Hand Rejuvenation Northern Virginia
We’re often so worried about wrinkles, lines, and sagging on our faces, that we completely forget about our aging hands and the appearance they give off.
However, if you’ve noticed that your hands appear bony and look much older than your face and body, hand rejuvenation may be right for you.
If you’d like to learn more about this non-surgical anti-aging procedure, here’s everything you need to know about hand rejuvenation with filler for aging hands in Northern Virginia.
Why Have Hand Rejuvenation with Filler in Northern Virginia?
The natural aging process causes a reduction in collagen and elastin and leads to thinning skin. This is particularly problematic in the back of the hands, as tendons and veins become visible and the hands begin to look deflated and bony.
Consequently, patients may become concerned about the appearance of their hands, especially when they don’t match their well-maintained and youthful face.
Fortunately, Restylane Lyft is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can rejuvenate hands in a matter of minutes without surgery, incisions, or downtime.
Restylane Lyft – First and Only Hyaluronic Filler FDA-Approved for Face and Hands
The FDA recently approved Restylane Lyft for the treatment of age-related volume loss in the back of the hands. This clearance makes Restylane Lyft the only hyaluronic acid filler that’s indicated for use on an area other than the face.
That being said, Radiesse is another injectable product, comprised of calcium hydroxylpatite, that is approved for facial and hand rejuvenation.
How is Rejuvenation with Filler Performed on Aging Hands?
Hand rejuvenation in Northern Virginia is a straightforward procedure that’s performed in an office-setting and takes 10-20 minutes.
There are several techniques for this treatment, including injecting small amounts of filler between the tendons or injecting a larger amount and then sculpting it into place once it’s under the skin.
Both of these strategies involve numbing the skin with a topical anesthetic and ice and then lifting it to deliver filler to skin above tendons and muscles.
How Long Do Results Last?
Immediately after treatment, hands appear plumper and veins and tendons disappear. These results typically last 9-10 months, at which time, follow-up injections will be needed to maintain volumizing effects.
