The main function of the skin components collagen, elastic and hyaluronic acid all work at providing firmness, strength and fullness to the skin. However the production of all these substances starts slowing down as we age, as part of the aging process. With this, your skin starts showing signs of aging with wrinkles and flaccid skin.
Cosmetic surgery provides a means of making your skin look younger by injecting missing substances to fill up gaps. Recently, new treatment options like Radiesse Houston not only help restore the youthful look to your skin, but also promote the growth of your own supply of collagen in the body.
What is a Radiesse injection?
Typically, a Radiesse injection consists of calcium hydroxyapatite and a gel of carboxymethylcellulose. Calcium hydroxyapatite is found mainly in bones but also serves as a foundation to promote the growth of collagen. By injecting Radiesse into your skin, your face starts looking fuller and younger because of the collagen replacement caused by calcium hydroxyapatite and gel.
This injection has to be directly applied on the area that has to be treated. As you may exercise some pain while injecting Radiesse Houston into your face, your cosmetic doctor may apply some topical anesthesia on the region before injection.
The procedure of injecting Radiesse Houston into your skin lasts anywhere between 15 to 45 minutes and is determined by the area of the space to be treated. Like any other facial or dermal filler, Radiesse gives instant results practically immediately after the injection. However when compared to other fillers, the effects of Radiesse injections last quite long, for anywhere between a year or two.
Your doctor may use Radiesse Houston in any part of the face including around the eyes, mouth and lips. Besides use as an anti aging substance, Radiesse Houston also helps in the effective reduction of all types of scars and also to reduce signs of facial lipoatrophy. This is a condition where the face loses fat as a side effect of HIV medications.
Choose the right doctor
Of course, all this is possible only if you choose a competent dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon for your Radiesse Houston session. Make sure you check the experience of the doctor, and preferably take a look at his before and after pictures of past customers he had treated. If possible, you could also get their contact information, and call them up to find out what they have to say about the doctor, and of course, their Radiesse Houston treatment.
