Cosmetic changes to soft tissue of the hands can often be the first tell-tale signs of aging. Over the years, our hands are exposed to the sun probably more than any other area of our bodies. Visible signs of age here can be exacerbated by damage from UV rays and can include wrinkled skin and loss of soft tissue volume, with underlying prominent veins and joints. Hand rejuvenation provides soft tissue volumization under the skin, which results in a more youthful appearance. The skin has more support and looks smooth and supple; the underlying veins and joins will look less prominent as well.
If you’re self-conscious about the appearance of your hands, whether they look sagging, aged, or bony, our medical spa offers an effective solution with Restylane® Lyft injections. Call today for hand rejuvenation in Atlanta!
Restylane® Lyft in Atlanta for Hand Rejuvenation
Restoring youthful appearance means restoring volume, and Restylane® Lyft is a perfect answer to providing volume in the usual areas, such as the cheeks and temples, but proves to also be useful for the hands. The skin and soft tissue of the back of the hands are very thin. As the soft tissue diminishes with age, the surrounding structures, such as our veins, bones, joints, and tendons, become more prominent in appearance. The skin loses structural support and appears deflated and wrinkled. Restylane® Lyft is a great option to combat the visible effects of the aging process.
Treatment with Restylane® Lyft restores soft tissue volume under the skin of the back of your hands. It provides structural support to your skin and improves the cosmetic appearance of your hands.
Dermal Fillers for Hands: What to Expect at Your Appointment
Just a few injection sites on the back of your hands are treated and will be numbed with a local anesthetic prior to your procedure. The Restylane®Lyft will be administered through those injection sites, and the filler solution spreads under your skin to create the desired effect. Care is taken by Dr. Joiner to distribute the product evenly, creating create a smooth appearance. The overall delivery of the product is relatively painless.
We will start with using just one syringe per hand and evaluate the need for additional product. In some patients, one to three syringes per hand are required for optimal rejuvenation.
