Hand Rejuvenation: Radiesse Before & After Photos
Using Radiesse to Improve the Appearance of Aging Hands
Radiesse, or calcium hydroxyapatite, is a calcium-based filler in a gel carrier that is ideal for structural building and volume restoration of the hands and face. It is FDA-approved for hand rejuvenation, supplying much needed volume to the back of hands as we age. Radiesse has a white, opaque color and is ideal for camouflaging visible tendons and tortuous veins that characterize the aging appearance of hands. Radiesse is unique in its ability to simultaneously create volume restoration while supplying a product that stimulates the body to build new collagen as it is gradually metabolized over time.
At Art of Skin MD, Dr. Palm and her staff ensures that hand rejuvenation using Radiesse filler is a safe, comfortable, and effective treatment. She utilizes a blunt-tipped cannula technique to deliver Radiesse to the back of the hands, avoiding the opportunity for bruising and increasing patient comfort during the procedure. Local numbing is blended into the Radiesse prior to filler placement, ensuring the procedure is pain-free.
Typically, 1-2 syringes of Radiesse is necessary for meaningful results with hand rejuvenation. Typically, one syringe of Radiesse is divided between both hands, with a touch-up visit in 1 month. This minimizes swelling and provides gradual results over time. The duration of Radiesse in the back of the hands is approximately 9-12 months.
