Hand Rejuvenation Fontana
Hands naturally lose volume as we age; therefore, Hand Rejuvenation is the best solution for that. Radiesse® can be injected under the skin along the back of the hands to restore volume and lessen the visibility of veins and tendons. It also stimulates the body to produce its own collagen.
Most patients report an immediate improvement in the appearance of their hands that lasts up to 12 months!
The Radiesse® services at Weill Cornell Medicine’s Vein Treatment Center are:
- FDA approved
- Proven to improve the appearance of the hands
- Injected by skilled and experienced specialists
How does hand rejuvenation work?
Radiesse® is a filler that is able to plump up the skin and subcutaneous space on the back of the hands and as an added bonus – promote collagen production. Thinning of the back of the hands reveals veins and edges of bones which can be a sign of aging. By thickening this area, the veins and bony appearance lessons as does the signs of aging. Dr. Sina will make sure to explain to his patients the process of Hand Rejuvenation in Fontana.
Is Radiesse® painful?
Most of our patients say that this procedure isn’t very painful. We do use a numbing injection and mix numbing medicine into the filler syringe of Radiesse®. I can usually do the procedure with one entry site – much like laparoscopic surgery.
How soon will I see results of my hand rejuvenation, and how long will they last?
You will see the results right away. At first there may be some mild swelling, but after about 7-10 days the slight swelling resolves.
What are the side effects of Radiesse®?
The side effects are minimal and mostly related to bruising, mild swelling, mild redness, and some mild dull ache for about a day or two afterwards. The active ingredients of Radiesse® are naturally occurring substances in the body. Thus, the risk of allergic reaction is very small.
Who is Radiesse® treatment for?
This treatment is for patients who are concerned about the thinning of the back of their hands due to aging.
