Dermal Filler Restores Volume in Ageing Hands - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

As we get older, it's our hands that are one of the first areas that tend to show signs of ageing more than other parts of the body. Dry skin, wrinkles and sunspots on the hands are a dead giveaway about our age.

We use our hands all day, every day, whether it's housework, gardening or daily exposure to the weather. The sun, wind and rain, over the years, can cause our hands to become scaly, sun-damaged, wrinkled and veiny, and this all makes them look older than they are.

The hands, face and neck are the most visible areas of the body that are unclothed. People tend to concentrate their beauty regime on their face, using the best moisturisers, anti-ageing serums, sun-creams and make-up to help keep it looking as youthful as possible for as long as possible. The hands however, tend to be overlooked.

Over time the hands lose volume, fat and elasticity and become translucent and wrinkly and this results in the veins, tendons and bony structures becoming more apparent.

Before and after
There are many signs of ageing on the hands:
  • Age / Sun spots - We get pigmentation spots on the hands after years of exposure to the sun and without prevention they will multiply, so when you're applying sun cream, don't forget to rub it into your hands.
  • Prominent veins - Loss of volume that occurs with ageing will leave the hands thinner and bony, and this will make the veins more prominent. 
  • Dry skin -  As with the face, a dry, dull complexion will make your hands look older than they are, so putting on an emollient-rich hand cream will help to improve the skin. Always use a hand moisturiser on the hands as dry skin can make the skin look wrinkly.
  • Crepey skin - As we get older, the body produces less collagen. When the hands lose collagen, the skin on the hands gets thinner and starts to look dry and crumpled. UV light also results in collagen damage.
Exposure to the sun can quickly age your hands, but the bigger problem is volume loss. Dermal fillers will restore lost volume and plump up bony hands, making prominent veins look less obvious. A topical anesthetic gets applied before treatment and most dermal fillers contain anesthetic which makes the procedure much less painful and then dermal fillers are delicately inserted through small cannulas. The quality and texture of your skin improves with dermal filler treatment and decreases wrinkles and prominent veins.
