Using Excess Fat Cells to Fill In Facial Wrinkles
People often find it hard to accept the changes their bodies undergo as they grow older, especially facial wrinkles. Wrinkles and fine lines can make a person look much older than their actual age and can make a person appear constantly tired. For a long time, people treated wrinkles with creams and other topical anti-aging treatments, but they never worked.
Over the last decade, cosmetic researchers have identified many viable ways to combat the signs of aging. One of these ways is through fat transfer. Although there are several successful facial wrinkle treatment options, this procedure has been the most effective minimally invasive option.
How Are Facial Wrinkles Formed?
Before we delve into details on how to treat wrinkles, let’s first find out what causes them. As people reach their thirties, they notice significant changes to their appearance. No one is exempt from the effects of age. It starts as fine lines around the eyes and mouth and soon progresses to deep creases and wrinkles. As the years go on, you’ll notice other signs such as hollow areas, discoloration, and dull skin.
It’s established that the primary cause of wrinkles is age, but that is not the only culprit – environmental factors also play a major role. People who spend most of their time outdoors are more prone to wrinkles and will develop them much faster than their peers. This is because the ultraviolet rays in sunlight can deteriorate your skin’s health. Habits such as smoking also cause a degradation in skin quality, making it more susceptible to developing wrinkles. Another cause is genetics.
While people who exercise and maintain healthy diets appear much younger, they will also eventually develop wrinkles and fine lines.
Fat Transfer Can Shave Years Off Your Appearance
One of the most effective ways of combating wrinkles and other signs of aging is by rejuvenating your skin. This can be achieved through fat transfer. It is an ideal option for people who are looking for a less invasive treatment than the facelift.
Autologous fat transfer, or microlipoinjection, involves facial fat sculpting to restore a youthful appearance. This technique harvests fat from the patient’s own body. This fat is then treated and reinjected into areas of their face to rejuvenate sunken cheeks, erase wrinkles, and plump up lips.
Fat cells are extracted from areas of excess fat such as the thighs, buttocks, or abdomen. Since it is removed from the patient’s own body, there is no chance of rejection or side effects. Once the fat is reinjected into targeted areas in the patient’s face, the doctor will carefully massage the area to created the desired result.
The results of this procedure are almost immediately apparent. The fat sits comfortably under the patient’s skin, smoothing out facial wrinkles and fine lines. This gives them a more youthful appearance with plumper and softer skin. The results of fat transfer are long-lasting and very satisfying.
