Before and After Radiesse Treatment for the Hands

Another popular application for Radiesse is for the treatment of aging hands. As we age, it is normal to lose volume in the back of the hands. With volume loss, the tendons and veins become more prominent. Some people find their hands age faster than others due to factors such as genetics, sun exposure, health, frequent use of chemicals, smoking, and alcohol abuse.


Now there is a fast and easy solution to turn back time for aging hands! Radiesse injections can restore the lost volume and at the same time stimulate new collagen production. Radiesse is a gel that has an active ingredient of calcium hydroxylapatite (CAHA), it is injected with lidocaine to reduce discomfort at the injection site.


Dr. Miguel Delgado, M.D. states that many of his facelift patients feel their hands give away their age. Now that their face is refreshed and they are feeling younger, they are dismayed to see how their hands betray their face! With Radiesse, they can have immediate replenishment of volume loss with no allergy testing necessary. The results can be very long lasting; however, due to lifestyle, skin type, and muscle activity, results can vary.

Along with your Radiesse treatments, you can receive skin analysis from our Aesthetic RN, Ariel Kirk, who will address such issues as sun damage and those aging brown spots.
