Hand rejuvenation treatments target contour depressions, scars, folds, and wrinkles as the smoothing Radiesse gel fills out the skin, resulting in younger-looking hands. Our treatments also stimulate collagen production, meaning you’ll enjoy the benefits of your hand rejuvenation much longer than comparable treatments – up to one year of results!
The Hand Rejuvenation Procedure & What To Expect
The best method for hand rejuvenation comes down to a quick, five-minute procedure that delivers lasting results – with no surgery required. An experienced Donaldson Plastic Surgery team member injects Radiesse gel (small calcium hydroxyapatite particles) into the back of the hand using a small needle in several locations. Followed by a brief hand massage to even out the product, you’ll instantly notice a difference in how your hands feel.
While this treatment is open to all men and women over the age of 18, we will typically consider you a good candidate if you have age spots, noticeable veins and/or thinning/wrinkled skin on your hands. Hand rejuvenation isn’t usually the first place people look when we look to combat the apparent signs of aging. This is an ideal treatment for patients who are reminded of their age every time they look down at their hands. If the appearance of your hands feels like it is “giving you away”, or feels like it doesn’t match with how young you feel, hand rejuvenation would be a great treatment for you.
Non-Surgical Hand Treatments Recovery Time
Because our hand rejuvenation treatment requires zero surgery, you’ll enjoy little-to-no recovery time after your appointment. Some side effects may occur, but they typically clear up quickly and you’ll be ready to go within 24 hours.
Side Effects of Hand Rejuvenation Treatments
The most common side effects some patients may experience include redness, swelling, and bruising around the injection site(s).
Primary Causes of Aging In Hands
One of the main reasons our hands can age faster than the rest of our bodies is that they’re nearly always exposed. As we age, the muscles in our hands become smaller, fat pads decrease, and the skin thins. In some cases, bone density lessens over time. Combine years of sun exposure with aging skin and you may experience older, almost “skeletal” like hands.
The Difference Between Professional Injections & OTC Creams
Over-the-counter hand rejuvenation creams tend to be substantially less effective when compared to professional treatments. They’re unable to restore the way hands look and feel, specifically when it comes to larger veins and visible tendons. Professional hand rejuvenation injections, like Radiesse, are stronger than OTC creams. They also last much longer (up to one year) and are much more precise in terms of targeting problem areas on the hands.
What Are Other Ways I Can Improve Signs of Aging on the Hands?
Other common procedures combined with hand rejuvenation is the removal of aging spots and sun spots with Broadband Light (BBL) laser therapy. Ultherapy or Halo can tighten crepey skin, and both procedures are customized to your unique skin concerns.
