Can facial fillers such as Radiesse be used for skin tightening in Houston area patients?
Patients near the area of Houston often approach dermatologists such as Dr. Weaver about addressing the signs of aging. Aging skin is caused by collagen lost after the age of 30. When the natural collagen and elastin loss occurs, it results in skin laxity. The skin becomes loose and begins to develop fine lines and wrinkles. These fine lines and wrinkles are a common sign of aging and they can make many patients look much older than they feel. This is when patients begin to ask for procedures such as skin tightening to address skin laxity.
Skin laxity is a problem that many patients believe requires plastic surgery. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Dr. Weaver of Dr. W Dermatology discusses with his patients that there is a less invasive way of achieving skin tightening by restoring lost collagen. This can be done with facial fillers such as Radiesse.
Radiesse is a facial filler that is injected and made from calcium hydroxylapatite. This element of the injectable is known for improving collagen production. When collagen begins to build, volume is added and patients will notice a skin tightening effect. It can result in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, which can contribute to a more youthful appearance.
Radiesse injections are performed by a dermatologist at Dr. W Dermatology and they are known for lasting many months before reinjection is needed. Radiesse is just one of many dermal fillers and injectables available at our practice, including Restylane, Perlane, Juvéderm, Belotero, and Botox. They can be used together to create the ultimate “liquid face lift,” allowing patients the chance to avoid plastic surgery for many years to come.
If you reside in or around the Houston area and have considered visiting a dermatologist to find out how you can turn back the hands of time, contact the team at Dr. W Dermatology today to book a consultation appointment with Dr. Weaver. He can assist patients in determining the best non-invasive treatment for their specific needs and help patients achieve a more rejuvenated appearance free from distinctive fine lines, wrinkles, and folds resulting from collagen loss.
