One of the most age-telling features of our bodies is our hands. They tell our story, the places we have been, and the work we’ve done, and because they are so full of life and memories, they tend to take the brunt of unwanted wear and tear. As collagen begins to break down on the backs of our hands, a visible impact occurs, which results in crinkly skin and bulging veins. Not all hope is lost if your hands tell stories of years that haven’t arrived yet. At Skin Care at 5th Avenue, we offer a state-of-the-art solution for your hands with a procedure called RADIESSE. The simple treatment is a dermal filler that is injected into the skin and has natural-looking results that can last up to one year with a single treatment. Dr. Galitzin’s hand treatments also include intense pulsed light (IPL) laser treatment to diminish brown spots. These combined treatments can ensure that your hands look beautiful even as you age.
We are proud to offer RADIESSE for hand rejuvenation from our home base in Peachtree City, GA providing the treatment for patients in surrounding communities such as the greater Atlanta area, Newnan, and Fayetteville.
RADIESSE Hand Rejuvenation works by stimulating natural collagen production to restore fullness to the backs of the hand. The treatment is a longer-lasting dermal filler that not only fills lines and wrinkles but also helps rebuild skin below the surface to add volume and restore youthfulness over time. RADIESSE is a synthetic version of calcium hydroxylapatite, a natural compound found in the body. Because it is non-animal-based and free from animal protein, it is a safe and effective treatment that does not require allergy testing. RADIESSE is the only FDA-approved dermal filler to restore volume to the backs of the hands; there is no need to travel out of state for this sought-out treatment, as we offer it right here outside Atlanta in Peachtree City, GA.
RADIESSE ® Hands provides patients with results that can last up to a year or more with just one treatment session. It is a safe, non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that makes your hands look younger. The procedure offers immediate improvement and long-lasting results with minimal risks. Combined with our IPL laser treatment, your results will be even more dramatic. RADIESSE can offer several functional benefits, such as:
The best candidates for RADIESSE Hands Rejuvenation in the greater Atlanta area are patients who are in good health and would like to improve signs of aging in the backs of their hands. Suppose you are dealing with a loss of volume that creates hollows and increases the visibility of veins and tendons; this is your procedure. Although women in their 40s and 50s are the most typical candidate for hand rejuvenation, it is growing in popularity with younger women as they take advantage of the treatment to prepare for engagement and wedding photos.
The first step towards the rejuvenation of your hands is to contact us at Skin Care at 5th Avenue and schedule a consultation. During this appointment, Dr. Joseph Galitzin will take the time to create a personalized treatment plan that seamlessly integrates your aesthetic preferences and desired outcome. Dr. Galitzin will evaluate your hands and skin to determine if you are a candidate for RADIESSE. Since IPL laser rejuvenation is included, he can also explain how this laser treatment corrects brown spots on the backs of your hands. We will review your medical history to ensure that the plan is the most efficient for you. If you’re ready to start your RADIESSE Hand Rejuvenation, we can begin immediately. If another day works better for you, our Patient Coordinator will book a future appointment to suit your needs better.
On the day of your treatment, we aim to ensure you feel confident and relaxed. We start by cleaning the area that will receive the treatment with antiseptic. In some cases, an anesthetic can be used; this will be determined beforehand. Dr. Galitzin performs RADIESSE Hand Rejuvenation right in our office by injecting the filler into the backs of the hands. The entire procedure shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes. The procedure is relatively painless; however, you may experience some redness, swelling, tenderness, or itching at the injection site. These should subside within a few days. An ice pack may be used before and after treatment to reduce swelling. You can return to your normal activities as soon as your RADIESSE is complete. However, we caution all patients to avoid any strenuous activities involving their hands for a day or so.
Following treatment, you may experience some redness, bruising, or swelling. These signs are mild and usually go away in a short period of time. You may apply an ice pack to help reduce the swelling. Our team will supply you with clear and detailed care instructions for a smooth recovery period. Things you should avoid after RADIESSE Hand Rejuvenation are:
We understand the significance of cost to our patients and assure any estimates or expense breakdowns will be as crystal clear as possible. With that said, the price of RADIESSE Hand Rejuvenation in the Atlanta, Georgia area is based on several factors, including the area being treated and the amount of filler needed for optimal results. After consulting with a member of our technician team, our Patient Coordinator can provide you with a clear-cut price analysis.
