TURNING BACK THE HANDS OF TIME IS NOW JUST AN INJECTION AWAY
If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then a person’s hands are the mirrors of one’s age. Hands never lie…until now.
Each year, Americans spend hundreds of millions of dollars on lotions, creams and salves designed to keep the face looking younger. And, thanks to modern medicine, many of these products work. People are fooled-that is, until they take a good look at the oft forgotten true test of a person’s age, the hands.
As the natural aging process occurs, the skin loses its elasticity and deteriorates. The tendons and vessels become prominent, resulting in old and worn-looking hands.
Once thought to be an unfortunate fact of life, today people are now turning to familiar treatment for a novel anti-aging solution…injections of fillers like Radiesse or fat transfers into the hands.
According to one Beverly Hills plastic doc, “Until recently, the emphasis was on keeping the face youthful, and the hands, which are just as visible, were typically ignored. Patients are now realizing the critical role hands play in their overall appearance and are seeking to turn back the clock so to speak. The use of products like Radiesse or fat transfers smoothes and fills out the skin, producing dramatically younger looking hands.”
Although Mother Blogger's hands could suck up a vat of Radiesse, the before and after picture on the left hasn't convinced Mother Blogger that it's worth her hard-earned Benjamins. If she started injecting her hands with plumpers, than she's got to plump up her sagging knees, her crumpled feet, her crow's feet, and alas, her gluteus maximus. Naw, for now she'll stick to having her body parts all age at the same rate.
How about you? Will you turn back the hands of time?
