How does Restylane Vital work on the back of the hands?
The ageing process produces loss in skin volume and elasticity of the deeper layer of the skin called the dermis. This process makes the veins on the back of the hands appear more prominent. Microfine droplets of dermal filler can be used to correct this volume loss and restore a more youthful appearance. Restylane Vital has been specifically developed for this purpose and contains Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occuring substance. We offer this treatment at the clinic.

What is involved in treatment?
A topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the back of the hands for 45-60 minutes. After this time, micro-injections of Restylane Vital are used to carefully place the dermal filler and this is massaged into the deeper layers of the skin to produce a natural look. We recommend a course of two to three treatments at 6-8 weekly intervals and a top up treatment every 6-months.

What are the side-effects of treatment?
It is normal to experience mild brusing and temporary tenderness at injection sites. The skin will normally fully recover within 5-7 days and improvment in the skin will be observed over the next few weeks.

How much does treatment cost?
Each session of treatment costs £180 and we recommend a minimum of two sessions for a course. We offer a special package price of £350 for two sessions providing this is purchased in advance.
