Your face isn’t the only very visible part of your body that can develop wrinkles that give you an older appearance. While volume loss can create hollows and sagging in the cheek areas and at the jawline, it can also cause hands to appear aged, since tendons and veins become more exposed and pronounced as fat diminishes. Radiesse® is a dermal filler frequently used to restore this lost volume.
Dr. Derek Jones has long used Radiesse® for Los Angeles-area patients coming to his Skin Care and Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills, which is why he wasn’t surprised when the FDA approved the filler explicitly for use on hands. In fact, Dr. Jones sat on the board in Washington, D.C., that presented the research data to the FDA, which led to the FDA approval of Radiesse® for hands.
While aesthetic treatments are frequently used in what are known as “off-label” situations—which, despite being separate from the product’s stated purpose, remain safe and effective at the hands of an experienced dermatologist—an FDA approval adds much more weight and can give even more patients confidence in a proven technique.
Radiesse® works by adding volume to areas where fat and collagen have diminished, as well as by stimulating the growth of new collagen. Patients who receive injections of this dermal filler will notice continually improving results as their own body produces the vital component of healthy skin, whether that’s in the face or on the hands.
