Hand Rejuvenation San Francisco Bay Area
Don’t let your hands give away your age! So many of us are focused on our face and our chest that we forget about our hands. The skin on our hands is not only delicate, but it’s often exposed to the elements. Sun, wind and cold can really wreak havoc on the look and appearance of your hands.
Furthermore, just like on the face, we lose volume in our hands over time. This results is prominent, ropey looking veins and tendons that can make you look and feel years older than you are. Thankfully, there are a number of cosmetic procedures on the market today that can help address the early signs of aging and rejuvenate hands.*

What is Hand Rejuvenation
Hand rejuvenation refers to a combination of procedures that are used to restore a more youthful appearance to the hands. As we age, our hands lose volume, become thinner and develop wrinkles, age spots, and other imperfections.
Hand rejuvenation procedures can include the use of fillers to restore volume, laser treatments to remove age spots, and chemical peels to improve skin texture.
Hand Rejuvenation Technique
Eliminating the excess pigment, sun spots and dullness on the hands may require 3-4 treatments with the laser. The treatment is fast with little to no downtime, but you need to be vigilant afterwards about wearing a UV sunscreen.* During the same appointment, Dr. Sieber can use fillers to plump up the backs of your hands for a fuller look.* Again, treatment with fillers is an in office, simple procedure.
However, fat grafting to your hands is a bit more invasive as it requires liposuction from another area to harvest the fat cells. This body enhancement procedure is typically done in an operating room as a same day surgery.
Commonly, hand rejuvenation using fat grafting is performed in conjunction with facial rejuvenation surgery such as a facelift.
Preparing for Hand Rejuvenation Treatment
As with any major surgery at Sieber Plastic Surgery in San Francisco, all medications and supplements which cause an increased risk of bleeding should be stopped 2 weeks prior to surgery. Please see our list of medications and supplements to avoid. As always, make sure to check with your doctor before stopping any medications.
Hand Rejuvenation Surgery Recovery
Recovery time for hand rejuvenation can vary depending on the specific procedure performed. Non-invasive procedures such as injectable fillers or laser treatments generally have little to no downtime, with patients able to resume normal activities immediately following treatment.
More invasive procedures such as fat transfer or surgical hand rejuvenation may require more downtime. Patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the days following the procedure, and should avoid strenuous activities for several weeks.
