In this day and age, the idea of being able to assume the real age of women, and men, by looking at their hands doesn’t necessarily apply anymore. More options are available today than ever before for people seeking treatment for aging hands that are starting to show sunspots and lose volume.
Medical-grade products that reduce the appearance of sunspots are widely available in specialized doctor’s offices and medical spas. Laser treatments by your plastic surgeon are also definite go-to’s to that help turn back the hands of time.
Now, there’s a long awaited addition to the types of non-surgical treatments available to improve the look of your hands. Radiesse has finally been approved by the FDA as the first injectable filler for hands. You may already be familiar with Radiesse as a filler used for your face, but this injectable is now officially able to work double duty for the face and back of the hands. The milky, opaque substance is ideal for concealing veins and restoring lost volume to the hands. The benefits of just one treatment can last for up to two years!
If your hands boast the appearance of a teenager’s, then there are certainly other types of fillers available to plump your lips, volumize and lift your cheeks, and fill the creases around your mouth.
Radiesse is used to plump lips, smooth moderate to severe facial lines around the lower nose and mouth, known as nasolabial folds, decrease frown lines, enhance the cheeks, and aids in facial contouring. Radiesse also stimulates collagen production in the areas of injection. It typically lasts 1-2 years and is made of calcium hydroxyl-lapatitie, which is a synthetic form of material that is founds in our bones and teeth.
Restylane Silk is a hyaluronic acid-based filler that adds volume to the lips and fills and corrects the lines on the upper lip.
Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma are dermal fillers that offer long-lasting results as well. Juvederm is commonly used to treat facial lines and plump the lips. Both Juvederm and Voluma lift and add volume to the cheeks. Voluma has been specifically made to treat the cheek area. Since both of these products are a gel, they offer a more natural look and feel to the skin once they’ve been injected. The results of Juvederm and Voluma last for one year or more. Patients and their doctor can determine which formula is right for them based on the desired results.
