Reclaim Your Beautiful Hands in Salt Lake
Why do Hands need treatment?
As we age, often we forget that our hands age along with everything else. In fact, the hands suffer significantly more abuse than other parts of our body since they are always exposed to sunlight, hot and cold temperatures. When you hands start to look like your parents, Dr. Dunkley has options for you.
How do hands change as they age?
Common changes seen with aging include discoloration, increased visibility of tendons, bones and veins as well as thinning of the dermis. As the skin ages, elasticity is lost. Loose skin combined with fat loss in the hands makes the veins, tendons and bones more visible. Add sun damage, seen as dark spots, and the hands change from youthful to old. However, Salt Lake City residents needn’t live with these changes.
What can be done to reverse changes seen in the hands?
A significant option available to reverse signs of aging in the hands is volume restoration. Replacing the lost volume on the back of the hands dramatically changes their look. Initially known as a popular cosmetic filler, Radiesse was approved by the FDA for just that purpose. Envision Cosmetic Surgery is excited to spread the word that Radiesse can now be used to restore lost volume in the hands.
What is Radiesse?
Radiesse is a filler that has long been approved for use in the smile lines around the mouth sometimes called the nasolabial folds. The main component of the filler is hydroxyapatite, a substance found in our body’s bone. Radiesse has been used safely for more than 10 years. Recent studies have confirmed it can be safely used in a new area, the hands
What should I expect when I come for a treatment?
Radiesse treatment for hands is non-surgical and can be accomplished in about 30 minutes. Select spots on the hands are injected with numbing medication. The filler is then placed in select areas and massaged into the appropriate areas on the hands.
What should I expect after the treatments?
Most patients experience a mild ache in their hands for a couple days easily controlled with ibuprofen. Bruising is also possible. The hands improved appearance is immediately seen.
