As we age, we spend a little more time in front of the mirror lamenting the good ‘ol days when we were young. In that mirror we see the tell-tale signs that time and experience are starting to take its toll, so we make a little more effort, use a little more cream and rub a little more gently. We see a few laugh lines around the mouth, a couple of spots near the jawline, a few gray hairs, but overall, time is being quite fair. Yep, we’re thinking, “I could pass for a good five years younger than I am.” Then we reach up to smooth away the tiny creases around our eyes, and WHAT THE HECK—that hand. Oh my goodness, is that mine? The tendons and veins are protruding so prominently that it appears as if the back of my hand is covered in peaks and valleys. On closer scrutiny, the skin is papery thin and wrinkly, bony and fragile. No doubt from the many years of cooking and cleaning (well that really doesn’t apply to me) but you get the point.
We spend countless hours and many dollars on our face, but our hands are often overlooked. Due to not enough care and too much exposure to water and chemicals and weather, our hands often are the first thing that gives away our age. Luckily, technology has a procedure that can ward off the aging hand syndrome. It’s called Radiesse. This procedure rejuvenates the back of the hands. It is an injectable filler that is placed just under the skin using a fine needle. The filler immediately plumps and replenishes volume to the back of the hands to give a fuller, smoother, younger appearance. Radiesse provides instant and long-lasting results at an affordable price.
Everything requires maintenance as we age. If you have concerns about your hands giving away your age (or even making you appear older than you are), Radiesse might just be a beneficial procedure for you.
