What is nanofat?
Nanofat is a processed form of our natural body fat which is loaded with healing and regenerative properties.
Regular fat is removed from the body and undergoes a treatment process to reduce the size of the fat cells without losing any of its incredible natural attributes.
Nanofat, an almost liquified version of our body fat, contains stem cells and growth factors as well as elastin and collagen to help restore skin health and appear more youthful.
How does nanofat microneedling work?
The first step in the procedure is to remove fat from a specified area of the body. This will require a site, that has sufficient unwanted fat, undergoing extraction by way of liposuction.
The fat that is removed from this region will then be processed at the clinic (it is liquified and filtered on site) and converted into nanofat. The nanofat is then injected in small amounts directly into the facial skin, this process is also known as fat grafting, fat transfer, or lipotransfer, and encourages the stem cells and growth factors within the fat to stimulate new growth within the dermis.
Once injected by way of microneedling, the nanofat continues to rejuvenate the skin as collagen production is also induced using this procedure - over the next few months the face becomes fuller, less lined and withdrawn, and takes on an overall more youthful, smooth appearance.
Pigmentation spots, scars, dark circles, blemishes, sun spots and wrinkles are all reduced using the nanofat technique as the skin tone and texture takes on an improved, rejuvenated look.
What is microneedling?
A microneedling pen is a device which contains hundreds of tiny needles equipped with tiny microchannels that provide ways for nanofat to be pumped directly into the dermis (layers of the skin).
Is nanofat microneedling safe?
Facial lipotransfer procedures have a very low complication rate and a very high satisfaction rate with our patients in Marbella and Madrid. Facial fat transfer can be performed either as an isolated procedure or in combination with other facial procedures such as eyelid lift, browlift frontal lift, chin augmentation with implants or rhinoplasty.
How do Ocean Clinic assess their nanofat microneedling patients?
Pre-operative considerations include a thorough evaluation of your facial anatomy and bone structure including the possible recommendation of complementary or alternative procedures, e.g. facelift. Our surgeons advice (regarding the combination of techniques), your understanding of the 3 dimensional ageing process and our enthusiasm for the best possible results are paramount in obtaining long-lasting, natural results.
