Radiesse® for Hands
You may worry about unsightly lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging on your face, but have you noticed the back of your hands? Even with a youthful appearance, your age may be given away by the lack of fullness of your hands. At Associates in Plastic Surgery, we offer Radiesse, the first and only FDA-approved solution for hand augmentation.
Radiesse is a prescription-only dermal filler injection that instantly restores volume to the hands, providing smooth and natural-looking results for up to one year. Radiesse utilizes calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres, which adds volume and continues to work by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. Over time, Radiesse is absorbed, and the body metabolizes the CaHA, leaving only your natural collagen behind for lasting results. The treatment can last up to a year and touch-up appointments may be necessary to maintain your outstanding results.
The Radiesse sesssion generally lasts no longer than a half hour. Our experienced injectors will determine the best amount to restore and fill your aging hands. We may provide a numbing anesthetic or ice to improve your comfort during the injection session. Recovery is simple, although there are some common side effects, including bruising, swelling, itching, redness, or tenderness at the injection sites.
Rejuvenate and fill in your hands for up to a year with Radiesse at Associates in Plastic Surgery!
