Hands Don’t Lie
Amy Brenner, MD & Associates is happy to introduce RADIESSE for Hands – an injectable filler that is FDA-approved to correct volume loss in the back of the hands.
The hands don’t lie. Even with a more youthful appearance of the face, your age can easily be given away by the appearance of your hands.
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 results1 that can be seen immediately and can last up to 1 year.
What is RADIESSE® used for?
RADIESSE® is injected under your skin on the back of your hands (not your palms) to add volume to lessen the visibility of veins and tendons in your hands due to loss of fullness which occurs as we age.
How does it work?
RADIESSE® is injected under the skin with a thin needle to plump the skin and add volume to the back of your hands. RADIESSE® will not be injected into your wrist or fingers.
Who should not use RADIESSE?
One of the risks with using this product is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if it does happen, the complications can be serious, and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin. If you have changes in your vision, signs of a stroke (including sudden difficulty speaking, numbness or weakness in your face, arms, or legs, difficulty walking, face drooping, severe headache, dizziness, or confusion), white appearance of the skin, or unusual pain during or shortly after treatment, you should notify your health care practitioner immediately.
RADIESSE should not be used in people who have an allergy to any component of the product.
RADIESSE should not be used in people with bleeding disorders.
You should not use RADIESSE if you are pregnant or breast feeding or if you are under 26 years of age.
