Are Your Hands Betraying Your Age?
Why Do Our Hands Look Old?
We all know that we need to take care of the skin on our face if we want to maintain youth. The face is where we concentrate most of our efforts with anti-aging products and clinical procedures.
The most common area we forget about is our hands. No one likes the day when they look down and say “My hands look old with lots of veins”. The hands are one of the first areas to show aging, this is due to losing volume.
Once the volume is lost the veins the tendons will start to become more visible. The skin on the hands also starts to thin and show signs of sun damage in the form of dark spots.
How to Fix?
Did you know there is an FDA approved solution to treat aging in the hands?
This is where Radiesse comes into the play. Radiesse is the first and only dermal filler approved by the FDA to correct volume loss in the hands.
It helps reduce the prominence or tendons and veins. The results are smooth and natural looking.
What is the procedure like?
The radiesse injection in the hands is very similar to the injection in the face. The radiesse is mixed with lidocaine (numbing medicaine) which makes the procedure very comfortable. A cannula (blunt tip needed) is used to inject the product into the space in the hands.
The cannula makes the procedure safe and will not harm the delicate structure of the hands. The product is then massaged into the back of the hand. You are in and out of the office in less than an hour and the results are instant. The radiesse is approved to last for 1 year and the product will also help you to stimulate your own collegan production.
Just like all cosmetic procedures this will vary depending on the patient. The average amount of Radiesse used is 2-3 syringes split between the 2 hands. The cost for 1 syringe of Radiesse at Millefiori is $600.
