RADIESSE® for Hands
RADIESSE® for Hands is the first and only dermal filler FDA approved to correct volume loss in the hands and help reduce the prominence of tendons and veins for smooth, natural-looking results. RADIESSE® has traditionally been used as a facial filler but is now available for hand rejuvenation.
RADIESSE® provides an immediate volumizing effect and can help to reduce the prominence of tendons and veins in the hands, delivering smooth, natural-looking results that can last up to one year.
Dr. Graivier was the first plastic surgeon in the world to use RADIESSE® for Hand rejuvenation. His expertise and knowledge will ensure quality results for our Atlanta-area and out-of-town patients. Treating the hands with RADIESSE® is a quick in-office procedure that can usually be completed in ten minutes.
Sclerotherapy is effective for medium-sized blood vessels (greater than three millimeters in diameter). The treatment involves injecting a sclerosing solution into the affected veins with a micro-needle.
The sclerosing solution irritates the lining of the vein, causing it to swell shut and block the flow of blood. The vein will then scar and collapse, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades.
A hand-piece is passed over your skin and the blood absorbs the laser light, causing the vessels to coagulate and be absorbed by the body.
The IPL uses light waves to fade spots and discolorations. A series of treatments is required. For stubborn spots or discolorations, add PDT to the treatment for better results.
Through short bursts of high intensity laser light, the upper layers of your hands’ skin are damaged. As your skin heals, healthier, younger looking tissue emerges.
The fat is harvested using liposuction techniques, purified and then re-injected into your hands.
Dr. Graivier will make an incision on the top of the hand near the wrist and remove loose skin. He will then suture the skin back together.
Some swelling and pain is to be expected afterwards and can be managed by medication.
