Hand Rejuvenation 101: Everything You Need To Know
In the beauty world, we often promote the anti aging benefits of moisturizer and sunscreen. However, many people only focus on the face and, maybe, the decollete area. This is good but it neglects to protect another highly exposed area of the body that many people don’t think about until the signs of aging begin to show, the hands. Luckily, there are ways to combat aging hands with services like Hand Rejuvenation.
What is Hand Rejuvenation?
Hand Rejuvenation is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure, or group of procedures, designed to repair the signs of aging and restore a more youthful appearance to the skin of the hands. Hand Rejuvenation can address concerns such as sun spots, wrinkles, bony fingers, and sagging skin. It is a perfect aging hands treatment for multiple needs with beautiful results.
How does it work?
There are several methods in which hand rejuvenation can be done. Treatments will vary based on individual needs. However, our two favorite methods at Coco Med Spa are injectables, and microneedling. For injectable treatments, dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid is injected into specified areas of the hands to help with volume loss, smoothing skin, and overall improved appearance. For texture concerns, sunspots, and scarring, microneedling can help to improve skin over time by helping with new collagen and elastin production.
How long does Hand Rejuvenation Last?
Hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers will last about 6 months to 1 year depending on the individual. However, microneedling improves hands over a longer period of time so you will see an increase in benefits as time goes on with multiple treatments.
Who can benefit from hand rejuvenation?
Anyone who wishes to improve the youthful appearance of their hands by reducing the appearance of veins or bony fingers, smoothing skin, plumping the hands, or repairing sun and age spots can benefit from hand rejuvenation.
What is the best filler for hands?
Two common fillers used for the procedure are Radiesse and Restylane Lyft. Both of these fillers are commonly used for sagging, wrinkled skin and their gel-like consistency is perfect for administering into and shaping the hands. Fillers like Radiesse are made with a biostimulatory agent that helps to produce new collagen in the injected areas. Hyaluronic acid fillers, like Restylane Lyft, mimic the body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid and dissolve safely over time with little to no risk so they are a great option for anyone. Fillers like Radiesse are made with a biostimulatory agent that helps to produce new collagen in the injected areas.
