As much as we love dermal fillers, they aren’t for everyone. If you’d like to look younger but dislike the idea of getting injectables, it’s time to explore our Anti-Aging menu. Using the revitalizing power of your very own body, we can help to restore a younger looking you with little risk of complications or a lengthy downtime. Here’s a closer look at two age-defying alternatives to dermal fillers that may be right for you.
To replenish lost volume in the face, smooth wrinkles, and reclaim your youthful vitality, we carefully inject fat cells from one area of your body to another in a process called fat transfer. Fat transfer gently removes excess fat from one area of your body like the abdomen or thighs and prepares it to be injected into areas needing volume, such as the face. Because you are using your own body, not foreign substances, there’s little risk of adverse side effects or an allergic reaction.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
PRP is a concentrated portion of your very own blood, which we prepare here in our office within minutes during your appointment. PRP is packed with healing properties and growth factors that help to rejuvenate any area of the body. Applied to skin, PRP provides a wide range of complexion improvements, from brighter skin to replenished volume and diminished wrinkles. We can help you formulate the ideal PRP skin treatment to meet your unique needs. PRP and fat transfer make a perfect treatment pairing as the PRP boosts your results and speeds healing. And because PRP is all-natural — from your own body — there’s little risk of any adverse reaction.
