Treatment for Aging Hands

Frequently the focus of cosmetic improvement is the face. Yet, one of the most age-telling body features is our hands. As we age, our hands lose firmness and plumpness and begin to look bony and fragile with thin crepey skin texture and often they’ve become flecked with brown spots from sun exposure. Thankfully, Radiesse® at Advanced Dermatology Care is a great option for anyone seeking hand rejuvenation.

More specifically, Radiesse can be used to restore desired volume along the back of the hand in patients who exhibit signs of aging. These patients are bothered by the appearance of hollows and shadows that are the telltale signs of aging seen on the back of the hands. This undesirable look is usually the result of gradual and continual soft tissue volume loss and thinning. The end result is a more aged hand with prominent veins and tendons.

Radiesse Hand Rejuvenation Treatment

Radiesse hand treatment or Radiesse hand rejuvenation, is a relatively straight-forward, office-based procedure. The treatment involves placement of Radiesse filler under the skin along the back of the hand. The actual injection is quite comfortable because the injectable Radiesse filler contains lidocaine solution. Although some patients may experience a slight pinprick, there is an immediate numbing effect that is noted as the Radiesse is injected under the skin. Your provider will use the Radiesse very strategically to target the most prominent areas of aging along the back of the hand. Immediately after injecting the Radiesse, your provider will begin to sculpt the filler to achieve as much smoothing effect as possible. Within minutes of the Radiesse injection, you should see a nice improvement where the Radiesse filler actually plumps out the soft tissue to create a more youthful look.
