While most people think about the face as the site of most signs of aging, the hands and décolletage are also impacted. If you’ve noticed thinner, looser, or wrinkled skin in these areas due to aging, Radiesse is an advanced dermal filler that can help you achieve a more youthful look.
Signs of Aging in the Hands
As we age, the skin on the hands loses elasticity and volume. This is largely due to reduced collagen and elastin in the skin, as these proteins provide structure to the skin. With less volume, the skin on the hands may appear translucent, wrinkled, or develop age spots.
The hands also commonly develop a skeletal appearance as a result of the aging process. As the fat tissue in the hands diminishes, the bones of the hand will become more prominent.
Signs of Aging in the Décolletage
The décolletage refers to the upper chest and neck area. The skin in this region is delicate and particularly susceptible to signs of aging.
Many necklines expose the décolletage, meaning that it’s also often exposed to the sun’s harsh UV rays. Forgetting to apply sunscreen to the décolletage is a common issue and can lead to premature aging, but wrinkled and thinning skin in the décolletage is also a result of the natural aging process.
Radiesse To Rejuvenate the Hands and Decolletage
Radiesse is a dermal filler that can be used to restore a youthful appearance in the hands and décolletage. This filler can restore lost volume in the skin, smooth out the surface of the skin, and reduce the appearance of prominent veins and tendons.
Results from Radiesse typically last between 12 and 18 months. It’s a long-lasting filler with calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) as the main active ingredient. CaHA stimulates collagen production in the skin so that the results of Radiesse treatment continue to improve long after the injections are administered.
