With new tools, improvements in technique and consumer confidence in dermal fillers are fueling the popularity of hand rejuvenation treatments. Sun-mottled, wrinkled, veiny hands shout one’s true age despite how young the face might look. Surgical hand-lifts are not an option, but aesthetic practitioners can subtly hide telltale signs of hand aging with a range of products and procedures.
Two main factors have led to an increase in patients requesting hand rejuvenation. First, patients are now familiar with devices and fillers for the face and feel comfortable and confident with them. Secondly, a plethora of new types of treatments can quickly, safely and effectively restore volume, smoothness and softness in the hands. Chemical peels, intense pulsed light (IPL) and laser therapies can improve sun damage and uneven skin tone, while dermal fillers can help remedy soft tissue loss.
Many of the dermal fillers routinely used in the face are also effective for hands, but currently only two product have FDA approval specifically for hands. The first, Radiesse, a calcium hydroxyapatite dermal filler, was approved in June 2015 to treat volume loss in the hands. The second, Restalyne Lyft (our office carries), became the first hyaluronic acid filler to gain FDA approval for hand rejuvenation in May 2018.
Typical hand rejuvenation patients are those who have successfully received filler for facial concerns and want to similarly improve the appearance of volume loss in their hands. Hands start to lose volume due to fat atrophy around age 40, leading to thinning skin, fine lines, and bulging veins. As one of the most exposed-to-the-elements body parts, hands are more likely to have photo damage.
For pigmentation complaints, our office recommends topical tretinoin, chemical peels, or foto-facials. For volume loss and general skin aging, we would suggest dermal fillers. This month, we are rolling out a new package. The Youthful Hands Package includes your dermal filler treatment, two photo rejuvenation treatments for pigmentation on the hands, and includes a FREE medical grade skin tightening and toning hand cream to help ensure a beautiful result for months to come! Schedule a consultation with Dr. Kjar to see if you are a candidate!
Vollure- Am I A Good Candidate?Vollure- Am I A Good Candidate? Candessa Medical Aesthetics Candessa Medical Aesthetics
Write your story… Without parentheses.
Over time, your skin loses elasticity, which contributes to moderate to severe lines that form around the nose and the mouth. While serums and creams work on the skin’s surface, Juvederm’s Vollure will add volume to the skin to smooth these lines and folds, to help give you the subtle, long-lasting results you want!
What causes parentheses lines?
Parentheses lines are known as “static” wrinkles. Static wrinkles are lines that appear even when your face is at rest. This happens over time as your skin loses some of it’s building blocks (hyaluronic acid and collagen), that give your skin its structure.
Can your natural lips lose volume?
Yes, over time, your lips may lose volume and become thin. However, many people seek out lip augmentations with injectable fillers, because they naturally have thin lips and simply desire more fullness.
What is Juvederm Vollure? Where can it be used?
Juvederm Vollure is an injectable form of hyaluronic acid that is used to soften moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to add volume to thin lips. By adding volume to lines and wrinkles, it produces a beautifully subtle and long-lasting result for up to 18 months! The original Juvederm, while it is a fantastic, tried and true product, is proven to last only 1 year.
We are excited to add Juvederm Vollure to our already impressive line of injectables. We want you to experience it the way we have. That’s why we are offering $50 OFF each syringe of Juvederm Vollure purchased this month! Call in and schedule a consultation with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kjar to see if you are a good candidate for Vollure.
What Injectable Is Right For My Age?What Injectable Is Right For My Age? Candessa Medical Aesthetics Candessa Medical Aesthetics
We sat down with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kjar to learn more about the injectables he recommends based off of your age, and the anti-aging concerns he’s able to treat for each demographic.
What injectables are age appropriate for 20-30’s, 30-40’s, 40’s-50’s, 50-60’s+?
Botox works very well on facial lines and can help prevent lines from forming if it is kept up. Lip fullness can be enhanced by Juvederm filler.
