As we age, the subcutaneous fat located on the top of our hands decreases. Our skin thins and the veins, tendons and bones become more visible, making our hands look withered and aged. Hand rejuvenation injections restore fullness and elasticity to the hands using dermal fillers. Restylane Lyft & Radiesse are both FDA approved for hand injections and improve the look of aging hands by stimulating collagen, and plumping and hydrating the tissue resulting in supple, younger looking hands.
Restylane Lyft® Is FDA approved and has the Largest Hyaluronic acid formulation of all the fillers. It is ideal for filling the spaces where the fat pad has diminished and re-volumizing the “apple” of the cheek. It is dense, somewhat malleable and provides both lift and support. Lyft® can also be used to diminish nasolabial folds and hand augmentation.
Lasts approximately 15 - 18 months
Radiesse® is NOT hyaluronic acid. It is a FDA approved synthetic filler comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite or (CaHA) and an aqueous gel. Radiesse lifts as well as restores lost volume to the cheeks, the lower face and hands, and effectively treats moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. Once its been injected it creates a matrix that stimulates the body to produce its own collagen! As the CaHA is slowly metabolized the collagen remains, providing structural support to the face and strengthening bone.
