Hand volume loss is a common issue that many women and men experience as a result of aging. When volume loss occurs in the hands, it gives them a withered and wrinkled appearance. This can make you appear older than you actually are. Hand volume loss can also cause veins, bones, and other underlying structures of the hand to become more prominent. At Nu Vela Laser Medical Spa, we offer hand volume loss treatments in Los Angles.
At Nu Vela Laser Medical Spa, we offer several options for treating hand volume loss. During your consultation, Dr. Dishakjian will examine your hands to determine which treatment is the right one for you.
Dermal Fillers for Hand Rejuvenation
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 a 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.
Recovery length will vary between patients based on the type of hand rejuvenation treatment performed. With fat grafting, there will be some swelling and bruising around the area where the fat was harvested but these issues should be mild and will subside over the next few days. In general, the recovery period should be short with minimal pain or discomfort.
