Points from the Video:
00:32- The most popular filler for adding volume to the hands is radiesse;
00:50- Radiesse is very malleable, and so when we inject it, we just massage it into place;
01:05- We will often combine laser resurfacing at the hands which takes away the brown spots and helps with some other fine lines and wrinkles;
01:18- Radiesse in the hands lasts about a year or two;
In facial plastic surgery, we spend most of our time rejuvenating the face. We hear often from patients that my face looks great, but when I bring my hands up to talk or drink or eat, it’s a dead giveaway of a patient’s age when the hands don’t match with the face or neck. So we do treat hands quite often and in rejuvenating the hands, what we do most of the time is use fillers. The most popular filler for adding volume to the hands is radiesse. It is performed in a quick in-office procedure that’s relatively comfortable; a syringe of radiesse is injected into both hands; radiesse is very malleable, and so when we inject it, we just massage it into place, and what it does is it helps to add volume to the face, it diminishes the appearance of the veins of the hand. If patients want to go beyond that, we will often combine laser resurfacing at the hands which takes away the brown spots and helps with some other fine lines and wrinkles. Radiesse in the hands lasts about a year or two; there is some new collagen stimulation when you place it there. So even when it goes away, the hands look a little bit better. It’s a nice relatively inexpensive way of matching the appearance of the hands to the face.
