Radiesse Injections For Hand Rejuvenation
Many patients who are concerned about aging tend to focus on the appearance of their face, neck, breasts, stomach, and legs. However, one part of the body that is often among the first to show signs of aging is frequently neglected – the hands. There is a common saying, “If you want to know a woman’s age, look at her hands.”
Hand aging is characterized by a loss of tissue volume and elasticity of the skin, increasing the visibility of tendons, veins, and bones on the back of the hand and causing the skin to appear dull, wrinkled, and shriveled.
The soft tissue filler Radiesse has been used to improve volume loss and smooth wrinkles on the face for many years. Since Radiesse is formulated to stay exactly where it is injected, it is ideal for restoring lost volume and masking tendons, veins, and bones in the back of the hand. It has not surprisingly also been recently approved by the FDA as safe and effective for hand rejuvenation. In clinical trials, the vast majority of treated subjects had a significant improvement in hand appearance three months after injection of Radiesse.
Before and After Hand Rejuvenation via Radiesse
The amount of filler a patient will need depends on the particular amount of volume loss in their hands, along with their desired final result. Nevertheless, Radiesse provides instant results that last at least a year. The procedure also requires minimal downtime, with most patients experiencing mild redness and swelling for 24 hours following treatment.
