Dermal filler for hands
Are your hands giving away your age? Radiesse® is a dermal filler, indicated for hand rejuvenation. Aging of the hands can be seen in a change in skin texture and loss of fat and muscle (volume loss).
Radiesse® stimulates your natural collagen production to help improve the structure of your skin. It is an ideal dermal filler for those who have hands that have a sunken appearance with visibly apparent bones, tendons and veins. Radiesse® dermal filler is a long lasting choice that adds volume to the hands making your hands appear younger looking.
Using a very fine needle, Radiesse® is injected into the skin of the hands to soften creases or folds; and to support areas of volume loss so they have a younger appearance. Local numbing medication may be used to maximize your comfort during the procedure. Most patients report only mild discomfort typically associated with the needle injections. You may experience a mild to moderate amount of stinging or aching sensation post injections.
To ensure an even correction, your practitioner will massage the area treated, which may cause a temporary, minimal to moderate amount of redness to your skin.
Radiesse® dermal filler is a long lasting choice that adds volume, making your hands appear younger and rejuvenated instantly. Results can last up to 12 months.
Bruising at the site of injection is a commonly reported side effect. To minimize your risk of bruising, be sure to inform your practitioner if you are taking any blood thinners such as ibuprofen, aspirin or herbal remedies – prior to your treatment.
Temporary minimal to moderate swelling can be expected. Swelling can persist for 2-3 weeks in some patients and may begin 1-2 weeks after treatment. Warm packs and hand elevation can help reduce swelling.
Although rare, unevenness or firmness in the area of injection and infection (with any injection) are possible risk factors.
