WHAT IS HAND REJUVENATION?
Just as our faces begin to show our age, our hands can as well. In fact, the skin on your hands is much more likely to be exposed to the harmful rays of the sun, harsh chemicals, and friction than the skin on your face. The resulting wrinkles, lost volume, and prominent veins and tendons can make your hands look old well before their time. There’s no need to suffer self-consciousness about hands that look older than they really are.
Hand rejuvenation is a nonsurgical technique that restores lost volume in the back the hands with a dermal filler, instantly plumping the skin for a natural, smooth appearance. Over time, it also stimulates your body to produce its own collagen, for long-lasting results that will keep your hands looking as youthful as you feel.
Dermal filler is injected under the skin to fill in areas of lost volume for an instantly plumped, smoother surface. The dermal filler used at Skin Clinic, FDA-approved Radiesse, also stimulates your body’s production of collagen to maintain the increased volume. Over time, the filler is absorbed, leaving just your own natural collagen.
Hand rejuvenation consists of quick injections under the skin—the appointment is usually short enough that you can schedule it over your lunch hour! Local anesthesia is used for your comfort during the procedure. You may experience mild swelling, bruising, or itching afterwards, but these side effects subside quickly.
The results of hand rejuvenation treatment can last up to a year or more.
While you should avoid strenuous activities immediately after hand rejuvenation, you should be able to resume most regular activities right away. Your skin may be sensitive to the sun for the first 24 hours; take care to avoid excessive sunlight and heat during this period.
