What is hand rejuvenation?
The aging process tends to take a toll on the appearance of our hands first, while the other parts of our body still look youthful, such as our faces. There is less collagen in the dermal layer of our skin that is on the back of our hands compared to the facial area. Also, women’s hands age faster than men’s hands. Collagen and elastin are lost after menopause which causes the hands to lose volume in terms of fat and elasticity. This is a contributing factor to the skin’s aging process, therefore, veins and tendons become more visible. During this process, it is also common that age spots may begin to appear.
Are you interested in keeping your hands looking youthful? Now you can – thanks to a simple and straightforward treatment known as hand rejuvenation. It is a minimally invasive type of treatment that is used to help treat age spots, wrinkly skin, and dry skin on the hands. At Novomed, we use HYAcorp, an FDA-approved dermal filler that helps patient’s hands appear plumper, smoother, and more youthful-looking.
The medical professional will evaluate all of the elements of your hands before proceeding with the treatment. The following will be looked at closely:
- The visibility of the veins.
- The visibility of the tendons.
- The thickness of the fat.
- The bone reliefs.
HYAcorp fillers can help you achieve immediate results and it is suitable for every type of skin tone. A topical numbing cream is used to help limit any possible discomfort caused by the injections. The treatment helps improve the overall texture and quality of your skin on your hands and simultaneously reduces the visibility of prominent veins and wrinkles.
The treatment is quick, pain-free, and does not leave any scars. After the treatment is complete, it is possible to experience some swelling and/or bruising on the treated area. However, these side effects tend to be minimal and usually heal within a short period. Novomed’s team of board-certified doctors are highly experienced with injectables and only administer fillers safely and precisely.
Minimal to no downtime is required. After the treatment is done, it is possible to return to your daily routine. Difficult and strenuous activities should be avoided. Always ensure to follow your doctor’s post-treatment instructions precisely.
The results can be noticed immediately after the first session. Additionally, patients do claim that the results look natural. Results last based on the individual’s metabolism and lifestyle. A follow-up maintenance session can be attended approximately every 6-8 months to help maintain the results achieved.
- Moisturize your hands regularly.
- Use sunscreen lotion (SPF 30 to 60) to block the sun’s harmful effects on the skin. It should be applied to your hands and other parts of your body that are exposed to the sun.
- To help avoid the damage caused by water and detergent, you can use rubber gloves for protection.
However, if your hands have started to indicate signs of aging and it is causing you to feel self-conscious, then it is advisable to consult with a specialist about hand rejuvenation.
