"Aging is out of your control, how you handle it, though, is in your hands" ~Diane Von Furstenberg
We are taking this quote a little out of context, but did you know besides the face, a womans hands give away her age every single time? Dermal fillers are a great tool for hand rejuvenation!
Make-up can easily disguise signs of aging on the face, but the hands are harder to hide. Women typically use sunscreen and protect the face with hats in the sun. The hands are usually forgotten and start to show signs of aging with sunspots, wrinkles and thinning skin. Some celebrities, such as Madonna, wear finger less gloves to cover up but now we can treat the "Madonna Mitts" with fillers and laser resurfacing.
Typically Juvederm, Radiesse and other fillers are used in the face. Doctors are now using these fillers to plump up the hands to reduce signs of aging. The fillers volumise and smooth out the wrinkles in the hands and encourage the production of collagen to provide a youthful look. Radiesse is made out of calcium-based microspheres that add volume to the area of injection immediately and results can last up to a year. Laser resurfacing can also be used in conjunction with fillers. This procedure will help reduce the appearance of sun and liver spots.
Hyaluronic acid gel fillers, such as Juvederm, also work well for hand rejuvenation. Hyaluronic acid filler acts like an inflated cushion to support body structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. It also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple.
Schedule a complimentary consultation with our Doctor where he will be able to determine which dermal filler is right for your hand rejuvenation needs. We look forward to meeting you in our New Jersey office.
