To restore volume to the hands, you can use Radiesse dermal fillers. This will help to make your hands appear more youthful.
The dermal filler is made up of calcium hydroxyapatite, which is a naturally occurring substance. This has a lifting capacity, so it is often used to restore volume in certain areas of the body, such as the hands.
You will be a suitable candidate for this procedure if you are wishing to improve the aesthetic appearance of your hands.
You will not be suitable if you are currently pregnant or breastfeeding. You will also not be eligible if you have a bleeding disorder, have a history of anaphylaxis or allergies to lidocaine or similar medicines.
Prior to having Rediesse hand rejuvenation, you will meet with a surgeon who will ensure you are a suitable candidate for this procedure.
The Radiesse hand rejuvenation procedure is relatively painless and quick, taking around 30 minutes to complete.
Before beginning the injections, the Radiesse is mixed with an anaesthetic which will numb the nerve endings. The Radiesse is then injected into the hands and massaged into the necessary areas.
You may need to have a touch-up session two to four weeks after the procedure to ensure you achieve the desired results.
As this is a non-surgical procedure, there is little to no recovery time. You may notice some redness, swelling or bruising which should go away after a few days.
You will be able to notice the results of the injections immediately.
You should minimise strenuous physical activity for 24 hours following the injections. You should also avoid excess sun and heat exposure for the first 24 hours or until any redness and swelling has subsided.
Results can last up to one to two years.
Radiesse hand rejuvenation is a dermal filler which can be used to restore volume to hands. Your hands are often the first part of the body which will show signs of ageing.
Radiesse hand rejuvenation involves injections into the hands which will restore thickness to the skin, leaving you with hands that appear more youthful.
The procedure will take around 30 minutes.
The Radiesse is mixed with an anaesthetic prior to being injected, which will help to numb the nerve endings. You may feel a slight pinch when you get the injections.
As this is a non-surgical procedure, you should experience very little recovery period.
You may notice some redness, bruising or swelling, which is normal and will subside after a few days.
You will need to avoid any exercise, as well as excess sun and heat exposure for the first 24 hours.
You will be able to notice the results immediately. However, you may have swelling and the immediate results may not be the final results.
As the swelling goes down following the procedure, you may notice you do not have the results you want. If this is the case, you may wish to undergo another round of treatment two to four weeks later.
