Do your hands give away your age?
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 vein and joint protrusion, thin crepey skin texture and often they’ve become flecked with brown spots from sun exposure.
Combating the aging hand syndrome takes more than hand cream (though that simple step does make a difference). The latest technology has given us a set of procedures that will have similar effects as those we have been able to accomplish for the face.
The Radiesse Hand Lift
The Radiesse hand lift is a new procedure that utilizes Radiesse to rejuvenate hands. Radiesse injections are frequently used on the face for long-lasting plumping and resculpting results. Radiesse is made out of calcium and phosphate ions, which are naturally found in human bone. Thus, Radiesse doesn’t need to be tested on patients before it’s injected: it’s 100% non-toxic. Radiesse is most commonly used to fill facial wrinkles, plump lips, and reduce undereye circles. Results last between two to five years. Considering all of the benefits of Radiesse, it makes sense that it’s the ideal injectable to use for hand rejuvenation.
In addition to injecting Radiesse into your hands, your specialist can also take even more steps to give you back your youthful hands. If you’re concerned about age spots, chemical peels and laser rejuvenation can be a fine option. These procedures can be done in conjuction with the Radiesse hand lift. Talk to your specialist to find out more about combining Radiesse with other anti-aging treatments.
The Radiesse Hand Lift Procedure
Unlike other forms of hand rejuvenation, the Radiesse hand lift does not require any sort of anesthesia. A Radiesse specialist will inject units of Radiesse into parts of your hand. The injections should take between ten and fifteen minutes. The injections will be slightly painful, and may result in minor swelling, redness, and bruising at the site of the injection. Afterwards, it’s recommended that you rest your hands for the next day or so as to not increase swelling
