What is hand rejuvenation?

Hand rejuvenation aesthetics involves a series of procedures aimed at reducing the signs of aging on the hand skin. These procedures aim to treat thinning skin, loss of elasticity, spots and wrinkles caused by the harmful effects of the sun. In this way, the hands have a more youthful, smooth, and vibrant appearance.

Why is hand rejuvenation aesthetics needed?

The main reasons for the need for hand rejuvenation aesthetics are the aging process and the negative effects of various environmental factors on the skin.

Loss of Collagen and Elastin: Collagen and elastin production in the skin decreases with aging. This leads to a decrease in the elasticity and fullness of the skin and the formation of wrinkles.

Sagging and Loosening of the Skin: As collagen and elastin in the skin decrease, the skin may sag and loosen. Especially hands are exposed to more stress due to daily activities and may show more obvious signs of aging over time.

Sun Damage: The Harmful UV rays of the sun can cause spots and wrinkles on the skin. Especially hands are more prone to sun damage due to direct exposure to sunlight.

Age Spots: With the aging process, pigmentation changes and age spots may occur in the hands. Many people desire to achieve a younger and more dynamic appearance by reducing the signs of aging on their hands.

Who may undergo hand rejuvenation procedures?

Hand rejuvenation procedures are performed for all patients with signs of aging and skin deformities due to external factors, helping to eliminate changes in the hands. The procedure is performed for people who:

  • Experience loss in subcutaneous tissue of the skin,
  • Have thinning and wear on their skin,
  • Experience spotting on the skin.

How is hand rejuvenation performed? What methods are used for hand rejuvenation?

Hand rejuvenation procedures involve various methods to remove the signs of aging and make the hands look fresh and younger. These methods are as follows:

  • Fat Injections: Fat tissue harvested from the body is condensed by processing and injected into the back of the hand. In this way, soft tissue loss is repaired and thanks to the stem cells it contains, self-repair and regeneration of tissues are supported.
  • Filling Applications: As an alternative to fat injections, filling applications using hyaluronic acid can be preferred. This office-based procedure enhances skin quality with its long-lasting results.
  • Skin Moisturizing Procedures: The skin that becomes thinner and drier over time is moisturized and strengthened from the inside with pure hyaluronic acid injections. Regular repetition of these applications helps to preserve the youthful look of the hands.
  • PRP Applications: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a method that uses the patient’s own blood cells to obtain specific growth factors, which are then purified and injected under the skin. This process promotes self-renewal of tissues and helps to reduce spots.
  • Chemical peeling: The back of the hand is peeled with diluted acids to remove spots and fine wrinkles.
  • Dermapen: Dermapen, in the form of a multi-needle pen, creates a controlled destruction of the hand skin by activating the own regeneration mechanism of the skin and making the hand look younger.

How is the recovery process after the procedure?

Those who undergo hand rejuvenation experience a very comfortable recovery process.  If fat injections are used in the procedure, patients are usually discharged on the same day. Mild swelling and bruising may be observed for a few days after the procedure. Patients can take a bath the next day. Following applications such as fillers, PRP, and Dermapen, there may be mild swelling and bruising, but patients’ daily activities are generally not affected.

It is important for patients to use plenty of moisturizing and sunscreen products for their skin after the procedures. In this way, the healing process of the skin is supported and unwanted effects are minimized.
