As you age, your skin naturally loses its volume, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. This occurs anywhere on the body, but it’s the most prominent on the face, neck and hands. If you think you have to undergo a painful surgery to restore your skin’s youthfulness, you’re in luck. Dermal fillers are one of the best ways to restore lost volume in your hands without invasive surgeries or extensive recovery times. One of the best dermal fillers for doing this is Juvederm Voluma®.
Why Juvederm Voluma® for Your Hands?
Your hands age quickly because they’re constantly exposed to the elements, and it’s an area often overlooked in terms of sun protection. Even if you’re diligent with sun protection, your hands will naturally start to age because the fat layer disappears. This isn’t preventable, and once it’s gone, it’s gone for good. Outdated treatments required fat transfers, taking fat from other areas of the body and injecting it into the hands.
Fat transfers aren’t guaranteed to last very long because not all of the fat cells survive the transfer. Multiple procedures are often necessary before the desired results are reached. Dermal fillers like Juvederm Voluma®, however, result in longer-lasting results with a minimal need for follow-up treatments.
What is Juvederm Voluma®?
This is an injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid, a natural component found in the skin. It is most commonly used as a facial filler in restoring volume to cheekbones, but plastic surgeons are finding it’s incredibly useful in volume restoration in the hands, too.
How Does the Procedure Work?
Many patients are concerned about the discomfort associated with injections in the hands, but the discomfort is very minimal. Juvederm Voluma® actually contains a small amount of lidocaine to significantly reduce any discomfort.
When you arrive for your appointment, you’ll have your hands cleansed to remove any oils or dirt. The gel is then slowly injected to avoid putting too much in. The appointment shouldn’t take any longer than an hour, if it even takes that long. There is virtually no recovery associated with your Juvederm Voluma® injections.
