Dr Merle performs nanofat injections at his practice. Sessions usually last 2 hours and are carried out under a local anaesthetic. A few millilitres of fat are first removed using liposuction (from the tummy or thigh area, for example) and then these are emulsified and filtered to create a high concentration of the components required for skin renewal. Dr Merle will then proceed to carefully and gradually inject the emulsified fat under the skin. The results will be visible after a few weeks, the time it takes the skin to renew itself – it will be more radiant, brighter and any rings, wrinkles or flaws diminished. The results of nanofat injections are lasting.
