People typically focus on their faces when they think about getting a cosmetic procedure to turn back the clock. But one of the most obvious age-telling areas of the body happens to be the hands.
Signs of Aging Hands
Your hands are often the first area of your body to reveal your age. Since we use our hands regularly and they are exposed to the elements continuously, they are prone to premature aging more to than other areas of the body. While sunscreen and moisturizers can help, signs of aging hands present, including these:
- Loose skin on hands
- Less elastic skin on hands
- Veiny looking hands
- Crepey skin on hands
- Age spots on hands
You see, as we age, our hands lose volume and plumpness, not only making veins and joints protrude, but making skin on the hands look crepey. Fortunately, there is a cosmetic dermal filler to the rescue that can help your hands look amazingly younger.
Radiesse® Gets a High Five
On June 4th, 2015, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that it approved Radiesse® for hand augmentation. This injectable dermal filler helps people’s hands look less veiny, making them younger.
How Does Radiesse® for Hand Rejuvenation Works
This cosmetic filler provides a volumnizing effect that can help reduce the prominence of veins and tendons in the hands. Because it stimulates your own natural collagen, hands look more smooth, and the results can last a year, or even longer. Placed beneath the skin this skin instantly plumps up the skin on the hands, making them look more full and supple. Veins seem to lose their prominence as does tendons and joints in the hands.
This hand filler is comprised of calcium and phosphate ions, which are components found in our bones naturally. The water-based gel absorbed naturally into the body over time. For this cosmetic procedure, there is no general anesthesia involved, though you might get a local anesthetic to numb the injection site. The injections are quick and relatively painless, taking around 10 to 15 minutes tops.
