1. In a nutshell what is hand rejuvenation?
We use our hands every day for almost every task that we do, therefore they are one of the first parts of our bodies to show the signs of ageing.
Over time our hands lose their volume, elasticity, veins begin to show, wrinkles appear, between the fingers appear hollow and skin becomes thinner.
Fortunately, there are many treatment options available to restore youthful hands. Dermal fillers are used to restore volume, Botox will reduce wrinkles and chemical peels can treat sun damaged hands and hyperpigmentation.
2. Who is suitable for hand rejuvenation?
At Dental & Skin we find that most patients are suitable for hand rejuvenation.
If you are concerned about lost volume, wrinkles on the hands, age spots, visible veins, thin skin and ageing hands in general, then you are a suitable candidate for hand rejuvenation.
We offer free consultations, pop by our Islington clinic to speak to our doctor and find out which treatment option is best for you.
3. What happens to our hands as we age?
Our hands are the most telling sign of our true age.
Hands that are not yet experiencing the signs of ageing are plump, have an even tone with no wrinkles and skin is firm.
As we age our fat pads begin to decrease and lose their volume as we approach our late twenties. This leads to the visibility of veins, knuckles and tendons.
4. Which treatment options are available?
At Dental & Skin, we offer hand rejuvenation treatment using Dermal Fillers, Botox and Chemical Peels.
Dermal fillers are the most popular option to restore volume and a youthful appearance to our hands.
Restylane is a great option for patients who want to build up volume and smooth out contours. This is because when injected, the doctor can mould the filler to the desired shape, and the patient can guide them too.
With Restylane you are less likely to experience any lumps.
Restylane is a good choice to improve hydration to the hands and restore moisture and firmness.
Restylane is made from hyaluronic acid, which dissolves naturally into the human body.
Restylane does not contain an anaesthetic. Therefore for patients who are susceptible to pain, a local anaesthetic is often necessary.
This type of dermal filler is recommended for patients from 35 to 60.
Radiesse unlike the other fillers is made from calcium hydroxylapatite. Radiesse will stimulate the production of collagen and provides a support to your skin whilst restoring volume.
Radiesse provides immediate results, which can depending on the patient need to be touched up.
Radiesse greatly improves the appearance of deep lines, wrinkles and acne scars.
Injecting Radiesse can be painful, if you have sensitive skin let your doctor know who can provide numbing cream.

Botox (Botulinum Toxin) is a skin treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and in doing so prevents the signs of ageing.
Botox is a quick and convenient treatment to smooth out those lines without any need for surgery.
Botox is injected into the muscular tissue, and can only be administered by a trained doctor.
Botox works by preventing the muscles in the target areas from contracting. When Botox is injected there is no transfer of a signal from the nerve to the muscle telling them to contract.
It is this contraction of muscles which create wrinkles and lines. Treated areas will experience less movement creating a smooth look.
