Your hands are one of the first areas on your body that will show the negative effects of age. Even if you always apply sunscreen and use high-quality skincare products, your hands will lose volume and develop wrinkles over time. Fortunately, addressing these issues and achieving smooth, youthful-looking hands is easier than ever before. At Radiant Divine Medical Spa in Avon, Ohio, we can use Restylane Lyft to renew the appearance of your hands.
How Can I Make My Hands Look Younger? Learn About Restylane Lyft
Restylane Lyft is an injectable product that can rejuvenate your hands. This filler uses a gentle substance called hyaluronic acid to accomplish this task.
At the beginning of your life, your skin naturally has high levels of this acid. However, your body will make less of this acid as you age. When we inject this treatment, it will increase your hyaluronic acid levels and make your hands look younger and more attractive. This substance is specifically designed to create natural-looking, lasting changes in your hands.
To accomplish this task, this injectable product contains large particles of hyaluronic acid that are great at minimizing deep lines and wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid contained in this substance is also very similar to the acid that your body naturally produces. This similarity will improve your body’s response to this filler and allow you to achieve more lasting changes in the appearance of your hands.
Why Have My Hands Lost Volume and Developed Wrinkles?
Even if you live a healthy lifestyle and take very good care of your skin, the appearance of your hands will change over time. There are a number of factors that will influence how your hands age over the course of your lifetime.
Collagen is a fibrous protein that supports and strengthens the structure of your skin. As you get older, your body will begin to make less of this useful substance. Although decreased collagen production is normal, this change will negatively impact your appearance.
In particular, your skin will become less flexible and elastic as your collagen levels decrease. As a result, you will develop creases and wrinkles on your hands.
Thinning Skin and Fat Loss
The skin on your hands will become thinner as you age, and the fat on your hands will begin to atrophy. Your thinning skin and fat loss will cause the veins and tendons on your hands to become more visible.
How Should I Prepare for My Injections?
Preparing for your hand rejuvenation treatment is a simple process, and you will not have to interrupt your work schedule or exercise routine before your appointment.
That said, we will tell you to stop drinking alcohol for a week before you receive your injections. Further, you should not take blood-thinning medications, St. John’s Wort, garlic supplements, multivitamins, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs during this time.
Will My Injections Take a Long Time to Administer?
You’ll receive your injections in our beautiful office in Avon, Ohio. Since this is a minimally invasive treatment, you will not need to receive general anesthesia during your appointment.
Although your treatment will be personalized to fit the unique condition of your hands, your appointment will usually take about forty-five minutes to complete.
During your appointment, we will carefully inject the product into your hands. This product contains lidocaine. This is a local anesthetic that will numb your skin and allow you to remain comfortable during the injection process.
Will I Have a Long Recovery Period After I Receive My Injections?
This treatment has an extremely quick recovery period. After you receive your injections, you will be free to drive yourself back to your home or office.
Although you can resume your usual schedule, we will advise you to avoid exposing your hands to extensive sunlight for a couple of days. In addition, you should not engage in rigorous physical activity during this time.
Further, you should not drink alcohol or take certain medications and supplements for a week. During your appointment, we will give you detailed instructions about the specific substances that you should avoid.
How Much Product Will I Receive?
The amount of filler that we inject into your hands will vary depending on your aesthetic goals, the condition of your hands, and other factors. For example, if you have lost a significant amount of volume in your hands, you will probably receive more filler.
If you would like to achieve more moderate changes in your hands, you will receive less filler. That said, it’s common to receive one to two syringes per hand, and you should expect to receive at least one syringe in each of your hands.
When Will I Notice Positive Changes?
This product works very quickly, and you will see immediate changes in the appearance of your hands. After we inject the product into your body, the filler will immediately restore some volume to your hands. At this point, your wrinkles and lines will become less prominent and the texture of your skin will become smoother.
In addition to creating instant improvements in your hands, this filler will also create positive changes over time. In the days after you receive your treatment, the hyaluronic acid will start to moisturize your skin. This process will allow your skin to become more elastic and flexible. This additional moisture will add more volume to your skin and decrease the prominence of the wrinkles and lines on your hands.
How Long Will My Improvements Last?
This product contains a unique formula that is designed to produce long-lasting enhancements in your hands. Although your individual results will vary, it’s normal for your improvements to last for up to six months. In fact, 76% of people in a clinical trial still had noticeable improvements in their hands six months after they received their injections.
After this point, you can preserve your youthful-looking hands by getting touch-up injections. During your initial meeting with us, we can design a customized maintenance schedule for you.
How Can I Preserve My New Look?
Taking good care of your hands will extend the longevity of your results and allow you to look younger for a longer period of time. To prevent your hands from receiving sun damage that will cause you to develop additional wrinkles and lines, you should always wear a high-quality sunscreen on your hands. You should reapply this sunscreen regularly when you are outside.
Since your hands can easily become dehydrated, you should also moisturize them every day and avoid using harsh soaps that can aggravate your skin.
During your appointment, we can provide you with more details about how to preserve the benefits of your injections. We may also provide you with a high-quality hand care kit.
Can I Use This Injectable Product to Improve Other Features on My Body?
This injectable product isn’t just for your hands. We can also use Restylane Lyft to minimize wrinkles and lines on your face. This filler is great at erasing marionette lines around your mouth. It can also reduce the prominence of your laugh lines.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Hand Rejuvenation Method?
If you are a generally healthy adult who is bothered by volume loss or wrinkles on your hands, you are probably a good candidate for this injectable treatment. Since this product uses gentle ingredients to improve your appearance, you are likely to have a good response to this treatment.
However, it’s important to understand that this hand rejuvenation method is not suitable for everyone. In particular, you cannot receive this injectable treatment if you have an allergy to lidocaine or to the proteins that are used to make the hyaluronic acid contained in this product. Further, you must not have a history of severe allergies.
In addition to allergies, certain medical conditions may prevent you from receiving this treatment. As a result, you should tell us if you have received any medical procedures that affect your hands or if you have a history of hand trauma. In addition, please tell us if you have Raynaud’s disease or Raynaud’s phenomenon.
What Other Techniques Can I Use to Improve the Appearance of My Hands?
At Radiant Divine Medical Spa, we can use many different techniques to minimize your wrinkles and enhance the appearance of your hands.
During a chemical peel, we will apply a customized chemical solution to your hands. This solution will remove dead skin cells from the surface of your hands. Removing these dead cells can minimize wrinkles, address hyperpigmentation, and strengthen the skin on your hands.
Depending on the severity of the wrinkles on your hands, you might receive a light, medium, or deep chemical peel. Each type of peel will be personalized to fit your unique needs.
For instance, during a light chemical peel, we will apply gentle chemicals and peeling agents to your skin. These chemicals will improve the texture and color of the skin on your hands without causing you to experience discomfort or irritation.
Venus Viva is a state-of-the-art treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to improve the appearance of your hands. During this treatment, we will use a specialized method to send energy into your hands and make tiny wounds in your skin.
This process will improve your body’s production of collagen and reduce the wrinkles on your hands. This comfortable, minimally invasive treatment takes only fifteen to thirty minutes to complete.
During a dermalinfusion treatment, we will inject customized serums into your hands. We can use these serums to treat a number of issues, including wrinkles, oily skin, hyperpigmentation, and dry skin. This treatment can be used on all skin tones, and you won’t have any downtime after your appointment is complete.
Microneedling is an excellent way to erase creases and lines from your hands.
