Frequently Asked Questions
Our hands do just about everything, and since our hands are exposed to these outside factors most of the time, it results in visible signs of ageing more than on other areas of our body. These ageing signs include thinning skin, enlarged veins and a bony appearance. The hands are usually ignored in the average woman's skin care regimen and thus give our age away before our faces do. The 3D Hand Rejuvenation is one of the most effective non surgical hand rejuvenation solutions available and involves combining three clinical applications namely Dermal Fillers, Hydration fillers and Mesotherapy with growth factors and peptides. Separately each clinical application presents a powerful solution for the most in demand, fastest growing procedure with no downtime for ageing hands. At Skin Renewal we combine these 3 procedures in a single treatment session at an affordable price for our patients. The total cost of R12 000 for bilateral hand rejuvenation includes 4 fillers (2 per hand) and 3 mls of mesotherapy with growth factors, HA and peptides.

Mild redness, bruising and swelling of the skin occurs following the procedure which resolves after 1 to 2 days. This is truly a lunch time procedure and one can comfortably go back to work after the procedure. You may put makeup on the treated area immediately and resume whatever activities you have planned, as long as you recognize that you may be a slightly red and swollen for up to 2days. This differs for each individual - the older you are the easier you might bruise in the treated area. Normal daily activities can be resumed immediately after the treatment. At Skin Renewal the option of a complimentary PDT/LED after the procedure is available. This is a healing, anti-ageing light which further reduces bruising and swelling and prolongs the effect of the filler. You will also be provided with an ice pack to take home which lessens the redness and swelling, if this is required.
At Skin Renewal you are asked to have a follow up consult at two weeks when everything is settled to evaluate your results and ensure that you are satisfied with the outcome and have had no problems. Try to avoid aspirin, myprodol, omega 3 or products containing a high-dosage vitamin E supplements for 10 days before the filler procedure (unless medically necessary) to avoid bruising. After the filler procedure, it's recommended to avoid saunas and steam baths for 2 weeks.
3D Hand Rejuvenation can be used on all skin types with minimal pain and no downtime unlike other skin rejuvenating devices and fractionated treatments.
