Despite great advances in facial cosmetic procedures, hand rejuvenation has been largely neglected. Following the trend in facial cosmetic procedures, patients are now increasingly requesting hand rejuvenation treatments. Severe weight loss, intense physical exercise, excessive sun exposure and the natural process of ageing are causing loss of dermal elasticity and atrophy of the subcutaneous tissue. Thus, veins, tendons and bony structures become apparent.
This upsetting appearance of the hands can be corrected by restoring the volume of soft tissue. Dermal fillers can be injected superficially into the dermal layer of the skin at multiple points. The filler used is often ‘runny’ allowing it to spread over larger areas before toughening up. Fillers can add a youthfulness to the hands- one of the major give-aways to ones true age, and can last as long as 2 years. Best part, due to little superficial innervation across the dorsal aspects of the hands the procedure is virtually painless!
Moreover injection of PROFHILO can stimulate own collagen formation, making this the ideal treatment for those patients who desire a more natural , softer look.
