Hand Rejuvenation in Miami, Florida
What is hand rejuvenation?
One of the first parts of your body to show signs of aging are your hands. Because there is not a lot of fat on your hands, when the collagen in your hands breaks down, even in tiny amounts, it will affect the appearance of your skin. The decrease of collagen production, along with the breakdown of other essential proteins in the skin, can cause the hands to appear wrinkled and veiny over time. Hand rejuvenation is a cosmetic process that can help correct and minimize certain signs of aging, giving you youthful, healthy-looking hands. Hand rejuvenation treatment methods range from over-the-counter creams to laser therapy. At Greater Miami Skin & Laser Center, our skin care experts & hand specialist specialize in the utilization of injectable dermal fillers for hand rejuvenation.
Why are dermal fillers used for hand rejuvenation?
Collagen is an important protein found in your skin. Collagen, which provides your skin with firmness, is regularly produced by your body. As you age, collagen production decreases, causing your skin to become thin and fragile over the years. Dermal fillers, also known as cosmetic fillers, can help restore the appearance of hands that are suffering from the effects of collagen loss by “plumping up” the skin, which helps minimize the appearance of bulging veins and tendons. At Greater Miami Skin & Laser Center, we specialize in treating aging hands with Radiesse, an FDA-approved state-of-the-art dermal filler and wrinkle remover. Dermal fillers such as Radiesse can help add instant volume to your hands and help stimulate natural collagen production.
What does hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers involve?
Hand rejuvenation with Radiesse dermal filler is a quick procedure that takes place in the comfort of your doctor’s office. A Radiesse dermal filler procedure, sometimes referred to as a hand lift, begins with you in a comfortable seated position, resting your hands on a flat surface. To reduce pain at the injection site, your doctor may use a numbing agent or solution.
Once you are relaxed, your doctor will carefully introduce the injection to your skin and gently inject the filler into the back of your hand. Your doctor will then “mold” the gel-like treatment under your skin by gently massaging your hand. When the procedure is complete, you can look forward to immediate, noticeable before and after results that last.
Post-procedure, you may experience redness, swelling, and slight bleeding at the site of injection. Your doctor may recommend that you limit certain activities and avoid exposure to the sun and heat for 24 hours and until swelling and redness have subsided.
