Hand Filler Treatment Tustin
As we age, skin on the hands can lose fat, becoming thin and bony, with prominent veins. Age spots, fine lines and wrinkles change the look and feel of the hands. Overall, hand rejuvenation needs to address two key aspects: Volume rejuvenation and Skin rejuvenation. Hand filler treatment in Tustin is a variety of technique that exist for bringing volume and freshness to the hands, erasing the tell tale signs of aging.
Hand Rejuvenation with dermal fillers is growing in popularity because it can give the hands a fresher and more youthful appearance by volumizing the skin, minimizing wrinkles, and hiding prominent veins and tendons. Fillers containing dermal stimulants go a step further encouraging the production of collagen in the skin, leading to increased volume and prolonged treatment effectiveness.

Dermal filler for the hands is a minimally invasive procedure which takes only 30 minutes to complete, and provides plumping effects almost instantly with results lasting up to one to five years depending on which product is used. An added benefit is that it can generate collagen production, which can subsequently reduce the amount of filler you need for future treatments.
