Injections of fat is a natural approach to the rejuvenation of the face and other body parts. This unique procedure is safe and effective in its technique, and provides the most natural and long lasting results. Fat grafting is a procedure to remove fat from one part of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. After a thorough cleaning of the fat, it is injected into areas of the body, such as the face, hands, legs, or buttocks. Injections of fat cells can be used to improve the appearance of hollow cheeks, to provide more volume to thin lips, under the eyes, and to remove acne scars and wrinkles on the forehead. After the fat is injected, it generally remains in the new area for many years. Since the fat is a natural component, there is no risk of complications.
Radiesse is a gel made from calcium hydroxyapatite and is used to remove wrinkles and add volume to soft tissues. Calcium hydroxyapatite is a natural component of the bone tissue, characterized by a complete biocompatibility with the human body. Thus, the Radiesse method contains virtually no risk of complications. The drug works in two ways: as an ordinary filler that fills the hollow hypodermic sites by adding the necessary amount to fill the space, and after some time (two to three weeks) it works to stimulate growth of collagen. The effect of the procedure lasts for more than one year.
Juvederm (Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm XC) is a gel injected subcutaneously. This filler is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural component of the skin cells. Typically, there are no negative side effects with a treatment of Juvederm, and its effects last up to one year. Juvederm XC contains a different composition of the material, providing you with greater comfort during the procedure.
Botox injections (Botox) has long built a reputation as one of the most effective methods for smoothing facial wrinkles. Despite increased competition by other methods, Botox remains popular as a #1 choice. Botox, or botulinum toxin, works as a blocker of neuromuscular transmission. Wrinkles cease to form and, as a consequence, are gradually smoothened.
Sculptra is a filler composed of polylactic acid. The procedure helps to remove wrinkles from the face, correcting deep wrinkles and scars, and is also used to remedy sunken cheeks, bags under the eyes, aging hands, and wrinkles, sagging skin, and visible veins in the abdomen, thighs. Three sessions are typically enough to achieve results, which can last from a few months to two years. Sculptra is injected under local anesthesia and does not cause any discomfort. The whole procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes. Sculptra is composed of a synthetic poly-L-lactic acid, which is biocompatible and biodegradable. This means that it is completely absorbed after being introduced into the body. The drug is injected deep enough under the skin in the lower layer of the dermis, is, therefore, able to correct even the deepest wrinkles.
