(Juvederm™, Perlane®/Restylane®, Radiesse®, Sculptra® ,Belotero®, or Voluma)
Soft-tissue fillers, generally injectable forms of collagen or fat can help fill in lines and creases, temporarily making for a rejuvenated, refreshed appearance. When injected beneath the skin, these fillers plump creased and sunken areas of the face. They can additionally add fullness to the lips and cheeks. These injectables can be performed in as little time as a lunch-hour and recovery is minimal.
Fat is a excellent, long term filler that can be used to restore volume. Fat injections are very popular, natural, and very predictable option for facial rejuvenation. Typically we harvest fat from the lower abdomen, inner thigh, or knee area. The fat is prepared and injected, just as a filler. Extra fat is saved as stored in our facility. This fat can be injected at a later date as a touch up. Fat is an excellent source of stem cells. There are actually 500 times more stem cells in fat than there is in bone marrow. These stem cells are responsible for the improvement in skin quality patients notice after this procedure. The result from a fat injection typically lasts for many years.
