Get a Helping Hand: Fight Hand Aging with Dermal Fillers

 Time can take its toll on our bodies. As we age, skin quality changes as collagen production slows down, fine lines begin to appear, and things start to droop and sag, including our hands. What do your hands say about you? If your hands are saying you are older than you are, you may want to talk to Dr. Peterson about how you can help make your hands look more youthful with Radiesse.

How Do Hands Age
Hands start to age when the rest of starts aging- which is our early twenties. It’s true. The early twenties are when the fat that fills out our hands and faces begins to break down. This continues as we age and eventually leaves our skin sagging. When it happens in the hands, it makes our handles look bony. Veins and joints are more pronounced, too.

Hands Also Are in Hot Water…Literally
We use our hands for so many things. and this means they’re exposed to not only hot water, but cold temperatures and chemicals, too. These elements are rough on the skin. So is the sun- and many times the hands are skipped when applying sunscreen. Harsh elements and damaging rays can rob your hands of collagen and elastin, and speeding up the aging process.

How Can Radiesse Help Your Hands? 
Radiesse can help turn back time and give your hands a more youthful appearance. Radiesse is a collagen-based dermal filler than can replace lost fat volume, plumping up your hands and smoothing out wrinkled skin. Radiesse can make your hands look younger by filling in around the tendons and veins that become more noticeable when you lose fat volume. Since Radiesse is a collagen based, it causes the body to increase collagen production, which gives you some skin improving benefits. Skin looks younger, smoother, and is more elastic.

Dr. Peterson can turn back than the hands of time for your hands in just one office visit. The application takes about 30 minutes, and Radiesse lasts for about a year in most patients.
