Hand Rejuvenation

27 Procedures ( View All )

A combination of thin skin, loss of fat, and constant sun exposure are reasons why hands are one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Fortunately, treatment options are available to restore skin quality and volume to create a more youthful looking hand. Hyaluronic acid (HA) filler can be placed superficially in the hand to reduce the “bony” appearance and create a softened and hydrated look. Our Sciton® BBL laser can also be used to reduce the appearance of sun damage, dark spots, and build collagen over time.

What filler is used in the hand?

Filler selection is important for the hand as it is a large area and the right amount of volume (usually between 1-3 syringes per hand) is needed to make a difference. Typically, Restylane® Lyft and Juvéderm® VOLUMA™ are go to products.

What can I expect during my appointment?

A thorough consultation with our providers will help determine which treatment or combination of treatments will help you reach your goals. Typically, the hands do not require numbing cream as filler placement is quick and relatively painless. If BBL laser is also recommended, this can be done at the same appointment or staggered. There is no downtime with either procedure and sunscreen needs to be worn consistently following the laser for an entire week. The treatment may take around 30-60 minutes and results will be seen immediately. As hyaluronic acid attracts water, the filler will improve over time and create a more contoured even appearance. Over the next several days the filler may swell and takes approximately 2 weeks to see full results and symmetry.

What does maintenance look like?

Filler results can be seen immediately, and laser results will be seen within a couple of days. Hand filler typically lasts 12-18 months. 3-6 laser treatments are recommended to achieve optimal results and maintenance should be scheduled every 3-6 months to ensure long term results. BBL treatments also help to stimulate collagen over time resulting in a more youthful appearance to the hands.
