As we age, our face looses volume as the fat cells shrink. "Space lift” is a technique done by using injectable fillers, including hyaluronic acid, collagen, Sculptra and fat, to lift away signs of aging to an extent. Space lift also restores fullness in the brow area and fills any facial creases. Space lift varies based on the quantity and combination of injectables used. Fillers are injected at varying depths beneath the skin to make up space and create a new shape.

If fat is used as filler, it is taken from an area where you don't want, like the tummy, inner thigh or buttocks. This fat is then processed and re-injected all in one treatment session. Fat may be injected into the skin or muscle, or below the skin and muscle. Too little fill can always be adjusted with additional injections in the future. Too much fill with fat and you may be sporting chubby cheeks permanently. The results of a space lift last from 3 months to 3 years, depending on the filler used.
