Everyone knows that fillers can be used to minimize facial wrinkles and replenish lost volume, but can you also get filler injected into your hands to reduce wrinkles. When it comes to skin care the hands are often overlooked, but the skin on the hands also ages over time.
Aging of the hands
Sun damage and a decrease in the natural fat cushions, are the major contributors to the aging of the hands. The skin on the back of the hands is delicate and very thin, so when the fat cushions diminish, the tendons and veins become more visible.
Can you get filler injected in your hands to reduce wrinkles?
Yes, Radiesse is a dermal filler that is FDA cleared for correcting volume loss in the back of the hands. It is the first and only filler approved for this purpose. Radiesse is a popular dermal filler that consists of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). It is regularly used to volumize the skin in order to reduce wrinkles on the face.
Radiesse for hand augmentation
When used for hand augmentation, Radiesse is injected into the back of the hands, giving them a smooth, plump appearance. Replenishing volume in the hands also makes the veins and tendons less visible, so the hands appear more youthful.
How many treatments do I need?
It typically takes only one Radiesse treatment to achieve the desired hand enhancement.
When will I see results with Radiesse?
Radiesse will immediately add volume to the back of the hands.
