They’ll create an individualized hand rejuvenation treatment plan designed to restore fullness, diminish veins, and reduce age spots. If you have any questions, call one of their offices in Torrance or Palm Springs, California, or schedule an appointment online to get started on your hand rejuvenation program.

Hand Rejuvenation

What causes aging in hands?

As you age, your skin produces less collagen and elastin, both necessary for skin to have a more youthful appearances and increased elasticity. The natural layer of fat that normally cushions your skin in your hands also thins out over time just like on your face. This causes your hands to appear bony and your veins to become more visible.

Years of sun exposure also cause brown spots, sometimes called liver spots, and increases wrinkles. But now, many of the changes in your hands due to aging can be greatly improved with dermal fillers and PICO laser treatments.

How do dermal fillers rejuvenate hands?

Dermal fillers contain ingredients that restore fullness when they’re injected under the skin. Some injectables contain hyaluronic acid, a substance that your body naturally produces to provide hydration and promote resilience. 

Hyaluronic acid gels (HA’s) physically plump the skin and increases collagen and elastin production. HA fillers have proven to be a safe and effective approach to replace lost fat. Revive’s providers have found long lasting HA’s like Voluma to be the most comfortable injectable for sensitive hands. Voluma creates a soft and natural appearance in hands.

Most patients can’t tell the difference between the way their hands used to feel and the way they feel after a Voluma Hand Lift. Revive’s advanced injectors often use a cannula injection technique for hands that requires just one small poke near your wrist. From there the injector can safely reach the entire back area of your hands with little risk of bruising or post injection sensitivity. And Revive is equipped with the incredible Accuvein® technology which allows the injector to see the patient’s veins below the skin to further the risk of bruising.

Radiesse and Other Non-Hyaluronic Acid Gels For Hand Rejuvenation

Other dermal fillers contain small particles of calcium hydroxylapatite, known by injectors as Radiesse (the same substance that’s in your bones). The particles immediately add volume to help your hands look more vibrant and youthful.

Poly-L-lactic acid is the third ingredient found in dermal fillers. After it’s injected and absorbed, it triggers collagen production, providing a long-lasting effect as it breaks down over time.

Injectable dermal fillers rebuild volume for a year or more, depending on the product used. 

What is a Fat Transfer for Hands?

A fat transfer, or in medical terms, an autologous fat transplantation, uses a small amount of fat from another part of your body to replace depleted fat in your hands. A fat transfer might help you accomplish two goals at once: get rid of unwanted fat from your abs or love handles, and use that same fat to gain more youthful looking hands.

Previous fat transfer techniques often required over filling of hands due to a low rate of fat retention. Revive’s plastic surgeon uses a newly FDA approved technique called LipoGems for fat transfers to any area of the body including hands. LipoGems helps most of the fat be retained so no over-filling is required. The way your hands look after the LipoGems transfer is the way they’re going to look for several years. Revive Wellness Center is one of the few aesthetic practices in the country using this new innovation for natural, younger looking hands immediately after your procedure.

You also may choose to treat facial wrinkles by restoring lost at the same time you rejuvenate your hands because there’s usually plenty of fat left over following hand treatment. Fat transfers produce longer-lasting results than dermal fillers, lasting up to several years in some people.

What is Skin Brightening for Hands?

Skin brightening usually refers to bringing vibrancy and lightening back to your skin by exfoliating.  Hand rejuvenations at Revive can also include treating dark spots on your hands and evening out your skin tone. Treatment options available for eliminating brown spots at Revive on your hands include:

  • Topical products: to bleach and lighten the dark spots and even out your skin tone.
  • PICO Genesis Laser Treatments: to safely and effectively lighten dark spots, even skin tones and increase collagen and elastin production in your skin. Revive’s Enlighten PICO laser can safely treat any skin type to improve your hand’s appearance whether you need a dermal filler or not.
  • Intense pulsed light (IPL): to reduce dark pigments on some lighter skin types. Revive only uses IPL approach on lighter skin types I-III to reduce the risk of having an IPL treatment making dark spots worse darker
  • Resurfacing: The skin on your hands is usually so thin and sun damaged that  Revive’s medical practitioners don’t usually recommend that you use chemical peels or microdermabrasion to rejuvenate your hands. Revive has found that replacing lost fat and PICO laser treatments are much more effective in restoring hands to a more youthful and natural condition.
