"The outcome depends very much on the surgeon's experience and skill. "The whole appointment took less than an hour. First the hand is marked up to show where the injections will go. Next a local anaesthetic is applied., "The marked areas are injected with Radiesse, which takes less than 15 minutes. Two vials of Radiesse were needed and the total cost was £800.

"Now my hands and face look at least 20 years younger and I could not be more pleased."
