Following the trend in facial cosmetic procedures, patients are now increasingly requesting hand rejuvenation treatments.
Intrinsic ageing of the hands is characterized by loss of dermal elasticity and atrophy of the subcutaneous tissue.
Thus, veins, tendons and bony structures become apparent.
Among the available procedures, intrinsic ageing of the hands is best improved by restoring the volume of soft tissue.
Volume restoration can be achieved with a number of long-lasting dermal fillers with varying degrees of improvement and treatment longevity.
The dermal fillers used in hand rejuvenation include autologous fat, collagen, hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite and poly-L-lactic acid.
