We at Maryland Dermatology, Laser, Skin & Vein are proud to announce that each of our dermatologists is now an officially certified Radiesse hand injector. Clinical trials have shown that Radiesse is safe and effective for volume restoration in hands with thinning skin and wrinkles. If this describes your hands, you may be a good candidate for FDA-cleared Radiesse hand restoration!
Why Choose Radiesse for the Hands?
Our board-certified dermatologists have years of experience injecting Radiesse as well as other fillers. Hand rejuvenation has become increasingly popular, as many people realize that the hands are one of the biggest “tell zones” for revealing a person’s true age. Hands can be difficult to keep protected from the sun, and they show age very quickly. Radiesse can help to volumize and plump thinning skin, which serves a dual purpose of reducing the appearance of wrinkles and hiding prominent veins.
Radiesse’s calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres provide instant volume and stimulate the body to produce more natural collagen. Collagen is vital for skin volume and elasticity, but we produce less as we age. Radiesse helps the skin to produce more collagen, providing natural results that improve over time and last for a year or more.
The Radiesse Procedure
After topical numbing, Radiesse mixed with lidocaine is injected into hollowed areas of the hands. One can return to daily activities immediately following the procedure. Side effects can include swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site, lasting generally from one to seven days. Ice packs can help.
Total Hand Rejuvenation with Radiesse and Laser/IPL
At MDLSV, we have many devices that can improve the appearance of brown sunspots on the hands; IPL (intense pulsed light), Picosure focused lens array, Fraxel 1927, and other laser treatments. Popular, safe, and with proven results, these laser procedures can be used effectively together with Radiesse and other fillers for a comprehensive treatment that turns back time on the hands.
