Restore Lost Volume in Your Hands with Radiesse

We live in times when everyone talks about aging gracefully with an appropriate diet schedule and moderate exercise routine. Whatever said and done, hands often give away the age of a woman, next to gray hair and facial wrinkles. When you are on an aesthetic regimen to look good and feel young, the next logical step for you to work on would be your hands.

You begin to lose fat naturally in your hands as you age, making your veins and bones jut out. Would you like to put out your thin, wrinkled hands giving off your age? Absolutely not! You can turn back the hands of time with Radiesse and be a classic example of Audrey Hepburn’s quote, “And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows!”

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is opaque dermal filler composed of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (a component of medical products for many years) microspheres suspended in a water-based gel carrier. It is injected below the surface of the skin and used to restore volume loss in the back of your hands; it smoothens out visible veins and tendons.

Why Radiesse?

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have approved as clinically proven, safe and effective this sub-dermal gel implant for hand augmentation.

Radiesse is the first and the only injectable named by the FDA for hand rejuvenation with minimal side effects. It requires typically 1-2 injections to get those amazing results. It is painless; there is no downtime and the results are instant for you to see.

The Radiesse difference

Once injected, Radiesse replenishes lost volume right away and continues to work by stimulating your body to produce its own collagen. The gel gets absorbed leaving behind natural collagen, making your hands look soft and smooth the way you would love to. The outcome lasts for a year or even more.

Talk to your doctor before the procedure

Discuss with your aesthetic medical practitioner if Radiesse is the right option for you. Once agreed upon, keep your doctor in the know of any blood thinners or medicines that you might be taking, and any injuries or disabilities of your hand or any skin treatments undergone.

Common risks

You may experience mild to moderate injection-related reactions such as swelling, redness, pain and bruising that could last a week; rest assured that they require no treatment.

Pregnant or breastfeeding women should not use Radiesse. If you have a history of allergies or bleeding disorders, you should not opt for Radiesse. The risk for infection is there as it is common for all procedures involving a shot through the skin. Do not go in for the procedure if you have an infection that has not healed yet.

You may experience slight difficulty in performing everyday tasks soon after the procedure, and that too will ease off soon. Formation of lumps in the back of the hand may be common. You may have to stay away from strenuous activity with your hands until the bumps disappear. Make sure you do not expose the treated hand to excessive sun or heat for about 24 hours post treatment.
