Frequently the focus of cosmetic improvement is the face, yet one of the most often neglected, age-telling features is in fact are the hands. Because the skin on the back the hands is extremely thin, loss of natural fat padding over time, will readily reveal wrinkles, skin laxity and worst of all – the underlying structures such as tendons and veins, making you look older than you really are. Recreation of those youthful, beautiful looking hands is no longer unreachable. Over the counter hand creams might make your hands feel softer but they are unlikely to have significant improvement on appearance. Hand rejuvenation or Hand Lift is often necessary to reverse the ageing process and turn back the clock.
The latest technology advancement has given us a new effective method that can restore volume and the healthy texture to our hands, without the need of surgery. Radiesse is a dense, yet malleable filler made of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres. It is FDA and EU approved and has many research papers backing its effectiveness in hand rejuvenation. It will lift the depressions between the tendons and the veins, reduce the bony and skeletal appearance, and leave your hands feeling softer and looking fuller.
Radiesse® is safe, effective and extremely popular both for its instant result and staying power. It will restore the volume loss immediately and yet also stimulate your own natural collagen production for long lasting effect. Your hands will look younger and healthier without the risks of open surgery and potential disruption of intrinsic hand function. Once injected into your skin, the smooth and spherical calcium hydroxylapatite particles in Radiesse® form a ‘scaffold’ which stimulates your own cells to produce collagen around the spheres. The gel carrier dissolves within a few months and over time, the calcium hydroxylapatite particles gradually break down and are completely metabolised by the body, leaving only the new collagen structure.
Radiesse® is a long lasting filler with effects proved to last up to 18 months in the hands. The procedure is virtually painless and takes less than 20 minutes to inject both hands. Local anaesthetics will be used to numb the skin prior treatment. Boluses of Radiesse® are then injected into the volume-deficient areas and massaged into place. Radiesse® maintains a soft, natural feel and takes on the characteristics of surrounding skin tissue. Once integrated into the skin, the calcium hydroxylapatite promotes new new collagen and elastin production.
Most people find that they can return to work the following day after this procedure.
