Restylane Lyft® is the first and only hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler FDA approved to correct volume loss in the hands. As we age, our hands lose firmness and plumpness and can leave skin looking thin and wrinkled, often revealing unsightly tendons and veins. Since the hands are one of the most visible parts of the body, their appearance can be a significant indicator of age!
Restylane Lyft is a dermal injectable filler made out of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the body’s connective tissues and skin. When injected into the hands, the filler adds volume and gives the areas a plump, refreshed look. Now, with just one quick treatment, Restylane Lyft provides immediate volume for a smooth, natural-looking result that can last up to 1 year.
If sun damage and age spots are a concern, our excelV laser or Cryo Correct Pen will improve the appearance giving your hands an overall youthful appearance!

Am I a candidate for Restylane Lyft hand rejuvenation treatments?
The face is not the only area that is subjected to an immense amount of exposure in a lifetime. The skin on the hands is affected by numerous factors, including the way the hands are used (typing, manual labor), dirt and bacteria, sun exposure, and natural aging, and the loss of collagen. The effects of these various factors can result in a frail and bony appearance. Restylane Lyft is a wonderful solution for those who want to restore softness and plumpness to the backs of their hands. This dermal filler is appropriate for most healthy adults.
Benefits of Hand Rejuvenation Treatments
Dermal filler hand rejuvenation is a convenient and safe treatment that offers several benefits. These include:
- Smoother skin with fewer fine lines and creases
- Plumper, less bony appearance
- A decrease in the appearance of prominent veins
- Results are immediate
- Treatment is virtually painless
- No downtime is needed for recovery
In addition to injectable fillers, laser treatment can also be performed to address issues such as sun damage, further enhancing the youthful appearance of the hands.
How Long is the Recovery from Hand Rejuvenation treatments?
Dermal filler injections into the backs of the hands may cause minor swelling and bruising. The swelling that occurs may make the hands feel slightly tight and may affect mobility for a short time. This typically does not require downtime. However, patients may be advised to limit strenuous activities that involve a lot of hand movements, such as gardening or typing.
How often will I need Restylane Lyft hand rejuvenation treatments?
The results of hand rejuvenation using Restylane dermal filler can last 12 to 18 months. Each person metabolizes hyaluronic acid differently, so touch-ups may be needed more or less frequently.
What is the difference between laser hand rejuvenation and Restylane Lyft hand rejuvenation?
Restylane Lyft rejuvenates the hands by enhancing volume, thus reducing the prominence of veins, bones, and tendons. Laser hand rejuvenation does not add volume. Instead, what treatment like Cutera Excel V does is gently ablate the outermost layer of the skin. This reduces discoloration such as sunspots and also stimulates collagen production to support the youthful appearance of the skin for a few months. Because lasers and dermal fillers address completely different cosmetic concerns, they are often performed as individual aspects of customized treatment plans.
Risks Associated with Restylane Lyft Hand Rejuvenation
Swelling and bruising are common side effects of hand rejuvenation using Restylane Lyft. It is impossible to predict exactly how severe this may be. Patients seeking hand rejuvenation are encouraged to avoid taking aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications in the week prior to their treatment. Patients should also alert their provider if they take a prescription blood thinner.
Can I drive after hand rejuvenation treatments?
Yes. Because the hands may feel slightly swollen and stiff for a few hours after treatment, driving may need to be done without gripping the steering wheel and shifter.
How do Restylane Lyft hand rejuvenation treatments work?
The hands change shape with age not because they lose volume in the skin but because they lose some of the fat from beneath the skin. This fat loss occurs alongside muscle atrophy that can make the veins, tendons, and bones look more prominent. Restylane Lyft works by injecting hyaluronic acid beneath the skin’s surface. This acid binds to water molecules, trapping them in place for several months. This happens immediately, so patients enjoy the improvement to their hands as soon as treatment is done.
“It’s been about a year since I started visiting Liz at the Bougainvillea Clinique, and I have nothing but amazing things to say about her and the Clinique. I was a bit unsure at first about wading into injections, as I wanted to continue to look like myself, but start to combat the signs of aging. Liz was incredible with her recommendations. We’ve always aired on the side of too little, rather than too much, which makes me trust her even more that she doesn’t try to push me further than I’m comfortable. And, the results are always so natural, I never look fake and I am always left with the ability to show expression, but without the wrinkles that were starting to creep in!”– Christy
