Home/Non-Surgical/Hand Rejuvenation

As we age, our hands can give away our true age, despite our best efforts to keep our face looking youthful. Dark spots, wrinkles, prominent veins and thinning skin can make our hands look older than we feel. However, hand rejuvenation can help turn back the clock and restore the youthful appearance of our hands.

Hand Rejuvenation refers to a collection of procedures that help improve the appearance of aging hands. Hands are amongst the areas of the body that reveal signs of aging just as much as our facial skin. As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, substances that keep our skin firm and plump. As a result causing veins, bones, and tendons appear more pronounced, while sun exposure can cause unsightly age spots or dark spots to develop over time.

Benefits of Hand Rejuvenation

Why Undergo Hand Rejuvenation?

Hand rejuvenation treatments can provide a youthful appearance for the hands as the soft tissue volume in the hands is gradually depleted during the natural aging process. These treatments are typically very similar to using the same skin care procedures designed to enhance the face.

Laser skin resurfacing reduces dark spots and pigmentation, while filler injections add volume to the treated areas to help with lost collagen. From chemical peels to fat transfers for the hands, there are plenty of cosmetic procedures to improve the aesthetics of hands.

Fat Grafting and Injectable Fillers

Injectable fillers formulated with hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite are an effective way to plump the back of the hands and restore lost volume. In addition to injectables like Radiesse® and Restylane® Lyft, our team also offers a more natural alternative known as fat grafting. Both of these options can provide very natural-looking results.

While results from injectable fillers can last for a year or two, patients can choose to schedule follow-up treatments to maintain their rejuvenated hand appearance.

How Long Does Hand Rejuvenation Last?

The effects of hand rejuvenation will vary depending on the type of procedure performed and the individual results will vary as each individual’s healing process differently. Unfortunately, none of these non-surgical techniques are permanent and your hands will continue to show signs of aging as you get older.

Dermal fillers in the hands typically last at least 9 months, but in most cases you’ll still notice the effect up to 12 months.

The fillers slowly break down over time and are filtered out of the body, so this type of treatment needs to be repeated annually. Fortunately, the results of dermal fillers are seen almost immediately following the procedure.

Fat grafting is considered the most permanent and natural procedure for a more natural outcome and results will last years but will require upkeep as hands continue to age. The plumpness of the hands can improve with these fat grafting techniques.

Laser Skin Resurfacing, also known as IPL is also a temporary treatment and blemishes on your skin should gradually begin to fade, improving skin tone; however, these procedures aren’t permanent as our bodies continue to age.

As we continue to age and continue to enjoy the sun, our bodies will continue to show signs of aging. While the brown spots/ sunspots and discolorations that were corrected using laser therapy or IPL will continue to look better, other spots may arise over time.

Pros and Cons of Hand Rejuvenation

Several advantages and disadvantages of hand rejuvenation and enhancements may include:



Am I a Candidate for Hand Rejuvenation?

If your hands are beginning to show signs of aging, such as sun damage and hyperpigmentation, boniness, fine lines and wrinkles then you’re a prospective candidate for a hand rejuvenation procedure, and a board-certified plastic surgeon will outline your options during your consultation for a more youthful hand.

Ideal Candidates and Contraindications

Any non-smoking individuals in good health who would like their hands to appear more youthful might be a good candidate for hand rejuvenation. However, hand rejuvenation is not recommended for people who smoke and are unwilling to quit. Individuals with unrealistic goals about the outcome and those with severe allergies to dermal fillers (fat transfers can be an alternative option) or bleeding disorder are also not ideal candidates.

What Will Be the Recovery Time for My Hand Rejuvenation?

Recovery and downtime from your hand rejuvenation procedure will depend on the treatments performed. Many patients undergo non-surgical procedures and can return to their daily routine activity within one to two days.

How Much Does Hand Rejuvenation Cost?

Every person is different, so price varies based on the type of procedure selected and the complexity of the procedure. Typically the surgery will cost around $1,000-$5,000 including anesthesia and facility fees, if needed. The quality of the surgeon is also a factor in cost, and a board certified plastic surgeon is always the best option.
