The focus of cosmetic enhancement has traditionally been the face. There are, however, other areas of the body where non-surgical treatments can be applied. Because the skin on the back of the hands is extremely thin, the loss of fat padding on any level can be visible very quickly. Take away that cushion and all the structures in the hand show up – the tendons, bones and the veins.
To treat the hands effectively, I use Restylane Vital ™. This is a versatile, safe, effective treatment used to rejuvenate the skin in a way that creams and moisturisers simply cannot do. By injecting very small deposits of Hyaluronic acid, Restylane Vital treatment improves the skin quality for a fresher look. The treatment is highly effective, easy and non time-consuming and delivers long-lasting results.
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. 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.
In order to reduce any discomfort, I apply a topical local anaesthetic to the back of the hands as well as a local anaesthetic already added to the syringe.
The malleability and longevity allow the hands to be completely natural looking after treatment. Restylane Vital sits very well in the hands and provides a cushion replacement. The depressions between the tendons and veins are refilled so both the bony appearance and the vein prominences (and the dark color of the veins) are reduced, giving your hands a softer, fuller appearance that signifies youth.If you would like to know more about these treatments.
