If you haven’t already heard, there’s a new treatment out there that’s promising to revolution the way you think about aging and your hands. In fact, this treatment can hide wrinkles, increase skin volume, and even hide prominent veins and tendons – all of which can significantly age the appearance of your hands.
In short, this treatment can help your hands hide your real age – instead of giving it away!
Radiesse: The New Hand Rejuvenation Treatment
If you’ve heard of Radiesse before, then you know that it’s a popular filler that’s used to treat the deep wrinkles (nasiolabial folds) that stretch from the sides of the nose down to the corners of the mouth. Radiesse can also be used to contour and shape the jawline, which is ideal for individuals who may be self-conscious about having a weak jawline or misshapen chin.
After several studies, it was shown that Radiesse could have an amazing impact on the appearance of aged hands with prominent wrinkles and tendons. In fact, Radiesse is now the only FDA-approved filler for hand rejuvenation treatment.
Radiesse contains calcium hydroxylapatite, a bioidentical substance that performs as a filler once it’s injected into the treatment site. This means that it instantly adds volume to the treatment area, all while encouraging the skin’s production of collagen and elastin. The end result is that your skin looks renewed and firmer, both over the short and long term.
When it comes to hand rejuvenation, Radiesse works by adding instant volume to the hands. Since the skin of the hands is extremely thin, this volume helps hide the appearance of prominent veins, bulges, tendons, and other aging aspects. What’s more, the instant volumization helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The amount of Radiesse that’s necessary for hand rejuvenation will depend on your desired goals. Most patients usually start out with one to two 1.5cc syringes, which can be adjusted based on initial results.
