Facial volume loss is a common part of the aging process, but now you can regain that volume naturally with Allofill. Traditional fat grafting requires liposuction and can cause some discomfort with required downtime. Allofill offers a noninvasive solution to volume loss while still delivering instant and lasting results.
What is Allofill?
Allofill uses an injectable formula that works with your body for natural results. Regular fat grafting requires harvesting fat from another part of the body using liposuction techniques. With Allofill, this step is eliminated. The formula uses naturally occurring allograft fat tissue to target areas of lost volume and soft tissue defects. The allograft tissue is harvested from donors, sterilized, and prepared for placement, so it’s ready to use when you arrive.
How Does Allofill Work?
Allofill is injected under the skin where it adds instant volume in places fat loss has occurred. The injected allograft provides the framework for new cells and blood vessels to populate. As your body goes through its natural healing process, Allofill is reshaped into normal soft tissue, giving you natural volume and stronger tissue.
Results of Allofill
There is no downtime after treatment with Allofill, allowing patients to return to their normal everyday activities. Side effects are similar to other injectable treatments and include mild redness, swelling, and bruising at the site of injection. You will notice an immediate increase in volume after treatment with more results as your body produces new cells. One treatment is enough for lasting results, but you might choose future treatment sessions to maintain your appearance.
