Our hands are the parts of our body where our age begins to show quite rapidly. This is due to the fact that our hands are exposed to daily chemicals and irritants like soaps and detergents and also because our hands are exposed to the sun and UV rays causing the skin to become damaged resulting in a more wrinkled, dehydrated,veiny look.
Dr Anita Dhunna uses dermal fillers to help reverse this aged look and help rejuvenate and replenish skin texture on the hands.
There are two types of dermal fillers that can be used for hand rejuvenation.
Ellanse is a collagen based dermal filler and is injected under the skin of the hands to give immediate lift. Local anaesthetic is used so the you don’t feel the dermal filler being placed. Ellanse then helps stimulate natural collagen to be built over a period of several months therefore producing a plumper more rejuvenated skin. Ellanse for hand rejuvenation has a long lasting effect of anywhere from 1-2 years.
This can be used in combination with Restylane Skinbooster, a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler. This attracts water and improves texture and hydration. Restylane Skinbooster is injected directly into the top layers of the skin with an extremely fine needle using a unique injector pen device, producing a more uniform, softer and smoother appearance to the hands.
An indepth 1-to-1 consultation with Dr Anita Dhunna will help determine which method would be best suited for your skin type to help give you back youthful looking hands.
