With Restylane Lyft, Your Hands Won’t Give Away Your Age
Kalen Ashford, a Certified Physician Assistant at Dermatology & Laser Center of Charleston has authored this blog post to help you learn how you can improve the look of your hands and how Restylane Lyft is useful for this.
Do you hate the look of your hands? Feel they give away your actual age?
Most of us take care of the skin on our face with a combination of medical, cosmetic and pampering treatments. But many of us stop at our neck. Think about it; we’ve all seen women with beautiful, smooth and unlined faces looking 20 years younger than they are, yet they neglect areas such as the neck, décolletage and hands. Hands in particular, can give away your age more than any other body part because of constant exposure to the elements.
Years ago, the secret to having beautiful hands required wearing white gloves during the day, rubber gloves for dishwashing and cotton gloves with cream overnight. Quite unrealistic in 2018.
Hands are now a hot topic, as the FDA has recently approved a tried and true filler, Restylane Lyft [click this link to read about the Restylane family of fillers]. This is the first hyaluronic acid filler to be approved for an area other than the face.
While hands have been treated by advanced injectors for years utilizing a calcium-based filler, Radiesse, this new approval for Restylane Lyft gives us more tools to use when making our patients even more beautiful than they already are.
Advantages of Restylane Lyft for hands as compared to Radiesse
Both products are great options for hand rejuvenation by diminishing the appearance of prominent veins and tendons. Since Radiesse is a calcium-based filler it has a white opaque appearance and may be better for patients with thicker skin. Restylane Lyft is a clear product made of sugars that are naturally found in our skin and may be better suited for patients with thinner skin.
Understanding the nuances of the products and how they perform is our specialty. No two people have the same needs. We create a customized plan for each individual.
And when you feel your hands no longer give away your age, don’t forget your neck or décolletage. We will customize a treatment plan to help reduce double-chin, tighten and smooth those areas as well.
