Watch Dr. Malik treat aging hands with Juvederm Voluma XC using a blunt cannula.
Dallas Radiesse+ and Juvederm Voluma XC Hand Rejuvenation
With aging, the skin on hands becomes thin and with the loss of subcutaneous fat, hands appear bony with prominent veins. Photo damage further contributes to the aging of hands with the appearance of age spots, fine lines and wrinkles.
Comprehensive hand rejuvenation addresses both aspects of aging:
- Superficial Skin Aging: Fine Lines, Wrinkles, Brown Spots
- Volume Loss: Thinning Skin and Fat Loss
The extent of aging of your hands can be assessed by the Merz hand grading scale
Surface Aging of Hands:
A number of treatments can be employed to address aging of hands such as, Micropen, chemical peels, IPL photo-rejuvenation or fractional laser resurfacing for superficial skin improvement and dermal fillers for volume replacement. Topical prescription cremes can provide an improvement in skin texture, fine lines and discolorations as well.
Volume Loss and Thinning Skin of Hands:
Loss of fat below the skin and thinning of the skin with aging leads to prominence of veins and tendons on the back of the hands which makes you look “aged”. Hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers is rapidly gaining popularity because it can dramatically rejuvenate the hands almost immediately by volumizing the skin, minimizing wrinkles, and hiding veins and bony prominences. Fillers with dermal collagen stimulants provide an added bonus increase in collagen production with prolonged treatment results.
The volume and thinning skin can be adequately addressed with the placement of a dermal filler such as Radiesse or Juvederm which provides immediate fullness (to restore fat loss) and collagen stimulation (to improve skin thickness and firmness); which makes Radiesse a suitable dermal filler due to its unique properties of providing immediate fullness and collagen stimulation.
Radiesse Is The First And Only Dermal Filler FDA Approved For Correction Of Volume Loss In The Back Of The Hands.
RADIESSE® injectable implant is FDA-approved for hand augmentation to correct volume loss in the dorsum of the hands. Radiesse hand rejuvenation treatment should be done by experienced Physicians certified for Radiesse hand injections. Dr Malik is one of the first physicians in Dallas to be a certified provider of Radiesse hand injection treatments in Dallas.
For your comfort and safety, Dr Malik may use a blunt cannula for placement of the dermal filler in the back of the hands. Our patients report very little discomfort, less post treatment swelling when a blunt cannula is used for dermal filler placement in the back of the hands.
Juvederm For Volume Loss in Back Of Hands:
Juvedern Ultra Plus XC is a hyaluronic acid filler FDA approved for lip augmentation and nasolabial folds. HA fillers have been used for volume replenishment for decades in aesthetic medicine and are very safe when injected with proper technique. For some of our patients who have a sensitivity to Radiesse or have a history of excessive swelling following their Radiesse treatment, we use Juvederm Ultra Plus XC for hand rejuvenation.
Regenerative Cosmetic PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) For Skin Regeneration Of Hands:
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood combined with a dermal filler is another very adequate option for hand rejuvenation treatment. PRP treatments at the time of your dermal filler for hands rejuvenation infuses the skin of your hands with eight growth factors which induce intense collagen synthesis and subdermal healthy tissue formation for thicker, firmer, rejuvenated skin on the back of your hands with Radiesse or Juvederm Ultra Plus XC as the added volume below the skin. This is especially beneficial for our patients with more advanced thinning of skin on the back of their hands which need a skin regeneration type treatment for dermal thickness in addition to replacing the lost volume below the skin.
Who Should Consider Having Hand Rejuvenation Treatment With Dermal Filler + Micropen?
Consider having hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers if:
- Your hands look aged with wrinkles and fine lines
- Your hands have bony appearance due to thinning skin and loss of fat under the skin
- You notice prominent veins on the back of your hands
Who Should Consider Having Hand Rejuvenation Treatment With PRP + Dermal Filler + Micropen
Consider adding PRP to your Radiesse + Micropen hand rejuvenation treatment if:
- The skin on the back of your hands is very thin in addition to loss of volume BELOW the skin
- The skin on the back of hands has very rough texture, fine lines and deep wrinkles
- You have extensive photodamage on the skin of the back of hands with brown spots, leathery appearance
Dermal fillers provide a safe, effective and minimally-invasive solution to treat volume loss of aging hands with minimal discomfort and little downtime. PRP injection into the skin and below the skin and topical application with the Micropen takes an extra 30 minutes to prepare bu makes a significant difference in the rejuvenation of the skin over weeks to months following a single treatment. Skin regeneration following PRP treatment is a natural way to boost your treatment results and to make them last longer.
The ideal dermal filler for hand rejuvenation needs to be hypoallergenic, nonirritating and nontoxic, like anywhere else in the body.
