What are Nano Fat Injections?

Within any medical field, consistent innovation is vital for delivering exceptional results that meet the diverse needs of patients.  Among the latest advancements in the field of regenerative medicine, nano fat injections stand out as a revolutionary technique offered at Arizona Oculoplastic Specialists for restoring a youthful appearance of facial skin.

Nano fat grafting is a new approach in the overarching realm of fat transfer procedures. Unlike traditional methods, which involve the transfer of larger fat particles, nano fat grafting utilizes minuscule (nano) fat particles which are harvested from the patient’s own excess fat. This concentrated creamy liquid is rich in regenerative stem cells, growth factors, and extracellular matrix components. These tiny particles are ideal for promoting tissue repair and rejuvenation.

How Does the Procedure Work?

Before the procedure, patients will undergo a consultation to discuss their concerns, goals, and candidacy. The process of nano fat grafting cab be performed under local anesthesia. Fatty tissues are harvested from donor sites such as the abdomen or thighs using minimally invasive liposuction techniques. Once fat is harvested, it goes through a processing stage where it is emulsified and filtered so that just the nano-sized fat particles are obtained. The processed fat is then injected or micro-needled back into facial skin.

What Is the Difference Between Nano-Fat and Micro-Fat Grafting?

Micro-fat is the larger fat particles that are mostly injected for volume augmentation. The procedure is often referred to as “fat transfer”.  It provides structure and restores volume similar to commercially available dermal fillers. As we age, we lose our own natural fatty compartments in the different areas of the face resulting in hollowness. The micro fat transfer is typically injected in deep tissue planes. Common areas include; temples, around eyes, cheek, marionette lines, lips, jawline and chin.

Nano-fat is actually the same micro-fat harvested that is further processed by filtration and emulsification steps, breaking up the fat cells and releasing their regenerative molecules such as varies growth factors and stem cells. Nano-fat is injected into the superficial layer of skin. Nano fat transfer can be combined with CO2 laser skin resurfacing or RF micro-needling which enhances the rejuvenating powers of those treatments and significantly helps with healing and recovery. Nano fat injection is often combined with micro fat transfer for optimal volume restoration and skin rejuvenation. 

Who Should Consider Nano Fat Grafting?

Nano fat grafting is ideal for restoring minor volume loss and skin rejuvenation. Therefore, individuals looking to improve skin texture, tone, and elasticity can benefit from this procedure. Ideal candidates should have realistic expectations and be in good overall health. For this reason, Arizona Oculoplastic Specialists requires each patient to undergo a consultation before any procedure to evaluate each patient’s unique needs and determine their suitability for nano fat procedures.
