Hand Rejuvenation with Dermal Fillers
What is hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers?
Hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers is a minimally invasive plastic surgery procedure to correct volume loss in the hands. Like the face, decreased collagen due to aging in the hands causes overly prominent veins and tendons. Radiesse® is the only FDA-approved injectable filler for hand rejuvenation, however, Juvederm® and other fillers may also be used.
In contrast to hand rejuvenation with fat transfer, injectable fillers have less associated recovery time as they are less invasive. Other treatment options like a laser hand rejuvenation procedure or intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment can correct surface skin blemishes like age spots/sun spots and brown spots from sun damage.
What cosmetic concerns does a hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers procedure treat?
- Aging Hands: Injectable fillers allow for strategic hand rejuvenation through volume augmentation and collagen stimulation.
Who is the ideal candidate for a hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers procedure?
The ideal candidate for hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers is in generally good health and does not smoke. Hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers is not recommended for those who smoke or those with allergies to any components of the injectable fillers.
What is the average recovery associated with a hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers procedure?
The average recovery following hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers is a few days. Visible bumps and lumps can be massaged out, and the hands will naturally soften within one to two weeks. Avoiding alcohol, heat, and strenuous exercise for a few days can aid recovery and reduce the risk of side effects.
What are the potential side effects of a hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers procedure?
Possible side effects following hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers include redness, nodules, swelling, pain, bumps/lumps, bleeding, bruising, infection, loss of sensation due to nerve damage, and asymmetry.
What can someone expect from the results of a hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers procedure?
The results of a hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers cosmetic procedure are immediately visible, but will improve as collagen production is stimulated. The results can last up to one year. Maintenance treatments are typically needed every six to nine months. Good skin care and limiting sun exposure will help to maintain results.
What is the average cost of a hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers procedure?
Hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers can cost anywhere from $700 to $2,500. The actual cost of a hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers is dependent upon location, board certified plastic surgeon, and length and involvement of the plastic surgery.
