use of bioengineered fillers or Tissue Fillers and has seen success for facial augmentation for many years. Like all other treatment options, Tissue Fillers do carry risks which may arise, the most common risks or side effect is the formation of cysts or nodules, granulomas or asymmetry.
There are other minimally invasive treatment options that address the surface of the skin and are an excellent additional option for the treatment of aging and the effects on the skin. Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion, and Laser treatments are used to target the surface of the skin, however, these treatments cannot aid in the restoration of lost volume under the skin.
Now there is a new procedure available to aid in positive aging and tackle facial aging. Autologous Fat Transfer is now being used to target the factors of facial aging by restoring volume and improve reproduction of collagen and prevent thinning. Fat Transfer is achieved by removing fat from one area of the body and reusing it in another. Micro & Nano Fat Transfer are the names used to describe the amount of fat being used for a specific treatment to a specific area.
Fat Transfer has been proven to be a powerful treatment for volume restoration and improve the signs of aging. There are many reasons for facial aging, as the skin starts too thin and there is an increase of loss of collagen the facial skin starts to lose elasticity. During this process, there are other contributing factors to consider which include muscle pulling, gravity, and the loss or gain or excessive weight.
Recently there have been many who believe that Autologous Fat Transfer is a powerful alternative to Tissues Fillers to improve restoration of volume. Fat Transfer can serve as the ideal filler because it not only provides volume replacements but may offer dermal regeneration of the thinning skin. Studies have shown that fat may play an important role in the treatment of aging, scarring, acne and acne scarred skin because the stem cell rich cells within the adipose tissue may have regenerative potential.
Micro & Nano Fat Transfer is used for specific areas of the aging skin, primarily the nasolabial lines or folds, the sunken or hollowed under eye area as well as the cheeks. Fat Transfers can be used for scarring, ridging or to fill areas on the body that have created a sunken or uneven tone due to trauma to the area. Fat Transfers can be done on the face, hands, breasts, buttocks and any other area of the body where needed.
The Melrose Aesthetic Centre offers Fat Transfer for rejuvenation and restoration. In many cases, the fat can be used following a Liposuction procedure. Contact one of the consultants to discuss which options are available to suit your budget and desired outcome.
