Hand fillers for anti-age-related hand rejuvenation treatment: obtain your youthful-looking hands

Hand rejuvenation with fillers and how you can give back life to your hands.

Hands are more prone to aging symptoms than any other body area, except for the face. However, the science of hand rejuvenation has not advanced as much as cosmetic operations for the face.

Patients have a wide range of alternatives for obtaining a healthy, youthful facial look, but limited hand rejuvenation options for dealing with old hands.

Thankfully, this is changing. A few specific products that doctors might use to enhance the appearance of aging hands have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). If you’re considering getting hand rejuvenation therapy, it’s crucial to understand the process and potential dermal filler categories.

Our hands experience some visible changes as we age, frequently much earlier than other body parts. The skin of the hands is prone to sun damage, just like exposed skin elsewhere on the body, but what is more apparent is how they start to alter their shape. Age-related volume loss in the hands can highlight veins, tendons, and bones, giving them an almost “skeletal” aspect.

The skin ages more quickly on the backs of our hands because they are exposed to the sun more than other regions of our body. As a result, there is volume loss, decreased skin elasticity, thinning skin, greater vein and tendon exposure, and a thin, malnourished appearance. Volume loss, wrinkles, and the appearance of unattractive veins and tendons can all be improved quickly, minimally invasively, and without any downtime using injectable fillers for the hands.

One of the most well-liked current trends in aesthetic medicine is the treatment of aging symptoms on other regions of the body (apart from the face), including the drooping skin on the knees and thighs, crepey skin on the hands, and wrinkles on the chest.

By injecting fillers into the dorsum (backside) of the hands, our board-certified dermatologist and skin care professionals produce visible improvement in just one hand rejuvenation treatment, giving the hands plumper, smoother, and noticeably more youthful appearance. When the dermal fillers are injected, they fill in the gaps that aging causes, instantly volumizing, rejuvenating, and elevating the area while yet retaining a natural-looking appearance.

How do hand fillers work to reduce lost volume in the hands?

Age-related changes in the hands can be successfully treated using hand fillers. To restore the tissue that has been lost with aging, a chemical is injected into the backs of the hands. Dermal fillers are the most popular kind of hand fillers; they contain a gel made of elements that are naturally present in the body.

Dermal fillers come in a few different varieties. Depending on your unique hand rejuvenation needs and professional preferences, your doctor will advise one over the other. The type of dermal filler the doctor has the most familiarity with will frequently be the one that produces the best results.

Types of dermal fillers


younger looking handsThe first FDA-approved hand filler, Radiesse, developed by Merz Pharmaceuticals GmbH, is frequently used to replenish volume lost in aged hands. Calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance present in bone and teeth, serves as the foundation for Radiesse. Radiesse’s opacity and color, in addition to creating volume, can assist in hiding veins and tendons.

Restylane Lyft

Although Restylane Lyft has a long history of usage as a facial filler, the FDA only recently approved its use as a dermal filler on the hands’ backs. Based on the findings of clinical research that demonstrated Restylane was a safe and practical treatment option for individuals wishing to restore volume to their hands.

Hyaluronic acid fillers

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can reduce creases and wrinkles and give the skin a plump, youthful appearance. These fillers are thought to be secure, with only minor adverse effects. The type of filler, where you live, how many vials are used, and your provider’s costs will all affect the overall cost of your hand rejuvenation procedures. Due to its adaptability, efficacy, and lack of related side effects, hyaluronic acid is a preferred option among injectable fillers.

The body naturally has hyaluronic acid, a form of sugar, in its joints, skin, and connective tissue.

Recovery process the post-procedure recovery phase lasts only a few days for many people, who may then resume their regular activities. It is advisable to avoid intense activities for about 48 hours following the treatment since you can suffer some swelling and because doing so boosts blood flow, which can prolong the inflammation.

This acid may bind up to 1,000 times its volume in water, making it a humectant that can trap moisture. Its capacity to draw in and hold water enhances the volumizing impact while also adding hydration, making it a tempting treatment as a dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid fillers are injected into the skin using a needle or cannula to enhance volume and plumpness, restore lost volume, and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. Immediately following therapy, effects become apparent.

It’s common to ignore the skin on our hands. Why is it so crucial to ensure their well-being?

We frequently utilize our hands. Just consider how we shake hands with individuals when we welcome them or when you hand someone something. We want the appearance of our hands to leave a good first impression as others notice our nails, rings, and jewelry!

What is the procedure for hand fillers?

Hand rejuvenation using hand fillersreally is a pretty easy process. The back of the hand is quickly injected with dermal fillers, and the hand is then massaged to spread the filler out. Except for some tightness after, there’s little to no discomfort. Your day won’t be disrupted in the least, and you won’t feel in any way constrained.

Who would make a good candidate for hand rejuvenation?

The best course of action would be to arrange a consultation at VIDA with our team to ascertain whether you’re a good candidate. We believe this type of hand rejuvenation treatment can help anyone whose hands’ backs have lost volume and who wants to reduce vein visibility. It really produces a very realistic-looking outcome.

How long does it take to see hand rejuvenation results?

Your hands will immediately improve. Also, the swelling subsided the following day, and you will notice that your hands are no longer thin and venous. While other people may not be too concerned, many patients are worried about the aging effects they see in their hands. This makes sense because we frequently communicate with our hands, which are always in our line of sight and the line of sight of those we engage with.

Soft-tissue atrophy is a normal part of aging, and volume loss in the hands frequently becomes noticeable, giving them a skeletonized, hollowed-out appearance. Here at VIDA, we use a topical anesthetic during treatments, which are completed in office and only last a few minutes. A pleasant, more youthful appearance will result from the added volume.
