When it comes to dermal fillers, Radiesse is a filler that restores a youthful appearance with a more long-term result than many dermal fillers. It consists of calcium-based microspheres that promote the growth of collagen, while also adding immediate volume. As time passes, the filler breaks down and is safely processed by the body. This filler provides the volumizing and rejuvenating effects without the risks associated with surgery.
Radiesse Can Restore Your Youthful Hands
While Radiesse is known first and foremost for rejuvenating the face, it can also be used on aging hands. When expertly injected into the hands, it can obscure prominent veins and restore volume to the hand skin. Such hand rejuvenation can also be combined with IPL rejuvenation, treating age spots along with restoring volume.
Benefits of Radiesse:
For most patients, the benefits of Radiesse last between one and two years, which is substantially longer than other fillers. In general, the benefits of this filler act to:
- Fill in acne scars
- Smooth away nasolabial folds
- Minimize marionette and smile lines
- Enhance the nose, cheeks, chin and lips
- Diminish facial wrinkles
Are You a Candidate for Radiesse?
Radiesse is the perfect dermal filler for patients who wish to restore volume on both their face and hands. In order to undergo Radiesse, these are the following attributes of an ideal patient:
- 35 to 60 years of age
- Mild to moderate folds, lines, and wrinkles
- Desire to enhance and define facial features
- Desire to smooth and plump aging hands
While Radiesse is not appropriate for those with advanced signs of aging, Dr. Montilla can still provide treatment to such candidates, including a facelift, brow lift, or other surgical procedure that will restore a youthful appearance.
