When we think of aging, we often think of volume loss, skin laxity, and fine lines and wrinkles on the face. However, don’t overlook the hands.
The hands lose volume, and when the fat cushion is gone, the bones, tendons, and veins become more visible. Dr. Shaun Patel is pleased to offer a solution: Radiesse filler for hands.
Isn’t Radiesse A Facial Filler?
Yes, Radiesse has been used for many years to add volume to the face through collagen stimulation. However, it is also approved for use on the hands.
When injected into the hands, it stimulates the body’s natural collagen production and adds volume that can last up to a year, turning back the hands of time. This is one of the few fillers that has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of the hands.
What Can Radiesse For The Hands Treat?
Radiesse can treat two main signs of aging that commonly affect the hands. The first is volume loss. Volume loss occurs when fat wastes away beneath the surface of the skin. This process can be accelerated by various factors, including sun exposure, smoking, and alcohol abuse.
The second is the visibility of veins and tendons. Youthful hands look smooth and plump. Meanwhile, aging hands are characterized by a sharp contrast between the veins and surrounding skin. Radiesse can treat volume loss and minimize the prominence of veins.
Who Is A Candidate For Radiesse Filler For The Hands?
Many people are good candidates for hand rejuvenation treatments using Radiesse. It is ideal for adults who want to restore lost volume and minimize the look of visible tendons and veins. The best way to learn about your candidacy is to book a consultation. If our injector agrees that Radiesse is the right solution, he will create a treatment plan to achieve your desired results.
You should not use Radiesse if you have a history of severe allergies, a bleeding disorder, an active skin infection, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Similarly, Radiesse hand injections are not appropriate for people who are allergic to lidocaine or similar medicines.
How Long Before Radiesse Filler Results Are Visible On Hands?
You don’t have to wait to see your Radiesse hand treatment results. It offers an immediate improvement in both volume and vein prominence for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
How Long Does Radiesse Filler Last In The Hands?
Radiesse results typically last a year or more in most patients. However, everyone responds to the treatment differently. Your body may metabolize the filler faster or slower than average.
Booking regular maintenance appointments will help keep your hands looking youthful. You can also take steps to prevent visible aging, like applying the right sunscreen and skincare products.
Is There Any Downtime?
You’ll be glad to learn there’s minimal downtime associated with Radiesse injections. You can resume most activities right away. However, you should avoid anything that makes your skin flush for 24 hours. That includes exercising, soaking in a hot tub, and sitting in a steam room.
Do not rub or massage the treated area for 24 hours. Similarly, avoid unprotected sun exposure until the redness and swelling subside. These simple steps will promote optimal healing.
What Happens During A Radiesse Injection Treatment?
The entire process is relatively simple. First, patients schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Shaun Patel. He evaluates the hands and determines if their appearance can benefit from an injectable such as Radiesse. Once patients have decided that Radiesse is right for them, the injections are done and patients will notice gradual improvement over time as collagen builds up and enhances the hands.
