What Can I Do For My Old Hands?
- Posted on: Jul 15 2018
Have you ever looked down at your hands and realized they don’t look as young as you feel? Because hands are often out in the sun and work hard, they take a beating and show our age. Sometimes, they even look older than we are! Getting regular manicures and applying lotion and sunscreen can only do so much for our hands, though. Gorgeous, neat nails can help make hands look their best, but they can’t hide what’s really going on. As our hands age, they lose connective tissue and fat. That’s a double-whammy that can end up making them look old and stringy. Are you interested in learning how we can help your hands look more youthful? Keep reading.
Fillers for the hands
We’ve been using safe, effective fillers to plump up specific parts of the face for years, so why can’t we use them to add a dash of youth to our hands? Fillers that consist of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CH) , Hyaluronic acid, and Poly-L- lactic acid may be considered and suggested by your physician, based on the results you’re looking for. They can be safely administered into the surface of the hands, immediately giving them a youthful appearance. Even better, there’s almost no downtime with fillers, so you can keep using your hands as normal.
How long will results last?
Most fillers can be administered in thirty minutes, so you could come in during your lunch break and leave with beautiful, younger hands! Depending on the fillers used, results can last for a few months to over a year. Generally, because the hands move so much, fillers may not last as long on the hands as they do when you get the same treatment on a facial body part that is more stationary.
Dermal fillers can be a great option if you’re looking for a more plump look, whether you are looking to add some youth to your face or your hands!
