Dermal fillers have become a very popular tool for cosmetic enhancement. This is because they restore youthfulness instantly to the skin, decrease signs of aging, have no downtime and eliminate the recovery, risks, and pain associated with surgery. Although there is a very large selection of dermal fillers available on the market, Radiesse® is one of the most popular. The innovative formula is the result of new technology, research and the work of cosmetic experts. The formula was created to provide enhancement for the skin and to help fight the aging process. What makes this filler so unique is the effectiveness for both the face and hand rejuvenation. The filler adds more volume to skin impacted by the aging process. This decreases the impact of age on the hands and the lower face.
The hand rejuvenation filler is manufactured using microspheres of (CaHa) Calcium hydroxylapatite. The actual formulation results in a light gel adding instant volume to your skin once it has been injected. The volume of the product fills in lines and wrinkles on your hands in addition to smile and marionette lines on your face and wrinkles in your chin. What separates Radiesse® from the majority of other dermal fillers is the ability to trigger the production of additional collagen in your body. Collagen is incredibly important for the firmness, look, and feel of your skin. The bad news is your production significantly declines because of the aging process. The main reason your hands begin to look older, wrinkled, dull, or lax is because there is not enough collagen. This protein is necessary for healthy and vibrant skin.
Once you have had the hand rejuvenation treatment, your body will absorb the CaHa microspheres contained in the filler. Your increased collagen production will continue for numerous months. You will continue to see more and more benefits over time. This procedure is incredibly popular for treating the hands. Your hands are exposed to the potentially harmful rays of the sun, the environment and overuse nearly every single day. A lot of individuals start seeing an unattractive and aged look to their hands long before their face. The volume lost in your hands is effectively filled with the CaHA microspheres of the filler. This is what will reverse or decrease the appearance and bulges caused by the process of aging. This hand rejuvenation treatment is often referred to as a hand lift, and your results will last for 18-24 months.
This injectable dermal filler was created to plump folded and wrinkled areas on both your hands and face. As the filler starts to work, the collagen naturally produced under your skin is stimulated. You will see your results instantly. These results can last for as long as two full years. This is one of many reasons the treatment has become so popular. The most commonly requested areas for this dermal filler are the wrinkled portions of your hands and the skin around your mouth and nose. Only a tiny needle is required for your injections. All of the ingredients are non-allergenic, non-toxic, and compatible with the natural tissues of your body.
The ideal candidate for this treatment is between 35 and 60 years of age, and interested in plumping their skin and filling in lines and wrinkles. The procedure is just as effective for your face as it is for your hands. In addition to gel microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite, the filler also contains ions of calcium and phosphate. Both of these are natural to your body. Initially, the hand rejuvenation filler will add all of the volume you desire. Over time, your production of collagen will be stimulated by the CaHa. This enables you to produce more of your body’s natural filler. The carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen contained in the filler simulates the structure of your connective tissues. Even after your body has absorbed all of the CaHa, your natural collagen will remain.
The filler is injected into your hands using the same technique that has been used for facial fillers for years. This results in additional plumpness, volume, and hand rejuvenation to help replace what has been lost due to age. The loss of elastin and collagen as time passes results in thinner skin on your hands. This means your veins and tendons become much more obvious. These signs are associated with the aging process by most individuals. Radiesse® will add plumpness to the backs of your hands. Your veins and tendons will not be nearly as visible. The reason most individuals decide to have fillers for their hands is because they believe their hands give away their age.
The medical professional will do everything possible to ensure you remain comfortable during your entire treatment. The chances are good you will decide to have another procedure once the results of the dermal filler eventually begins to fade. The procedure will improve the look of your hands. This includes:
• Decreasing the appearance of tendons and veins
• Providing natural and smooth results
• Restoring the volume lost to age
• Providing your hands with a more youthful look
