As you age, you gradually begin to lose subcutaneous fat in your body and hands. Losing subcutaneous fat from the hands allows bones tendons, joints, and veins to stand out. You may also notice wrinkles and fine lines that have developed, causing you to appear older and frailer. Wrinkles and lines develop because your hand muscles are closer to the skin’s surface and your skin produces less collagen and elastin to stay supple and firm.

What is Hand Rejuvenation?

Hand rejuvenation treatment entails using Radiesse, hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, fat-stimulating injections, or fat transfer to plump the hands to your desired appearance.


Radiesse is a dermal filler that effectively rejuvenates aging hands. Radiesse has a thick gel like structure that is ideal for injection into the hands. This dermal filler immediately plumps the hands and stimulates the production of elastin and collagen. Elastin and collagen help to firm the skin and reinforce the weakened tissues. Radiesse leaves you with long lasting results lasting one to two years depending on your body’s natural response to the filler.

Dermal Filler

Other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can also be used to re-volumize the hands. It is best to consult with a professional at 5th Avenue Plastic Surgery to determine which formulation is best for your hand rejuvenation needs.


Renuva is a fat-stimulating injectable that over time builds up the production of your own body’s fat to restore age-related fat loss. Gradually, Renuva is replaced with your body’s own fat to reduce the appearance of veins, bones and loose skin with long lasting results.

Fat Transfer

Hand rejuvenation using fat grafting is another option to rejuvenate the hands. Using your own fat to rejuvenate the hands is a viable option for individuals wanting to diminish fat from one area of their body and add it to an area lacking volume.


Recovery Time

Recovery times will vary depending on your treatment

Type of Anesthesia

General, local, or topical anesthesia

Hand Rejuvenation Candidates

Candidates for hand rejuvenation should be in generally good health, should not smoke, and must have realistic expectations for their hand rejuvenation treatment. Ideal candidates include but are not limited to individuals wanting to target the following issues:

  • Prominent veins
  • Protruding tendons and bones
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Loss of volume
  • Thinning skin

The best way to determine if you are an ideal candidate for hand rejuvenation is through a consultation with one of our specialists at 5th Avenue Plastic Surgery.

The Hand Rejuvenation Treatment

Dermal Filler/Radiesse/Renuva

Your dermal filler treatment will begin with a local anesthetic being injected to make the procedure as painless as possible. Your injector will mark the targeted areas and will inject small amounts into several sites on the hands until you achieve your desired look. 

Fat Transfer

IV sedation, and sometimes general anesthesia, will be given to you to help with your comfort during treatment. Your doctor will mark the treatment areas and will manually harvest fat from your decided areas before refining the fat for injection into your hands. Your doctor will transfer the fat into several entrance sites on your hands to boost your hand volume in an even fashion.

Hand Rejuvenation Recovery

Dermal Filler/Radiesse

Your results after dermal filler treatment will be visible immediately. This injectable treatment offers a mild recovery with zero down time required. You may experience mild swelling, bruising, and redness. This will subside within a few days.

Fat Transfer

Recovery from fat transfer will vary depending on the amount of fat that your doctor has removed from your body and the amount injected into your hands. Since this is such a small area, recovery is typically milder and will take up to two weeks. Bruising, swelling, and soreness can persist for several days to weeks. After your procedure, you can enjoy your volumized and more youthful-looking hands.

I had Such an Incredible Experience with Iliana!

I had such an incredible experience with Iliana! I was so nervous to get Botox because I was afraid it was going to be a painful experience but I was pleasantly surprised. She is truly an artist! Not only was it absolutely painless but I am the type of person that bruises like a banana so I was expecting a face full of tiny bruises as this was my first time. I woke up the next morning with no bruising at all! She is so incredibly talented and makes the process quick, painless and educational. I am so happy with my results!
