    Am I a candidate for aging hands therapy?

    Do your hands need a beauty makeover? Perhaps you’ve been investing in chemical peels, or laser and injectable treatments to rejuvenate your face and neck. Now the aged look of your hands is glaringly obvious to you because your face and neck are looking so revived and fresh.

    You are a great candidate for aging hands treatment with RADIESSE®. This is an easy solution for filling hollows to revive your aging hands. However, if you also have an issue with lots of sunspots (hyperpigmentation) on your hands, then you probably want to consider combining your non-surgical injectable hand treatments with laser phototherapy treatments. The combination fully rejuvenates the appearance of your aging hands.

    About RADIESSE® for aging hands therapy

    Loss of volume and elasticity characterizes older hands as hollowed, aged, wrinkled, and spotted. Your hands may develop this look as early as in your mid-40’s. For others, this effect may not be prominent until age 60 or so.

    RADIESSE® is the preferred filler when significant volumization and lasting results are desired. This is often the case in the cheek or midface areas as well as in the hands.
