When it comes to anti-aging skincare, you make sure you take good care of your face and neck. But many people don’t show your hands the same kind of TLC – and when it comes to giving away your real age, your hands can be your biggest culprits.
Your hands have similar skin concerns as your face, meaning it’s often exposed to the sun, in constant use, and is thinner than in other areas of your body. That means it’s prone to showing signs of aging faster.
If you haven’t been regularly moisturizing your hands or have naturally thin hands, you may have noticed that your hands could be looking older than the rest of your body.
To help counteract aging symptoms on your hands, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Aycock is proud to offer Radiesse treatments for more youthful-looking hands. Radiesse is a dermal filler that’s often used to add volume to key areas of the face; however, it’s also FDA-approved to add fullness to the hands.
Here’s how it works:
- When Radiesse is injected within the hands, the volumization effect helps plump up the thin skin. This assists with the smoothing of wrinkles and fine lines, leading to younger-looking hands.
- Since Radiesse injections add more volume, it helps minimize the appearance of bony and veiny hands, which are often the hallmarks of aging.
- Radiesse contains hyaluronic acid (HA), which is renowned for its ability to retain up to 10x water per molecule. That means the skin of the hands look plumper and more moisturized, which helps counteract most aging symptoms.
Most patients only need one Radiesse session to see their ideal results. These results can last for a year or more, making it a great solution for patients who want to show their hands some love.
