Hand aesthetics refers to a range cosmetic surgical procedures performed with the intention of reducing the aging appearance of your hands.
Why you consider hand rejuvenation
Along with our face, our hands also show signs that we are aging. Unlike our face, we look at our hands many, many times a day, so we see those constant reminders that we are getting older. From a loss of collagen to thinning of the skin, or greater prominence of veins to the appearance of brown markings known as liver spots or sun spots, the effects are hard to disguise.
Hand rejuvenation procedures are becoming an increasingly popular means to turn back the clock when it comes to the aged appearance of your hands, and unlike a number of other cosmetic enhancement procedures, those for hand rejuvenation are nominally invasive.
What is involved in hand rejuvenation aesthetics?
While there are creams and lotions available to combat the effects of drying skin, micorodermabrasion can encourage the regrowth of collagen to aid the rejuvenation of skin and reduction in the color of sun spots. However, there are more-effective and longer lasting treatments available.
Laser treatment are extremely effective at treating liver spots or sun spots through repeated treatments of intense pulse light (IPL) which activates genes and in turn the production of collagen and elastin.
Dermal fillers can be injected into the hand, usually made of an aqueous gel which breaks down over time and becomes absorbed by the body. Such a treatment usually lasts up to a year before requiring repeating.
Lipomodelling involves harvesting small amounts of fat from you body, purifying in a centrifuge and then injected into the hand to restore volume under the skin and which has a longer-lasting effect.
Where veins are particularly prominent in an aging hand, these can be removed by a process called sclerotherapy.
If you have travelled from afar and have opted an all-inclusive package, you will be collected from your hotel and taken to the hospital for your procedure and, once discharged, you will be driven back to your hotel as part of our all-inclusive service.
Hand rejuvenation as part of a multiple cosmetic procedure
More and more often we perform aesthetic surgery as part of a multiple cosmetic procedure. This type of surgery can be performed alongside a facelift or neck lift, as these procedures greatly complement each other.
Hand rejuvenation procedures are usually performed under a local anaesthetic and do not require an overnight stay in hospital, so are considered to be outpatient procedures. As the nature of the hand rejuvenation treatment can vary considerably, if you have any questions you would like to ask before booking your cosmetic surgery procedure with us, please get in contact and we will be happy to provide you with all the answers you need.
