We can disguise the signs of aging on our skin and our hair, but our hands can give our age away as they lose the layer of fat on their backs and production of collagen slows down, leaving the tendons and veins showing though the skin. At the London Cosmetic Clinic we use Radiesse fillers to make the skin appear plumper and more lifted as one of our anti-aging treatments.
Radiesse is one of the best dermal fillers available and consists of tiny beads of calcium hydroxylapatite in a sterile gel which forms a cushion under the skin. It is injected as a ball into the backs of your hands and massaged to shape it. This pads out the skin slightly so it is lifted away from the tendons and veins and the skin’s volume is restored. You may notice some swelling for a couple of days and we may recommend a top-up treatment after 2 to 4 weeks from your initial session to obtain your desired results. The procedure is non-invasive, does not require general anaesthetic and after the procedure you are free to go about your day as there is no recovery time required.
The results last around 12 months so are long lasting but not permanent so you can have the treatment repeated if you are happy with the results. Prior to your treatment you will have a free consultation where we will discuss your desired results and plan a bespoke treatment plan for you.
