Our hands are an important part of the way we communicate and present ourselves. Beautiful hands give us the confidence to express ourselves in any situation. However, hands are often the first place to show the signs of ageing and can become a frequently underrated problem area not only in thin and athletic women: The skin on our hands is thinner than that on our face and is constantly exposed to the sun and its photo-damaging effects, making it more sensitive to the ageing process. Over time, the fatty tissue beneath the skin on our hands becomes thinner. Veins and tendons become more visible and the skin loses volume. With growing options for facial aesthetics, the hands can seem noticeably older than the rest of the body.
How do you rate your hands?
This scientific scale shows the ageing process of our hands (from 0 = no volume loss to 4 = very severe volume loss).
Radiesse® for volume correction in the hands
Radiesse® received approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for hand augmentation to correct volume loss in the back of the hands. The FDA is responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy and security of among other things medical devices, such as Radiesse®, and is valid for the US market and countries that follow the FDA approval. Please ask your practitioner for further information.
If you feel that your hands don’t match your overall appearance, it may be time to do something about it. Radiesse® restores volume and adds structure to the skin. The unique, innovative and safe gel formula contains calcium microspheres (CaHA) which stimulate the body to produce collagen, resulting in immediate and long-lasting volume augmentation. With the hand approval, Radiesse® became the first and only dermal filler approved by the FDA for the face and the hands.
