Turning Back the Clock with Hand Fillers!6 min read

Turning Back the Clock with Hand Fillers!
Aesthetica badges

As we age, the skin on our hands thins out, revealing veins, tendons, and bones. 

Fortunately, there’s an innovative solution available: hand fillers. 

Juvéderm stands out as an outstanding hand filler solution among the top rejuvenation choices!

Why Hands Show Aging Signs First

Many think the face is the primary indicator of age. 

But our hands often betray our years even more prominently. 

Let’s delve into why hands frequently show the earliest signs of aging

Constant Environmental Exposure

Hands experience more direct exposure to environmental factors than most other body parts. 

We use our hands for almost everything, meaning they come into contact with various substances and conditions daily. 

This constant exposure makes them more vulnerable to the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays, leading to premature aging, sun spots, and fine lines. 

In addition, city living exposes our hands to pollutants and other environmental toxins that accelerate aging.

The Gradual Loss of Natural Fat

As we age, the natural fat in our hands begins to diminish

This loss causes the skin on our hands to thin out, making underlying structures like veins, tendons, and bones more visible. 

With decreased cushioning, the hands show a more skeletal and aged appearance. 

While facial skin also experiences fat loss over time, the impact on our hands is often more noticeable due to their lack of subcutaneous fat.

Continuous Wear and Tear from Regular Use

Our hands are in perpetual motion. 

Regular and repetitive movements—from opening jars and typing on keyboards to washing dishes— cause wear and tear on the skin and joints. 

Such constant use of the hands leads to fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. 

Furthermore, the repeated stretching of the skin decreases skin elasticity, making hands appear older.

Introducing Juvéderm: The Answer to Aging Hands

Juvéderm has emerged as a front-runner in hand rejuvenation

While many associate this treatment exclusively with facial enhancements, its benefits extend far beyond.

Why Juvéderm Is Ideal for Hand Rejuvenation

 

  • Tailored for Thin Skin: The skin on our hands is notably thin, making it susceptible to volume loss. Juvéderm addresses this aging sign by delivering the necessary hydration and volume, reducing the appearance of veins and tendons.
  • Swift Procedure with Barely Any Interruptions: The entire process—from consultation to completion—often takes 20-30 minutes. This speed ensures patients can schedule appointments during lunch breaks or between other commitments. 
  • Smooth Consistency: Juvéderm is a soft gel, unlike some fillers that appear lumpy or uneven. The consistency ensures that once injected, it spreads evenly, giving the hands a natural, rejuvenated look.
  • Achieve a Subtle and Natural Elegance: While cosmetic treatments aim to enhance, nobody wants results that scream, ‘I had work done.’ Juvéderm excels in providing a balanced and natural outcome. Thanks to its smooth consistency and skilled administration by practitioners, the treated hands showcase a refined elegance, where the hands appear naturally youthful, not artificially altered!
  • Adaptable Volume Restoration: The hands need volume, but they also need it strategically placed. Juvéderm allows practitioners to accurately target areas of volume loss, ensuring that the hands regain a youthful contour without appearing overfilled.
  • Immediate, Long-Lasting Transformation: One of the appealing aspects of Juvéderm is the immediacy of results. Post-treatment, the hands instantly appear more youthful. Moreover, these results are not fleeting; they last a year or even longer!

A Deeper Look into the Juvéderm Hand Filler Procedure

Opting for Juvéderm for hand rejuvenation involves a simple yet meticulous process. 

Here’s a detailed walk-through of what one can expect during this transformative journey:

Preparing Your Hands for Treatment

Practitioners thoroughly clean the hands to remove dirt, oils, or residual products. 

This step maintains hygiene and ensures the filler interacts directly with the skin without any barriers.

Administering Numbing Agents for a Comfortable Experience

While Juvéderm injections are generally well-tolerated, patient comfort remains paramount. 

To make the experience as pleasant as possible, practitioners often apply a numbing cream to the hands. 

This cream desensitizes the area, ensuring patients feel minimal discomfort during injection.

Precise Injection of the Juvéderm Filler

Using a fine needle, practitioners skillfully inject Juvéderm into specific areas of the indicators that require volume and rejuvenation. 

The expertise lies in not just where to place the filler but also in how much to use. 

The goal is to achieve a harmonious balance—where the hands gain volume without appearing overfilled!

Ensuring Uniformity with Gentle Massage

Once they’ve administered the filler, your practitioner will gently massage the treated areas. 

This step is crucial for a couple of reasons. 

First, it helps evenly distribute the Juvéderm, preventing lumps or inconsistencies. 

Second, massaging the area aids in shaping the filler, ensuring it aligns seamlessly with the natural contours of the hands.

Aftercare and What to Expect

After the treatment, you might experience slight swelling or bruising. 

Still, these side effects are temporary and will subside within a few days. It’s advisable to avoid strenuous activities for a day or two and keep the hands elevated to minimize swelling.
