You know that if you want to look younger, it’s important to take care of your facial skin. That’s why there are so many treatments out there that promise to minimize wrinkles, fade dark spots, and help reveal radiant, youthful-looking skin.
But what about the other parts of your body that can be a dead giveaway for your real age – like your hands?
For far too long, the hands have been overlooked in the typical anti-aging regimen. It’s a real shame, too: since the skin of the hands is thin, wrinkles and fine lines often appear here first. Add to the fact that aging hands often show bumpy veins, it’s no wonder that aging hands can often be a source of embarrassment.
If the name sounds familiar, it’s because Radiesse is already used as a dermal filler for facial wrinkles and folds. When Radiesse is injected into the skin, it adds temporary volume, which helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, creases, and folds. Popular places for the application of Radiesse include nasolabial folds (the lines that stretch from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth) and cheeks.
Recent research showed that Radiesse can be used in a similar application for aging hands, which is why Radiesse is the only FDA-approved dermal filler for the treatment of volume loss in the hands. Radiesse is injected into several spots in the hands, which delivers instant volumization. As a result, the appearance of bumpy veins and tendons are minimized, helping the hands look smoother and younger. The volumization effect also minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, making this one of the most exciting anti-aging treatments available exclusively for the hands.
The results from Radiesse injections last anywhere from twelve to eighteen months. Some temporary swelling and pain at the injection site should be expected; however, these side effects usually fade within 24 to 48 hours after treatment.
