Beyond facial aging: Juvederm hand rejuvenation

When you think of aesthetic enhancement or anti-aging treatments, you may automatically think of facial rejuvenation. The face is the focal point of other’s attention, and the first place you notice visible signs of time. However, aging is not limited to the face. Your hands are nearly always visible, and the aging process takes a considerable, and noticeable, toll. Fortunately, anti-aging is not limited to the face either.

image Dermatology® provides comprehensive anti-aging treatment for residents of Montclair, Essex Fells, Glen Ridge, and other area communities. This includes hand rejuvenation, which can be accomplished with the same facial filler you know and love: Juvéderm.

How your hands show the years

The aging process, which is exacerbated by sun exposure, causes skin to become thinner and drier. The fatty layer beneath it thins. Collagen weakens, and new production slows. As you may know, these are among the factors leading to sagging, wrinkled facial skin. The same process occurs in the hands.

The skin on your hands can sag and wrinkle, just as the skin on your face can. However, lost volume and thinning of the skin has additional, and unsightly, effects on the hands. There is very little tissue covering the bones in a hand. Therefore, as the skin and supportive tissue thins, the knuckles become more predominant, and the bones cause noticeable ridges. Veins often become visible because there is not sufficient tissue to disguise them.

How Juvéderm helps

Juvéderm is a popular type of hyaluronic acid filler, which is especially prized for its smooth texture. In facial treatment, Juvéderm is often used for fine wrinkles and delicate contours, where texture is especially important. For the same reason, it is an excellent choice for hand rejuvenation. Tiny, precisely located injections restore the natural volume and contours of the hands, for a youthful appearance. This smooths the bony look of aged hands, disguises visible veins, and reduces wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging.
