Hand Rejuvenation with Restylane Lyft

Oct 3, 2018 | Hands, Restylane Lyft

It is a truth universally acknowledged that hands do not age well. Even if you manage to hold on to a youthful face as you age through regular skin care, the backs of your hands will probably not be able to hold on to youth the same way. The good news is, hand treatments may be able to help you reverse this aging process. Here is everything you need to know about Restylane Lyft, a popular option for hand rejuvenation.


What happens to your hands as you age—Hands reveal everything about aging—wrinkled skin, age spots, prominent veins, and other unfortunate side effects of your body growing older. Collagen production slows down significantly as you age, causing your skin to lose elasticity. The fat in your skin also begins to deteriorate which results in sagging skin and a distinct reduction in total volume. The skin may also become thinner, making blood vessels become more visible.

How Restylane Lift works—Restylane Lyft, a FDA approved treatment for use on the hands or the face, is a hand treatment that slows down the effects of aging on your hands. It uses an injectable gel filler known as Perlane to correct age-related volume loss in the back of the hands. The injection eliminates moderate to severe wrinkles and folds.

Treatments and results—Restylane Lift uses hyaluronic acid gel, a safe and dissolvable filler that also includes a little bit of local anesthetic to ensure the injection process is as painless as possible. The treatment may produce mild side effects, but any minor swelling or redness will fade within a week. Studies show improvement in hand volume for anywhere from 9 to 18 months.
