How long will my hand rejuvenation results last?
How long your hand rejuvenation results last will depend on the treatment or combination of treatments received.
- Temporary fillers usually last three months to one year, and you’ll need to get additional injections when necessary.
- Fat transfer and laser skin resurfacing are usually permanent but will age as you age.
- Surgery yields the longest-lasting results, but you may have a scar.
Patients with a history of impaired healing, such as diabetes, ongoing sun exposure, and smoking (or exposure to secondhand smoke), will see a less dramatic initial result, and the results won’t be as long-lasting. To help prolong your hand rejuvenation results, avoid sun exposure, and take precautions such as wearing gloves and regularly applying moisturizer.
What do I need to consider after my hand rejuvenation?
To achieve the most beautiful and safe outcome, it’s important you return to your aesthetic plastic surgeon's office for follow-up evaluations at prescribed times. If you notice new fine lines, wrinkles or protruding veins over time, you can schedule follow-up treatments to maintain your results. Do not hesitate to contact your surgeon when you have any questions or concerns.
