Hands are often the first place where sun damage and aging is noticeable.
Even if you take exceptional care of your hands with creams and lotions and wear rubber gloves to protect them from harsh soaps and chemicals, your hands will eventually show visible signs of aging and are often the first place where sun damage and aging is noticeable. It also happens to be the most neglected part of an anti-aging regimen. They say that when you take care of your facial rejuvenation, it’s often your hands that give away your age.
The skin on the back of your hands is very delicate, and there is only a thin layer of fat under the skin. As you age and lose collagen and elastin fibers, your hands may appear to flatten, wrinkle and deflate. Often, your hands end up looking fragile, veined, wrinkled, and papery.
Sun damage contributes to the aging process that makes bones, knuckles, and veins appear prominent. Brown spots or liver spots may speckle your hands from years of sun exposure giving hands a mottled, spotted appearance. To prevent further damage, be sure to cover the tops of your hands with sunscreen everyday, before and after any rejuvenating treatment.
Today, skin specialists can restore a youthful, soft look to your hands by the use of Radiesse hand injections. While Radiesse is most often used for facial rejuvenation to restore lost facial volume caused by aging, this affordable, long-lasting procedure is also an excellent non-surgical way to reduce the signs of aging by adding volume to the back of your hands for a more youthful appearance..
This safe and affordable filler reduces the appearance of veins, tendons or joints, so your hands look and feel youthful and supple. Best of all, Radiesse is known to stimulate your body’s own natural collagen production, which means your results will only get better over time.
A very thin needle filled with Radiesse filler for hands is injected under the skin by Certified Injection Specialists. After the procedure, you will see immediate results when your new Radiesse hands plump up in front of your eyes with a healthy, natural-looking volume. After injections with Radiesse, hands will maintain a smooth, youthful appearance for one to two years on average.
Many people who choose Radiesse hand rejuvenation treatments also perfect the look of their hands by adding an IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment.
An IPL treatment is unlike a laser treatment that uses only one source of light. Instead, IPL uses many light sources to remove hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, age spots and broken capillaries for young-looking, spot-free hands.
No matter how smooth and wrinkle-free your face might be, papery, veiny, spotted hands will give away your true age. Don’t hide your hands because they look old, wrinkled, spotted or unattractive. Instead, consider the many benefits of non-surgical Radiesse hand rejuvenation treatments combined with an IPL procedure, so your hands are as beautiful and youthful as the rest of you.« Back to Articles & Tips
