Ageing Hands

One of the best ways to combat ageing hands is with the use of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injectable material made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in our body. The function of hyaluronic acid naturally in the body is to maintain the skin’s volume and hydration. It is appropriate, therefore, that fillers made from such materials are the products used to plump up, or fill in hollows and creases in the skin in areas which lose fat or internal shape with normal ageing.

Ageing Hands Treatment.

As the years pass, the skin on the back of the hands thins, causing a puckering or crepey effect, and causing veins to look more prominent. It is often said that hands are the best indicators of age, as they are more difficult to protect from the elements and are constantly exposed to them. One of the best ways to achieve hand rejuvenation is by the use of dermal fillers, as these fillers volumise and smooth the skin on the back of the hands, whilst also stimulating collagen production. This provides a healthier, more youthful look to the hands.

  • How are dermal fillers administered to combat ageing hands?

    After assessment by one of our qualified practitioners, dermal fillers are administered by way of small injections through a fine needle into the backs of the hands area, then massaged into the skin to encourage even coverage and instant volume.

    The doctor has control over the volume of filler used, using just the right amount to create a natural – looking effect, completely rejuvenating the hands, restoring a youthful volume and smoothness to this previously difficult to treat area.

  • Is the process of treating ageing hands painful?

    Some of the fillers used at the Clinic have inbuilt Lidocaine, an anaesthetic, to help numb the area treated so as to cause minimum discomfort. Others do not, and so a topical anaesthetic is applied, which has the same effect.

    The process is comparatively quick, and the back of the hand area is immediately volumised, disguising prominent veins and tendons, and smoothing out any crepiness, and so combating the effect of ageing hands completely.

  • How long does this treatment for ageing hands last and are there any side effects?

    The results are instant, and dependent on the filler used, can last up to 12 months. . Once the injections have been administered, the area may be a little swollen for a short time.

    Side effects are rare, as hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in humans, and over time, will be broken down and eliminated naturally through the body.

  • Who will perform the dermal fillers for ageing hands treatment?

    As with all Dermal Fillers treatments, Ageing Hands treatment for men and women is performed by one of our qualified practitioners and supervised by Doctor Maria Gonzalez.
