Hand rejuvenation can have a significant impact on how others interpret your age
The Indications for Hand Rejuvenation are:
- improving skin texture, wrinkles and alleviating areas of pigmentation, using an intense pulse light (IPL), chemical peels or a Carbon Dioxide (CO2) laser
- volume replacement with either a dermal fillers, such as Bellafill (permanent) or Restylane Lyft or autologous fat transfer (permanent)
Dermal fillers include hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane Lyft, that last about 6 months or Bellafill that lasts permanently. However, fat transfer allows minimal risk, unlimited volume and natural appearance. The fat is acquired from your body through liposuction to harvest the fat.
The fat is harvested from your body by a technique to minimize fat cell trauma. Ultrasound or VASER liposuction acquires the most alive fat cells. In a recent study, 85% of fat cells and 87% of stem cells and the stromal vascular fraction were alive from the harvesting process. Additionally, vented (VentX) blunt tip cannulas prevent injury to the fat cells by minimizing the shearing forces during the suction process.
Processing the fat after harvesting will lead to more reliable and improved fat cell survival. The technique to acquire the fat is processed to attain the smaller, younger, healthier fat cells.Two of the best methods for processing fat are the LipoKit, also known as the Adivive System, and the PureGraft Lipodialysis System. Dr. Troell recently completed a study on natural breast augmentation comparing these two methods. Both showed over a 92% fat viability prior to transfer. The LipoKit compacts the fat cells more, so per unit area, had a greater volume enhancement outcome.
The result of this process in the recipient area of fat transfer is less swelling, a more rapid recovery, with less changes of the the hands and finger appearance over the healing period and the BEST procedure outcome.
Improving Fat Survival:
These refined and processed fat cells may also be combined with your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) containing eight growth factors/cytokines and/or your own adipose derived stem cells to optimize fat cell survival during the buttock augmentation step in the procedure.
An attractive body can be transformed by artistically sculpting your body. Like a sculptor removing clay from one area and replacing it in another, smoothing lines and curves as well as optimizing proportions creates the masterpiece…you!
Hand rejuvenation is a procedure that has the advantages of minimal discomfort, rapid recovery and short down time with a high safety profile.Please feel free to call us at Masterpiece M.D. in Corona Del Mar/Newport Beach, CA (949) 870-2688.
