Most patients that are looking for age-defying solutions, solely focus on their face to portray a naturally younger looking appearance. However, you may not notice that your hands can give away more about your age than your face. As we age, we start to lose the young, full volume, and collagen our hands once had, which often results in frail and veiny characteristics. Thankfully, a new minimally invasive treatment, Radiesse®, has recently been FDA-approved for hand augmentation, and you can receive this treatment at Associates in Plastic Surgery in Virginia Beach, Kempsville, or Norfolk, VA!
Radiesse is the first and only filler for rejuvenating the back of the hands. This dermal filler is made up of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres that are held in a water-based gel. Radiesse helps improve the appearance of prominent veins, tendons, and bones by instantly restoring the volume and natural collagen production.
What to Expect with Radiesse® Treatment
Before your treatment, our expert injectors will help answer your questions and gather information about your medical history. There may be a topical anesthetic or ice used to numb the area(s) of injection. During your treatment, our provider injects Radiesse under the skin of the back of your hand, in several locations with a fine needle. Then the back of the hand is massaged, so the Radiesse formula is distributed evenly throughout the hand.
Results from Radiesse are noticeable instantly after treatment, and they can last up to a full year without retreatment! If you would like to maintain your results, touch-up treatments may be recommended annually for everyday youthful-looking hands.
At Associates in Plastic Surgery, we work diligently to improve all signs of aging, including the less-though-of-hands with Radiesse. So don’t wait long, contact us to schedule your Radiesse treatment today!
