Treating your Hands

Do you remember those classic Palmolive ads featuring the ever-catty Madge the Manicurist (played by actress Jan Miner)? In the commercials, Madge was always telling women how terrible their hands looked — and how much Palmolive Dish Soap would help.


Certainly Madge was on to something. We spend so much time treating the face, but the hands tend to be overlooked even though they are one of the most visible parts of the body. Over time, loss of volume in the hands can leave skin looking thin and wrinkled, often revealing unsightly tendons and veins.

Luckily, we’ve made tremendous advancements since the days of Madge and her Palmolive secret.  The FDA approval of Radiesse for use in the hands is one advancement we are thrilled about!


Radiesse injections immediately re-plump and replenish volume to the back of the hands to provide a supple and youthful appearance instantly. Placed beneath the skin, Radiesse raises the skin level so that tendons, joints and veins lose their prominence. Radiesse provides instant and durable long lasting results.

Here at Spokane Dermatology we know firsthand about the results of Radiesse, because our own Dr. Werschler administered the clinical trials that resulted in FDA approval.

“This is one of the most effective, yet simplest fillers I’ve worked with in my 25 years of injecting dermal fillers.” Dr. Werschlersaid about the process to gain FDA approval, “we can deliver this product to the back of the hand through one tiny injection port with virtually no discomfort and rarely any bruising.”

Radiesse, provides an immediate volumizing effect and can help to reduce the prominence of tendons and veins in the hands, delivering smooth, natural-looking results that can last up to 1 year. By providing a scaffolding for collagen-building, the body’s own collagen interweaving into this structure keeps the skin feeling softly natural and smooth, giving it a more youthful and natural look.

The great thing about Radiesse hands is that it can be combined with other procedures like laser and cream treatments to refinish the surface of the skin on your hands.  An inside/outside dual approach, and here at Spokane Dermatology, we have all the expertise and products to get you the absolute best results for great looking hands.
