Hand Rejuvenation

Hand rejuvenation procedures are available at our clinic in Richmond Hill.

Do hands give away your age?  Unfortunately, they do.  Face often gets most of the focus in cosmetic treatments, while hands suffer from ageing in the same way.  There are several procedures our clinic can offer to make your hands look younger.

The delicate skin on hands is vulnerable to the process of ageing.  Sun spots, wrinkles are the result of our hand exposure to the elements, but decreasing subcutaneous tissue is responsible for appearance of veins and tendons.

We use few methods to rejuvenate hands:

One of the methods is intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment for removal of skin pigmentation and vascular lesions. This treatment is performed using the best equipment in the industry, results of which undergo clinical tests and approval.

For hand volume restoration, the injection of fillers like Radiesse® is used by Dr. Robertus. The volume restoration treatment gives instant and lasting (up to 18 months) result and helps to reduce appearance of veins and tendons on back of the hands.

It is possible to combine both treatments to achieve best and lasting results.

How the procedure is done?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment is done on our state of the art IPL equipment.  The procedure takes 10-15 minutes. It may take several procedures to achieve desirable result.

Injections are done by Dr. Robertus with very fine needles directly in problem areas of hands.  Amount of discomfort usually is minimal.  Numbing injections can be used individually.  The procedure usually takes 10-15 minutes. Ice packs are applied to the treated area for 10-15 minutes at the end of the procedure.  You may return to your usual activities immediately after the procedure.  You may experience some hand swelling which should resolve in 7 days.

Is this procedure for me?

Suitability for this procedure is determined by physician during your visit to our clinic, however, you should bear in mind that you cannot have filler injections if:

  • you are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • the skin in the sites of planned treatment is infected;
  • you bleed easily
  • you take anticoagulation or anti-inflammatory medications (have to stop 5 days before)
  • you take vitamin E (have to stop 5 days before)
  • you are allergic to component to specific filler

What to do and expect after injections?

Following the procedure you

  • must avoid touching and should not massage injection points for 2-3 hours;
  • you can wash your hands as usual in 1 hour after the procedure.

You may experience bruising and swelling of the hands, which should last no more than 1 week. It is recommended to apply ice packs to injection site several times a day for 10-15 minutes.  Generally, effect of injection lasts for up to 18 months and gradually diminishes as the filler will be naturally absorbed by your body.
