          Volume Restoration 

Hand aging is primarily a factor of fat loss in the skin structure according to  If you compare a young person's hands with an older person's both in touch and appearance, it is apparent that this natural fat layer makes a very obvious difference. A simple and immediate nonsurgical method of restoring the lost volume in hands is by the use of the filler Radiesse or Juvederm or Sculptra. 

The first thing I always suggest to patients about their hands is to use a titaniun/zinc sunblocker every day in the morning and afternoon indoors and outdoors because the sun penetrates through your windows in your office or home. Patients concentrate too much on their face and have nice facial skin but old looking hands.

In my opinion, choosing the right filler is based on each individual situation between dermatologist and patient.  Radiesse and Juvederm work well, but if you want longevity, sculptra would be the best.  

Radiesse and Juvederm Injections to Back of Hands Patient results may vary Fat loss in the hands is a natural occurrence with aging. Radiesse is a highly malleable product and when injected into the dorsum of the hand, is easily massaged into the entire area to feel and look completely natural.

A large amount of the Radiesse mixture is then injected into the back of the hand. Radiesse has a longevity of up to 2 years and Juvederm has a longevity up to 1 year but both have potentially longer longevity as there is usually less wear and tear to that part of the hand.

For crepey skin Thermage for Hands to tighten collagen is also an option. IPL for Hands Palomar Medical Individual results are not very good.

Chemical Peels is a useful tool in hand rejuvenation as it both removes pigmentation and resurfaces the rough skin texture and your hands take on a firmer and younger appearance.

A significant percentage of my  Dermatology Conditions are diagnosed  on listening to medical history of the patient alone, a further percentage on examination and the remainder on further investigation and my patients teach me the rest. It is clear to me that history and examination skills remain at the very core of my dermatology practice. Older Dermatologists like myself rely on history and physical to a greater degree than the younger dermatologists.  I think that the pendulum has swung too far towards all these cosmetic procedures where the younger dermatologists are just doing cosmetic procedures and not listening to their patients.  This is an important point because if the Dermatologist does not spend enough time with the patient the cosmetic procedures will not work.

It is vital to undergo a full pre assessment to ensure that your skin type is fully assessed and to be  accurate about your medical history. This particular procedure might not be the right treatment for you.  It is crucial that the Doctor does a full History and Physical Examination and listens to your concerns.  It very important to understand the individual needs of each patient because one procedure could work on one patient and then not another.

Each patient’s condition is carefully evaluated and the best treatment(s) are chosen to ensure an optimal outcome.
