Time can take a toll on the appearance of our skin. Fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and even scars can appear. A loss of volume in the face is usually the underlying cause. There are many ways to try to tackle this issue, but one of the newest and most exciting is Nanofat therapy. It uses your own fat in a strategic way to add volume to other areas, such as the face and neck, and minimize the appearance of skin imperfections.
What Is Nanofat Therapy?
The name of this therapy refers to the tiny particles of fat that are used in it. A tiny portion of fat is removed and then injected elsewhere, usually the face or the neck. The fat is first emulsified, allowing it to work well in areas that are very contoured. Some examples of areas it can be injected include the tear troughs, dark circles around the eyes, temples, and fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
How Does Nanofat Therapy Work?
Popular areas to have the fat withdrawn include the buttocks, flank, knee, or stomach. The next step is to spin the fat in a centrifuge in order to separate the other fluids out of the fat. This purified fat is then ready for injection in the delicate areas in the face and neck you are wanting to rejuvenate.
What Are the Benefits of Nanofat Therapy?
There are many reasons to consider this therapy to refresh the appearance of your face. Some of the highlights include:
- It is very safe and there is no chance of an allergic reaction
- It can be done in-office as an outpatient procedure
- It is an economic and effective alternative to dermal fillers
- Your results can last longer because Nanofat therapy stimulates collagen production
- Your results are very natural in appearance
