We often use Radiesse to fill in or plump up bony hands. The treatment takes 15 minutes, but plan for 40 minutes as we apply a numbing cream for 20 minutes prior to injection. There may be some swelling or bruising afterwards, but patients can use their hands right away. Swelling lasts 24 to 48 hours and bruising may last up to two weeks. Treatment lasts 12 to 18 months. It usually takes ½ to 1 full syringe per hand, and cost ranges from $540 to $1080.
A good complement to this procedure is a hand facial. Similar to a regular facial, we apply a peel to lessen brown spots and sun damage. We also prescribe bleaching cream to prevent the sun spots from returning. For more on our peels and Radiesse, check out the following links:
