The tear sac is sunk in and the eyes look tired. The cheeks sag and nasolabial folds develop between the corners of the mouth and the nose. In some cases, flabby cheeks also develop next to the chin and the corners of the mouth droop.
Many see these transformations as unavoidable. However, there is a way to turn back time – lost volume can be replaced.
We’re glad to offer you two tried and tested filler treatments: Hyaluronic Acid therapy and Radiesse® volumizing filler.
- Hyaluron Acid
- Volumizing filler
Hyaluronic Acid is naturally produced by the body. It binds lymphatic fluid and lends the skin a healthy and elastic form. Unfortunately, the body produces less Hyaluronic Acid with age. Assuming babies possess a hundred percent production, this decreases to around 30% by the age of fifty and eventually seizes with old age.
Artificially produced Hyaluronic Acid is a sound medical product used for the correction of eye corners, lips, as well as cheeks and throat; it’s also injected into joints. We use top-of-the-line products by Merz: Hyal ACP, Belotero, Radiesse, Boccuture, Xeamin.
We inject a high-molecular filler into the tissue under the skin, for deep wrinkles (Belotero Basic oder Belotero Intense). This enables us to attain smooth volume filling with no visible contours.
In the case of fine wrinkles, we use Belotero Soft, a low molecular gel, which is injected directly under the skin surface. We discuss the option of laser therapy with our patients with fine wrinkles before they decide on fillers, considering that laser therapy has longer lasting effects.
The Belotero hyaluronic acid we use doesn’t contain any foreign proteins. Consequently, there’s no risk of the dreaded blue lines (Tyndall effect) emerging. The injected gel is distributed optimally in the tissue rendering the effect long lasting. With time, the acid is broken down thereby releasing the natural hyaluronic acid in the treated area and inducing a positive effect: cushioning the tissues.
The treatment is well tolerated. Local bruising, or swelling could occur due to the injection but these disappear after a short time. Seven days before the treatment, it is recommended that patients refrain from taking any anticoagulant medications, like Aspirin, in order to reduce the occurrence of bleeding. This also applies for all flu medication and painkillers that contain acetylsalicylic acid. We don’t recommend hyaluronic acid treatment for marcumar patients. Please let us know if you have a blood coagulation disorder.
The costs involved depend on the duration of the treatment and the amount of hyaluronic acid used. Generally, the minimum cost of one injection is 260 Euro. In some circumstances, laser therapy may be less expensive. We’ll be sure to advise you of the more feasible treatment.
You can pay for the treatment in monthly installments. In order to facilitate this option, we work together with; medipay, a specialist for patient installment payments. Click here for further information.

Similarly to the hyaluronic acid treatment, the gel used for volume lifting is very well tolerated. You will immediately notice the difference after a single session of no longer than one hour: you’ll look younger, fresher and more attractive. Though the positive change is instantaneous, it will remain discrete.
Volume lifting can be done to the entire face. It is considered a better alternative and a more effective treatment than the conventional, surgical face lifting. Patients don’t need to undergo anesthesia nor need hospitalization. There is no scarring, patients can resume work immediately and facial expressions and gestures remain intact. Another clear advantage: this treatment is much cheaper.
Your treating physician is a specialist in this field and has been trained and examined by experts. The expert know-how of the Kosmig team has awarded it the “center of excellence” standing by Merz.
Volume lifting is much less painful that the superficial surfacing with conventional fillers. This is due to the fact that Radiesse® is injected into the lower skin tissue that contain substantially less pain receptors than the skin surface.
The positive volume effect will lend your face the desired youthful appearance immediately and will last for a long time.
If you want to keep it discrete, we will start with what we call “the minor treatment”. This is designed such that you will look fresher and younger through minimal corrections on several areas of your face. An additional volume lifting is always possible at a later time such that a gradual rejuvenation is attained discretely.
The complete treatment includes corrections, or resurfacing of:
- the forehead, including the frown wrinkles and crow’s feet
- lifting of the outer sides of the eyebrows
- operating drooping eyelids and tear sacs
- tear trough correction (deep, tired eyes with dark troughs disappears)
- deep naso-labial lines
- upper lip lines (smoker’s lips)
- lifting the corners of the mouth
- light accentuation of the lips to volume-filling of upper and lower lips
- filling of the so-called “Merkel lines” (angry mouth)
- filling of the marionette crease and reduction of the so-called marionette cheeks
- accentuating the cheek bones
- filling of hollow cheeks
- filling of thin and wrinkled ear lobes
- nose correction without surgery
- correction of haggard hands
Radiesse® lasts much longer than all cross-linked hyaluronic acid-fillers. According to most recent research, the effects of Radiesse® last even longer than lipofilling. The reason: Radiesse® is soon converted to endogenous, collagen rich tissue. These new tissues are then maintained for an indefinite period of time. It is eventually broken down through the natural ageing process.
The investment in a substantially healthier looking, younger appearance is reasonable. The investment depends on the extent of loss of volume due to age. Based on our experience, the following are average costs:
- between 35 and 45 years: 260 Euro
- between 45 and 55 years: 520 Euro
- between 55 and 65 years: 960 Euro
You can pay for the treatment in monthly installments. In order to facilitate this option, we work together with medipay, a specialist for patient installment payments. Click here for further information.
We hope to have aroused your curiosity and interest in Radiesse®. Should you have question about this treatment, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We look forward to talking to you.
