Your face often shows visible signs of aging faster than other parts of your body. The skin on your face is thin, and sun exposure, changes in weight, lax muscles or the aging process can add years to your face. In addition, gravity takes its toll on our bodies – particularly our faces. Many people experience vertical sagging in their face. Contoura can help reverse these effects of gravity and aging.
Contoura takes a different approach as compared to facial fillers. It restores volume by transferring fat cells from the lower part of the body to the face. This replenishes and replaces facial tissue that has degraded over time. Once fat cells are removed from the body, they are washed and separated and isolated from other tissue. Adult stem cells are then added to the tissue, making the injection of the cells more permanent than other tissue facial fillers. It is then gently injected into areas of the face which need rejuvenating.
Contoura can be used near the temples, under the eyes, and in the cheeks, folds between the nose and mouth, corners of the mouth, and chin area. Transferring tissue volumizes areas of the face that have lost tissue, giving you a more youthful look. The tissue transfer is precise and only targets the treated areas.
The Contoura procedure takes about an hour and a half and is performed under local anesthesia. Downtime is minimal, and most patients experience only slight bruising and swelling.
