Did you know that one way to tell a person’s true age is by looking at their hands. Taking great care of our faces is becoming a more common practice. We wear sunscreen more and have skin care routines that help fight wrinkle development. However, many people let hand maintenance fall to the wayside. Hand rejuvenation can help you look younger all the way down to your fingertips.
Why Our Hands Age
Collagen and minor fat in our hands help give them a plump, smooth, and youthful appearance. As we age, these volumizing tissues break down, causing the hands to appear bony. Tendons can become more pronounced, and the skin becomes thin and appears dry. Restoring lost volume in the hands is the ideal way to reverse these signs of aging.
Restoring Hand Volume
There are two ways to restore volume to your hands. The first way is with injections of RADIESSE®. RADIESSE® is a dermal filler that stimulates collagen production in the dermis. Since RADIESSE® stimulates collagen production, the created volume lasts long after the injectable formula has been absorbed by the body. The second technique that can restore hand volume is fat grafting. Dr. Calabria’s stem cell fat grafting provides the longest-lasting results of any procedure on the market. Fat grafting utilizes patient-harvested fat to plump the hands. Stem cells also have the added benefit of improving the texture of your hands as well as restoring volume.
Both techniques can be tailored to your needs. Special attention can be paid to certain areas of the hands that may have more signs of aging.
