With the FDA approval of Radiesse for the rejuvenation of the hand, we now have an innovative solution for individuals who have volume loss and increased visibility of the veins and tendons in the hand. Radiesse will add volume to the hands making them appear more youthful.
Another tell tale sign of aging is pigmented lesions or “age spots” on the hand. With the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), these spots are lessened or completely resolved.
Check out this video of Dr. Chris giving Radiesse injections to a patient while we discuss the process and what to expect:
How can I prevent my hands from looking old?
Generally, a healthier lifestyle which indicates a good diet and regular exercise can be helpful. A no smoking policy should also be enforced to ensure more youthful hands. Be sure to use a good quality sunscreen on your hands every day. Often times people think that sunscreen on the backs of the hands is not necessary in the winter; it should be noted that sun exposure to the backs of the hand at any time will cause aging.
Is injecting Radiesse to the hands painful?
The Radiesse filler used for aging hands contains a numbing agent which makes the treatment very tolerable. In most cases, there is little to no down time following the procedure.
