Cosmetic Dermal Fillers
Dr Agnes employs a conservative approach to the use of dermal fillers in order to produce natural-looking results. In experienced hands, small amounts of filler can produce subtle yet dramatic improvements. The aim is to look better and fresher at any age, while still looking like yourself.
Cosmetic dermal fillers are used to restore volume loss, correct asymmetry and enhance the natural contours of the face. BioAesthetics uses a range of dermal fillers that are made of an injectable gel similar in structure to our natural subcutaneous tissue - we will call it the A-Range. There are seven different types of fillers in the A-Range -each of which is used to address specific aesthetic concerns. The density of the gel determines what areas it can be used for and how long it lasts. The thicker the filler, the deeper it must be placed and the longer it lasts. With seven to choose from, the whole spectrum of external signs of ageing can be addressed.
The A-Range of fillers are premium products that produce more natural-looking and longer lasting results.
The procedure takes approximately 20-40 minutes. In most cases topical anaesthetic is not required, however is available if needed.
Recovery varies depending on the area being treated.
The effect is immediate. If bruising occurs, it may last up to two weeks.
The results last 9-18 months.
