Radiesse in Sugar Land, TX
Dr. David Stapenhorst and the staff of Signature Plastic Surgery are proud to offer Radiesse® treatments to the residents of Sugar Land, Texas, and Houston, Texas. Radiesse® is injectable filler that stimulates the body’s natural collagen production to fill in fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen is a substance in the body that keeps the skin looking youthful. Over time, though, collagen breaks down, and the body produces less collagen. The result is fine lines and wrinkles. Radiesse® contains small microspheres that the body naturally uses to form connective tissue. The connective tissue forms a structure that the body fills with collagen. Dr. Stapenhorst recommends Radiesse® to his patients who want subtle changes to their appearances over time. Typically, Radiesse® treatments last for one year or more.
