Learn More About Radiesse Hands
Over time, the backs of our hands can lose volume and develop wrinkles, giving away our age. In addition, our hands receive a lot of sun exposure over the years, causing the skin to age. Most people are quick to notice signs of aging on their face, but ignore their hands, despite the fact that there are simple and effective treatments to restore a youthful appearance. If you feel that your hands make you appear older than you feel and would like to restore fullness to the backs of your hands, Radiesse may be able to help.
There are very few side effects associated with Radiesse, the most common being mild swelling and bruising which can last for 1-2 weeks. Patients should avoid strenuous activities for 24-48 hours after treatment in order to obtain optimal results. Results can last up to one year or longer.

Radiesse is a dermal filler that is used to diminish the appearance of wrinkles by adding plumpness under the skin. Radiesse can treat signs of aging on the backs of the hands, smoothing the appearance of tendons and veins. Dr. Shienbaum has been trained in the aesthetic treatment of the hands and is certified to perform Radiesse treatments.
In addition to treating the hands, Radiesse can also be used to treat volume loss and signs of aging in the face and other areas. Ask Dr. Shienbaum about combining procedures to address all of your aging concerns.
Radiesse is made up of microspheres of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) which are suspended in a water-based gel. When Radiesse is injected, it produces immediate volume but continues to work overtime by stimulating collagen in the skin. Over time, the gel is absorbed by the body, leaving behind only your natural collagen and a younger-looking appearance.
The first step towards a more youthful-looking you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Shienbaum. He will assess your hands to determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment. If so, treatment can then take place. During treatment, Dr. Shienbaum will apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area. Then, the injections will take place over 10-20 minutes. Very small needles are used, and patients express the treatment as being virtually painless. The treated area will then be massaged to distribute the product evenly.
The cost of Radiesse treatment varies depending on the number of injections necessary. Typically, it falls into the range of $650 to $800 per syringe.
The key ingredient in Radiesse stimulates collagen production, making it much longer-lasting than other injectable treatments. The results can last up to two years.
Radiesse injections are usually administered using numbing cream or local anesthesia. They should not be painful, but may be mildly uncomfortable.
