Nanofat Injections

We’re offering an innovative treatment to utilise this technology, applying it to the cosmetic industry; treating thin “crepey” skin and acne scars,  as well as rejuvenating the face. 

What Are Nanofat Injections?

Nanofat is a liquidised and filtered fat that we take from a specific area of your body. We remove this in an injection-like way, and then this fat is processed in a closed sterile environment, and the liquid that remains has a high concentration of Stem Cells, which is that part we need!

The Nanofat, containing the Stem Cells is then reinjected into the treatment area. Stem Cells are undifferentiated biological cells which can actually develop into different cell types in the body, different from their original form, during early life and growth. This makes Stem Cells key in the regeneration of damaged tissues.

Research has shown that there have been extraordinary improvements in skin quality after Nanofat Injections (after a 9-month period) and as a result, Nanofat Injections have started to gain a place within the cosmetic industry, particularly in the rejuvenation of skin on the face and hands.

How Does This Treatment Work?

In order to carry out this procedure, we first need to take a fat graft from an area of your body, usually this will be from your stomach or thighs. We will then ‘wash’ this fat with saline, and filter it so that the fat is ready to be injected back into the body, targeting the areas that require rejuvenation. We’ll work with you to establish which areas of your body you have concerns with and use this fantastic method to rectify these.

What Can Nanofat Injections & Stem Cell Transfer Treat?

Some of the common areas that Nanofat Injections can treat are:

  • Face 
  • Hands 
  • Neck 
  • Chest area

However, if you are experiencing areas of particularly thin skin on other areas of your body, the best thing to do is arrange a consultation at one of our clinics in Nottingham or London. That way, the Doctor can advise whether this is the right treatment for you, and then recommend a bespoke Treatment Plan to suit your individual needs.

Benefits Of This Treatment

  • It utilises your own body’s material and cells, so no concerns about foreign bodies entering your body
  • Little-to-no scarring at the site where fat is taken, and no scars from where the injection is done
  • Very little downtime
  • Minimally invasive, meaning that discomfort is also at a minimum
  • Extremely low risk of side effects and complications 

Who Are Nanofat Injections Suitable For?

If you’re suffering from thin, damaged or aged skin then this procedure could be perfect for you. As part of your consultation, we’ll assess your individual suitability for this treatment, such as checking you have enough fat available to make the Nanofat.

What Happens During The Procedure?

Below you’ll find a guide on what you can expect to happen during your Nanofat & Stem Cell Transfer treatment.

  • We’ll perform the procedure under local anaesthetic, which means that you’ll be awake throughout, however you won’t feel any significant discomfort 
  • In order to extract the fat we use a gentle procedure. This can be done from various areas of the body, as long as they have sufficient amounts of fat. Generally, this will be from the stomach or the upper legs, but it can also be taken from the inner knees, the thighs, the buttocks, or from love handles if you have them.
  • After injecting local anaesthesia to the area we are taking the Nanofat from, which minimises bleeding in this particular area, a very small incision is made and fat is aspirated using a blunt needle with multiple perforations and a special aspirator.
  • The small incision is closed with one dissolvable stitch. After we’ve injected the treatment area with local anaesthesia, we’ll make a small incision so that we can remove fat.
  • The next important stage is to filter the fat, we’ll do this by washing it and then filtering it to separate blood, oil and local anaesthetic from the fat cells.
  • Liquification of the fat occurs after passing the fat through a special filter.
  • The Nanofat is then injected into the recipient site with a cannula.
  • The effect of this can usually be seen between 9-12 months after the procedure.

Risks and Side Effects

This procedure is very safe, especially as it does not involve the use of any sharp implements. We will discuss any other risks and potential side effects with you during your consultation.
