How Dermal Fillers Help the Appearance of Your Aging Hands

From wearing sunscreen to applying anti-aging facial creams, you work hard to maintain a youthful appearance. But, if you don’t pay attention to your hands, they can give away your age or even make you look older than you are.   

Fortunately, with a little help from dermal fillers and the team at MedWeight, Lasers & Wellness Centers, in Irvine, California, you can turn back the hands of time in the new year. We offer several types of hand rejuvenation treatments, customized for your needs.

Take a moment to learn how our aesthetic expert, Shonda Chase, FNP, can use fillers to help rejuvenate the appearance of your aging hands using FDA-approved fillers.   

Why do my hands look old?

Just like the rest of you, your hands age as the years go by. As you get older, your hands begin to lose fat at the same time your skin loses its elasticity and volume, and your muscles naturally begin to atrophy. 

The result? Protruding tendons, veins, and bones, and wrinkly, translucent skin that’s more prone to age spots. This skeleton-like appearance can add years to your age, making you look older even when your face remains youthful. 

Preventive measures, such as wearing sunscreen on your hands, exfoliating and moisturizing your hands, and maintaining a healthy diet, can go a long way toward keeping your skin looking younger. Furthermore, laser treatments can banish sunspots that appear. However, little can stop the loss of volume and elasticity older age brings. That’s where fillers come in.

How can dermal fillers help my hands?

The good news is that dermal fillers can help rejuvenate the appearance of aging hands. They work to restore the volume your hands naturally lose over time, smoothing the contours of your hands and taking years off their appearance. Here’s how it works:

The team at MedWeight, Lasers & Wellness Centers uses a filler called Radiesse®, an FDA-approved injectable filler for rejuvenating aging hands. By strategically injecting the filler, we improve the appearance of your hands by augmenting volume where you need it most.

Instant volume

Radiesse uses microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) suspended in a light gel to add instant volume to the backs of your hands. But Radiesse doesn’t stop there. This innovative filler also stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen.

Increased collagen production

By rebuilding the structure of the support tissues below the surface of your skin, you can enjoy improved skin tone and elasticity. And since the more collagen you have, the more your body continues to produce it, you’ll enjoy a boost even after your body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres.  

Minimal side effects

The components of Radiesse are natural to your body, so there’s little risk for negative side effects. If they do occur, the most common side effects are mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site, which should resolve quickly without the need for intervention.  

Quick results

The best part? With just a few brief injections, you’ll get noticeable results right away, with results that last 18-24 months

Depending on your needs, your MedWeight, Lasers & Wellness Centers provider may also recommend other hand rejuvenation therapies, such as skin resurfacing, chemical peels, topical bleaching, IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy, or fat transfers.