All of the above work in this age group.
Facial atrophy and volume loss are starting in some people this age and deep fillers (Voluma & Sculptra) start to be beneficial and helpful
All of the above (30-40‘s) work in this age group.
Usually in this group more people are dealing with sagging and need to consider facelift
In this group, combinations of surgical care and non-surgical treatments are beneficial, including treatments such as facial spot treatment with chemical peels and laser treatments.
What wrinkles (dynamic and static) would benefit from injectables?
Wrinkles of your skin are the result of aging of your skin. The two prominent fibers of your skin are collagen and elastin.
Collagen is the tough fiber that gives your skin strength and this is found mostly in your skin layer called the dermis. Elastin is the fiber that can expand and contract when pulled on. It is like a new rubber band. As you age, your elastic fibers become brittle or breakdown with exposure to sun and dryness and they are also effected by smoking.
Proper care of your skin with moisturizers, prophylactic sunblocks and therapeutic free-radical scavengers like vitamin C serums will maintain and to some degree reverse damages done to your skin by these attacking agents which are damaging the elastin fiber.
In general there are 2 categories of wrinkles you can have. These are static and dynamic wrinkles.
Static wrinkles arise from the breakdown of the elastin fibers of your skin and leave the skin wrinkled (fine or coarse wrinkles) when your face is not moving or is not animated. Superficial fillers work best on this kind of superficial line. Another cause of static lines is a loss of volume to your face either from weight loss or aging. A deep filler like Sculptra or Voluma will help you with this kind of aging.
(Before and After of Sculptra)
Dynamic wrinkles are not present on your face until you use your muscles of expression which create these lines when you frown, smile, cry, etc. They disappear when your face is not animated. They are caused by the action of your muscles under your skin upon your skin and they are usually at a right angle or 90 degrees opposite from the direction of the muscle movement. Botox and other paralyzing injectables work best on this kind of wrinkle or line.
At what point does someone need a facelift instead of injectables?
If you have loose skin and hanging in your jowl or neck area, injectables will not correct these problems.

We Ask Dr. Kjar About KybellaWe Ask Dr. Kjar About Kybella Candessa Medical Aesthetics Candessa Medical Aesthetics
Kybella has become a buzzword in the aesthetic injectables world in recent years, but some confusion remains as to what Kybella does and how it works. We sat down with Dr. Kjar to answer some of these questions. Save $250 OFF your first two Kybella treatments if you book your first treatment before February 28, 2018.
Why did you choose to bring on Kybella in to your practice?
I do liposuction of fat under the chin in the neck often, but I chose to bring Kybella on in my practice to give my patients another option for fatty pockets in that area. It is a more permanent, non-surgical method to treat fatty necks.
What is Kybella doing for the double-chin area?
Kybella is an injectable solution that dissolves the fat cells in the area treated. It is injected in small increments spread over a grid pattern on the neck. It creates a temporary swelling of the area and will give some discomfort like a warm to hot sensation, like you have from mild jalapeño pepper for a day or two. This is caused by the Kybella interacting with the fatty tissue. This is a well studied form of mesotherapy.
How many treatments until your patients are seeing results?
Kybella treatments are done about a month and a half apart allowing enough swelling and healing to occur so that the next treatment works well. It usually requires 4 treatments to see the optimal result. Each treatment gets rid of some of the fat, and will give an improved look. But be patient, the swelling after the treatment will make you think: “Why did I do this?” However, you will be glad when you see the predictable changes that come from this treatment and enjoy permanent results.
What sort of down-time do your patients have?
Kybella injections don’t prevent you from doing many things, but you do want to take it easy for a day or two after the first injection. Avoid heavy exercising for a couple of days after. You’ll learn to adjust your activity after the first treatment. The “down time” is more social than physical. The swelling will possibly keep you from feeling comfortable in front of others who will ask you what you did. That subsides enough to hide with clothing or scarves after 2-3 days.
