Age is just a number – but that doesn’t mean you want everyone to know exactly how old you really are. That’s why you highlight your hair, keep wrinkles at bay with facials and fillers, and practice Pilates to keep yourself trim and toned. But no matter how much time and money you spend on maintaining your youthful appearance, there’s still one body part that always betrays your age: your hands.
Why your hands look so old
As you get older, your skin becomes thinner, thanks in part to a decreased production of skin-firming collagen and a lower generation rate of new skin cells. In addition, UV exposure, environmental pollutants, and harsh soaps all cause your skin to lose elasticity. While these changes to your skin occur all over your body, it’s perhaps most noticeable on the backs of your hands. They become wrinkled and veiny. Your bones and tendons start to protrude. And until recently, there wasn’t much you could do about it.
Restore your hands with Radiesse
At Siti Med Spa in San Diego, we’re happy to offer hand rejuvenation with Radiesse. The first and only FDA-approved dermal filler for treating aging hands, Radiesse restores the volume you’ve lost over time. By plumping up your hands from beneath the skin, wrinkles and lines are smoothed away. Radiesse also helps to camouflage those bulging veins and tendons, hiding those flaws in your hands that add years to your appearance.
Simple procedure, lasting results
Radiesse is a 100% non-toxic gel, designed to fill out those loose, saggy sections of skin, as well as to stimulate your own natural collagen production. With only a few quick injections performed in our office in Banker’s Hill, you’ll enjoy immediate results that last for up to a year. And while the difference is noticeable, it’s also subtle – no one will ever know you’ve had a “hand lift.”
The whole procedure generally takes around fifteen minutes; there’s no anesthesia involved, and no recovery time. You may feel some discomfort or tenderness at the site of the injection, and your hands may appear a little swollen. But this should subside within a few days.
We can also help with full hand rejuvenation
While Radiesse can add much-needed volume to eliminate hand wrinkles, your hands may be exhibiting other signs of aging, such as dark spots or uneven skin tone. Fortunately, we offer solutions for all your hand rejuvenation needs. Call to ask us about laser skin resurfacing and our professional skin care products.
