New Nanofat Stem Cell Transfers 
Now Stem Cells & Healing Factors Can Be Transferred With Minimal if Any Downtime
self lipo abdomen
Small amounts of fat can be used for nanofat injections
Transplanted fat has been used for years to restore youthful facial proportions, enhance features, and correct deformities,  and because fat is full of stem cells and healing factors, it, can make new tissue & improve the quality of the overlying skin.

Until recently, the goal of 
fat transfers  was to transfer intact, living fat cells from one area to another and hope that they'd survive.

Studies have shows that most transferred fat cells die, regardless of how carefully they're transferred, but stem cells and healing factors, which are abundant in fat, are activated by even minor injuries like the injections themselves. Activated stem cells from fat and bone marrow have the potential to become fat cells, muscle cells and bone, which are the same tissues that shrink in the face with aging. 

Since the stem cells and healing substances that produce the results are much smaller cells and molecules than fat cells, we can use much smaller cannulas or needles to harvest it than when we were trying not to rupture the fat cells.  

After a small amount of fat solution, called Nanofat, is obtained through a thin cannula, it's then liquified, filtered, and injected into the treatment area, with a thin needle,  In most cases it truly is a lunchtime procedure.

Studies this last year have shown that a sample of nanofat has even more stem cells and healing factors than fhe same amount of fat obtained with regular liposuction. 

Because nanofat can be injected through a thin needle near the skin's surface, it can be used directly in or below the skin, where a fat transfer would have looked lumpy. Theoretically, nanofat should improve crepey skin or skin that's lost elasticty.

"Nano Neck"

One of the most common concerns that our patients complain about is crepey skin on the neck. It's not just the thin skin on the neck that becomes crepey, it's the paper-thin muscle attached just underneath that contributes. 

To test out the theory that nanofat may improve both the muscle and the skin, I withdrew a little of my own abdominal fat 4 weeks ago, filtered it, & then injected it into my crepey neck. Luckily, because I've been interested in stem cells from fat for the last few years, I'd had the discipline to ignore our CoolSculpting devices who stare at me & beckon.

Results i mprove over a few months after treatment but here are my before & after photos at 4 weeks out.

Summer is coming & you've got plans to spend time at the beach, go out boating with friends, or just put on a pair of shorts.

Reading Your Face: What Can it Tell You About Hormone Balance
From Women's International Pharmacy, Written by Carol Petersen, RPh, CNP 

If you know what to look for, the reflection of your face in a mirror can reveal signs of a hormone imbalance. 

Let's start at the top to see what you might find.

If you are  losing hair at the crown of your head, you might have a thyroid deficiency. Thyroid hormone affects the thickness of the hair shaft and the abundance of hair. Adequate amounts of the sex hormones, such as the estrogens and testosterone, also contribute to hair luster. Another factor to consider is your diet - your hair might need more minerals and proteins. Insufficient intake of these nutrients in your diet, or the inability to assimilate those nutrients, can also contribute to hair problems. Low stomach acid makes it difficult to absorb minerals and protein. Because digestive enzymes are needed to break down protein so it can be absorbed, supplements may be needed.

If you have  thinning eyebrows, ...
