Dear all, hope you are staying safe in these difficult for America times: first, the dreaded COVID, and now riots. My heart goes on to all affected by the recent events. A couple of days ago I had a phone call from a potential customer named Catherine. She was trying to find out if I was a legitimate seller and while we were talking, she asked about Profhilo filler. Empowered by my knowledge, I started passionately explaining about Profhilo’s features, the protocol, the Bio Aesthetic Points… only to find out that she was going to use it not for the face, but for hands.
This made me realize that it’s been a while since I’ve spoken about hands rejuvenation. And that I’ve been focusing mostly on face and body treatments. Understanding how important it is to keep the hands looking young and plump, I consider this unforgivable.
Why? Because no part of the body tells the story of our age more than our hands!!!
We cook, clean, care for kids, pets and elders and our hands are always exposed. As a result, the skin thins, making veins look more prominent. Besides, failing to apply an SPF to hands as regularly as we do to the face makes them more susceptible to sunspots and aging. Moreover, it’s easy to disguise the signs of aging on the face with make-up, but you can’t do that with hands and that’s why they give out our true age.
In 2016 the FDA approved the very first filler for hands rejuvenation – Radiesse. It’s not a hyaluronic acid filler. Radiesse is made from Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHa), a substance that can be found in our bones.
Then in 2019, the FDA approved for hands rejuvenation the very first hyaluronic acid (HA) filler – Restylane Lyft.
Although these are the only two fillers approved for this indication, there are many others that can be successfully used to hide the bones and tendons visible on your hands and fill in the wrinkles on your forearms. Having done some thorough research, I’ve compiled a list of the fillers used most often for hands rejuvenation. As a result, Profhilo – the filler my potential customer Catherine was asking about – is present on that list:
~ Restylane Lyft (HA)
~ Radiesse (CaHa)
~ Profhilo (HA)
All of them can be bought from my store. But how do you choose the right one? In my opinion, the choice depends on two things:
- The goal, be it a skin rejuvenation or volume increase
- The budget: in general, each hand requires approximately 2 ml of a HA filler and in case with Radiesse – a 1.5 ml syringe per hand.
Concluding this post, I would like to remind you that eliminating signs of aging on your hands is not a trend, but necessity: by making them look their best, you help yourself look and feel much younger and more confident. So, why delay? Choose a filler from the above list 👆 and rejuvenate your hands today! 🙌
