Paparazzi Seem To Be Obsessed With Photographing Celebs' Less Than Pretty Veiny Hands
Paris Hilton. Angelina Jolie. Meg Ryan.
These celebrities share something we also share-----veiny hands and veiny arms.
We are a bit sensitive about our own hands, because the paparazzi for some reason, think it's cute or fun to point out whatever part of a woman's body that isn't perfect.
And the British press, like the Daily Mail, really enjoy revealing all the sinewy hands and arms they can find. Today, the photogs pick on poor Paris Hilton.
This is so ridiculous! Are women supposed to feel ashamed because their hands and arms show more veins than others?
Well, apparently, the paparazzi seem to think so.
We're not sure exactly what causes some women to have veiny hands and veiny arms. It probably has something to do with genetics and/or a strong work-out routine, or slim build.
We can say for ourselves, that we have always had skinny arms and slender hands. We also have used small weights to exercise our arms for years now, and continue to do so.
We haven't gone for hand rejuvenation, but darn it, it DOES exist!
We've heard about injecting filler into the backs of hands to re-volumize the lost fat, but no....we haven't gone there, and apparently, neither has Paris, Angelina, or Meg.
Look at the tidbit we found on RealSelf.com by NYC Dermatologic Surgeon Nelson Novick, MD:
Hand Rejuvenation: Beating Those Bulging Blood Vessels and Stringy Tendons
"Even if your face looks great, bulging blood vessels and prominent stringy-looking tendons on the back of your hands can betray your age. Sure, you could fade brown spots and remove small growths from the hands, but up to not that long ago, there was little that could be done to otherwise improve them. Happily nowadays that's no longer true.
The safest and most effective means in my opinion is to revolumize the backs of the hands, i.e. to restore the volume lost over time mostly due to wasting away of the fatty tissue that once masked the underlying veins and tendons.
Bulky hyaluronic volumizing materials, such as Juverderm Ultra Plus and Perlane have been used successfully to accomplish this. However, my favorite material for replenishing lost volume in the hands and for achieving a smooth and even result is Radiesse.
Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite, a bone-like material that provides more volume per syringe and lasts considerably longer in this location than its hyaluronic acid counterparts."
The procedure is actually quite simple. A mixture of Radiesse and a bit of lidocaine (a local numbing agent) is injected between the tendony spaces on the backs of the hands and then literally molded like clay into place."
