Radiesse® for Hands
Are Your Hands Giving Away Your Age?
RADIESSE for hands is now the first and only FDA-approved filler used to correct volume loss in the back of the hands. RADIESSE has been used to treat facial wrinkles for almost 10 years and has been found to be very successful.
One of the first, most tell-tale signs of aging is in the appearance of the hands. Over time our hands naturally lose volume and begin to show signs of aging. Prominent knuckles and tendons combined with large ropy veins can add 10 years to one’s appearance. To add to the problem, the hands are almost impossible to hide.
Fortunately, there is a way to turn back the hands of time with the first and only FDA approved dermal filler Radiesse for Hands. Radiesse is not only indicated for use of facial dermal fillers. In addition to having the efficacy to fill in the deepest creases, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines, while stimulating natural collagen growth, Radiesse for Hands® is now available to improve the appearance of aging hands. Usually only one treatment is needed, however this depends on the severity of volume loss and desired outcome. Results are immediate. Bruising and swelling may be associated with the treatment which should resolve within a week.
What is Radiesse?
RADIESSE is comprised of a water-based gel and material found naturally occurring in the bones, Calcium Hydroxylapatite, a calcium-based material which is naturally compatible with living systems in our bodies and is biodegradable.
Upon injection, RADIESSE immediately begins to build volume and corrects loose skin. It continues to work over time by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen.
Over time, the water-based gel is absorbed by the body and processes the Hydroxylapatite microspheres leaving behind only the body’s own natural collagen.
