Hand Rejuvenation with Fillers
Your hands certainly do not look as old as you
think, however if you are truly bothered by their appearance, there is a simple
solution! Using filler to volumize and conceal visible veins, tendons, and/or
joints is a safe and natural-looking option to rejuvenate the hands.
Radiesse, the only FDA-approved filler for the
hands, is more robust than hyaluronic acid fillers, and can last up to a year
or more. I typically inject a syringe of Radiesse for each hand using a
cannula, a long, blunt needle that can be safely and comfortably maneuvered beneath the skin. This method allows for less injection sites, which
translates into less swelling/bruising, and the ability to be as smooth and precise as
possible with placement.
When you are ready to move forward with
treatment, be sure to consult with a board certified Dermatologist to further
discuss Radiesse injections. Best of luck!
Radiesse for Younger Looking Hands
A great option to improve the "bony and veiny" look of your hands that concerns you, is a dermal filler. In my practice, I have successfully used Radiesse to dramatically improve the look of ageing hands, restoring that plump, youthful appearance. Radiesse is a filler made from tiny calcium-based microspheres in a gel form used to add volume, helping to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, perfect for the folds and crevasses of the hands. Mixing Radiesse with a numbing agent makes this procedure very tolerable with minimal discomfort and while there is no technical downtime, some mild swelling should be expected for a few days post treatment. My best advice would be to consult with a board-certified dermatologist, experienced in injecting Radiesse into the hands.
