When you remove veins, certain areas of the body—like the hands—may need aesthetic volume improvement. This is a fast, super simple procedure that literally converts older-looking hands to younger-looking hands in minutes.
After microphlebectomy of the protruding hand veins, Radiesse filler injections are introduced into the back of the hands. While the filler might be assumed to be painful, in reality, the procedure is virtually painless. It generally takes less than 20 minutes to inject both hands.
When it comes to vein removal and volume loss, the face, hands, and areas of the body with old scars or pits near bulging surface veins may present problems. Behind the knee or the tendons, bones, and the veins of aging hands are common concerns.
Dr. Smalling offers a solution to one of these matters with Radiesse. The FDA has cleared Radiesse's indication for volume loss in the back of the hands.
Radiesse is a dense, moldable filler made of calcium-based microspheres. With established longevity of 12 to 24 months, Radiesse wears well in the hands and provides an instant cushion replacement. The depressions caused by vein removal in the hands and the additional volume loss between the tendons can be refilled so the bony appearance is reduced, giving your hands a softer, fuller appearance that signifies youth.
Radiesse rejuvenation for hands usually requires at least two syringes. However, each patient is different and volume loss is individual, so discuss with Dr. Smalling your customized Hand Lift Plan. Other competing fillers are evolving and improving, so stay up-to-date by consulting with Dr. Smalling and his trusted staff at IN VEIN.
Dr. Smalling offers a form of Radiesse called Radiesse Plus. Radiesse Plus is pre-mixed with Lidocaine so that the nerve endings in the skin are anesthetized.
A "bolus" or "ball" of Radiesse is injected and then massaged into the volume-deficient areas. Because the product is thicker than hyaluronic fillers (such as Juvederm, Restylane, and others), it specifically is easily massaged into the proper place and remains in those areas so the skin is perceived as hydrated, smooth, and even.
Radiesse, when properly metabolized and injected, maintains a soft, natural feel and takes on the characteristics of the surrounding skin tissue. Once integrated into the skin, the presence of the Radiesse microspheres promotes new elastin and collagen production, which is a secondary and additional benefit.
