Radiesse for Hands: Procedure and Benefits

Aging affects the hands by accentuating veins and creating crepe-like skin due to loss of volume, hydration, and elasticity. Traditional treatments were invasive and had limited success, but cosmetic fillers have changed this. 

However, most fillers have a short duration of action. Hand rejuvenation aims to restore volume for a youthful appearance, though it’s challenging due to constant hand movement that accelerates filler degradation.

Advantages of Radiesse for Hand Rejuvenation

Radiesse fillers are composed of calcium hydroxylapatite, a biocompatible material found naturally in human bones and teeth. This characteristic ensures it is non-immunogenic, making it a preferred choice for hand rejuvenation. Since its FDA approval, Radiesse has been highly successful in restoring volume to aging hands. Its opaque, white appearance effectively conceals veins and tendons, while its ideal viscosity, smoothness, and elasticity address aging signs with precision.

Injection Procedure: Professional Tips

To enhance patient comfort and adjust filler properties, Radiesse can be mixed with 0.5ml of 2% lidocaine before injection. Injecting Radiesse requires careful placement away from veins and tendons. Typically, injections are administered along an imaginary line from the dorsal wrist crease to the metacarpophalangeal joints, adjusted based on the injector’s assessment.

For optimal results, ensure the patient is seated with hands extended and supported. Use smooth forceps or fingers to tent the skin, creating a separation from underlying veins and tendons. Inject Radiesse using a 27-gauge needle in small boluses (0.2-0.5ml each) across the hand dorsum.


Clinical experience highlights limitations of other fillers like fat, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, which often last only a few months. In contrast, Radiesse stands out for its opacity and longevity, typically maintaining results for six months or more. These attributes make Radiesse an ideal choice for effective and enduring hand rejuvenation.
