Treatment for Aging Hands – Radiesse w/ Optional AlexLazr
Do your hands give away your age?
Frequently the focus of cosmetic improvement is the face. Yet, one of the most age-telling body features is our hands. As we age, our hands lose firmness and plumpness and begin to look bony and fragile….with vein and joint protrusion, thin crepey skin texture and often they’ve become flecked with brown spots from sun exposure.
Combating the aging hand syndrome takes more than hand cream (though that simple step does make a difference). The latest technology has given us a set of procedures that will have similar effects as those we have been able to accomplish for the face.
Filler to restore the look of more youthful hands
Radiesse injections immediately re-plump and replenish volume to the back of the hands to provide a supple and youthful appearance instantly. Placed beneath the skin, Radiesse raises the skin level so that tendons, joints and veins lose their prominence. Radiesse provides instant and durable long lasting results.
Because Radiesse provides a scaffolding for collagen-building, the body’s own collagen interweaving into this structure keeps the skin feeling softly natural and smooth.
Radiesse has proven to be a very versatile facial contouring product and has demonstrated durable augmentation in areas such as chin and cheek where a larger volume is required. It maintains a soft, natural feel and takes on the characteristics of the surrounding skin tissue.
Results typically last 1 – 2 years. Radiesse does not require allergy testing. Radiesse is a safe, effective and non-surgical treatment, which provides immediate smoothing of wrinkles, scars and the replenishment of volume loss.
Irvine Board Certified Dermatologist Dr. Nissan Pilest is one of only 86 physicians throughout the country who serve as a member of the Medical Education Faculty for Radiesse. As a specially selected MEF, he is responsible for training other physicians in the use of Bioform’s (now Merz) Radiesse long-term injectable product
The microspheres of CaHA have been shown to last up to seven years clinically. Radiesse should provide a long lasting correction; however individual results may vary, affected by age, skin type, lifestyle and muscle activity.
AlexLazr for Age Spots and Pigmentation
If your hands are affected by age spots or liver spots, the AlexLazr is used to break up this pigment so the body can eliminate it. This laser seeks out darker pigment and fragments the pigment particles. As they are reduced to ultra-microscopic size, these dark pigment cells quickly surface and are both eliminated by the body’s clean up cells as well as by the natural turnover of epidermal tissue.
Your hands will need to be protected from future sun damage (the main culprit in all unwanted pigmentation) by regular use of sun protection. Persistent use of sunscreen is a necessary step, no matter what cosmetic procedure your choose. Dermaceutical medical grade serums provide additional anti-aging support.
- Brown Spot Removal – if you have spots or brown patches, you will first have treatments with the AlexLazr to remove these aging collections of pigment.
- Volume Replenishment – Get instant results with Radiesse which lasts for many months.
- Volume Replenishment – Typical requirements are a total of 1 Radiesse syringes per hand to attain a full smooth replacement of the cushioning on the back of the hands. In some instances an extra syringe is required (total 3) if your hands have lost substantial mounts of their natural fat layer or have a very prominent bony appearance. Men may require up to 2 syringes if their hands are large.
- Topical serums, Bionect and Cellular Rejuvenation Serum, with hyaluronic acid and tissue growth factors, augment the skin’s cell hydration and surface smoothness.
Immediately you will have hands that are well on their way to looking years younger.
Topical and Other “Non-Tech” Treatments
Although spot removal and volume replenishment is an ideal anti-aging hand rejuvenation process, not everyone is able to take advantage of rejuvenation programs. What are some low-tech alternatives?
Chemical peels will reap a minor to modest improvement in skin texture and pigmentation. The new SilkPeel is a microdermabrasion infusion treatment that can also improve skin texture and has zero downtime. Prescription retinoids like Avage can also be helpful as well as Cosmelan for pigmentation.
