The effects of aging are sometimes more visible in your hands, because the skin is thinner and constantly exposed to harsh elements like the sun, multiple hands washing, and frequent movement and use. As we age, the skin on our hands becomes even thinner due to loss of subcutaneous fat, resulting in a bony appearance, with prominent veins and visible tendons.
The loss of soft tissue volume can be addressed very effectively with fillers, and Radiesse is FDA approved, and the go-to option for Liquid Rejuvenation of the back of the hands. Radiesse is an injectable calcium based filler that provides immediate volume and correction, but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen. This new collagen will help to smooth wrinkles and plump your skin for long-term results, effectively hiding vein, tendons, and bones.
The skin is first numbed with a topical anesthetic and ice. Then the injections are delivered into that area of the skin above the tendons and muscles in the hands. Although some swelling or bruising might occur, as long as the hand is numbed properly, it shouldn’t be painful or uncomfortable.
The treatment is fast and easy and results can last up to one year while repeat treatments often require less product and fewer injections.
