The two parts of the body that are seen most often – both by other people and the sun – are your face and your hands. Sun damage to the hands results in dyschromia, or dark spots, as well as thinning and wrinkling of the skin. Age can also cause loss of volume in the top of the hand making the veins and tendons much more visible. Hand rejuvenation uses JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC to return volume to the dorsum (top) of the hand to obscure the visible structures beneath the skin and Intense pulse light (IPL) to treat and remove the dark spots that are present.
Dr. Poulter injects the filler through a tiny needle and eases it under the skin to instantly restore volume and smooth wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM products come pre-mixed with lidocaine, a fast-acting anesthetic, for a more comfortable procedure. The injection process takes only a few minutes, and patients can return immediately to normal activities, experiencing only slight redness and swelling at the injection sites. Results from JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC can last for up to 2 years. Most patients report best results with regular touch-ups.
