What is Hand Rejuvenation with Dermal Fillers?
Our bodies are just as susceptible to the signs of ageing as our faces, yet the vast majority of time and money is spent on tackling facial issues such as wrinkles, lines, sagging skin and pigmentation – this can lead to a slightly ‘odd’ appearance of a youthful face but aged hands. Our hands are always on show and exposure to the sun makes them age more quickly.
Juvederm dermal filler injections can rejuvenate hands by replenishing lost volume. Dermal filler is a gel made from hyaluronic acid – a substance that occurs naturally in the skin. To resolve nuisance wrinkles or lost volume, it’s injected beneath the surface to plump up surrounding tissue.
Most patients find the procedure on their hands comfortable with very little pain. In addition to the use of ultra-fine needles, we apply a numbing cream to the hands. The procedure itself takes approximately 30 minutes.
Are there side effects?
Patients may experience a little swelling, redness, itchiness or bruising straight after treatment. In addition, patients are advised not to get hot straight after treatment and to avoid drinking alcohol, exercising or too much sun for the first 24 hours.
How long will it last?
Results will typically last around 12 months.
