LIPO FILLERSNeed to remove facial scars and wrinkles? Brighten up your looks at Cosmetrix
If you want to rid your face of acne scarring or wrinkles for more youthful, unblemished skin, you may want to consider lipo fillers, also known as facial fat injections. This popular non-surgical procedure fills scars and creases, removes wrinkles and improves the fullness of your face through the injection of human fat taken from your own body to give your face a smoother, more vibrant appearance.
Lipo fillers are suitable for adult women and men with visible signs of facial aging or scars from acne, or who require deep tissue injection. Lipo fillers help delay the need for more invasive procedures, such as a facelift or brow lift, and eliminate the risk of allergic reactions, unlike synthetic fillers. To have this procedure, you must be in good health.
In preparing for lipo fillers, you may be asked to:
- Get lab testing or a medical evaluation
- Discuss any medical conditions or treatments
- Examine or measure you face
This procedure takes less than one hour and no hospital stay is generally required. Lipo fillers represent a more extensive procedure than other cosmetic injectable fillers because liposuction techniques are involved to collect the fat first, generally using local anesthetic. The fat is then injected at multiple selected points using a small needle, usually with topical or local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort.
Since the filler procedure is non-surgical, very little recovery time is needed for the facial areas targeted. However, the liposuction techniques applied to harvest the fat used for the injections may result in minor side effects, such as swelling, bruising and some discomfort, which should only last a few days or weeks. Your doctor will advise you on the best way to minimize discomfort during the healing process.
Lipo fillers are non-allergenic and very safe. Side effects are extremely rare, though they may include some bruising, swelling or numbness around the liposuction and injection site(s). The risk of other, more severe complications is minimal and rare, but increases if you have poor circulation, diabetes, heart, lung, or liver disease.
It will take a bit of time to fully see and appreciate the full results of lipo filling, as treated areas generally have some swelling some of the injected fat takes a few months to be metabolized, leaving the true outcome of the procedure visible only after three to four months. However, this natural filler procedure has long-lasting effects, so you can enjoy the ongoing benefits of your new, smoother appearance.
