Hand rejuvenation by an international expert

As we age, skin on the hands can lose fat, becoming thin and bony, causing veins to become more prominent. Age spots, fine lines and wrinkles change the look and feel of the hands. While make-up can disguise tell-tale signs of ageing on the face, it's more difficult with hands - which is why it's often said that hands are the best indicator of age.

Overall, hand rejuvenation needs to address two key aspects: volume rejuvenation and skin rejuvenation. A variety of techniques exist but they tend to only address the issue of volume loss, whilst neglecting the thin and crepey skin or vice versa. Historically, addressing both issues require multiple treatments with different procedures. This can be both very costly and time consuming.

Dr Bong's R+R technique is unique

Dr Bong’s R+R technique is unique - it can give the hands a fresher and more youthful appearance by volumising and smoothing the skin, minimising wrinkles, and hiding prominent veins – all in one treatment.

Overall, hand rejuvenation needs to address two key aspects: volume rejuvenation and skin rejuvenation. A variety of techniques exist but they tend to only address the issue of volume loss, whilst neglecting the thin and crepey skin or vice versa. Historically, addressing both issues require multiple treatments with different procedures. This can be both very costly and time consuming.

Dr Bong’s unique R+R technique and formulation can help address the following in just one treatment.

1. Wrinkles in the hands

2. Skin texture of the hands

3. The lack of volume in the hands and

4. Prominence of veins in the hands

Choosing the type of dermal filler for the hands

The R+R technique is unique. Dr Bong invented this technique some years ago. The formulation of this technique combines an exclusive soft tissue filler and a skin booster/stimulator to improve the appearance of prominence veins and crepey skin texture in the hands. This formulation and technique is exclusive to Dr Bong and as such we can’t reveal the specific brands and grades of the products. Both products consist of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a substance which exists naturally in our tissue. They are compatible with our bodies—hypoallergenic, non-irritating and nontoxic – and have European CE Mark certification.

Who is a good candidate for the R+R hand rejuvenation treatment?

The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider hand rejuvenation treatment:

• Your hands have prominent veins and tendons because of volume loss

• Your hands are wrinkled and thin

• Your hands would benefit from improved skin tone and colour

However, the prospective patient must also be aware that this treatment is designed for improvement, not perfection. Patients should have realistic goals and expectations for their hand rejuvenation treatment. Be sure to discuss your reasons for wanting to undergo this treatment with Dr Bong.

What to expect during the treatment?

• The hands will be cleaned with antiseptic.

• A small injection of local anaesthetic is carried out at the entry point. Most patients report that this procedure is virtually pain-free.

• The R+R products are injected with a micro-cannula (blunt-tipped needle) under the skin surface. The revolutionary R+R technique - invented and perfected by Dr Bong - means the procedure is very safe with no down time at all.

• To ensure an even correction, Dr Bong will massage the area treated

What to expect after the treatment?

• Keep the treated area clean and avoid touching or put any product on for 6 hours after the treatment.

• You may return to their normal routine/activities immediately after treatment.

• The injection area may be gently washed after 6 hours. Please avoid aggressive scrubbing or rubbing.

Specific after care instructions will be provided and discussed with you during your visit.

How long do the results last?

The result generally last 6-12 months or even longer. The longevity of this treatment is variable and each individual may obtain a different result because it depends on your anatomy, metabolism, the amount of products used and its placement, your lifestyle and etc.

Typically, if the patient is happy with the results at 4 weeks (i.e. there has been adequate improvement in volume replacement and skin texture), they should repeat the procedure at 6 months, then once yearly. If the patient is not fully satisfied with the results at 4 weeks (i.e. more products are required to achieve the results that they desire), then further treatment should be repeated between 1-3 months. This is then followed by a repeat treatment at 6 months, then once yearly.

How long will the effect last?

One of the great advantages of the products we use at Essence Medical is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent – therefore you are always in control of your looks and can change you treatment depending on how you are ageing. The results with Redensity II [eyes] typically last 9-12 months although the exact length of time will depend on the structure of your skin and other factors such as lifestyle, age and the degree of perfection demanded by you. Additional touch up treatments can be performed at any time after the initial treatment.

Will I see the results immediately?

Yes. The treatment provides an immediate result. The result directly after the treatment may not be the final result because it will continue to improve in the following two weeks.

Will I experience any discomfort during the treatment?

No. Dr Bong’s extensive experience and skills mean that this procedure is virtually pain-free.

Will I experience any side effects?

• Bruising – very rare

• Swelling – very rare

• Infection – very rare

• Asymmetry - sometimes one side is better treated than the other, this is usually because the patient is not symmetrical to start with. Also, we use one hand more than the other. As such, the hand which we use more might have aged more and require additional treatment

How much time is needed for this treatment and can I go on with my day following treatment?

Typically, this treatment is complete in 20-30 minutes. Most people feel comfortable going back to their normal activities immediately following their appointment.

What other treatments are usually done in conjunction with the R+R hand rejuvenation?

Dr Bong’s R+R hand rejuvenation treatment can help improve the following:

• Prominent veins and tendons because of volume loss

• Wrinkled and thin skin in the hands

However, if you wish to soften the appearance of age spots, red spots, black spots, dry skin and other unwanted pigment changes of the skin, you can combine the R+R hand rejuvenation treatment with our medium-grade chemical skin peel.

How much does R+R hand rejuvenation with dermal fillers and skin booster cost?

Cost of Dr Bong’s unique R+R hand rejuvenation treatment depends on the amount of product used and the condition of your hand. Dr Bong will advise you accordingly. Most people require only one session (see above ‘how long does the result last’) to achieve significant improvement and the cost starts from £500 per session.

We offer expert treatments at competitive prices and a free, no-obligation consultation appointment to discuss your suitability.

* Note: the above is a standard price and is subject to individual requirement. You will be made fully aware of the exact cost following a face-to-face consultation.

Saying “Thank You” seems so insufficient but I can find no words that truly express my feelings appropriately, so I will stick with those two simple words with the hope that you know the depth of emotion and gratitude they contain
