Are You a Candidate?
People concerned about signs of aging often overlook the hands and instead focus on facial concerns. But, for a lot of people, the hands are the most likely place to age prematurely. Sun-damaged, wrinkled hands with crepey skin and prominent veins can make you look older than you are even if your face and neck look smooth and toned. RADIESSE is an excellent option if you are concerned about:
- Thin, translucent skin
- Prominent veins and tendons
- Age spots
- Loss of volume
Patients concerned about signs of aging may also want to discuss getting BOTOX® Cosmetic or facial fillers such as JUVÉDERM® or Restylane® during the same appointment at our Westchester County office to address all of their aesthetic concerns simultaneously.
The RADIESSE 'Hand Lift'
When injected with precision, RADIESSE restores the volume that is lost over time as the thin layer of soft tissue that gives the hands a smooth, youthful look begins to break down with age. RADIESSE is a unique filler that actually stimulates the production of collagen, the building blocks of skin that gives it the elasticity associated with youth.
Not only is Dr. Bank a Certified Injector of RADIESSE for Hands, but he has also personally performed research on using RADIESSE as an anti-aging treatment for this area. Experience and training are the keys to getting results that look natural and avoiding a puffy appearance. Dr. Bank gets excellent, immediate results that in most cases last up to a year.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the treatment take?
Filler procedures generally take only a few minutes and are done in our office. The injections themselves take just seconds after Dr. Bank creates a treatment plan and an assistant sterilizes your skin. Once the injections are completed, Dr. Bank may massage the hands to ensure the filler is evenly distributed.
Do the injections hurt?
No, most patients say the procedure includes only minor discomfort. Some patients request a topical or injected anesthetic beforehand. Dr. Bank uses a very fine needle to inject the filler, further ensuring your comfort.
Is more than 1 treatment needed?
You will see results immediately after a single procedure, but some patients may want a touch-up treatment to get the optimal results they desire. A clinical study showed that 90% of patients who returned for a second treatment 6 months after the initial injections continued seeing improvement in the appearance of their hands a year later.
Is RADIESSE for Hands the same as the filler used for the face?
Yes, RADIESSE is the first and only filler approved by the FDA to restore volume in the back of the hands and to minimize facial wrinkles and lines.
Is an allergy test needed before being treated with RADIESSE?
No, the tiny microspheres suspended in the gel are made of calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance that is naturally found in the body. This means there is no need for testing and no risk of an allergic reaction.
Is there downtime after the injections?
The most common side effects following treatment with RADIESSE — and injectable treatments, in general — are slight swelling and redness. Patients generally resume their normal activities following the procedure. Applying ice to the hands can help reduce swelling.
