If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then what are the hands? After your face, the hands are the second thing to show your age.
Did you know several medical aesthetics treatments can restore lost volume to the hands and make your client’s hands look younger?
Dermal Fillers for Hand Rejuvenation
Hand rejuvenation is quickly becoming popular across the United States. With the growth of social media, engagement ring selfies are one of the first things future brides do once their man pops the question.
As the body ages, the hands reveal prominent tendons, veins, muscles and bones. UV exposure causes approximately 90 percent of visible age-related changes that manifest on the hands.
The good news is your clients don’t have to suffer from the sight of brown spots, wrinkles and leathery skin. There are several hand rejuvenation treatments and procedures available to restore the look of your client’s hands.
While lasers increase collagen regeneration, improve tone, erase sun damage and scarring, an unexpected procedure for hand rejuvenation is dermal fillers.
Recently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Restylane Lyft, a hyaluronic acid filler, for the correction of age-related volume loss in the back of the hands for patients over the age of 21. Study results showed participants who had the backs of their hands injected with dermal fillers saw improvement in volume for up to six months.
This new approval makes Restylane Lyft the only filler on the market that has FDA approval on three separate treatment areas: nasolabial folds, the midface/cheeks and the backs of the hands.
Fillers for hand wrinkles are an effective cosmetic treatment because they can improve, contour and restore volume to this area. Using dermal fillers can plump the backs of the hands to make the tendons and veins less visible.
Different medical providers administer fillers for hand wrinkles in different ways. Some nurses and physicians make multiple injections in small amounts between the tendons, while others make one large injection in the center of the hand and move the filler to where it needs to go under the skin.
