Hand Rejuvenation (Hand Lift) is a treatment for the ageing of skin and visible, unsightly veins on the hand. A bolus or ball of Radiesse is injected and then massaged into the volume-deficient areas.
One of the most age-telling body features is our hands. Because the skin on the back of the hands is extremely thin, the loss of fat padding on any level shows quickly. Take away that cushion and all the structures in the hand show up the tendons, bones and the veins. The natural fat cushion that we're born with begins to lessen in our late twenties and early 30's. By the time most of us hit 50, we have hands that tell the truth about our age and often they can actually make us seem older than we are!
Hand rejuvenation can restore the volume in the dorsum of the hands that was lost due to the natural ageing process via a very simple and convenient procedure. The treatment is highly effective, easy and non time-consuming and delivers long-lasting results.
Prior Treatment: Your specialist doctor will examine and discuss treatment plan for you personally.
Injections in the back of the hands might be assumed to be painful, but in reality the procedure is virtually painless. It generally takes less than 20 minutes to inject both hands.
The Radiesse is mixed with Lidocaine anaesthetic prior to use so that the nerve endings in the skin are anesthetized. A bolus or ball of Radiesse is injected and then massaged into the volume-deficient areas. The product is easily massaged into place, and remains in those areas so the skin is smooth and even.
Post Treatment: Most people find that they can return to work the following day after this procedure.
After Care: Keep the treated area clean and avoid touching or put any product on for 6 hours after the treatment. Specific after care instruction will be provided.
The treatment provides an immediate result. However, the hands may swell slightly. This means that the result directly after the treatment may not be the final result. The swelling typically resolves spontaneously within a couple of days. To achieve the result you want it is recommended to have a touch-up treatment 2 to 4 weeks after the initial session. This will also add to the duration of the treatment effect.
There is very little to no down-time involved in the procedure. In fact, most patients return to their normal, daily activities right after their visit.
The result generally last 12 months or even longer. The longevity of these products is variable and each individual may obtain a different result. A plan for regular follow-up treatments to maintain the initial result can be created for you. Our treatment provides a long-lasting but not permanent result leaving you the option of refining your treatment in tune with changing taste and fashion.
