What happens to our hands as we age?
With time, we lose fat from the back of the hands which makes blood vessels appear larger and more visible. Our aging hands can be a difficult to cover with makeup or hide.
Collagen and elastin are also lost, making the skin feel paper-thin and less likely to bounce back when pinched. Chronic sun exposure worsens this aging process as it accelerates the loss of fat, collagen and elastin.
What can we do about your aging hands?
In less than one hour, we can turn back the clock on the hands you offer to the world!
RADIESSE® is the first and only FDA-approved product to correct volume loss in your hands. It is an injectable hydrogel that contains tiny particles of calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance that naturally occurs in human bones and teeth. These molecules form a lattice on which your innate collagen fibers grow to maintain the structure of your skin.
The procedure is relatively painless and the results are immediate. It provides natural-looking, smooth skin that can last up to 1 year.
How do we do it?
We first apply ice packs to the back of your hands before the procedure to reduce any discomfort. A small needle is used to inject RADIESSE® into 3 spots on the back of each hand. We then massage the areas for about 20 seconds and have you sit on your hands for a few minutes.
It’s that simple. In less than an hour, years will disappear from your hands.
Where else do we use RADIESSE®?
RADIESSE® is also great to fill out the hollows of your temples and plump your cheek bones. This will give you the results of a mini-lift that is virtually pain-free and far less expensive than traditional surgery…and one that lasts until your next birthday.
Treat yourself to an early holiday gift and you will face the festivities with a fresher new look.
