Hand Augmentation: the newest treatment in the fight against ageing

Hand Augmentation: the newest treatment in the fight against ageing

When we think about the signs of ageing we might imagine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, uneven pigmentation, a loss of elasticity – but we almost always consider these in relation to our faces, when in fact all of the above affect our hands too.

This is because ageing occurs first, and most prominently, to skin that is exposed to the elements. So while we protect of faces with moisturiser and SPF, our hands can often be left neglected. Applying SPF to your hands is the best means of preventing sun damage and many signs of ageing, though there is now an effective anti-ageing solution especially for your hands.

Radiesse is a new FDA approved product specifically for Hand Augmentation. The calcium hydroxyapatite occurs naturally in the body and is injected into the backs of the hands to plump and smooth wrinkles.

As one dermatologist explained, the products fills wrinkles and provides a “scaffold to stimulate your own body’s production of collagen” with the results lasting between one and two years.
