Using the body's own fat for a naturally beautiful look

Fast, well tolerated, 100 % body's own substances

The ACA (autologous conditioned adipose tissue) technique allows to obtain 2 types of body own substances:

  • Adipose tissue (microfat) for lipofilling
  • Regenerative cells – SVF (stromal vascular fraction) for rejuvenation, scar revision and wound healing

Your benefits

  • Body’s own substances, therefore comparably safe and well tolerated
  • “Naturally” beautiful appearance
  • Possibility to combine autologous fat / regenerative cells with, e.g., platelet rich plasma (PRP) for stimulation of the body’s own regeneration processes 1

How does it work?


  1.  Your physician performs liposuction from the appropriate donor site of your body (e.g., belly, waist or thigh).

  2. Depending on your target zone, a minimum of 15 ml of adipose tissue is harvested to isolate the regenerative cells. A special system is used to perform this procedure.

  3.  Your physician then injects these cells at the treatment site (e.g., your face) to stimulate the body’s own regeneration processes. 2–4

  4. The injected cells harbour a range of different functions, including promoting skin rejuvenation through remodelling processes of the tissue and supporting the blood supply to the treated area. 4,6,10,11  In combination with lipofilling, regenerative cells can support volume improvement to create longer-lasting results.
