Austin hand rejuvenation is important for many people because the only thing that gives away their true age is their hands. Since the hands are used on a daily basis for a wide variety of tasks, they tend to take the brunt of damage and it’s easy for the skin to become dry and dehydrated. As we age, this increases the chances of hands appearing wrinkled and shriveled. Furthermore, since our body’s tissues naturally lose volume as we age, the skin tends to lose elasticity and it is easier to see tendons, bones and veins. This can make the hands look thin and frail, and make a person look significantly older than they really are.
So many non-surgical cosmetic treatments tend to focus on reversing the signs of aging on the face, neck and chest, but the hands are often neglected despite being a major indicator of age. At Aesthetica Med Spa we have a solution; Radiesse injections to add volume to the back of the hands.
WHAT IS RADIESSE?
Radiesse is a soft tissue filler designed to add volume and smooth wrinkles. Radiesse injections are popular because the filler is designed to stay exactly where is it injected rather than moving around, making it possible to add volume to very specific areas. We’ve administered Radiesse in Austin for many years and has mainly been used to smooth facial wrinkles, however, we now know that this type of soft tissue filler is really effective when injected into the hands.
WHY IS RADIESSE GOOD FOR FIGHTING AGING HANDS?
Since Radiesse stays exactly where is it is injected, it is highly successful in masking the appearance of tendons, veins and bones in the back of the hands. With just one treatment, patients can enjoy younger-looking hands for up to one year before needing repeat injections.
IS RADIESSE SAFE FOR USE IN THE HANDS?
The FDA has recently approved Radiesse injections as safe to use as an Austin hand rejuvenation product. In clinical trials conducted into the use of Radiesse in hands, the majority of subjects tested noticed significant improvements in the appearance of their hands three months after treatment.
WHAT IS A RADIESSE HAND REJUVENATION TREATMENT LIKE?
The treatment is very similar to that of dermal fillers and usually takes less than 30 minutes with minimal discomfort. If you’re feeling particularly worried about potential pain, we can apply a topical numbing cream to prevent discomfort. When the Radiesse injections are finished, you’ll notice a little swelling and redness on the treated areas for up to 24 hours, but there is no need to avoid continuing with your usual daily routine.
As with any other soft tissue filler treatments, every patient is different and the amount of filler used and exact injection areas will vary from one person to the next. Your physician will examine your hands first and talk with you in detail about your desired results before beginning the procedure to ensure each injection is performed perfectly.
IS RADIESSE HAND REJUVENATION REALLY RIGHT FOR ME?
It is important to note that Radiesse can only add volume to tissues beneath the skin and cannot do anything to tackle age spots which are another common indicator of age. However, it can successfully smooth skin and mask tendons. If you’re unsure whether Radiesse is the right treatment for you, you should book a free consultation with one of our physicians to discuss the results you are wanting to achieve. Our experts will be able to advise whether Radiesse will successfully reduce the signs of aging on your hands and if it is the ideal treatment for you.
