What is hand rejuvenation?

The hands are often a neglected area of the body as most of us focus mainly on treatments on the face. Therefore our hands tell the story of our age more so than our face. The skin of our hands is subjected to the ravages of chemicals, sun exposure and other environmental stresses that our hands are exposed to. As we age our hands also lose collagen elastin and fat as we age. The signs of aging process and sun damage are that our hands look crepe-y, hollow and bony. It is also not uncommon to find age spots, prominent veins and wrinkles.

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF AGING?

When we age, some parts of our bodies may change in appearance, and this includes the volume loss on our skin. The skin on the back of our hands may start to lose its volume due to the loss of fat and muscle bulk. Patients are commonly advised by their surgeon or doctor to take lasers, injections, or a chemical peel treatment procedure to treat their skin problems that were affected with age. Lasers are one of the most popular treatments for a lot of skin issues as the device used for the treatment is enhanced and upgraded from time to time.

One reason why our skin tends to experience the signs of aging even at a young age is because of our unhealthy lifestyle. While a lot of factors can contribute to our aging skin, here are some of the indications if your skin is beginning to age:

  • Sagging skin (wrinkles & fine lines)
  • Dark marks
  • Dryness
  • Itchy skin
  • Hyperpigmentation on the chest
  • Rough skin texture

What are the benefits of hand rejuvenation?

Our hands are where we wear precious jewellery. In the near future where COVID is a memory, human contact might be restored to having handshakes again. Therefore there is no reason why our hands should lag behind our face in rejuvenation. The benefits of hand rejuvenation is that added confidence to your interaction with others. Hand rejuvenation treatments are usually painless with minimal down time and the good news is also they last a long duration.

It is ideal to consider hand rejuvenation treatment procedure when you start to notice early signs of hand damage and aging. We will certainly recommend that your hands should match your face.

Dermal Fillers for Hands

Dermal filler injection for hands is excellent to fill up the hollows of the hand and also reduce prominent veins. Many choices of fillers were used in the past and we certainly have our favourites.

Radiesse

Radiesse was a popular filler for the hands and we have used radiesse quite often for the hands and face. The benefit of radiesse is that the particles also stimulate collagen which is much needed in hands that are depleted of collagen and fat. However, we find that radiesse’ volume-enhancing effects are not as good as other hyaluronic acid fillers.

Hyaluronic acid fillers

In our clinic, we prefer to use hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers for hands rejuvenation. HA fillers are very volumising and are ideal to fill up the follows of the hands. Our favourite HA filler for filling up the hand hollows is Juvederm Voluma. One reason for that is because this particular brand is probably the longest-lasting HA filler in the market. Korean HA fillers are also popular in our centre because of their long duration and relatively cheaper cost. The latest HA filler that is excellent to rejuvenate the hand skin will be Profhilo which yields rather impressive results for crepe-y dry think skin.

Safe and painless

Typically numbing cream is applied to the hands prior to hand fillers. Nerve blocks are not necessary for this. This makes dermal fillers for hands relatively painless. The cannula method is also used to minimize the bruises. Our doctors are armed with the knowledge of hand anatomy and we meticulously avoid the veins and tendons of the hands during the treatment procedure to prevent bruises and complications.

Beautiful results

The results of hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers are the appearance of younger, full and wrinkle-free hands.

Curas Laser treatments

Curas Advanced Nano Laser is the latest generation of Q- switch lasers that promised a more optimal performance for the treatment of skin pigmentation at the hands.The results of this laser treatment are in just a few sessions, sun spots, liver spots or brown spots and freckles can be removed. The spots will appear red right after the laser treatment procedure, which will eventually be scabbed off, leaving the spot visibly reduced. Post laser care such as adequate sun protection and moisturizers are advised to maximise results. The long pulse mode of Curas laser also stimulates collagen production on the hand skin, resulting in firmer skin. The side effects of laser treatment are minimal. Most people can tolerate laser hand treatments even without numbing cream.
