Hand Rejuvenation or a Hand Lift is a treatment for thin hand skin and veiny hands. Here we answer 5 most frequently asked questions on this cosmetic treatment:
What is hand rejuvenation?.
Hand rejuvenation is also called a Hand Lift, and can refer to a single cosmetic technique or a combination of two or more. Treatments commonly used for hand rejuvenation include fat transfer injections, Botox and dermal fillers to plump up the thinning tissue on the back of the hand along with laser treatments and chemical peels to improve the texture of the skin and reduce the appearance of age spots.
What’s involved in hand rejuvenation?
This depends on the techniques used. Most filler techniques will involve injections and a local anaesthetic will be given to minimise discomfort. Treatment may take between 20 minutes and 2 hours depending on the number and type of treatments given.
How long will it take me to recover from hand rejuvenation?
With most hand rejuvenation treatments, you should be able to resume your normal activities straight away. You will need to treat your hands with care, and protecting them from the sun or any source of UV light is normally recommended.
What are the risks of hand rejuvenation?
Most injectable hand rejuvenation treatments will carry a small risk of infection or bleeding, and possibly some numbness. If injected fat or fillers are displaced, there is a risk of an unsatisfactory cosmetic result and your hands may not look alike or may appear lumpy.
How much will hand rejuvenation cost?
Depending on which hand rejuvenation treatments you opt for, prices for a hand lift vary from £50 to £500.
