“My Hands Look Old!”
Hands can be a dead giveaway of age, no matter how well you take care of them. And sometimes they make you look older than you actually are!
The Problem with Aging Hands
The biggest problem with hands is the loss of volume. Once the fat cushion is gone, you see tendons, bones and what seem to be huge veins. The only way to mask that skeletal appearance is with filler or fat injections.
The Filler Fix
Radiesse was the first to get the FDA nod as a filler for the backs of your hands, followed by Restylane Lyft. We’ve been using both for years and patients love that it’s easy, pretty much painless and lasts a long time.
You don’t have to be “old” to have hands that look older. We get plenty of exposure to the elements here and that makes every exposed body part look a little older a little quicker.
Radiesse and Restylane Injections: Simple & Fast
The injection procedure is easy. We inject the filler under the skin and then massage it into the areas that need cushion. You’ll have a little bit of swelling for a day or two and then you’ll have hands that definitely look younger. Expect results to last a year – in some cases longer.

Lost Volume & Sun Damage, Too?
Often hands take a double hit with the loss of volume and spots from sun exposure. In addition to using dermal fillers to restore your hands to a younger place in time, IPL is used to get rid of age and sun spots, along with laser such as Enlighten for defined dark spots. Or Fraxel is a good option if your skin is crepey or lined.
With the right choices and the right skin care products, you can easily enjoy youthful hands that are supple, smooth and firm … no matter what your age. Visit Dr. Fitzgerald in Los Angeles or call 323-464-8046 today for more information.
