HAND REJUVENATION TREATMENT BY DR. ZUCKERMAN IN NEW YORK CITY


With this treatment, Dr. Zuckerman addresses aging in the hand characterized by loss of subcutaneous fat and by atrophy of the intrinsic muscles of the hand, which puts the metacarpal bones, tendons and veins into sharp relief. To restore some of the subcutaneous volume, Dr. Zuckerman injects Radiesse®, an injectable filler. I inject just beneath the skin between where the tendons and bones sit and then massage the area to diffuse the filler over the whole back of the hand. This treatment lasts up to a year, and it makes a dramatic difference in the aesthetic appearance of the hand.

Hand Rejuvenation In Detail

Below Dr. Zuckerman outlines several key aspects of Hand Rejuvenation including procedure time, preparation, cost, and more.

Recommended Treatment Regimen

Most patients require one treatment per year to maintain a continual effect.

Longevity

Treatment is visible immediately and lasts up to one year. With Radiesse®, the injectable acts as a filler for the first three months. Afterward the body slowly metabolizes the injectable, and it stimulates the body’s own collagen production.

Treatment Time

20 – 30 minutes per treatment

Pretreatment Guidelines

Dr. Zuckerman recommends patients take the following precautions before undergoing hand rejuvenation to minimize bruising: no NSAIDs such aspirin or ibuprofen within a couple days before a day after, don’t drink alcohol to excess a day before and a day before, refraining from lying flat or working out within 2 hours after injection.

Hand Rejuvenation Recovery, Difficulty, & Risks

See below for an estimate of how long your treatment result may last, recovery time if any, cost range, and more.

Downtime / Recovery

There is little to no downtime after this treatment. Patients’ hands may appear a bit red or irritated, especially near the injection sites, but such issues should resolve within a matter of hours.

Required Level of Skill

Medium: there are many structures in the hand, so it is important to inject in the correct locations. Visit an experienced injector like Dr. Zuckerman, a board-certified plastic surgeon.

Level of Discomfort

None to low: Dr. Zuckerman applies numbing cream 45 minutes before treatment, so the patient should have little to no discomfort.

Associated Risks

Hand rejuvenation is overwhelmingly safe when performed by an expert who is aware of the anatomy of the hand. In this case, there are very few risks as a result. However as noted above, there are muscles, tendons, arteries/veins, are in close proximity in the hand, and the hand is one of the most important organs in the body. As a result, please visit a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Zuckerman for this treatment.
