If you’re old enough to remember Madge and her clients soaking their hands in a bowl of Palmolive Dish Soap, chances are you have old lady hands yourself. We take such precious care that our faces defy our chronological age, yet without the same attention paid to our hands, they’re a dead give-away of our real age. Keeping the hands moisturized is a start but even Madge’s magic Palmolive will do nothing to improve the topography of bulging veins and knobby tendons.
Now there’s a way to turn back the hands of time with Radiesse® Dermal Filler. Radiesse has a long history of safe and effective use as a dermal filler for facial folds and wrinkles. Just recently the FDA approved Radiesse for use in the hands. Radiesse works by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen, but the effects of volume restoration are immediate. With just one treatment Radiesse restores younger-looking hands by reducing the appearance of tendons and veins.
