Scientists and surgeons have known that fat has great restorative potential since World War I when it’s said they used it to fast-track the soldiers’ wound healing. Lipogems is the innovation of a company from Milan, Italy who developed the technology and a procedure to use fat to harness this power of natural rejuvenation. Lipogems are getting amazing results as not only a more natural filler but after being injected it continues to promote healthy tissues and skin so is used as a natural rejuvenation and anti-ageing treatment.
So, how does Lipogems work?
The Lipogems process involves a tiny cannula removing or harvesting fat from your body (usually your love handles, thighs or abdomen) in a similar technique to liposuction, only far less invasive because of the size of the cannulae – they are much smaller than those used for liposuction. This harvested fat then undergoes a process whereby any impurities such as blood and oil that lead to inflammation are removed. It then breaks this fat down into smaller clusters of cells that are then able to be reinjected into the targeted areas.
The treatment involves a tiny puncture being made into your skin (no stitches!) and is performed as an outpatient procedure in approximately one hour requiring local anaesthesia.
With over 20 clinical trials being conducted in several countries around the world, it has been proven that fat processed with the Lipogems system has a better graft survival than other techniques or devices on the market.
What results can you expect after a Lipogems treatment?
Lipogems is used as an injectable filler so it can be used to volumise an area where you have experienced tissue loss, but it is also a powerful rejuvenation treatment where tissue structure in the injected fat repairs and regenerates surrounding cells giving a more youthful appearance, as well as actually being a lot healthier!

Lipogems is often used in conjunction with Factor 4, another game changing non-surgical treatment. Results on patients who use this powerful combination of treatments are literally turning back the clock when it comes to their appearance.
