12 August Do your hands give your age away?
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 be 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.
Do you need a helping hand?
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 hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres, which stimulates the body to produce collagen, resulting in immediate and long-lasting volume augmentation.
Radiesse® became the first and only dermal filler approved by the FDA for the face and the hands.
“I wasn’t happy with the way my hands were looking — the veins were showing and the skin didn’t have its youthful vibrance, they have been bothering me for ages.” says Sally, 57, who had the procedure this week. “It filled in all those pockets and the veins are not noticeable now.”
Treatment for your hands with Radiesse®
Radiesse® is an injection treatment that is performed with a local anaesthetic to the area being treated.
The procedure takes 15 minutes and has minimal downtime.
The effect should be visible immediately after treatment, and continue over the following few weeks as your skin produces new collagen.
The results normally last between 12 and 18 months.
