Hand Rejuvenation Consultation and Consent Form
Emergency Contact Details
What is hand rejuvenation treatment?
As you get older, the skin on your hands is one of the first areas to show signs of ageing. The skin becomes thinner and is subject to daily wear and tear. Your hands lose volume, fat and elasticity, especially after the menopause, becoming translucent and shrivelled so that tendons and veins show more easily and age spots can appear. The loss of muscle bulk between fingers creates hollows, making hands look bony.
The skin on your hands is naturally thin but becomes thinner and rougher with time and with constant exposure to the sun and the elements.
An anti-ageing hand lift for smoother, fresher-looking skin and less prominent hand veins can be achieved through dermal filler treatment. The treatment is progressively rejuvenating and long-lasting with natural looking results.
It is an injectable dermal filler with a unique mode of action. It corrects wrinkles on hands by adding volume to regain skin elasticity; it also works as a collagen stimulator, giving skin an immediate lifting and contouring effect.
Young skin has volume, elasticity and strength due to its natural collagen. The treatment contains calcium-based microspheres (CaHA) to stimulate the production of the body’s own collagen for sustained effects.
What can hand rejuvenation treatment be used for?
Hand rejuvenation improves the quality and texture of your skin while decreasing wrinkles and prominent veins.
A hand lift is an injectable dermal filler and collagen stimulator with a precise mode of action to correct volume loss in the back of wrinkly hands and improve skin quality.
How soon will I notice the results?
The treatment provides an immediate lifting and tightening effect for volume with visible rejuvenation. Because it also acts as a collagen stimulator, results are progressive and long lasting.
How long does a hand lift treatment last?
The unique formulation of the treatment stimulates the production of new collagen, with a lifting and contouring effect that can last up to one year or more.
Does hand rejuvenation treatment hurt?
There is very little pain associated with this treatment as the needles used are every small and the products used contain lidocaine, which numbs the area to maximize comfort of each patient.
Is there any downtime after hand rejuvenation treatment?
There is no downtime needed after this simple, quick and very effective treatment.
What are the most common adverse effects after hand rejuvenation treatment?
Soreness, bruising, swelling are the most common adverse effects after the procedure. The swelling may increase over the next 24 hours, causing pressure and sore feeling in the hands, but it is temporary.
After the treatment(s) some common injection-related reactions may occur, such as swelling, redness, pain, itching, discoloration and tenderness at the injection site but generally they are not significant. These typically resolve spontaneously within 2 to 10 days.
Mild bruising or a slight blush might appear at the injection site immediately following treatment and may last for 2-10 days.
All of the below increase bruising. To avoid swelling and bruising, you should avoid taking:
- Aleve or Advil for 1 week before and 2 days after
- Paracetamol/Tylenol is fine
- Vitamin E (or multivitamin) or St. John’s Wort for 2-3 days before or after
