Is There any Pain Involved with Hand Rejuvenation Injections?
The information on this page serves to provide you with a basic, yet detailed overview of hand rejuvenation. It is important however, if you are seriously considering a hand rejuvenation treatment, to consult with one of our qualified, experienced Nurse Injectors for more information tailored to your specific situation and expectations.
While much attention is focused on rejuvenation of the face, aged hands are often neglected by consumers of cosmetic beauty products, despite the fact that they can often more easily reveal your true age. As a result, hand injections with dermal fillers are becoming increasingly popular, as they are an effective treatment for rejuvenating the appearance of aging hands, and imparting a fresher, healthier look.
Often times, one of the easiest ways to determine a person’s age at a glance is to simply look at their hands, not their face. While it is common to take care of the your facial skin on a daily basis, apply sunscreen to the face, wear a hat when outdoors, and undergo regular facial cosmetic treatments, the same attention and care is often not lavished on the hands. It is for this reason that your appearance may seem many years younger than you actually are, based on your face. At the same time, it’s possible that the wrinkles on your hands, prominent hand veins and bones, or discoloration on the back of your hands may be telling a different story about your age. New techniques in hand rejuvenation however, now allow this tell-tale sign of aging to be treated and reversed.
Our hands tend to be one of the first problem areas that begin to show visible signs of aging, because we use them so much and they get so much exposure. The natural effects of aging, as well as exposure to sunlight are the main cause of this appearance.
The most common visible signs of aging when it comes to the hands include spots of discolouration (sometimes called “age spots”). Hands also tend to lose fatty tissue as we age, giving our hands a scrawny, bony appearance. Cosmetic hand rejuvenation treatments using injectable dermal fillers can result in a big improvement and refresh your hands to appear younger and healthier.
With the increasing interest in the various cosmetic surgery procedures for hands, including injectable fillers, it is important that if you are considering these treatments, that you research and understand the various aspects of cosmetic hand rejuvenation, including what the procedure can and cannot treat, whether you’re a good candidate for hand rejuvenation, any inherent risks or side effects, costs, the recovery time, preparation before the procedure, and other relevant factors.

The length of the procedure depends on the extent of the injections required, but they can typically be completed within 30 minutes. Injections are made in the spaces between the fingers using a very fine needle. Afterwards, your hands will be massaged to promote the spread and even distribution of filler across your hands. After the procedure, cold packs can be applied to your hands, to aid in healing. The results from this procedure will be evident immediately and will typically last for a minimum of six months.
Before a patient receives dermal filler injections, a skin test is usually performed to determine whether the patient may be allergic to the treatment. This is usually done with an adequate amount of time before the first round of injections to ensure the patient can safely undergo the procedure. During that time the patient should keep an eye on the test site for any indications of redness, itching, swelling or other potential reactions. If any of these should occur, the patient should contact our clinic and let us know.
The actual dermal filler injections themselves are typically quick to perform, usually lasting around 30 minutes to an hour. The Nurse Injector will inject the cosmetic filler at several points along the area to be treated, just under the surface of the skin.
Whether to reverse the signs of aging, prevent aging, or enhance your natural beauty, the team at Skinjectables can help you achieve your aesthetic goals for natural-looking results worth investing in.
