What can I expect from hand rejuvenation?

In the Toronto area, Dr. Plant uses both Radiesse, a dermal filler, and fat transfer (fat grafting) to restore the youthful look of your hands. Your hand rejuvenation procedure in Toronto can smooth skin and create a younger, fresher, appearance to the hands. When using a dermal filler such as Radiesse, you will notice immediate improvement of the volume loss of your hands, improving the bony look.

Over the following months there will be an increase in collagen in the skin of the hand, resulting in a longer-lasting improvement in the appearance and texture of skin.

Results with hand rejuvenation treatment can last for up to two years. For patients wanting more permanent results, your hand rejuvenation treatment may include transferring fat tissue into the hand from other parts of the body which will also restore lost volume and improve the texture of the skin.

Am I a candidate for hand rejuvenation?

Hands, in addition to the face and neck, are parts of the body that truly show your age. Over time your hands are typically exposed to the elements which take their toll on the skin. Age and genetics also contribute to a loss of volume and a thinning of the skin, resulting in a papery appearance. Veins in your hands become more noticeable as tissue volume naturally decreases. Wrinkles and lines can form after continual use and brown spots can form from sun exposure.

Unless you are wearing gloves, people can see your hands and even if the rest of you looks fantastic, your hands often give your age away. A hand rejuvenation treatment in Toronto can give you relief from these symptoms and restore the youthful appearance of your hands. Dr. Plant has helped many patients in the Toronto area get the look they desire.

Fat grafts or fat transfer

When patients elect for a fat grafting technique for hand rejuvenation, they can expect shallow hand areas to experience a new lift and more youthful appearance. Dr. Plant first takes fat tissue from a more plentiful area of the body, like the thighs or stomach, and then injects the harvested tissue into various areas of the hands. This process can leave your hands looking more full and rejuvenated. The improvements seen with fat grafting can last up to 10 years.

Radiesse

As a board-certified plastic surgeon in the Toronto area, Dr. Mathew Plant can identify what areas of your hands may benefit from Radiesse. This is a minimally invasive treatment and has very little downtime involved. Treatment with Radiesse involves injecting small amounts of the volumizing filler gel into different areas of the hands. After a hand rejuvenation treatment with Radiesse, many patients notice their wrinkles and depressions in their hands become softer and fuller.
