Dermal Fillers: For Faces and Hands
- Posted on: Aug 8 2018
Our hands can give away our age, even when our face is youthful and radiant. This is because our hands are in the sun more than any other part of our body, other than maybe our faces. But how often do we remember to put sunscreen on our hands? Our hands work hard and can start to show their age due to UV damage and the natural loss of fat and connective tissue.
If you’re self-conscious about your hands, keep reading to learn about our hand rejuvenation techniques.
There are so many dermal fillers that work wonderfully for the little wrinkles that appear on the face. Did you know that these fillers can also do wonders for your aging hands? The prominent tendons, joints, and veins on your hands can disappear in as quickly as one appointment. Many fillers like Juvederm and BELOTERO BALANCE can be used to plump up the skin on the back of the hands, giving you youthful hands that don’t stand out from the rest of you. Imagine coming back from a lunch appointment with a pair of youthful hands!
The process is similar to fillers for the face. The area is numbed first so you have the most pleasant experience possible. Then, the filler is injected into the desired site through a small needle. There is generally little to no downtime for fillers, and the complications are few. In fact, fillers are more safe than other beautifying procedures. The filler chosen by your physician will depend on your specific concerns, so the exact treatment and follow-up may vary.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Besides the loss of fat in hands, other aging factors come from all the time our hands spend in the sun. UV damage is no joke. Laser treatments can help remove other signs of premature aging on the hands, such as uneven texture and sun spots.
Laser Skin treatments can help reverse the signs of:
- Sun damaged skin
- Pigmented lesions
- Scarring from accidents or mole removal
- Age spots
