Our hands are an often overlooked but very visible area of skin that can really show age. Even people who are diligent about sunblock and protecting their face and skin from the sun can have trouble protecting the hands. They are constantly exposed and even if you apply sunblock, it can disappear the first time you wash your hands. The skin on our hands also tends to be thinner than skin in other areas, which makes it more prone to wrinkling and volume loss.
Up until recently, there weren’t many treatment options available that could help minimize these signs of aging on the hands. You may have been told to moisturize constantly and be diligent about sunblock or wearing gloves when working outdoors, such as in the garden. Today there are dermal fillers that provide very good results when used on the hands. One of the most impressive is Radiesse.
Radiesse is a little bit different from other fillers because it simultaneously lifts, plumps, and fills skin that has lost volume while also stimulating collagen production for long-lasting, natural results. Collagen improves skin tone, texture, and elasticity which can help improve the appearance of crepey skin, including skin on the hands. It’s currently the only FDA-approved dermal filler for use on the hands.
Short- and Long-Term Results With Radiesse
We love to use Radiesse for hands because it provides both immediate and long-term results. Immediately after treatment, volume is restored and wrinkles smoothed out. As Radiesse gets absorbed into the skin cells, it prompts the cells to start producing collagen which “de-ages” the skin to give it a plumper, more youthful appearance. Radiesse continues to stimulate this production for approximately 12 weeks, but the results can last up to 18 months.
