Our bodies are just as susceptible to the signs of ageing as our faces, yet the vast majority of time and money is spent on tackling facial issues such as wrinkles, lines, sagging skin and pigmentation – this can lead to a slightly ‘odd’ appearance of a youthful face but aged hands.
Our hands are always on show. So, not only do they get lots of exposure to the sun and environmental irritants that make them age more quickly, but they’re constantly on display every time we shake someone’s hand or touch our face. Our hands might give our age away even if our face doesn’t.
The appearance of ageing on our hands is accelerated by prominent veins and tendons.
Most people assume there’s nothing that can be done for ageing hands, but the opposite is the case – it’s just not widely known about.
What is dermal filler and how does it work?
Dermal filler is a gel made from hyaluronic acid – a substance that occurs naturally in the skin. To resolve nuisance wrinkles, it’s injected beneath the surface to plump up surrounding tissue. Most patients find the procedure on their hands comfortable with very little pain. In addition to the use of ultra-fine needles, we apply a numbing cream to the hands.
How much do dermal fillers cost?
During your consultation Dr Catharine will work with you to prepare a treatment plan. As each person and their requirements are unique, we price all of our dermal filler treatments on the amount of filler used; our pricing starts from £250.
