Your hands are one of the first places to show age. Thinning skin as well as reduced elasticity and decreased collagen production can cause your hands to look older than other parts of your body, but Skin by Lovely is here to help. Residents of Santa Monica are turning to Radiesse to rejuvenate their hands.

What is Radiesse?

A subdermal implantation is used to reduce and eliminate lines and wrinkles, giving volume and fullness to your hands.

The Procedure

This quick and convenient treatment only takes between 30 to 40 minutes; it could be done on your lunch break. A topical numbing cream or local anesthetic is used to dull any uncomfortable sensations that may be experienced as a result of the injection.

Side Effects

Though the procedure is basically pain-free, some people may experience minor bruising, swelling, or redness on their hands. This will vanish within a few days. An ice pack may be used to reduce these symptoms.


The results of Radiesse are typically noticed immediately but do not reach their maximum effect until two to four weeks following treatment. Results usually last up to a year or even longer.
