Many patients who visit the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery are interested in finding out about tools for anti-aging. Fine lines and wrinkles can develop on the face, resulting in patients feeling self-conscious about the way they look. These issues may make them look older than they really are. Instead of undergoing plastic surgery such as a facelift, patients can visit our practice to discuss the possibility of cosmetic injectables.
Cosmetic injectables are commonly used to add volume to the skin for a more youthful appearance. They can last several months before reinjection is necessary. Many patients consider this as an option when fine lines and wrinkles are still relatively mild. Severe cases may still require surgery for improvement, but this can be delayed with the use of injectables.
Injectables are commonly used on the face, but volume loss can also affect the hands. Hands can be a true giveaway of someone’s age and they begin to lose volume starting around the age of 30. Men and women can seek an effective solution to this volume loss by visiting the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. We offer injections of Radiesse, which can be used directly in the hands to improve youthfulness. It can be used in the face as well and we can discuss with patients the best treatment option for their specific needs.
Radiesse is formulated with calcium microspheres in a gel that is injected directly into the areas where volume loss has occurred. It helps in stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen, which also means longer-lasting results. Radiesse is just one of many injectables used to address volume loss in the face and hands.
If you are interested in improving the appearance of the skin on the hands and adding volume to keep them looking youthful, contact our practice today to find out more about Radiesse injections. Radiesse and many other brands are readily available in our facility to help in turning back the hands of time without surgery.
