We all know how the sun can prematurely age us, so we use sunscreen to protect our faces from UV rays every day. And when we notice age spots or wrinkles, we know what treatments will help us get that youthful look back. When it comes to our hands, we are far less concerned. But why? Our hands are almost constantly working, and they see the sun as much (if not more) than our faces. They truly can take a beating. Thankfully, there are ways we can help turn back the hands of time–on our own hands.
If you’re unhappy with the state of your hands, keep reading.
Fillers for the hands
Yes, you can use dermal fillers on the hands. This safe, effective treatment has been used on our faces for years, so it makes sense to put them to work on other parts of our bodies that need a little more volume.
Hand rejuvenation using autologous fat, collagen, hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite or poly-L-lactic acid might all be considered by your physician, depending on the specific results you’re looking for.
How long will results last?
Many fillers can be administered in a short appointment, even as short as thirty minutes. Imagine leaving work for lunch and coming back with more youthful hands. There’s almost no downtime associated with fillers, so you can keep using your hands that same day. There may be some minimal massage required on your part for the first few days after your treatment, to smooth out the fillers and make sure they are settling in correctly. Your physician will advise you on the best methods to keep your results as long as possible. Keep in mind that hands move a lot, so results may not last as long as fillers administered in more stationary parts of the body.
