Collagen replacement is considered one of the most effective techniques for anti-aging. Radiesse® uses a unique mechanism to stimulate collagen production to firm the skin and soften lines and wrinkles. Dr. Balinger offers Radiesse® for men and women in Houston, Conroe, and the surrounding areas of Texas.
What is Radiesse®?
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that boosts collagen production in your skin to correct lines and wrinkles. The product contains microscopic spheres that provide support to the skin and stimulate collagen production. Over time, your body absorbs the microspheres, leaving the collagen in place for long-lasting anti-aging benefits. Dr. Balinger recommends Radiesse® for:
- Moderate to severe scars
- Nasolabial folds
How Much Does Radiesse® Cost?
After you discuss the benefits of Radiesse® with Dr. Balinger during the consultation, we can provide more details about the cost of your Radiesse® treatments. We offer free initial consultations at our offices in Houston and Conroe, as well as financing options for our patients.
What Are the Benefits of Radiesse®?
- Boosts collagen in the skin
- Long-lasting results
- No surgery required
- No downtime or lengthy recovery
How is Radiesse® Performed?
Radiesse® is injected into the wrinkle using an ultra-fine needle. Dr. Balinger makes several injections for even and consistent distribution of the gel. Most patients remain relaxed during the treatment. If you are particularly sensitive to needles and injections, Dr. Balinger can numb the skin before performing the injections. In most cases, treatment with Radiesse® takes 15 to 30 minutes.
What is Recovery Like After Radiesse®?
You can return to your normal schedule after your Radiesse® injections. Dr. Balinger will explain any aftercare that is needed, such as cold compresses for any swelling and minimizing pressure on the area for a few days. Discomfort is minimal, but you can take non-prescription pain medications if needed.
How Long Will Radiesse® Results Last?
After seven to 10 days, you will see the results of your Radiesse® treatment, and the results may last for one to two years. The most significant factor when discussing the longevity of Radiesse® treatments is how quickly your body breaks down the new collagen. You can take steps to slow down the collagen destruction by using high-quality skin care that prevents sun damage. We recommend that you schedule follow-up appointments with Dr. Balinger for him to evaluate the area and determine when you need additional Radiesse® injections.
