Hands are one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Veins, bones, and wrinkles become more pronounced due to volume loss beneath the skin. As a result, your hands may look older than you desire.
At Miami Skin and Vein, we are proud to offer Restylane Lyft to our patients who want smoother, more youthful looking hands. Restylane Lyft is the first and only hyaluronic acid dermal filler to be approved by the FDA for treating the back of the hands.
Dr. Shaun Patel specializes in providing effective results through the use of cosmetic injectables. Schedule your consultation today at 786-618-5039 to learn how Restylane Lyft can rejuvenate the appearance of your hands. We proudly serve Miami, Coral Gables, Miami Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, and nearby areas of Florida.
What Causes Hands to Age?
One of the biggest reasons that hands show aging is a loss of fullness beneath the skin. This decrease in volume causes skin laxity and can make veins more noticeable.
Hands also lose their youthful appearance due to:
- Decreased collagen and elastin production
- Thinning skin
- Sun exposure
Unfortunately, skin aging is unavoidable. However, you can restore a more youthful and supple appearance to your hands with Restylane Lyft injections.
What is Restylane Lyft?
Restylane Lyft is a safe and natural dermal filler made with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers are an increasingly popular choice for skin rejuvenation. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 2 million people received hyaluronic acid injections in 2017.
Restylane Lyft is used to treat wrinkles and other signs of aging by restoring volume beneath the surface of the skin. FDA approved treatment areas include the cheeks, smile lines, and the back of the hands.
How Does Restylane Lyft Work?
Restylane Lyft rejuvenates the appearance of your skin using hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in skin, though our bodies produce less of it as we age. This substance can hold 1,000 times its weight in water, increasing elasticity and providing volume beneath the surface of the skin. The hyaluronic acid used in Restylane Lyft is a clear gel that is formulated to behave like your body’s own hyaluronic acid.
When injected, Restylane Lyft reverses signs of volume loss in the backs of the hands. This improves the appearance of sagging skin, wrinkles, and vein prominence.
Am I a Candidate for Hand Rejuvenation with Restylane Lyft?
A personalized consultation with our experienced physician Dr. Patel is the best way to determine your candidacy. Dr. Patel will discuss your goals for treatment as well as your relevant medical history. Generally speaking, ideal candidates for Restylane Lyft hand rejuvenation:
- Are 21 years of age or older
- Want to treat signs of aging on the hands
- Are not allergic to lidocaine
- Do not have bleeding disorders
Hand Rejuvenation Treatment and Results
Like most injectable fillers, Restylane Lyft can be administered quickly from the comfort of our facility. The average treatment time is 15-30 minutes, though it may vary depending on your goals and number of injections needed. Any potential discomfort is minimized because Restylane Lyft contains a numbing agent called lidocaine. There is no downtime after receiving the injections, although you may experience minor bruising or swelling.
Restylane Lyft is thicker than some other fillers, which helps improve the longevity of your results. The exact duration of results varies from person to person because of individual body chemistry. On average, results last for 9-12 months. Dr. Patel will work with you to schedule follow up injections to maintain the youthful appearance of your hands.
