It’s your hands!

Your hands are often the first place to show signs of aging.  Thanks to repeated muscle movements, thin skin, and hard use, our hands are asked to carry a heavy burden.  To make matters worse, the hands are often treated as an afterthought in the typical skin care regimen.  Think back to the last time you slathered moisturizing cream on your hands, or treated them to a medical grade anti-aging treatment.

If you’re afraid that your hands are making you look older, then it’s time to schedule a consultation with The Langdon Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, located in Guilford, Connecticut.

Founded by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Langdon, The Langdon Center specializes in youth-enhancing treatments designed to minimize the appearance of sun damage and wrinkles.  To improve the appearance of aged hands, Dr. Langdon uses Radiesse, an FDA-approved cosmetic dermal filler made of calcium-based microspheres.  These particles create a natural gel, which is then injected into the hands.

The main reason why Radiesse is so successful in improving the appearance of the hands is because it focuses on volumization and not smoothing out wrinkles.  Because the skin on the hands is so thin, it often reveals aging wrinkles and prominent veins. In order to counteract this effect, Radiesse works to add instant volume to the hands, thus obscuring aging features like veins, wrinkles, and creases.  The end result is total rejuvenation far more than you can get from any wrinkle cream!

A typical treatment can take as little as 15 minutes; results can be seen immediately. The results from your Radiesse treatment generally last between one to two years.  Side effects are extremely mild, and are typically limited to slight bruising, swelling, and redness.  These side effects usually disappear after a few days.
