What is RADIESSE® Hand Rejuvenation?
RADIESSE® Hands is the only FDA-approved dermal filler to restore volume to the backs of the hands. RADIESSE® is a synthetic version of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), which is a natural compound found in the body. Because it is non-animal based and free from animal protein, it is a safe cosmetic treatment that does not require allergy testing. RADIESSE® Hands works by stimulating natural collagen production to restore fullness to the backs of the hands.
RADIESSE® Hands is a dermal filler that is injected into the skin and has natural-looking results that can last up to a year with a single treatment.
Am I a Candidate for RADIESSE® Hands?
Most patients who are in good health and would like to improve signs of aging in the backs of their hands are candidates for RADIESSE® Hands. These signs include volume loss that creates hollows and increases the visibility of veins and tendons. Although women in their 40s and 50s are the most typical candidate for RADIESSE® Hands, it is growing in popularity with younger women as they take advantage of the treatment to prepare for engagement and wedding photos.
What to Expect During Treatment
During your initial consultation, Dr. Galitzin will evaluate your hands and skin to determine if you are a candidate for RADIESSE® Hands. Since IPL laser rejuvenation is included, he can also explain how this laser treatment can correct brown spots on the backs of your hands. Dr. Galitzin performs RADIESSE® Hand Rejuvenation in our office by injecting the filler into the backs of the hands in a procedure that takes about 30 minutes. The procedure is relatively painless; however, you may experience some redness, swelling, tenderness, or itching at the injection site. These should subside within a few days. You can return to your normal activities right away, though you should avoid any strenuous activities involving your hands for a day or so.
