Age Defying Hands with Radiesse
With facial rejuvenation at an all time high, gone are the days where your hands can give away your chronological age. Yes, thanks to the novel long lasting filler Radiesse, you can now have younger looking hands. The beauty of Radiesse filling of the hands is that results are immediate with no downtime, with results lasting up to one year.
Radiesse developed in Europe has a proven safety and effectivity record and has been used in the anti-aging and cosmetic medicine for the past decade. It is the only injectable filler approved for use in hand rejuvenation in Canada. Radiesse works by replacing lost volume over the back of the hands and further induces new collagen and elastin production with results lasting up to a year. This means that after your treatment your skin will be healthier and fuller thus rendering younger looking hands. So if your hands have a sunken appearance with overly visible bones, tendons and veins; then Radiesse could be an option for you. Your hand hiding and camouflage days are over.
The photos above were taken within a 20 minute interval thus illustrating the immediate volumization of the hands with decreased visibility of the bones, tendons and veins thereby rendering a more youthful appearance of the hand. For complete rejuvenation of the hands in this case, I would recommend use of IPL photorejuvenation for decreasing the discolouration of the hands with mild resurfacing tools like a chemical peel along with maintenance topical retinols and sunscreen.
We are truly fortunate to be living in an age with so many technologically advanced, scientifically proven anti-aging tools at our disposal to deliver safe and effective rejuvenating treatments to our patients. Your hands no longer have to give away your age; thanks to Radiesse.
