Our hands do just about everything, and since our hands are exposed to these outside factors most of the time, it results in visible signs of ageing more than on other areas of our body. These ageing signs include thinning skin, enlarged veins and a bony appearance. The hands are usually ignored in the average woman's skin care regimen and thus give our age awa y before our faces do. The 3D Hand Rejuvenation is one of the most effective non surgical hand rejuvenation solutions available and involves combining three clinical applications namely Dermal Fillers, Hydration fillers and Mesotherapy with growth factors and peptides. Separately each clinical application presents a powerful solution for the most in demand, fastest growing procedure with no downtime for ageing hands. At Skin Renewal we combine these 3 procedures in a single treatment session at an affordable price for our patients.

The 3D Hand Rejuvenation is one of the most effective non surgical hand rejuvenation solutions available and involves combining three clinical applications namely Dermal Fillers, Hydration fillers and Mesotherapy with growth factors, peptides, vitamins, anti-oxidants and nucleic acids. Separately each clinical application presents a powerful all in one combined treatment to give superior results for hand rejuvenation.
1) The first step of 3D Hand Rejuvenation is Mesotherapy:
Mesotherapy introduces award winning growth factors, hyaluronic acid, peptides and essential building components of collagen into the deep dermis to stimulate collagen. Pioneered by the French physician Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952, Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is widely used in Europe and elsewhere to treat various aesthetic concerns, skin and body concerns and medical conditions. Tiny "medicinal bullets" are delivered directly into the mesoderm (middle layer of skin) by micro injections that are highly specific to the condition being treated. Using this technique, active ingredients that are highly beneficial to the skin can be directly injected into the areas they are most needed such as the thinning skin on the back of the hands. There is instant hydration but best results come 3 months down the line when collagen has been stimulated and the skin on the back of the hand improves.
2) The second step of 3D Hand Rejuvenation is intra dermal injections of a hydrating dermal filler called Juvederm Hydrate.
Small painless intradermal injections of Hydrate instantly moisturize the thinning skin and stimulate the production of collagen. Juvéderm®Hydrate™ is a type of Hyaluronic acid filler with the specific goal of making your skin appear smooth, soft and toned. Juvéderm® Hydrate™ helps attract and hold moisture within the skin to restore a healthy natural glow. This product also features an anti-oxidising agent, helping to prevent the build-up of free radicals in the skin, so the effects of your treatment can be prolonged.
3) The third step of the procedure is plumping up the skeletal bony areas of the hands and improving the appearance of dilated veins and tendons.
Volumizing Dermal Fillers are used are to enhance volume and give an overall youthful 3-dimensional volume effect to ageing hands that have a bony, skeletal appearance. These volumizing fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring human protein responsible for cushioning the skin. At Skin Renewal we only use tried and tested and CE medically approved and FDA approved dermal fillers such as Juvederm™, Surgiderm, Restylane™, and Perlane.
Mild redness, bruising and swelling of the skin occurs following the procedure which resolves after 1 to 2 days. This is truly a lunch time procedure and one can comfortably go back to work after the procedure. You may put makeup on the treated area immediately and resume whatever activities you have planned, as long as you recognize that you may be a slightly red and swollen for up to 2days. This differs for each individual - the older you are the easier you might bruise in the treated area. Normal daily activities can be resumed immediately after the treatment. At Skin Renewal the option of a complimentary PDT/LED after the procedure is available. This is a healing, anti-ageing light which further reduces bruising and swelling and prolongs the effect of the filler. You will also be provided with an ice pack to take home which lessens the redness and swelling, if this is required.
At Skin Renewal you are asked to have a follow up consult at two weeks when everything is settled to evaluate your results and ensure that you are satisfied with the outcome and have had no problems. Try to avoid aspirin, myprodol, omega 3 or products containing a high-dosage vitamin E supplements for 10 days before the filler procedure (unless medically necessary) to avoid bruising. After the filler procedure, it's recommended to avoid saunas and steam baths for 2 weeks.
3D Hand Rejuvenation can be used on all skin types with minimal pain and no downtime unlike other skin rejuvenating devices and fractionated treatments.
