Reduce wrinkles & replenish lost collagen for a long-lasting youthful look with volumising fillers…
Younger-looking skin can be yours with our fabulous collagen-stimulating treatments.
The loss of collagen can age your face making it look thin and narrow with sunken cheeks. At Agno Aesthetics we can deliver long-lasting natural enhancements by restoring lost facial volume to give you a fuller, younger-looking face and radiant skin.
Volumising treatments work by stimulating the build-up of the body’s natural collagen to help smooth out lines, wrinkles and folds and reduce sagging. Lips can also be enhanced and defined to give you a subtle, fuller look without the ‘trout pout’.
We achieve excellent results using Sculptra® and Radiesse® which are safe injectable dermal fillers. You can expect to see improvements for up to two years (six months for lip augmentations), although this varies from person to person.

How many treatments will I need?
The average number of treatment is three with a six to eight week period between treatments. You will see the effects immediately .
How long will the treatment last?
You can enjoy a more youthful appearance for up to two years, although individual results may vary. Lip enhancement treatments last up to six months due to the muscular activity ansd the soft natural products used.
What is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is a simple, injectable volumising treatment that works by stimulating the build-up of the body’s natural collagen. It also helps to restore lost facial volume to give you a fuller, younger-looking face. The enhancement is long lasting and looks completely natural.
What ingredients are in Sculptra®?
The main ingredient of Sculptra® is poly-l-lactic acid, which has been successfully used in facial treatments for more than 25 years. Sculptra® was specially developed to repair facial scars and contour defects, and to treat lipoatrophy.
Which areas can you treat?
You can restore facial contours and eliminate lines, wrinkles and sunken cheeks without resorting to face lifts or cosmetic surgery. Dermal fillers such as Sculptra® and Radiesse® can help to correct:
Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds)
Folds around the corners of the mouth (marionette lines)
Wrinkles and lines in the cheeks or chin
How many treatments will I need?
The effect is gradual and exceptionally natural looking. Two or three treatments are usually required, and the benefits should become noticeable after about six weeks.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler which is injected into the skin to stimulate collage production and produce an uplifting effect, called the V-Effect Lift.
What ingredients are in Radiesse®?
Radiesse® volumising filler is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolises the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen.
How safe are these treatments?
Sculptra® is well tolerated by the body. It is biocompatible and biodegradable. Poly-l-lactic acid has been used in facial treatments for over 25 years. Your specialist will discuss any concerns you may have, and any possible side effects you may experience.
Radiesse® is also well tolerated by the body. It is FDA-approved for subdermal implantation for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Does it hurt?
As with all injections, you may experience mild discomfort but most clients tolerate volumising fillers well. We can add lidocaine to Radiesse® to reduce any pain and we can also apply a topical anaesthetic.
Are there any side effects?
After injection, patients may experience redness, bruising and/or swelling. Most side effects of treatment resolve within a few hours. Rare side effects include unevenness or firmness in the area that has been injected. This will resolve in the new few weeks.
How long will it last?
Your treatment will be tailored to your requirements and the look you want to achieve. Your specialist will be able to give you an idea of how long your treatment will last but, in general, the effect should last for between three and six months, after which your muscles will regain their strength. You can, of course, return for regular treatments.
