If you are unsatisfied with the appearance of imperfections on your face or hands, we at Chase Lay, MD have treatment options available to you for instant rejuvenation through the use of dermal fillers, or a fat transfer procedure.
When we think about areas of our skin that are affected by naturally aging, or environmental factors, such as the sun, the condition of our hands are often overlooked. However, the hands are one of the most often exposed areas on our body that can experience the negative effects of weather change, sun exposure, and the development of wrinkles. If you are someone who has noticed the appearance of your hands beginning to decline, there are effective treatment options available to you with a fat transfer, or dermal fillers.
It’s no surprise that the signs of aging and skin damage are most commonly visible on the face. Fine lines can develop in between the brows, around the mouth and eyes, and skin can lose hydration and appear sunken in. Luckily, there are treatments available designed to smooth away the appearance of wrinkles and leave skin looking hydrated and more youthful. These treatments can include a fat transfer, or dermal fillers, in order to plump up your skin and reverse the signs of aging. Dermal fillers can also treat areas of the face such as the lips and nose without needing to undergo a surgical procedure.
What Is a Fat Transfer
Fat grafting is a minimally invasive procedure that includes using your own fat tissue from another area, and relocating it to the new desired area. It not only enables the augmentation and repair of soft tissue in the new area, however it has become increasingly popular for cosmetic purposes. Utilizing your own body’s tissue in order to restore the appearance of your hands, or facial tissue such as cheeks, can produce smooth, radiant skin with more natural looking results.
How Can Dermal Fillers Help?
It is common to hear about individuals using dermal fillers such as BOTOX in order to provide patients with plump and soft-looking skin. However, it is less common to hear about using these treatments in order to restore the appearance of the hands. Dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid, a natural occurring substance in the body, successfully work to increase collagen and elasticity in the skin. This can be beneficial for increasing the youthful glow of both the hands and face while also gently plumping the skin, smoothing away the appearance of fine lines.

Restylane® Lyft is an FDA-approved dermal filler made of a synthetic form of Hyaluronic Acid, or HA. HA naturally occurs in your body and provides it with moisture and structure. This HA filler is an effective choice to reduce volume loss and create a smoother appearance in the cheeks and hands.
