If you have been gazing into the mirror and feeling as though there is no way to turn back the time on your wrinkles, you're definitely not alone. The effects of age, sun damage, stress, and many other environmental and behavioral factors can give your face an appearance that you're not too happy to show off. However, there is a solution that will allow you to look like the reflection you remember from years past.
At JUVA Skin & Laser Center, our New York City dermatologist, Dr. Bruce Katz, offers treatments with an injectable called Radiesse. Radiesse can also be used to fill in the hollows or sunken areas of your hands to renew a healthy and rejuvenated look there as well. It will also help hide prominent veins or tendons that may be visible in the back of your hands, giving you the youthful look that you desire.
Dr. Katz was a part of the very few physicians that were involved in the clinical trials of Radiesse® for hands, making him an expert in its application. He has decades of experience in treating patients and helping them to achieve their aesthetic goals.
What Is Radiesse?
Radiesse is used to plump the skin in areas that are sunken, wrinkled, or have developed lines on your face on hands. The microspheres of calcium within it work to plump the injected skin and also encourage your body to stimulate collagen in those areas. Collagen is one of the most important building blocks to have plump, naturally healthy-looking skin.
Where Else Can Radiesse Be Used?
Radiesse is FDA-approved to be injected into the following locations:
- Smile lines – lines that run from the base of the nose to the corners of your mouth (nosolabial folds)
- Corners of your mouth – can be injected if this area appears to be downturned as though you're frowning
- Wrinkles in your chin
- Saggy skin on the sides of your chin
- Lines that run downward from your mouth to your chin
- Sunken areas on the backs of your hands
- Skin between your fingers that appears wrinkled, thin, or sunken
If you're ready for a minimally invasive and simple solution that will alter how you look so you love what you see, it's time to contact JUVA Skin & Laser Center for a consultation or call (212) 688-5882.
