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.

Even when we take care of our faces and bodies our hands can still show the signs of premature aging and appear much younger than you are. At the London Cosmetic Clinic we can make your
hands look youthful again with the use of high quality dermal fillers.
There are two main fillers that we use on the hands and they both have different effects. The first is Juvederm which is based on syntheticallycreated, biocompatible Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic
acid is a compound that is naturally found in the skin and attracts water so, when used on the skin, it makes it more moisturised and regain its bounce. This can help improve the appearance of
crepey looking skin on the backs of the hands. The other dermal filler used is Radiesse, which contains tiny beads of calcium hydroxylapatite in a gel. This is injected as a ball and then massaged into
the grooves of your hands to provide a ‘scaffolding’ in boney, sinewy hands that have lost their fat padding. This also encourages the skin to produce more collagen so the condition of the skin is improved. The effects last up to 2 years.
Prior to your treatment we will numb the area to minimise any discomfort and afterwards you will not have to take any down time to recover but we do recommend that you keep the area clean
with plain water and avoid products like perfumed soap and hand cream to avoid irritation. You should also avoid vitamin E, arnica, St.John’s wort and aspirin and ibuprofen to avoid swelling. If
you would like younger looking hands and are considering Juvederm or Radiesse treatments, contact us today to book your free consultation.
