Aging is a natural part of life, but getting—and looking—older can be quite frustrating to experience. If you are worried about facial folds, wrinkles, and lines, there is a variety of cosmetic facial filler options available to you.
A relatively new process called fat grafting, or autologous fat transplantation, can re-contour your face without any worry of allergic reactions caused by foreign substances entering your body. During the fat grafting procedure, fat is removed or liposuctioned from one part of your body and injected into other areas to improve the appearance of your face, chin, and cheeks. Many people prefer this to other dermal fillers because it is a natural procedure. Depending on where the fat graft is placed, it can last for as long as a few years.

Your skin is the largest organ of your body, and it’s important to treat it well so you can look and feel your best. If you want your skin to look smoother, younger, and more radiant, a chemical peel at our Scottsdale med spa could be the answer for you. Chemical peels offer a minimally invasive way of improving the look of your skin, using a special chemical solution to remove dull and damaged outer layers of skin cells. Here are a few tips for preparing your skin for a chemical peel so you get the best results possible:
Schedule a Consultation
Every person’s skin is different, which is why it’s important to meet with our skin care specialist, Caren before you have a chemical peel performed. Chemical peels use specific ingredients for specific skin issues such as dark spots, wrinkles, and uneven texture. This consultation allows you and Caren to discuss the different chemical peel options and decide on one that is best for you. Just a little bit of planning will help you get the results you want.
A chemical peel removes the outer layers of your skin, but it is still important to exfoliate before you have one performed. Getting rid of dead skin cells before your treatment lets the chemical peel do a better job. Stay away from abrasive exfoliation products and instead look for gentler treatments, such as a face cream with glycolic acid. Our med spa may recommend specific products for you during your initial consultation.
Allow Recovery Time
Once you heal from your chemical peel, you’ll be left with glowing, rejuvenated skin. There is a short recovery period after your treatment, however, during which you might experience redness, irritation, or peeling. Generally speaking, the deeper the chemical peel, the longer you will need to recover. If you think you might be embarrassed before you are fully recovered, adjust your work and social calendar as needed.

In the late 1980s, fat grafting was not an approved procedure for breast augmentations. Today, thanks to medical advances, fat grafting is a viable choice for many women. Watch this video to learn more.
During a fat grafting breast augmentation, fat cells are harvested from one area of the body and injected into the breasts for increased volume and fullness. Women who are in good health and who are finished having children are often good candidates for the procedure. Because this procedure uses your body’s own cells, there is no risk of allergic reaction to the graft.
