Houston Botox Ushers in New Age of Anti-Aging Injection Procedures

Houston Botox® addresses wrinkles and folds in the skin, plus facial muscle contractions, three of the early telltale signs of aging. Skin ages all over, but the signs of aging are prone to show up in sun-exposed areas. The face, neck and hands are the most susceptible. Photo-aging can itself through sagging, dehydration, growths and wrinkles. Smoking also causes dehydration, especially around the mouth and cheeks. The drier the skin becomes, the more it loses its natural elasticity. This elasticity is primarily due to natural collagen deposits. As this dries, the skin sags and wrinkles, ranging from fine lines to more pronounced creases. Houston Medspa Bella Rosa Clinic helps to reverse the signs of aging by smoothing or eradicating wrinkles through a current generation of injection fillers such as Botox®, Radiesse®, Juvederm® and Sculptra® Aesthetic.

For facial rejuvenation, Botox® injections address areas of the face that are impacted by muscle contractions, such as around the eyes, the forehead and between the brows. A micro-needle is used to inject the solution into the affected areas after a topical anesthetic is applied. The higher the concentration of solution injected, the fewer the treatments required over time. Botox weakens the muscle contraction which in turn smooths the wrinkles or creases.

Radiesse® wrinkle filler is an injection procedure that stimulates the production of new collagen through collagenesis. Juvederm® is another form of dermal filler which consists of a natural body compound known as hyaluronic acid. The solution, injected into the skin to hydrate and add the volume, comes in Ultra and Ultra Plus strengths depending upon the severity of the areas affected.

New to the Bella Rosa facial rejuvenation product line is Sculptra® Aesthetic . This process is also based on the concept of collagen replacement. The solution consists of an FDA approved biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by medical practitioners for several decades.

Bella Rosa Clinic, the Houston Medspa is located within the Museum District Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center in Houston, Texas. Founded by world renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark A, Schusterman, the combined facilities offer cutting edge surgical and non-surgical procedures to affect a youthful appearance in both women and men.
