Radiesse is a proven solution for reducing wrinkles, especially on the face and hands. Wrinkles begin to form after the skin stops producing as much collagen, which happens as we get older. The lost collagen leads to dryer, less elastic skin, which in turn allows wrinkles to form and become deeper. Radiesse stimulates collagen production, which in turn plumps the skin and reduces fine lines and wrinkles!

Radiesse for Wrinkles

Radiesse has just recently been approved by the FDA for use on the hands. The hands are a notable “tell zone” – an area that gives away a person’s true age. As we age, our hands also lose collagen, causing the skin to become thinner and highlighting veins and wrinkles. Radiesse can restore collagen to the hands, firming and plumping the skin so that wrinkles reduce and veins become less prominent. The hands are one of the most visible areas of the body, so keeping them looking youthful is a necessary step in achieving an overall more youthful appearance. If you’re receiving dermal fillers for a more youthful face, it’s important not to forget about the hands, either!

Radiesse for wrinkles has no side effects aside from possible minor bruising or swelling at the injection site. When injected by an experienced, board-certified dermatologist such as Dr. Isaac, the chances for these minor side effects are reduced. Generally, if swelling or bruising occurs, it will disappear after a couple hours or days. Radiesse takes only a short time to administer, and you can return to your everyday activities immediately following the treatment! Optimal results can take a few months to appear, as the body is busy rebuilding collagen. However, Radiesse results can last for a long time – up to a year or more!

If you are suffering from wrinkles on the face or hands and want a long-lasting solution, wrinkle fillers such as Radiesse may be good for you. Talk to a board-certified dermatologist such as Dr. Isaac to learn more!
