Our hands take a beating over the years and, as a result, often give away our age. Skin laxity, volume loss, and sun damage can make the hands appear thin and wrinkled. Did you know, though, that dermal filler injections can help turn back the clock when it comes to the appearance of your hands? The board-certified dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology frequently perform hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers at their San Diego practice.
Hand Rejuvenation with Dermal Fillers
It is very common for patients to complain about the aged appearance of their hands and wonder if there is something they could do to improve it. Our bodies lose collagen during the aging process, which causes volume loss, and can lead to the visibility of the veins and bones in the hands. With dermal filler injections by our expert injectors, you can fill in lost volume, smoothing out hand wrinkles and giving hands a younger appearance.
Our dermatologists generally like using Radiesse for hand rejuvenation as it stimulates collagen production in your skin and the results are long lasting, sometimes up to one year. Radiesse is made out of calcium-based microspheres that add volume to the area of injection immediately. Radiesse is also a good option for the hands because it is mixed with lidocaine, an anesthetic, to eliminate discomfort.
Hyaluronic acid gel fillers also work well for hand rejuvenation and during your consultation with one of our world-renowned dermatologists, he/she will be able to determine which dermal filler is right for your hand rejuvenation needs.

A: One of the wonderful things about dermal filler injections is that there is practically no downtime! Most people can return to normal daily activities right after their treatment session.
