Can You Get Filler Injected In Your Hands To Reduce Wrinkles?

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.

Can wrinkles go away?

Can wrinkles go away?

Nobody wants wrinkles, but unfortunately, they are a natural consequence of aging. If you are bothered by the fact that you have wrinkles, and creams and serums don’t seem to help, you may be wondering if wrinkles can go away.

Can wrinkles go away?

Yes, it is possible to minimize or completely remove wrinkles with a facelift. However, if surgery is not an option for you, there are also effective non-surgical options that can erase those wrinkles for you, and restore a refreshed, youthful appearance.

Non-surgical wrinkle treatments

  • Laser skin resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing uses laser energy to rejuvenate the skin, and get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. Laser therapy can also treat skin irregularities such as discoloration and acne scars. Laser skin resurfacing removes old skin cells and regenerates collagen and new skin cells, to reveal younger, smoother skin.

  • Chemical peels

Chemical peels are another effective way to minimize the appearance of wrinkles. Treatment involves the use of a chemical solution that is applied to the skin, in order to strip away the topmost layers. The skin that replaces the old, dead skin cells is smoother, and more youthful.

  • Radiofrequency (RF) treatments

RF treatments such as ThermiSmooth can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles. RF energy deep heats the tissue in the dermal layer of the skin, and this triggers the production of new collagen and elastin. The loss of collagen and elastin over time causes the skin to sag, leading to the formation of lines and wrinkles. Rebuilding collagen and elastin makes the skin firm and plump once again, so wrinkles are much less visible.

Is There a Non-Surgical Neck lift for Tighter Skin?

Is There a Non-Surgical Neck lift for Tighter Skin?

Are you bothered by loose neck skin? A neck lift can tighten loose skin and give you a fresher look. Although a surgical neck lift is considered the gold standard for rejuvenating the neck, not everyone wants to undergo surgery. But is there a non-surgical neck lift for tighter skin.

As you age, the skin on the jawline and neck starts to sag, but there are times when the laxity is not that significant to require surgery. In these cases, a non-surgical neck lift can help.

Is There a Non-Surgical Neck lift for Tighter Skin?
Yes there is a non-surgical neck lift for tighter skin and it’s called the Profound Lift. Profound is a skin tightening treatment that uses clinically proven radiofrequency (RF) technology to contour the face and neck.

How Profound works
Profound penetrates below the surface of the skin and targets the dermal layer. It heats the tissues to stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are vital proteins in the skin that help it remain tight and elastic. The body produces less of these proteins over time, and this contributes to skin laxity. Since Profound helps to build collagen and elastin, it can smooth and tighten aging skin, which makes it a very effective treatment for loose skin on the neck.

Profound is a quick in-office procedure that takes about 45 minutes to complete. It typically takes just one treatment to achieve optimal results. Most patients report seeing improvements about 6-8 weeks after treatment.

How does the ExpresS-Lift differ from a traditional facelift?

Are you thinking about a facelift, but looking for a procedure with more natural results and less downtime? You may want to consider the Express-Lift. It will leave you looking refreshed and youthful, and people may not notice you’ve had surgery at all. But how does the Express-Lift differ from a traditional facelift.

Age, gravity, stress, and the environment, all contribute to facial aging. Before you know it deep creases, folds, and wrinkles start to show up on your face. The Express Lift can rejuvenate your facial features. It is especially beneficial for patients in their mid-40’s who would like to improve their appearance, so they look better as they age.

The Express-Lift Facelift
The Express-Lift Facelift can correct a slack jawline, as well as sagging in the midface and neck. The procedure will improve the appearance of your jowls, jawline, chin, and neck.

How the Express-Lift differs from a traditional facelift.

  • Results are subtle and more natural. A natural-looking correction of facial features is achieved with the Express-lift, by lifting the fascia in a more vertical direction.
  • Performed using local anesthesia. The traditional facelift is typically done under general anesthesia.
  • Incisions are shorter when compared to the traditional facelift; therefore the resulting scars are not noticeable.
  • Fewer complications.
  • Recovery time is shorter because there is less bruising and swelling. Swelling often resolves within 4-7 days.

If you live in or around Guilford, CT, contact Dr. Robert Langdon Connecticut, of the Langdon Center for Laser & Cosmetic Surgery. The Express-Lift is a signature procedure at Langdon Center, and there are testimonials of patients that have been very happy with their results.

How Botox can boost elastin in your face

Botox is an effective anti-aging treatment, and is probably the most common cosmetic treatment in the US. We know that botox can reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles across the forehead, and at the corner of the eyes, but can it also improve the elasticity of the skin. Recent studies suggest that it can. So let’s find out just how botox can boost the elastin in your face.

The findings of a recent study out of Canada, suggest that botox may have long-term benefits for the skin. The research which was carried out by Dr. James P. Bonaparte (University of Ottawa), and Dr. David Ellis (University of Toronto), indicate that botox positively affects elasticity. The researchers noted that botox positively impacts both the pliability and elasticity (ability to recoil) of the skin.

The 43 women who completed the study were all given botox injections in the upper face. None of them had previously received botox injections. All the women had their skin assessed before and after the botox injections, using a device known as a ‘Cutometer.’  The Cutometer is used by plastic surgeons to measure changes in skin elasticity.

At the expiration of the 4 month study, all the women experienced an increase in the elasticity of their skin, which made their skin appear more youthful. The period of the changes in skin elasticity paralleled the duration of the effect of botox.  The study was published in the JAMA Facial and Plastic Surgery, and can be viewed online at http://archfaci.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=2293061.

Botox injections are available from Cobb Wellness & Aesthetics, Roswell, GA. If you are interested in learning more about how botox can boost skin elasticity, call (770) 649-0094, and schedule a consultation with Dr. Linda Kelley.
