Hand Rejuvenation

For most people, hands display signs of aging much faster than any other body part. Even if their faces and skin look young, their hands can express clear telltale signs of their age. As people grow older, their hands develop winkles, become veiny, and get damaged from exposure to the sun.

For people looking to rejuvenate their hands, there are several techniques which are very effective in improving the quality of their skin, decreasing wrinkles and restoring volume.

When Should Someone Consider Hand Rejuvenation?

People whose hands display noticeable signs of aging should consider rejuvenation. Here are some signs which indicate that you might need hand rejuvenation:

  • Prominent tendons and veins due to loss of volume in skin and tissue
  • Wrinkled and thin hands
  • Age spots and blemishes
  • Change in color and tone of skin

How Can Hands Be Rejuvenated?

When people look for effective hand rejuvenation, one major issue that needs to be taken care of is the loss in volume of soft tissue. In most cases, dermal fillers and natural fat grafting act as effective methods in restoring this volume.

Hand Rejuvenation Using Dermal Fillers

This technique is becoming increasingly popular among people who are looking to improve the volume of their hands when it has been affected by age and sun exposure. This method has very few complications and creates very satisfying results.

Dermal fillers result in giving the hands a more youthful appearance by increasing the volume of the skin, decreasing the appearance of wrinkles and prominent veins. Using dermal fillers also encourages the production of collagen in the skin, which results in an increase in skin volume and elasticity and prolongs the effectiveness of the treatment.

Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive and affordable method that helps rejuvenate hands. Injection of a filler requires very little time to perform. The dermal filler used should be hypoallergenic, non-toxic, and non-irritating, making it completely compatible with the patient’s body.

We offer several different kinds of dermal fillers, and we will recommend the right option for the results you’re looking for.

Fat Grafting for Hand Rejuvenation

Fat transfer, or fat grafting, is a technique that helps provide excellent aesthetic outcomes for patients who are seeking rejuvenation of their hands. This technique involves transferring a small amount of fat into the patient’s hands from another part of their body, like their inner thigh.

Harvested fat cells are injected into the hand through small incisions made on the back. The hand is then gently massaged to smooth out the contours so the fat can settle in spaces around the veins and bones on the back of the hand. Recovery is quick, and results can last for a long period of time.
