Do you feel like your hands give away your age?
Are you embarrassed to let people see your hands? Do you notice that bones and veins are much more prominent in your hands? If so, you may be a great candidate for hand rejuvenation one of our board-certified plastic surgeons at Beautify Cosmetic & Surgical Clinic.
What is Hand Rejuvenation?
As we age, the skin on the top of our hands begins to thin out considerably. Additionally, when we are young there is a defined, plump layer of fat below the skin of the hand that gives a healthy, full look to the hands. Over time this layer of fat starts to wither away. Add in sun exposure, genetics, and lifestyle choices and the end result is hands with thin, wrinkled, loose skin. Due to the loss of the fatty layer – veins, tendons, bones, and joints begin to stick out, leaving you with hands that, frankly, look old.
Hand rejuvenation is an extremely effective procedure that involves injecting dermal fillers below the skin on the top of the hands to replace the layer of fat that has wasted away. We then massage the filler evenly throughout the top of the hands to smooth out wrinkles, tighten the skin, and camouflage the prominent bones and veins that had become noticeable in the first place.
Am I a good candidate for hand rejuvenation?
You may be a good candidate for a hand rejuvenation procedure if:
- You have loose, wrinkled skin on the top of your hands
- You feel your hands look bony or veiny, or your knuckles are sticking out
- People have commented that your hands look old
- You find yourself hiding your hands from the view of others because you are embarrassed of the way they look
You will see the successful results of your hand rejuvenation immediately after your procedure. It is common to experience some mild swelling and possibly some light bruising a day or two after your injections. This swelling and bruising will disappear in a few days.
The fillers used by physicians at Beautify Cosmetic and Surgical Clinic typically last nine months to a year. It is a good idea to adopt a scheduled maintenance program should you want your results to remain constant. We recommend that our hand rejuvenation patients come in for a touch-up every 9 months, or sooner if you notice the filler is absorbing.
