If your hands have begun to exhibit the signs of aging, we have the perfect solution that can restore volume, improve the skin’s health, and deliver some long-lasting, anti-aging results. At our Radiant Divine Medical Spa locations located in Avon, Brecksville, Medina, and Chagrin Falls, OH, we offer hand rejuvenation, a treatment that will help transform the appearance of your aging hands.
What Is Hand Rejuvenation?
Hand rejuvenation is a specialized treatment that we offer to help combat the signs of aging that affect the hands. This treatment can restore youth to your hands in different ways. As you age, your skin thins and its structure weakens, which not only affects your face but your hands as well.
Bony protrusions, veins, and tendons become more visible as the hands age and experience collagen and elastin loss in the deeper layers. We offer a hand rejuvenation with Restylane Lyft, an effective dermal filler that restores youth and volume to the hands in a quick treatment that delivers long-lasting results.
What Causes Aging Hands?
The aging process affects your hands in different ways. Still, the most common signs of aging on the hands include thin skin, dark spots and discoloration, uneven fat distribution, and collagen loss. This results in visible veins, tendons, and bones.
When you start to notice the signs of aging on your hands, you need more than just a good hand cream to reverse the damage. You need something that can support the internal layers of your skin structure and resolve volume loss in a way that topical products simply cannot. That’s where Restylane Lyft comes in.
Restylane Lyft for the Hands
Dermal fillers can treat more than just the face. They can inject volume back into the hands to rejuvenate their appearance. Restylane Lyft is a dermal filler composed of a hyaluronic acid formulation containing the largest particles in the entire Restylane line. Not only is this filler capable of treating deep, severe lines around the mouth, but it also helps treat and improve the appearance of the hands.
What To Expect
Rejuvenating the hands with Restylane Lyft works is a two-phase process. Once you receive an initial injection with this product into your hands, you’ll experience a visible and immediate plumping effect. Your results will continue to improve over time as the hyaluronic acid particles integrate between the epidermis and the deeper layers of the skin.
This process adds volume to the hands, smoothes lines and wrinkles, and makes the areas between the bones and tendons appear less visible. Your skin will look more voluminous and elastic, and lines, folds, and creases will disappear. Your results will continue to improve in the weeks following your treatment as the filler settles in the area.
The Treatment Process
If you feel as though aging has affected the appearance of your hands to the point that even the most potent wrinkle creams don’t make a difference, you may be a good candidate for hand rejuvenation. Once we evaluate your areas of concern and review your medical history to determine that Restylane Lyft is a good option for you, we can design your treatment plan.
Some patients will need one syringe for their hands; others will need two. Most need at least one syringe to achieve the most youthful-looking hands. We will determine how much product will best meet your aesthetic needs during your consultation so that you know what to expect during the injection process.
When you arrive for your appointment, we will carefully clean the treatment sites on the hands to prepare them for the injection process. Then one of our trained injectors will administer a series of injections into precise locations on your hands to add volume as needed. The appointment is quick and will be complete within a few minutes.
At our office, we use a specialized micro-cannula technique when administering this filler. Our injector will administer Restylane Lyft below the skin’s surface above any visible tendons to hide them and restore volume to the area. You can also treat your face during the same appointment to address other aging concerns.
Once injected with this filler, your hands will look rejuvenated, and you will experience long-lasting results. Most patients experience results that last up to six months based on how quickly their bodies metabolize the ingredients in the product formulation.
When you start to notice a change in the appearance of your hands, you can schedule a follow-up treatment, and we can add volume and improve the appearance of your hands so that you can feel confident about their appearance.
Our hand rejuvenation treatment doesn’t just end with dermal fillers; it will also include three laser treatments to help target and improve the skin on your hands. Fillers improve the appearance of the hands, but they won’t give you better skin.
Age spots and discoloration on the hands cannot be treated with a dermal filler. They need the power of laser treatments to destroy discolored areas by breaking up the pigment and rejuvenate the skin and in a quick yet effective treatment.
Rejuvenating Your Hands With a Hand Care Kit
After you receive your Restylane Lyft injections and undergo three laser treatments to help rejuvenate the skin on your hands, you’ll need the right products to help you continue to care for your hands after your treatment.
An at-home skincare routine is an important part of enhancing and maintaining your results long-term. We will provide you with the right products so you can help care for your skin daily and avoid further damage and ward off the signs of aging between treatments.
Maintaining Your Results at Home
Skincare treatments and fillers can improve the appearance of your hands and even completely transform them. However, to enhance and maintain the anti-aging results that follow your treatment, you need to be consistent and develop a skincare routine specifically formulated for your hands. Your hands can age quicker than your face because they are often exposed to the sun without protection.
Additionally, they can get dry and damaged from cleaning, washing dishes, or doing any other work that involves your hands. To maintain your hand rejuvenation treatment results, there are some steps you can take to protect your skin and help maintain a youthful appearance long-term.
The sun is the number one cause of premature aging, and one of the simplest ways to avoid premature aging after your treatment is to apply sunscreen and avoid the sun. Applying sunscreen to your hands will help protect your skin daily when you’re outside, driving, or in any situation where your hands are exposed to full sun. There are plenty of hand creams that contain SPF that will help nourish your skin and keep it from sun damage.
Since the skin on your hands is thin, that skin can easily become overly dry if it doesn’t receive adequate hydration. Investing in a high-quality moisturizer specifically designed to target aging on hands will help you maintain adequate skin hydration in the area. A good moisturizer can also help combat lines and wrinkles and enhance your treatment results so that you can maintain the most youthful hands long-term.
Am I a Candidate for Hand Rejuvenation?
If you’ve noticed that aging has gotten the best of your hands, you may be the perfect candidate for this rejuvenating treatment that is specifically designed to restore youth to the hands.

Whether the signs of aging on your hands are mild or more severe, we can help design a perfect treatment plan that can transform your hands and restore youth.
