Clear Lake Dermatologists Serve Patients Requiring Radiesse® Treatment in Webster, League City, Friendswood and Houston, TX
Clients looking for a more youthful appearance may want to try Radiesse®, which can now be performed for residents in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area at Clear Lake Dermatology. Radiesse® is an FDA-approved procedure designed to fill fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. Benefits can be seen almost immediately, and the skin continues to improve over a period of time after the procedure.
Radiesse® is delivered as an injection to areas that need to be filled due to wrinkling of the skin. Radiesse® consists of a variety of compounds that are enclosed in a gel-like substance. The combination of ingredients in Radiesse®, including calcium ions, carbon, and hydrogen, serves two purposes after being injected. The first benefit is that it fills lines in the face to give skin a smoother appearance. The second benefit of Radiesse® is that it helps the body stimulate collagen production, so the skin’s appearance will continue to improve over time.
The treatment can be given in the Clear Lake Dermatology clinic on an outpatient basis. First, our doctors will select the right locations for injections to be administered. The area will be cleaned, and then an antiseptic will be applied. Radiesse® is injected underneath the skin in the predetermined location. The entire procedure normally takes around 15 minutes from start to finish.
Although Radiesse® is considered to be a safe procedure, some swelling, discoloration, or bruising may occur near the injection site but normally lasts for only a day or two after the procedure. If patients experience swelling, itching, or a burning sensation after this time, they should contact Clear Lake Dermatology immediately. A risk of nodules developing in the injection area might occur. This side effect is rare but would require additional surgeries to correct it.
