Our hands are one of the most important features we have to interact with our environment. They are also a sign of beauty and health. Over time, the hands can be an early area to demonstrate signs of aging due to sun exposure, the amount we use them everyday, and the natural aging process. Some common concerns and areas that are requested to address are:
- Prominent tendons and bands on the back of the hand.
- Prominent veins on the back of the hand.
- Loss of a youthful, fullness to the hand.
- Excess loose skin.
- The development of new skin changes and pigmentation.
There are several procedures and techniques that can be used to restore a more youthful appearance to the hands. This may involve the use of non-permanent soft tissue fillers, or micro fat injection, to recreate a healthy fullness to the hand, and minimize the prominence of other structures. As well, the direct removal of new skin changes and moles can help with the rejuvenation. Dr. Seal would be happy to discuss your concerns and goals relating to the appearance of your hands and help you decide whether a specific type of hand rejuvenation would be a good option to help achieve your individual goals and feel great about the way your hands look and feel.
To learn how these procedures can make a great difference in the way your hands look and feel, request a consultation with Dr. Seal, or call our office at (604) 569-2895 to schedule an appointment. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you learn more about the procedure on the road to achieving all of your aesthetic goals.
Hand Rejuvenation Considerations
Hand rejuvenation procedures can be performed under local anaesthetic. You will be able to go home after the procedure to relax and recover. Most patients recover well over the first week, and should be able to return to all of their regular activities within 3-5 days. There may be some swelling and bruising that can last for several weeks, and because of this, you may wish to ensure you do not have any important social engagements or recreational events around the time of your surgery. There may be some restrictions from exercise over the first few weeks, depending on what type of rejuvenation you decide to undergo. Dr. Seal will see you in the office over the recovery period to review all of the important information with you and ensure you are doing well.
