Radiesse for Hands

Radiesse is a high performance dermal filler commonly used as anti-aging treatments. It is particularly effective in treating moderate-to-severe folds and wrinkles on the face, such as nasolabial folds. Plus, it helps to add volume to sunken facial areas that lack volume. It is also used on other areas such as the chin, cheeks, nose, and lips. In recent years, Radiesse has been prescribed for treating aging hands that suffer from volume loss.

Hand augmentation using Radiesse

Radiesse obtained FDA approval in 2015 for hand augmentation, making it the first dermal filler to be indicated for volume loss in the backs of the hands. Having undergone extensive testing, Radiesse is clinically proven safe. According to the manufacturer, Radiesse is able to deliver visible volumizing effects instantly after treatment. It reduces the appearance of veins and tendons in the hands, providing natural yet dramatic anti-aging benefits.

The science behind Radiesse for hands

The superior volumizing effects of Radiesse can be attributed to its key ingredient, synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (or simply CaHA). Formulated as microspheres, calcium hydroxylapatite is suspended in aqueous gel (which acts as a carrier). Calcium hydroxylapatite is a biocompatible material that has a minimal risk of rejection.

Having collagen-regenerating properties, Radiesse acts in the skin to promote the synthesis of collagen, helping to heal the skin naturally.

Is Radiesse for hands safe?

Being FDA-approved, Radiesse for hands has an excellent safety profile. Radiesse has a long history of safe use and is unlikely to cause any major side effects. However, as with all injectables, Radiesse has a risk of causing minor injection-site reactions including swelling, discomfort, and redness, all of which are self-limiting in nature. These side effects generally resolve within seven days. Rare side effects, such as injection into a blood vessel, are more common when the filler is administered by an unlicensed individual. To avoid serious adverse effects, only seek treatment from a licensed injector.
