FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HAND REJUVENATION?
Our bodies are just as susceptible to the signs of aging as our faces, yet the vast majority of time and money is spent on addressing facial issues such as wrinkles, lines, sagging skin, and pigmentation - this can lead to a slightly 'odd' appearance of a youthful face but aged hands. Our hands are constantly on display. Not only do they get a lot of sun that causes them to age faster, but they're also constantly on display every time we shake someone's hand or touch our face. Our hands may reveal our age even if our faces do not. Prominent veins and tendons hasten the appearance of aging on our hands. Most people assume there’s nothing that can be done for aging hands. But they just didn't know about Hand Rejuvenation yet.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS OF HAND REJUVENATION LAST FOR?
Hand rejuvenation treatments are quick and highly effective, with results visible almost immediately. Additionally, there is no downtime, so you can return to work immediately after the procedure. Because it stimulates collagen production, Sculptra injections produce considerably longer-lasting benefits. Many patients experience results that last up to a year after treatment, but potentially up to 15 months.
WILL THE DERMAL FILLER HARDEN AND BE NOTICEABLE AFTERWARDS?
No. Following the procedure the dermal filler injected will emulate the appearance of the surrounding tissue. Although sometimes there may be a small lump where the dermal filler has collected, this side effect can be easily massaged away.
HOW MANY INJECTIONS ARE TYPICALLY INVOLVED IN THE TREATMENT?
The total number of injections required will be determined by the extent of the treatment needed for each patient. Your lifestyle, skin type, and age all have an impact on the condition of your skin, and this determines how many injections you may require. As a reference, most hand rejuvenation procedures typically involve 5-7 injections per hand.
HOW SAFE ARE DERMAL FILLERS?
Take comfort in knowing that dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in the body (HA). HA can be naturally broken down by the body and reabsorbed into the body overtime. Moreover, allergy rates are extremely low, with only 1 in 20,000 people experiencing any kind of reaction.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS ASSOCIATED WITH DERMAL FILLERS?
Most of the side effects associated with dermal fillers are related to the action of injecting the skin rather than the product itself. Redness, minor swelling, itching, tenderness around the injection site, and potential lumps in the treated area are some of the symptoms. Massage therapy can help to lessen them during the aftercare. It is important to note that allergic reactions to dermal fillers are extremely rare, with only 1 in 20,000 patients reporting a reaction.
WHICH OTHER AREAS CAN DERMAL FILLERS TREAT?
Dermal fillers can be used in various areas of the face, most notably the lower half. Secondary to plumping up the lips, dermal fillers are frequently used to correct lines and lost volume around the forehead, cheeks, and upper lip. They can also be used to smooth out nose-to-mouth lines and mouth-to-chin lines. We encourage you to check out our range of treatments involving dermal fillers and consider expanding your results by combining procedures.
