A different type of dermal filler is Radiesse®, it is not for everyone. It is made up of calcium based microspheres, suspended in a water based gel, unlike other fillers which are made up of hyaluronic acid. Radiesse® Volumizing filler works instantly by adding volume and lift to diminish the signs of aging. Radiesse® is different because it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen production. The production of collagen continues for several months after your initial injection. This treatment can last up to a year.
Just like our faces, our hands change over time. As one of the most visible parts of the body, the appearance of the hands can be a significant indicator of age. Veins and tendons become more prominent, and the youthful appearance fades.
Hand rejuvenation often requires a combination of different treatments to achieve the best results such as fillers to give back volume, chemical peels to help with texture and IPL to lighten dark, age spots.
Radiesse® is the first dermal filler proven to immediately restore volume loss in the back of hands, giving you smooth, natural-looking, and long-lasting results.
Radiesse is injected under the skin of the back of the hand (not the palm) to enhance the appearance of the hands. Once your hands are plumped, you will no longer be able to see wrinkles, tendons or veins standing out. Each hand usually requires one syringe of Radiesse. After Radiesse is injected, it is gently massaged into place to evenly distribute the material. You may experience redness, bruising or swelling immediately and lasting for a few days. Ice should be applied to minimize bruising and you should refrain from vigorous hand use for 24 hours.
If you’d like to have smoother, younger looking hands, try Radiesse injections.
