Help is at hand...talk to Dr Kim today!
Hands are often the neglected part of our appearance but can age us.
But ageing hands can be rectified! Hand rejuvenation is available in Beckenham and Bromley.
What can be done?
Can you see tendons and veins in the hands? - this is a volume loss issue and requires volume replacement with fillers.
Is there excess tissue over the hands? - the issue is skin laxity and requires tightening with Profhilo.
The fillers that can be used are plain volumisers or fillers than will increase collagen and volume as the same time. Profhilo is a bioremodeling agent that can tighten aged hand skin and improve laxity.
Who can’t be treated?
People with previous reactions to fillers, those with keloid scarring and certain medical conditions such as auto-immune disease may not be suitable. Those with allergies to peels will also not be able to receive a hand peel. I will assess you fully during the consultation and we will discuss any contraindications and concerns. Treating ageing hands can be easy and comfortable.
What does it cost?
Each individual is different and if you would like an accurate price please consult with Dr Booysen. Fillers in the hands start from £450 and Profhilo to treat aged hands costs £500 for 2 sessions.
What are the risks and side effects?
Side effects including bleeding, bruising, pain, swelling and redness.
Some lumps may be felt in the hand ofter treatment and these usually settle within a few days.
Will I need repeat treatments?
Radiesse lasts for about a year depending on the area injected. Radiesse does stimulate new collagen formation so less treatments will be needed over time. Profhilo last for about 6 months and will require treatments again.
What should I do after treatment?
In the first 24 hours following treatment, extensive sun or heat exposure and alcoholic beverages may cause a temporary increase in redness, bruising or swelling at the injection sites. If there is swelling or redness after the injections, you should limit exposure to sunlight. If sun exposure is unavoidable, use a sun block with an SPF of 25 or greater. You should avoid strenuous exercise for 48 hours, to prevent increasing blood flow to the hands.
Hand rejuvenation for ageing hands is performed by Dr Kim Booysen in the Beckenham, Bromley and Chislehurst clinic.
