What will they think of next! Men and women alike have noticed that the face isn’t the only thing that can show your age. So can your hands. As we age, the skin on the back of the hands becomes thinner. This makes it easier to see the tendons and veins which makes you look older.
Now with Radiesse, a filler that can last up to two years, your hands don’t have to show your age. In a very simple, minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure, Radiesse can be placed under the skin of the back of the hands. This better hides the tendons and veins to conceal your age.
While the procedure can produce some swelling and bruising, this is temporary. As you can see in the results above, Radiesse for hands provides an immediate result. In addition to covering the tendons and veins, a topical bleaching agent like hydroquinone can fade the age spots. This combination can greatly reduce the aging appearance of the hands.
Sure you can inject the filler with a needle but an even safer method is by using a cannula. A cannula looks like a needle at first but upon closer inspection, it has a blunt tip, not a sharp tip. After making the initial puncture in the skin with a regular needle, Radiesse is injected with the blunt cannula. This allows the Radiesse to be injected more evenly across the back of the hand. Additionally, you don’t have to worry about the blunt cannula poking through the wall of a vein in the hand and accidentally injecting Radiesse into the vein. With this injection technique, the doctor can evenly and smoothly inject Radiesse without a great deal of massaging afterwards, thus avoiding some of the bruising and swelling seen in preliminary studies.
