Hand Rejuvenation

Did you know…

As individuals age, their natural fat begins to deteriorate. As a result, wrinkles become more conspicuous, the skin begins to sag, and there is an overall reduction in volume. In order to counter these inevitable outcomes, one may want to turn to Restylane Lyft. Restylane Lyft is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel that helps to treat the loss in volume and appearance of wrinkles in the hands. The hyaluronic acid gives the skin a youthful and hydrated look while stimulating collagen production. Following the treatment, Restylane Lyft will help add fullness to the back of hands.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will the Restylane Lyft fillers last?

As per many aesthetic procedures, the time by which the results last may vary from patient to patient. As a general rule, the Restylane Lyft fillers can last for longer than 12 months when used to repair the fullness of the cheeks. However, with regards to treating wrinkles and folds, the fillers last for about six months. Subsequent injections are necessary in order to maintain the desired appearance for the skin. In fact, it has been found that the results of repeated injections in subsequent sessions tend to last longer than they did in the first session. 

What should patients do after receiving Restylane Lyft fillers?

Several things should be avoided following the injections in order to maintain the look of the injections while also achieving optimal results. First, makeup should be avoided for 24 hours following the injections. Additionally, exposure to the sun should be limited because the UV radiation can disrupt the hyaluronic acid that exists within the fillers. Following the injections, patients may feel some swelling, pain, bruising, tenderness, redness, and itching; such side effects are normal for about two weeks, but if they continually persist the doctor should be contacted. 

Do Restylane Lyft fillers hurt?

Similar to other injections, there tends to be a bit of pain and discomfort as the treatment occurs. However, topical numbing agents are used to minimize the pain of the injections. Additionally, Restylane Lyft contains lidocaine which has the capacity to further limit the pain and discomfort associated with the procedure.

Do patients look natural upon receiving Restylane Lyft injections?

Restylane Lyft is well known for producing very natural looking skin for patients upon treatment. In fact, many patients are able to return back to their normal daily routines following the injections.


If an individual has imperfections- like wrinkles and folds- in the hands, Radiesse is a product that many turn to. Collagen is a protein that is responsible for the strength and elasticity of your skin; Radiesse is a dermal filler that stimulates the production of natural collagen within your body. As a result, injections fill in wrinkles while helping your skin develop new collagen. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How do Radiesse treatments work?

The treatments are performed in the office and the patient is able to return home right after the procedure. The injection process typically lasts no longer than 15 minutes.

How long will it take for the results to be visible? 

Generally, the Radiesse results are visible immediately after the appointment. However, full and desired results are achieved within about a week of the treatment. 

How long do the results last?

The results from Radiesse are relatively long lasting. Many patients repeat the procedure involving Radiesse about two years following the last treatment in order to maintain the optimal appearance in either the face or hands.

Who is a good candidate for Radiesse?

Typically, mature adults ranging from about 35-60 years old are those who would turn to Radiesse treatments. Those with wrinkling around the nose, mouth, and forehead are considered the most suitable for the injections.
