In June of 2015 Radiesse Injections were FDA approved to add volume into the hands thus making hands look younger. Dr. Christine Sullivan was the first physician in central Ohio trained in the art of Radiesse hand rejuvenation.
Number of Treatments
1 treatment every 12-18 months
Slight swelling for 1-2 days
You could experience mild temporary swelling, redness, itching or stiffness of your hands while performing daily activities.
With the FDA approval of Radiesse for the rejuvenation of the hand, we now have an innovative solution for individuals who have volume loss and increased visibility of the veins and tendons in the hand. Radiesse will add volume to the hands making them appear more youthful.
Another tell tale sign of aging is pigmented lesions or “age spots” on the hand. With the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), these spots are lessened or completely resolved.
Check out this video of Dr. Chris giving Radiesse injections to a patient while we discuss the process and what to expect:
How can I prevent my hands from looking old?
Generally, a healthier lifestyle which indicates a good diet and regular exercise can be helpful. A no smoking policy should also be enforced to ensure more youthful hands. Be sure to use a good quality sunscreen on your hands every day. Often times people think that sunscreen on the backs of the hands is not necessary in the winter; it should be noted that sun exposure to the backs of the hand at any time will cause aging.
Is injecting Radiesse to the hands painful?
The Radiesse filler used for aging hands contains a numbing agent which makes the treatment very tolerable. In most cases, there is little to no down time following the procedure.
