As we age, changes in the appearance of the skin can be bothersome and make us appear older than we are. When people think about aging skin, they often imagine wrinkles and fine lines on the face. However, the hands also start to show a person’s age after years of aging and sun damage. Over time, the hands can lose volume and develop visible veins that can make them appear unflattering. The injectable filler RADIESSE® is typically marketed to reduce signs of aging on the face, but it can also be used to help the hands gain back volume as well as to look and feel younger.
Benefits of RADIESSE® for Hand Rejuvenation
A good candidate for RADIESSE® is someone who would like to gain back volume in the hands to improve their appearance. RADIESSE® should not be used on anyone who has an allergy to any component of the product or who is pregnant, breastfeeding, or under the age of 18.
An in-office procedure, RADIESSE® can be performed within the same time as most people’s lunch break. RADIESSE® is injected through a small needle placed under the skin. Patients will immediately notice a change in the volume of the skin. The ingredients in RADIESSE® are designed to stimulate the body’s collagen production, which makes results immediate and long lasting.
Patients can return to work and regular activities immediately following RADIESSE® treatment. However, it is important to protect the skin from the sun. Keeping the skin protected will help results last longer and help prevent future skin damage from occurring to the hands. Results are expected to last at least one year or more.
With RADIESSE® for hand rejuvenation, patients can add volume to their hands and achieve smoother, more youthful hands.
