Your hands can either give away your true age—or convince people that you’re as young as you say. If you want to restore the smooth fullness that your hands had when you were younger, look no further than hand contouring. Located in Montclair, NJ, New Jersey Plastic Surgery® is pleased to offer hand contouring to the residents in and around Bloomfield, Essex County, Morristown and the surrounding communities.
What Is Contour?
With our non-surgical hand contour techniques, we can restore fullness and smoothness to the skin on your hands, taking years off their appearance. As part of hand contouring, we combine our experience, skill and artistry with Radiesse®, the only dermal filler that has received FDA approval for use on the hands. Radiesse® immediately adds volume while stimulating increased collagen production, leading to toned, plump skin for a year or more.
The Best Candidates for Hand Contour
Strong candidates have lost skin volume, tightness, and elasticity in the hands, and they wish to restore the tone and fullness of their younger years. Individuals also should have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure and be in general good health without a history of bleeding disorders or severe allergies.
Planning Your Contour Procedure
During your consultation, we will examine your hands, explain how hand contouring works, answer any questions you may have and customize your treatment for your aesthetic goals.
Preparing for Your Contour Treatment
Depending on your case, you may be asked to stop taking blood thinners for one week prior to the procedure. If you wish, we can administer lidocaine with the Radiesse® to minimize discomfort. However, many patients find this unnecessary since we apply a topical numbing cream.
The Contour Procedure
During the procedure, Radiesse® will be injected precisely at strategic points along your hands to smooth out wrinkles and folds and restore youthful volume. The process takes less than 30 minutes.
How Much Does Contour Cost?
The cost for hand contour varies for each patient depending on the treatment goals, extent of change desired and other factors. For your convenience, we accept cash, check, Visa®, Master®Card, American Express® and Discover®. Financing options are available through CareCredit® and AlphaeonTM.
Avoid exposing your hands to sunlight or other potential irritants. Most patients notice an improvement in appearance immediately after the procedure, with the effects lasting for a year or more.
Getting Back to Normal Following Hand Contour
Since no sedation is used, you may resume most daily activities immediately after treatment. You should try to avoid strenuous activities for the remainder of the day.
