Restore your hands to a more youthful appearance.
As we age, the back of our hands start losing volume, and the skin begins to appear thin and dry. As the skin thins, the underlying veins and other structures then become more noticeable.
Radiesse Volumizing Filler is commonly used to correct these problems, restoring fuller, more youthful appearing hands. The procedure is very simple and quick, and relatively painless. Swelling can occur for a few days, but the results can last up to a year or more.
Placed beneath the skin on the back of the hands, Radiesse provides instant smoothing of wrinkles and long-lasting results up to 1-2 years in a 15-minute treatment session!
Step 1: Replenish Volume
The FDA recently approved Radiesse as the first and only injectable filler to correct for thinning, bony, skeletal appearing hands that have more bone and vein show. Radiesse instantly restores and re-plumps to give a more youthful appearance. Radiesse is a filler made of microspheres of natural calcium hydroxylapatite, which provides a scaffold to stimulate your own body’s production of collagen. The product has been used safely for facial rejuvenation for many years and is eventually metabolized out of the body.
Placed beneath the skin on the back of the hands, Radiesse provides instant smoothing of wrinkles and long-lasting results up to 1-2 years in a 15-minute treatment session! The result is smooth, beautiful, and natural.
Step 2: Brown Spot Removal
In an easy treatment with either a V-beam or IPL laser, 1-2 sessions can clear brown spots on the hands with very minimal downtime. These lasers target the discolorations on the hands so the skin appears even toned and not “spotty.”
Step 3: Maintenance and Nourish
The texture of the skin is important to maintain. Keeping the hands sun-protected, nourished, and moisturized is important to discourage the return of brown spots, reduce fine lines and crepy-ness, and also give the appearance of healthy thickened skin.
- Daily sunscreens for your hands should be reapplied throughout the day. We powder them up with Sunforgettable SPF 50 Powder for quick reapplication in the car.
- Nightly treatment with a product like Revision’s Lumiquin hand cream with licorice root extract, Vitamin C, and peptides brighten and reduce fine lines.
- Light Peels or the Clear & Brilliant Laser can maintain the suppleness for hand holding. Try SkinLab’s Boost Weekly Power Peel Pads.
