Using Dermal Fillers for Hands
The first thing to show age on the human body is the face and hands. Let’s face it, the natural aging process hits us all at one point or another. Shape, texture, and elasticity in our hands are constantly changing as the clock ticks. Like any body part that is constantly exposed, sun damage can be a major factor in why our hands are more susceptible to aging. Additionally, take into consideration the number of things our hands do with constant movement and muscle usage. If your skin is sagging, appearing thin, or showing wrinkles and lines, you could be a great candidate to receive injections of dermal filler for your hands.
What is Dermal Filler
Dermal filler is a gel injectable with a hyaluronic acid-base. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally produced in the human body to provide volume and fullness. Injectable fillers are given under the skin to help will wrinkles, replenish volume, and restore skin to its natural and smooth appearance of your younger years.
How Does Dermal Filler Work
Fillers work to boost your skin’s natural supply of collagen. By injecting hyaluronic acid beneath the skin, you see quick results with plump volume and softness. In return, hyaluronic acid helps induce the natural collagen made in the body over time. Administered with a small needle, the procedures don’t require any anesthetic or numbing. As a result, it’s essentially a pain-free procedure with no downtime necessary. If you have a low pain tolerance, you can speak with your doctor about applying a numbing agent prior to injections.
Why Use Dermal Filler for Hands?
By injecting Dermal filler in hands, you’ll see noticeable signs of volume and smoothing, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and plumping the thin flat skin. Hand rejuvenation procedures are a great way to turn around the clock on aging and prevent the skin from aging at a fast pace.
How long do Dermal Fillers Last
The injection is not permanent. Results typically last 6-10 months, and can last up to two years for some. The longevity of fillers under the skin depends on multiple factors. For example, your metabolism. The younger you are, the metabolism is working quicker and can essentially burn off the effects of Dermal filler quicker.
Are Hand Fillers Safe
Dermal fillers are safe and effective when certified medical professionals are administering the injections. With good communication between you and your service provider, you can get natural and safe results using Dermal filler for hands.
