Get Smoother & Beautiful Hands
Our hands are subject to increased aging because visible signs of aging are most prominent in areas of the body that are exposed to natural elements. The evolution of medicine has paved a way toward significant advancement in techniques for erasing signs of aging from the human face. However, medical professionals have been largely unsuccessful in evaluating and studying the effects of dermal aging in other areas of the body, such as the hands.
How does it work?
Veins become much more prominent with deepening colour enhancement. The anatomy of the tendon becomes more accentuated. Skin wrinkles become much more prevalent with the loss of fullness and elasticity in the deep dermal layer. Inter metacarpal wasting becomes more enhanced with volume loss. The objective of rejuvenating the hands is to add generalised fullness to the skin and subcutaneous tissue in order to add volume to the hand forming the joint with a youthful fullness.
What are the treatments?
Intense Pulsed Light
Intense pulsed light therapy uses a multi-wavelength light source to fade the dark spots that form on the arms and hands due to sun exposure. This quick, painless procedure involves exposing the skin to a flash of bright light that targets the dark pigment while leaving the normal pigment untouched. Minimal to no downtime is involved.
The veins on the back of our hands appear more prominent as we get older because the skin becomes thinner due to collagen loss. Natural dermal fillers can be used to add volume to the skin and to promote new collagen formation, giving instant results that improve over time.
What is the recovery time of hand rejuvenation?
Recovery after hand rejuvenation depends on how much work was done to achieve the more youthful appearance. Basically, healing could take from one day to several weeks. During this time, over the counter drugs may be used to help with any pain, and cold packs are helpful. Doctors generally treat one hand at a time, which may be covered in a bandage for twenty- four hours. The hands should be protected from the sun after hand rejuvenation so a strong sunscreen should be applied daily.
Do I need anaesthesia for hand rejuvenation?
Anaesthesia during hand rejuvenation also depends on the procedures being applied. Some processes are better done under general anaesthesia, but the majority of hand rejuvenation treatments may be done using only a topical or local anaesthetic. This is an issue that should be discussed with the doctor prior to a procedure.
Is Hand Rejuvenation safe?
All of the procedures used in hand rejuvenation are safe and highly tested. Allergic reactions, scarring, and infection, which are common in other types of surgeries, are unlikely; however, they are possible.
Do I need to prepare for Hand Rejuvenation?
Depending on the type of procedures being done and the chosen anaesthetic, patients may be given a sedative to take before coming for hand rejuvenation surgery. The doctor may also ask them to prepare for the procedure by stopping medications that thin the blood for a week or so before surgery.
How much does Hand Rejuvenation cost?
The cost of Hand Rejuvenation depends on how long it takes to carry out the procedure. This, in turn, depends on the surface area being treated. Call us for our hand rejuvenation prices.
