Can fillers be used to plump up aged looking hands?
Yes. Radiesse is a calcium based filler that is used for aged looking hands. Most patients need 1-2 syringes of Radiesse per hand and the result lasts just over a year. This is an off-label use of Radiesse.
Do you recommend Radiesse as an effective alternative to more invasive facial rejuvenation procedures?
It depends. Radiesse is a calcium-based filler used to treat facial lines (i.e, smile lines) or hollow areas (i.e, cheeks). It is a type of filler used for volume enhancement. If you need volume then Radiesse will be beneficial.
I have extremely deep marionette lines. I have heard of the hyaluronic acid filler, Juvederm, and would like to know if this is a good filler for my facial wrinkles. Are the effects seen immediately with this filler or does it take time?
For extremely deep marionette lines, hyaluroic acid filler such as Juvederm may help. I also think combining it with deeper filler such as Radiesse often gives better result. A surgical procedure such as a lower face and neck lift to sharpen the jaw line as well as dermabrading these facial lines may further augment the result.
