Our hands are perhaps one of the most important features in our body and we use our hands for everything. You can dress well and looking great with your chic outfit but once those hands are out, the giveaway of your age hides no more. It’s the same for both ladies and men.
What are the common complaints?
The common complaints are the loss of fullness of the dorsum which shows the veins and the tendons and makes it bony looking and the surface of the skin with ageing spots
What are the possible treatments?
There is an option of using fillers but Dr Marco do not recommend this option. Dr Marco prefers using fat from your own body. Fat is non-allergenic and is an autologous material (from the patient’s own body) and there is no chance of an adverse allergic reaction. The result of using fat is long lasting, natural and safe and gives the soft touch feeling.
How is the procedure done?
Around 20 cc of fat is grafted into the subcutaneous layer of each dorsum with a small incision and using a very small tiny 2 mm cannula. Fat can be grafted from areas like inner thighs, inner knees or arms. This can be done in the clinic under local anesthesia.
The bony area instantly becomes fuller and regains the youthful appearance.
How long will the results last?
Usually up to 50 % of the injected fat graft will remain and the body will absorb the rest. The grafted fat will cover the bony area where it shows the tendons and veins. All the patients will love the immediate results as its full looking. The fullness will last around 3 to 6 months depending on individual. A repeat session is advisable.
How do we treat the age spots?
Chemical peels, laser and IPL can be used for darker spots while the lighter spots can be treated with lightening creams. A good scrub or microdermabrasion and mask as well as investing in a good hand cream will help to improve the skin texture.
