Your hands don’t lie. Even with a more youthful-looking face, your age can easily be given away by the appearance of your hands.
Thin skin at the back of the hand shows signs of ageing faster than most other areas of the body. This volume loss shows the bones and tendons of the hand, a dead giveaway of your age.
RADIESSE® is the first and only FDA-approved product for hand augmentation to correct volume loss in the hands. RADIESSE® restores volume to the hands while providing smooth, natural-looking results that can be seen immediately and can last over one year*(see disclaimer).
At Bloor Village Cosmetic Medicine clinic you will receive individualized and specific treatment for natural-looking hand rejuvenation. Dr. Alves’s expertise and experience will ensure your treatment will be performed safely and accurately, while minimizing potential side effects.
We’re excited to help you achieve your aesthetic goals so you can feel better about yourself!
Common Questions about RADIESSE®
How does it work?
RADIESSE® works by recreating the natural fullness underneath the skin that is lost as we age. It also stimulates the body’s natural collagen production to further hide the look of tendons and bones that become apparent with aged and dehydrated skin. This works to create a smooth and refreshed appearance.
How is RADIESSE® administered?
RADIESSE® is administered using a very thin needle to avoid any pain, bruising or swelling. The RADIESSE® is injected directly underneath the skin of the hand and should have an immediate effect in hiding the appearance of aged hands. Over the next weeks to months there will be further fullness as the body is stimulated to recreate the natural collagen that gives our body tissues fullness, volume, and a youthful appearance*(see disclaimer).
How long does the procedure take?
RADIESSE® hand rejuvenation treatment typically takes only several minutes. Your appointment will be scheduled for upwards of 30 minutes for Dr. Alves’s consultation. As with any medical procedure performed at Bloor Village Medical Cosmetics your safety and aesthetic outcome are our utmost concern, and so only Dr. Alves will perform your procedures.
The procedure does not leave any indication that it was performed and you may go about your day right away with any restrictions!
Who should not have RADIESSE®?
RADIESSE® should not be used in pregnant or lactating women, as well as people who have had a previous allergic reaction to the drug or any of its ingredients.
Can people tell I’ve had RADIESSE®?
No one should be able to tell that you’ve had RADIESSE® hand rejuvenation treatments, but they should notice that you look more refreshed, relaxed, and youthful.
Is RADIESSE® permanent?
RADIESSE® is not permanent. The body will slowly absorb and break down RADIESSE ® over the course of 1-2 years, providing long-lasting effects due to the stimulation of your body’s natural collagen as well as the volumizing properties of the product itself*(see disclaimer).
What happens to the RADIESSE® once it is in my body?
RADIESSE® will stay within the layers of tissues it was injected in. Over time the body will slowly break down the product and you will require additional treatments to recreate the youthful effect.
How much does it cost?
The price of RADIESSE® is calculated on a “per syringe” basis. This means that each individual will need a specific amount of product to achieve the results that they are looking for. Therefore, the cost of the treatment varies by each patient depending on the areas and amount of product needed.
What are the potential side effects of RADIESSE®?
The vast majority of patients do not experience any side effects. Rare and temporary side effects include pain, and minor bruising. Dr. Alves undertakes a thorough discussion of side effects for all procedures. Please feel free to discuss any and all concerns with him at the time of your free consultation.
