How Long Can RADIESSE® Last in the Hands?
RADIESSE is a popular dermal filler known for smoothing out mild to moderate fine lines and facial wrinkles. But did you know that RADIESSE can also be used for complete hand rejuvenation? Plastic surgeons now use this revolutionary treatment to fill out hands that have lost volume over time due to age, genetics, and environmental factors like sun exposure.
While RADIESSE is known to last longer than other traditional dermal fillers (1 – 2 years), factors like skin elasticity may impact this timeline. It's best to visit a board-certified plastic surgeon who can create a personalized treatment plan for you. Dr. Phillip Dauwe is excited to help patients all over Dallas, TX enjoy their RADIESSE results. Call Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery for your consultation.
What causes loss of volume in the hands?
As we age, there are many factors that cause our hands to form creases and wrinkles. Collagen production slows down over time, which can lead to volume loss. Our skin becomes less elastic and doesn't bounce back like it once did. Sun damage is also a major contributor to the aging process. Hands are constantly exposed to the elements, so it's no surprise that this also plays a role in hand volume.
Hands allow us to express ourselves and showcase how we feel. It's no wonder that so many people are conscious about how their hands appear to themselves and others. Luckily, with proper treatment and care, you can improve the appearance of your hands in just one session with Dr. Dauwe.
How can I rejuvenate my hands with RADIESSE?
RADIESSE is a unique dermal filler made of calcium hydroxyapatite material in a flexible gel. This dermal filler is often recommended for replacing lost volume in the skin surrounding the nose and mouth to create a more youthful-looking complexion. Now, RADIESSE is a popular solution for hand rejuvenation.
RADIESSE filler can be used to replace lost volume in the hands, making them look smoother and more youthful. When injected into the back of your hand, RADIESSE restores contour and elasticity without looking obvious or overstated. This dermal filler works well on both men and women who are looking for subtle but noticeable results.
How long does RADIESSE filler last?
RADIESSE is a quick and simple procedure when performed in our Dallas clinic. Dr. Dauwe can review the details of treatment, including risks and benefits, during your initial consultation. When administered into the back of your hand, RADIESSE is designed to last for 1 – 2 years. We can give you a more accurate timeline based on your age, skin elasticity, and other factors. Our team can let you know when to return for follow-up treatments.
How can I make results last even longer?
RADIESSE in the hands is temporary, but there are ways for patients to enjoy their results as long as possible. Protect your hands with sunblock and wear gloves when spending time outdoors during the day. Exposing your hands to the sun accelerates signs of aging, so it's best to avoid direct UV exposure whenever possible. Add a moisturizer to your daily routine and make sure not to use products with harsh chemicals.
