Hand filler injections are becoming increasingly popular as people continue to look for ways to enhance their appearance. Many people are familiar with facial fillers, but hand fillers are a lesser-known option offering many benefits.
John M. Anastasatos, MD, FACS, and his Los Angeles Plastic Surgery team offer Radiesse® Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaOH) hand injections to improve their appearance. Radiesse is the only filler FDA-approved for hand rejuvenation. Here are five reasons to consider hand filler injections in Los Angeles.
Our hands tend to lose volume as we age, making them look bony and frail. Hand fillers can help restore the hands’ volume, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Dr. Anastasatos first injects Radiesse filler in the subcutaneous tissue, then deeper into the metacarpal spaces. Then he injects Radiesse filler in the deep dermis of the skin and around the knuckles. This treatment smooths out the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The result is hands that look fuller and more vibrant.
Hand filler injections are a minimally invasive procedure that is done in Dr. Anastasatos’ clinic. Most patients experience minimal pain during the procedure and can resume their normal activities immediately after. Radiesse syringes contain lidocaine, which helps with local anesthesia and makes the procedure comfortable. In order to alleviate the discomfort. Dr. Anastasatos applies a very potent topical anesthetic cream formulated by him and a local compounding pharmacy.
The entire hand filler injection procedure typically takes about 15-30 minutes, depending on the number of injections needed. This means you can do the procedure during your lunch break and return to work or other activities in no time.
Hand filler injections can provide long-lasting results, with some patients seeing results for up to a year or more. The body gradually absorbs the filler over time, but the results can be maintained with periodic touch-up injections. Dr. Anastasatos and his team can recommend a maintenance injection schedule for you.
Many people feel self-conscious about the appearance of their hands, especially as they age. Hand filler injections can help to boost your confidence by giving you more youthful-looking hands. With fuller, smoother hands, you may feel more comfortable showing them off in public and may even feel more confident in social situations.
