Replacing the volume loss of face and hands with a dermal-filler is not a “new” procedure. When fillers are injected into the hands they plump up the skin and the depressions between the tendons and veins are refilled. Both the bony appearance and the vein prominence (and the dark color of the veins) are reduced and your hands become softer and fuller with youthful appearance.
Volume replenishment is most frequently performed with synthetic dermal fillers, such as Radiesse and Sculptra Aesthetic. Synthetic fillers wear well in the hands, and provide a cushion replacement, maintaining a soft, natural feel. Results typically last 1 – 3 years.
HAND REJUVENATION – RADIESSE FILLER ONLY
Fat cells taken from other parts of your body may also be transplanted to your hands to fill up the top of the hand from the wrist to the mid fingers. This is the gold standard, but the staying power of fat is debatable. More about fat grafting.
If excess skin is a problem as well, the excess skin of the top hand can be taken up through some small incisions, or by the skin-shrinking capacity of the SkinTyte light therapy, which Dr. Dishakjian uses frequently for this purpose.
