The loss of fat in the hands that comes with age and displays prominent veins and tendons can be safely replaced with injectable fillers to hide unsightly veins and tendons and recover a youthful appearance. As an added benefit, these fillers encourage the production of collagen which will also improve the surface texture of the skin. If the skin has lost elasticity and appears dry and crepey, injectable skin boosters can deliver firmer, plumper skin.
Loss of volume can be reversed with two types of dermal filler;
1. Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar chain molecule found in all skin and soft tissues throughout the body, identical across species. It attracts and binds water in the skin, providing volume and hydration, but also ‘cushioning’ and supporting collagen and elastin fibres and providing a medium, or carrier, for chemical messages between the cells. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are a clear sterile gel in a syringe for injection into the skin providing instant correction.

Radiesse is a dermal filler/collagen stimulator consisting of Calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a gel carrier which consists mainly of water and glycerine. Radiesse is highly biocompatible. Calcium hydroxylapatite is the main mineral component of bone and teeth, which consists of calcium and phosphate ions that occur naturally in the body.
Radiesse injections plump and replenish volume to the back of the hands to provide a youthful appearance instantly. Injected beneath the skin, Radiesse raises the skin level so that tendons, joints and veins lose their prominence.
