The recent approval in 2015 of Radiesse for injection into the hand by the FDA has spurred an increase in interest among patients and clinicians in nonsurgical hand rejuvenation using fillers. Application of the same techniques used to treat the face to the dorsum of the hands does not account for the unique nature of the skin and underlying anatomy, and can lead to suboptimal outcomes and an increased risk of adverse events such as the formation of nodules. Here, the authors discuss dilution strategies and injection techniques for hand rejuvenation using Radiesse for optimal patient safety and aesthetic outcomes.

Volume restoration using filler in the dorsum of the hand is a simple and effective procedure to improve wrinkles and to hide veins and tendons. Currently, Calcium-Hydroxyapatite (CaHA)-filler is the ...
Calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) is a common material for vocal fold injection augmentation. Durability is variable, and factors involved in implant longevity are not understood. Animal models of osteopo...
Binding of calcium - and small molecules in general - often induce conformational changes in large molecules and complexes. The degree and type of change varies, but the resulting shift in spec...
The three human plastins (L-plastin, T-plastin, and I-plastin) are important regulatory Ca-binding proteins that belong to the family of actin-binding proteins. Plastins are involved in the regulation...
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of Radiesse® Injectable Dermal Filler for hand rejuvenation.
Non-ablative and ablative devices are the most commonly used minimally-invasive treatments for skin rejuvenation. Current devices on the market for rejuvenation include the lasers such as ...
This study will be a prospective study of patients who undergo platelet-rich therapy (PRT) for facial rejuvenation at NYU Langone Medical Center. PRT has been increasingly used for wound h...
This is set as prospective clinical trial to correlate histologically and radiologically the performance of four different bone grafts (synthetic hydroxyapatite alone, synthetic hydroxyapa...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of nanohydroxyapatite associated with low potency laser therapy in eliminating or reducing dentin hypersensitivity in a randomized placebo-...
Membrane-associated calcium-binding proteins that are characterized by N-terminal EF HAND MOTIFS and a STERILE ALPHA MOTIF. They function as sensors of ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM calcium levels and translocate from the ER to the plasma membrane to activate CALCIUM CHANNELS in response to intracellular calcium depletion.
A family of intracellular calcium-sensing proteins found predominately in NEURONS and PHOTORECEPTOR CELLS. They contain EF HAND MOTIFS and undergo conformational changes upon calcium-binding. Neuronal calcium-sensor proteins interact with other regulatory proteins to mediate physiological responses to a change in intracellular calcium concentration.
A family of highly acidic calcium-binding proteins found in large concentration in the brain and believed to be glial in origin. They are also found in other organs in the body. They have in common the EF-hand motif (EF HAND MOTIFS) found on a number of calcium binding proteins. The name of this family derives from the property of being soluble in a 100% saturated ammonium sulfate solution.
Calcium-binding motifs composed of two helixes (E and F) joined by a loop. Calcium is bound by the loop region. These motifs are found in many proteins that are regulated by calcium.
Calcium-binding proteins that are found in DISTAL KIDNEY TUBULES, INTESTINES, BRAIN, and other tissues where they bind, buffer and transport cytoplasmic calcium. Calbindins possess a variable number of EF-HAND MOTIFS which contain calcium-binding sites. Some isoforms are regulated by VITAMIN D.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
In order to become availible to pateints, drugs need to undergo a number of phases of clinical trials to test their efficacy and safty and to then be authorised by the drug approval organistion in each respective country. This is the FDA in the USA and N...
