Many people opt for hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers to improve the appearance of their hands. This cosmetic procedure aims to restore volume, reduce wrinkles, and minimize the visibility of veins and tendons that become more prominent with age. Dermal fillers effectively enhance the skin quality on the hands by adding volume and improving elasticity.
During a hand rejuvenation procedure, Dr. Elham Zarnegar DMSc, PA, injects dermal fillers into strategic areas of the hands. The most commonly used fillers for hand rejuvenation are hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the body that helps retain moisture and adds volume to the skin.
Radiesse is a type of dermal filler that can be used for hand rejuvenation. It is made of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a gel. Radiesse provides immediate volume and stimulates collagen production when injected into the hands, leading to longer-term improvements in the skin’s appearance.
The procedure is generally well-tolerated, and a topical anesthetic can be applied to minimize discomfort. The healthcare professional will carefully assess your hands and determine the appropriate areas for filler placement. The injections are typically placed along the back of the hands, targeting areas with more prominent volume loss and wrinkles.
The benefits of hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers include:
- Restoring volume: Dermal fillers can replenish lost volume in the hands, making them appear fuller and more youthful.
- Smoothing wrinkles: Fillers can help minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the hands.
- Conceal Visible Veins and Tendons: Fillers can reduce the visibility of prominent veins and tendons, giving the hands a smoother appearance.
- Improving skin quality: Hyaluronic acid-based fillers can improve skin texture and hydration, making the hands look softer and supple.
- Non-Invasive procedure: Hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers is a non-surgical alternative to more invasive procedures like hand lifts or fat transfers.
Hand rejuvenation results with dermal fillers are usually immediate, and you can typically resume your daily activities right after the procedure. The effects can last from several months to over a year, depending on the type of filler used and individual factors such as metabolism and lifestyle.
