Benefits of Fat Transfer and Injections
Using your own fat to soften signs of aging and enhance your facial features eliminates risks that are associated with some dermal fillers and injectables. Some men and women have allergic reactions to the active ingredients in dermal fillers while others prefer to not use synthetic or foreign substances to look younger. Fat transfer and injections remove these concerns while providing the same benefits of dermal fillers, such as:
- Minimally-invasive procedure
- Little to no downtime
- Immediate, long-lasting and natural results
