Hand Fillers | Filler Rejuvenation for Hands to Reduce Crepey, Wrinkled and/or Veiny, Bony Skin
Consider this our MedSpa Public Service Announcement: Stop neglecting your hands! Here’s the thing: once upon a time, our faces gave away our age. Thankfully, we’re taking better care of the skin on our faces these days. As a result, wrinkly, veiny hands are more likely to reveal how old we are now. So, beauties, it’s time! Give your hands as much love as your face! A Dermal Filler is a top nonsurgical hand treatment to restore protruding veins, a bony appearance and/or crepey skin. In today’s post, learn all about the benefits and advantages of the Hand Fillers for hand rejuvenation, courtesy of the best Medical Spa in NYC.
What Causes Hand Wrinkles and/or Bony, Veiny Hands?
Before we get to nonsurgical hand rejuvenation, let’s talk about what causes hands to wrinkle and/or protruding hand veins or bones. Specifically, our hands don’t get the attention they need. Daily, they’re exposed to the sun, pollution and free radicals. Yet, unlike the face, we often forget to protect our hands with SPF. Additionally, we typically don’t have a skincare regime for the hands, in order to counteract the effects of aging. Further, the skin on the hands is particularly prone to aging. Specifically, it’s thinner, has fewer reparative oil glands and less collagen and elastin than other parts of the body.
To summarize, the hands suffer both skin damage and accelerated aging — that’s a perfect storm for volume loss on the hands. As skin thins, crepey or wrinkly hands begin to appear. As we produce less collagen and elastin, veins and bones start to protrude through the surface of the skin.
What is the Best Filler For Hands?
In general, Cosmetic Fillers are a top choice for restoring volume to aging skin on many areas of the face. The same holds true to diminish bumpy, veiny and/or wrinkled hands.
While there are many different filler formulations for the face, we generally recommend Radiesse filler for hands. Fillers for face, such as Juvederm, Restylane and Belotero, use Hyaluronic Acid (HA) as their active ingredient. On the other hand, Radiesse makes use of Hydroxyapatite.
How Do Fillers For Hands Work for Rejuvenation?
Hydroxyapatite is particularly suited for the hands, due to its superior strength profile. Specifically, Radiesse’s active ingredient contains fine calcium microspheres that are held in a special hydrating gel-matrix. Basically, this formulation shares similarities to bone. This is a benefit for the hands, because Hydroxyapatite will act as a scaffold under the skin. As a result, it will provide support for the underlying structures of the hands that have been weakened by both aging and damage.
Specifically, when compared to other fillers, these calcium microspheres offer a distinct advantage for the hands because Hydroxyapatite is:
- Thick and sturdy
- Designed to hold its shape and withstand force
- Provide for less migration of product from the treatment area
These attributes are particularly important, because the hands:
- Are a highly mobile area of the body, demanding a filler that stays in place
- Require a stronger filler to counteract a typically noticeable and pronounced protrusion of bone and veins on the hands
What Hand Filler Results Can I Expect Before and After?
Following Hand Filler injection with a fine needle at strategic points along the back of each hand, Radiesse Hand Filler results are immediate and include:
- Restoring natural volume, in order to reverse a bumpy, veiny and/or bony hands
- Diminishing fine lines, wrinkles and/or crepey skin on the hands
- Improving the overall quality and texture of the skin on the hands
When Will I See Results? How Long Do Fillers in Hands Last? What’s the Longest Lasting Filler?
Generally speaking, Radiesse lasts longer than most HA fillers (12 months on average compared with 4-6 months). Again, this is due to the durability of the Calcium Microspheres.
What’s more Hydroxyapatite offers a surprising advantage to other fillers. Specifically, it has a unique ability to promote collagen production. Over time, Radiesse’s gel carrier will be reabsorbed by the body. However, the scaffolding that the Hydroxyapatite provided will remain. In essence, it works to encourage collagen production. Eventually, the gel is replaced by new tissue. Put simply, Radiesse helps the body rejuvenate itself.
How Many ML’s for Hand Rejuvenation? How Much Does Hand Filler Cost?
We typically recommend injecting the hands with between Filler 1-3 cc’s or ml’s along strategic points on each hand for full correction. However, the number of cc’s and, thus, the Hand Filler price depends on:
- Individual anatomy,
- Extent of aging skin on the cheeks, and
- Individual beauty goals
Because of these factors, it’s always best to speak with an Expert in Beauty to determine Filler pricing for you.
How to Find a Master Injector / Provider Near Me? Where to Get Fillers?
Look for an experienced doctor who:
- Will consider your individual anatomy and extent of aging
- Knows where to inject product to get the Botox / filler results you’re looking for
- Knows how much product to use to achieve natural results.
- Can advise the right maintenance schedule to extend these results.
