Our hands are often overlooked when it comes to staying ahead of the ageing game but, just like our faces, our hands change over time and tend to show our age sooner than other parts of the body. Veins and tendons become more prominent, age spots appear and the skin on our hands becomes thin, scaly and wrinkly.
While many of us seek rejuvenation treatments for our face, this can often result in a stark contrast between the youthfulness of our face and the aged appearance of our hands. Interestingly, a study published in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery found that most people can accurately tell a person’s age just by looking at their hands.
Hand rejuvenation using dermal filler is a popular treatment at The Cosmetic Medicine Centre. We use a specific type of filler to restore volume to ageing hands and help smooth away wrinkles and crepiness.
One of the many benefits of this treatment is that it delivers both immediate results and also long-lasting improvement due to the stimulation of your body’s own production of collagen. For many of our patients, results can last up to one year.
Just like dermal fillers used for the face, the procedure itself is relatively simple with little discomfort. When performed by an experienced and qualified practitioner, hand rejuvenation with dermal filler has an excellent safety profile and high patient satisfaction. All of our filler treatments at The Cosmetic Medicine Centre are performed by Dr Dingley. In fact, all of our different types of treatments are performed by doctors or registered nurses.
