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.
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.
