Apart from the face and neck, the hand is the most visible unclothed area of the body. The popular and established use of dermal fillers in facial treatments for a fuller, more youthful appearance is well known. But you can also have filler injected into the backs of your hands.
Filler in the hands is used like filler in other places, to cause a rejuvenating effect by giving more volume and plumpness to an area which has lost some of that over time. With aging, there’s a loss of collagen and elastin, and the skin gets thinner, and in the hand, when that happens, you can see the tendons and the veins in the hands more prominently.
Filler can be used to plump the back of the hand to make the tendons and veins less visible. People tend to get fillers when they think the appearance of their hands doesn’t match their face, “giving their age away,”
How is it done?
After some topical anaesthetic cream is applied, a thinner density filler can be
injected superficially into the dermal layer of the skin at multiple points. The
thinner filler allows it to spread over larger areas before drawing fluid
naturally. Fillers here can add a youthfulness to the hands - one of the major
give-aways to one’s true age, and can last as long as 18 months.
