It’s a simple procedure designed to restore the youthful appearance of the back of the hands by adding volume which may have been lost due to aging, sun damage, weight loss, etc.
Dr. Avaliani will gladly answer any questions during your consultation. It is important to determine the severity of volume loss, the amount of product needed to correct the volume loss, the duration of the product and whether it is reversible or not.*
The price strictly depends on the type of the product to be used and the amount of syringes needed to correct the volume loss.
It depends on the severity of volume loss. Since the hand area is quite large, therefore more product is needed to fill all the space up. For mild to moderate cases, it takes 1 to 1.5 syringes per hand and in severe cases, it may be as many as 3-4 syringes per hand.
This will be discussed and explained during your consultation.
