Fat Grafting vs. Cosmetic Injectables

As you age, you may experience loss of facial volume, which can cause you to look older than you feel. Fortunately, there are a few options on the market that you can use to restore volume to your face. Two popular treatments available are fat grafting and cosmetic injectables. Read our infographic below to learn about the differences between the two cosmetic procedures.

Wisdom and Beauty: Facial Fat Transfer in New Haven County, CT

They say with age comes wisdom—but why does wisdom always seem to come at the expense of beauty?

At Aria DermSpa, we say it doesn’t have to.

As you get older, it’s natural for your face to begin to look “hollow”, especially under the eyes and in the cheeks. Typically, this hollowness gives way to deep wrinkles and unwanted facial folds—symptoms of the aging process that can be frustrating to say the least.

To combat these effects of aging, Aria DermSpa performs facial fat transfer procedures from the comfort of our office in Madison, Connecticut. The process involves refreshing your facial contours by collecting a small amount of fat from one part of the body and injecting it into the desired facial location. It replenishes your “hollow” areas and dramatically reduces the appearance of wrinkles and folds using only your own natural body fat. There’s no need for outside chemicals or substances for you to achieve a taut and voluminous look!

Results from facial fat transfer procedures are known to last much longer than dermal filler treatments (although dermal fillers are another viable short-term option), and patients are usually completely healed after about a week. A series of treatments are recommended for best results.

Come see us today, we pride ourselves on helping women of the greater New Haven area rejuvenate their appearance and regain confidence in their everyday lives. Call us at 203.421.6674 to learn more about facial fat transfer, or to schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists.

Natural, Effortless Beauty Facial Fat Transfers in New Haven County, CT

Maybe we’re inspired by the plush green grass and trees, but lately we’re crazy about all things “green,” particularly recycling! A few weeks ago, we blogged about PRP treatments, which “recycle” platelet-rich plasma from your blood to rejuvenate skin and hair. In keeping with this theme, we’re thinking about another fabulous form of cosmetic “recycling”—facial fat transfer!

One of our surgical specialties, facial fat transfer uses unwanted fat from one area of the body to enhance the contours of the face. One of the things we love most about this treatment is its ability to improve two areas of the body at once, trimming unwanted fat from the belly, for example, while restoring lost volume to the cheeks. Another major benefit of fat transfer is that it uses your own body instead of synthetic substances, eliminating any chance for an adverse allergic reaction. Fat transfer also affords longer-lasting benefits than dermal fillers.

With over 15 years of experience in cosmetic dermatology and more than 7,000 successful fat transfer procedures under our belt, we achieve beautiful results with fat transfers, a gentle and natural way to bring out your best.

How Celebrities Get Their Glow Cutting-Edge Anti-Aging Treatments in Madison, CT

Would you bleed for better skin? Believe it or not, those were the words on Allure magazine’s cover earlier this year! They were referring to PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, one of the most innovative and exciting anti-aging treatments to enter the medical spa arena in recent years. We proudly offer PRP treatments at Aria DermSpa for both skin and hair revitalization.

Thanks to Kim Kardashian, PRP is rather famous (or infamous, depending on your perspective!). You might remember her shocking selfie featuring a closeup of her smiling face covered in PRP. While her picture was startling, PRP has been a trusted and well-established treatment among dentists for decades to help speed healing and decrease infections for dental implants. Injured athletes have also long benefited from PRP’s healing power.

At Aria DermSpa, we love PRP for rejuvenating both the skin and hair. It sounds complicated, but PRP is a fairly simple and straightforward treatment that takes less than an hour of your time. Once your blood is drawn, we isolate PRP from your blood using a centrifuge. PRP can then be applied to the skin either topically or through injection, stimulating collagen growth, restoring volume, and rejuvenating the face for radiant, younger-looking skin. We can also inject PRP into the scalp to help stimulate new hair growth for patients with thinning hair. One of the best things about PRP is that it’s entirely natural, so there’s no harsh side effects or downtime.

Ready to harness your body’s own healing power for age-defying radiance this summer? Call us today at 203.421.6674 or click here to schedule your complimentary consultation.

Look Full and Voluminous with Facial Fat Transfer in Madison, CT at Aria DermSpa

As we get older, we will do almost anything to try and preserve a youthful appearance to show off at work or at home. Unfortunately, one of the first places to show signs of aging is on the face, where lines, wrinkles, and lost volume can create a hollow and aged look instead of the bright, full appearance you are used to seeing. Dermal fillers can provide intermediate solutions to this anti-aging need, but there is a more long-lasting treatment option available at Aria DermSpa in Madison, CT—Facial Fat Transfers!

Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Lisa Donofrio is an expert in fat-grafting procedures, having performed more than 7,000 treatments in her career. Dr. Donofrio provides the best results and experience in the New Haven area, restoring lost facial volume for a fuller, more youthful facial appearance that turns back the clock.

During a Facial Fat Transfer, unwanted fat from another area of the body, like the abdomen or thighs, is removed via liposuction. This fat is then injected into the cheeks, jawline, mouth, or eyes for desired volume and fullness. With Facial Fat Transfers in Madison, patients get two benefits during one treatment by reducing excess fat and repurposing it for long-lasting results.

The American Society of Plastic Surgery reported a large increase in the number of fat grafting procedures to the face in 2015, as more and more patients have turned to this rejuvenating treatment to satisfy their anti-aging needs. Trust expert cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Lisa Donofrio and the rest of the Aria DermSpa team with your Facial Fat Transfer needs and see your results this summer!
