Hand Rejuvenation Treatment with Radiesse
Frequently the focus of cosmetic improvement is the face. Yet, one of the most age-telling body features is our hands. Because the skin on the back of the hands is extremely thin, the loss of fat padding on any level shows quickly. Take away that cushion and all the structures in the hand show up - the tendons, bones and the veins.
The natural fat cushion that we're born with begins to lessen in our late twenties and early 30's. By the time most of us hit 50, we have hands that tell the truth about our age — and often they can actually make us seem older than we are!
Sun exposure over the decades sets up a prolonged cascade of liver spots and brown patches that can keep popping up long after we've learned to stay out of the sun. Add that to the color changes brought about by the darkness of veins and your hands can sometimes look as if they've been bruised and battered in addition to looking more skeletal.
Combating the aging, boney and veiny hands takes more than hand cream (though that simple step does make a difference). The latest technology has given us a set of procedures that will have similar effects as those we have been able to accomplish for the face.
Radiesse as a Fat Replacement
Replacing the volume loss with a dermal filler is not a "new" thing. Fat transfers have been used to treat volume loss for many years. The staying power of fat is debatable, and it requires a source — that means some type of surgical removal from some other part of your body. It's expensive and time consuming.
Radiesse is a dense easy-to-mold filler made of Calcium-based microspheres. This is the same type of product that has been used in orthopedics for quite some time. With an established longevity of 12 to 24 months, Radiesse wears well in the hands and provides an instant cushion replacement. The depressions between the tendons and veins are refilled so both the bony appearance and the vein prominences (and the dark color of the veins) are reduced, giving your hands a softer, fuller appearance that signifies youth.
Radiesse is safe, effective and extremely popular both for its immediate effectiveness and long duration. The malleability and staying power of Radiesse have turned it into something of an injectable implant. It can be injected into the cheek and chin area to provide a nonsurgical implant that's completely natural looking. Radiesse is also considered "the" material when used for reshaping in the instance of asymmetry of the nose and as a nasal bridge builder for those with flat nose bridges.
What is Radiesse® and how does it work?
Radiesse is made up of tiny beads of calcium hydroxylapatite and has FDA approval. Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa) has been safely used in the body for many reasons including dental applications where bone build-up is needed for reconstruction and also in block form for cosmetic applications such as cheek, jaw, cranial and chin implants.
Radiesse™ is not a permanent filler. It is a long lasting, resorbable filler - with the effect claimed to last approximately 2 years depending on the client and the area treated.
Once injected into your skin, the smooth and spherical CaHA particles form a 'scaffold' which stimulates your own cells to produce collagen around the spheres. The gel carrier dissolves within a few months and over time, the CaHA particles gradually break down and are completely metabolised by the body, leaving only the new collagen structure.
Radiesse Rejuvenation Injection Procedure for the Hands
This is a fast, super simple procedure that literally converts older-looking hands to younger looking hands in minutes.
Injections in the back of the hands might be assumed to be painful, but in reality the procedure is virtually painless. It generally takes less than 20 minutes to inject both hands.
The Radiesse is mixed with Lidocaine aneasthetic prior to use so that the nerve endings in the skin are anesthetized. A "bolus" or "ball" of Radiesse is injected and then massaged into the volume-deficient areas. The product is easily massaged into place, and remains in those areas so the skin is smooth and even. Radiesse maintains a soft, natural feel and takes on the characteristics of the surrounding skin tissue. Once integrated into the skin, the presence of the Radiesse microspheres promotes new elastin and collagen production. Part of the long-lasting effect is your own new collagen.
Radiesse Hand Rejuvenation requires 2 syringes of Radiesse, however our procedure pricing makes this an extremely affordable option and the results can easily last 18 months or longer.
Most people find that they can return to work the following day after this procedure.
