What is the best filler for my hands?

The hands are actually a common area that people tend to forget about when it comes to anti-aging procedures.  We’re so focused on the aging process of the face that we sometimes forget that the neck and hands are typically tell-tale signs of our age and sun damage over time.

so, back to our question,the answer is actually easier than you would think!  The only filler that we currently use to treat aging hands is Radiesse.  Radiesse is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. This filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of Radiesse continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting.

Unlike most of the other fillers, Radiesse is a calcium-based filler, rather than hyaluronic acid. It  is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. While you can expect immediate results from Radiesse, it is also stimulating your body to produce it’s natural collagen making improvements better over time.

Typically you only need one syringe to cover both hands, so for minimal cost, you get some massive improvements!  You may experience some tenderness and swelling immediately following the procedure, but the results are worth it.  Radiesse can also be used on areas of the face for added volume and smoothing of wrinkling-mainly in the cheeks and nasolabial folds.
