What is microfat?

Microfat involves the extraction of small amounts of fat through liposuction, processing it to remove impurities, and then precisely injecting the refined fat, known as microfat, into specific areas using fine needles. The term “microfat” refers to the small particle size of the injected fat, making it suitable for delicate regions like the face.

What is nanofat?

Nanofat is a specialized form of fat that undergoes processing to create a liquid or gel-like substance rich in regenerative components like stem cells and growth factors.

What can microfat do?

By utilizing the patient’s own tissue for a more precise outcome, with typically less downtime compared to more extensive surgical approaches, the use of microfat can achieve the following outcomes when injected into certain areas of the body:

  • Enhance the texture and appearance of scars, creating a more natural and harmonious look.
  • Rejuvenate hands by addressing volume loss and promoting a more youthful appearance
  • Its fine particle size enables precise injection, resulting in a subtle and refined outcome that appears natural
  • The regenerative components in microfat, such as stem cells and growth factors, have the potential to enhance skin quality, texture, and tone.

These outcomes with microfat are possible due to the presence of viable cells in the processed fat, including adipocytes (fat cells), stem cells, and growth factors. These elements play a role in tissue regeneration, volumization, and overall improvement in the treated areas, leading to a more natural and youthful appearance. The small size of the injected fat particles further enables uniform distribution and integration into the surrounding tissues.

What can nanofat do?

Nanofat is commonly used in cosmetic procedures such as facial rejuvenation, scar revision, and hand rejuvenation. Its application involves injecting it into specific areas using small needles, which can lead to the following results:

  • The potential to enhance skin quality and diminish signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
  • The regenerative components in nanofat could improve scar texture and facilitate better blending with the surrounding skin.
  • Addresses volume loss in the hands, ultimately improving their overall appearance and imparting a more youthful look.
  • In specific treatments, nanofat is employed to stimulate hair follicles, fostering hair growth.
  • Nanofat’s stem cells and growth factors offer the potential to elevate overall skin quality, encompassing improvements in texture and tone.

The regenerative components found in nanofat, such as stem cells and growth factors, play a role in tissue healing and regeneration. The small particle size enables accurate injection into delicate areas, fostering more nuanced and subtle results. Essentially, nanofat enhances aesthetic outcomes by leveraging the regenerative potential of the patient’s own fat tissue. The particular application depends on individual goals and the specifics of the cosmetic or reconstructive procedure.

What are the differences between microfat and nanofat?

A

1. Particle Size:

  • Microfat: Comprising larger fat particles (0.2 to 0.8 millimeters), it is suitable for addressing moderate volume loss and providing structure, particularly in areas like the face.
  • Nanofat: Characterized by smaller fat particles (less than 0.2 millimeters), it is ideal for delicate applications, such as improving skin texture and addressing fine lines.

2. Processing:

  • Microfat: Processed through mechanical methods or centrifugation, it is a less refined form compared to nanofat.
  • Nanofat: Undergoes additional refinement, often through emulsification or enzymatic processes, concentrating regenerative elements like stem cells and growth factors.
A

3. Applications:

  • Microfat: Commonly used for general volume restoration, facial rejuvenation, scar revision, and addressing moderate volume loss in various body areas.
  • Nanofat: Applied in more delicate procedures, including facial rejuvenation for fine lines, scar revision, and improving skin quality. It may also be considered for hair restoration and certain regenerative medicine applications.

4. Procedure Goals:

  • Microfat: Chosen when the goal is to restore volume and provide structural support in areas with moderate volume loss.
  • Nanofat: Selected for procedures emphasizing the improvement of skin quality, addressing fine lines, and leveraging the regenerative potential of fat.

Both microfat and nanofat utilize the regenerative properties of the patient’s own fat tissue, offering versatility in aesthetic medicine. The selection depends on specific procedure goals, treatment areas, and the desired outcome.
