WHAT IS HAND REJUVENATION?
First there was the facelift, buttock lift, eye lift and breast lift. Now, there is the “hand lift.” As you get older, your hands lose volume, fat and elasticity. The fatty layer of the hand disappears, so the skin is more translucent and shriveled, and you see underlying structures like bones, tendons and veins. Environmental factors also play a major role in aging hands. Even though your hands receive as much sun exposure as your face, they are usually less protected.
HOW CAN THE HANDS BE REJUVENATED?
Dermal fillers when done by a surgeon who has advanced knowledge of the human hand anatomy can help repair the underlying structure of the skin and replace lost volume. These dermal fillers such as Juvederm or Radiesse can be used to restore the collagens in hands to a more youthful state when injected under the skin in a simple outpatient procedure, with no downtime required.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR HAND REJUVENATION TREATMENTS?
People who wish to reduce the signs of aging on their hands, restore lost volume, and improve the tone and texture of skin in their hands, may be good candidates for hand rejuvenation treatments. It is also very popular with the Brides to be.
HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR HAND REJUVENATION TREATMENTS?
If you are having dermal filler injections, you should avoid taking aspirin and products that contain ibuprofen, St. John’s Wort, high doses of vitamin E supplements and other blood thinners (unless medically necessary) for one week prior to treatment in order to minimize the risk of bruising. You should also avoid red wine and multivitamins for two days prior to treatment.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING THE HAND REJUVENATION TREATMENT?
The length of the procedure will vary depending on the treatment. Minor treatments with dermal fillers may take less than an hour to complete. Topical or local numbing is used for hand rejuvenation treatments. Every procedure is different, so you will receive detailed post- operative instructions for your specific needs. In general, patients report little to no discomfort from hand rejuvenation treatments and they can resume normal activities within 24 hours after their procedure.
