Hyaluronic acid and other fillers for wrinkle therapy in the hand area
Fillers are substances foreign to the body that can be used to fill volume deficiencies. The main area of application for filler treatment is the deeper skin layers (dermis/cutis and subcutaneous fatty tissue/subcutis).
A distinction is made between permanent and resorbable fillers:
Permanent fillers are rarely used in modern filler therapy. Due to possible allergic reactions to non-degradable substances with the formation of granulomas in the area of the injection, only resorbable fillers are usually used today.
The most commonly used absorbable filler is hyaluronic acid. A different water-binding capacity can be achieved depending on the degree of cross-linking. The advantages of hyaluronic acid are immediate availability without additional donor defects and only a little or no swelling after injection.
Prof Dr Robert Hierner is thoroughly skilled at cosmetic procedures of the hand and is one of the best surgeons for hand rejuvenation in Dubai. With his unique approaches and methodologies, he has lucratively performed many surgical procedures that have rendered a young look to wrinkled and aged hands.
Patients with developing volume loss in the dorsal wrist and hand region:
depressions between the metacarpal bones
depressions in the area of the interfinger folds
In the case of less pronounced signs of aging, wrinkle injections with hyaluronic acid are already sufficient to alleviate the signs of time.
Filler therapy can be performed at any time of the year, it can be easily combined with other aesthetic procedures and it shows both immediate and long-term effects.

In clinical practice, the first step is a detailed examination;
1) What bothers you
2) What are your expectations
3) Previous (aesthetic) operations
4) General state of health
5) Development of body shape and weight
6) Lifestyle (sports)
7) Quality of the skin
10) Handedness and Professional activity
Together with the patient, the hand areas to be corrected are discussed and marked.
A detailed photo documentation is made
Rare risks with proper technique:
Swelling, skin discoloration due to bleeding, feeling of pressure, etc.
Specific preparation for mesotherapy is not necessary. If necessary, an anaesthetic cream (e.g. EMLA ® ointment) can be applied before the injection.
Together with the patient, the hand areas to be corrected are discussed.
Then a specific amount of hyaluronic acid is injected into the respective skin layer with a fine needle. Various hyaluronic acid preparations are available for the different injection depths.
In order to obtain a clearly visible treatment result, the hyaluronic acid injection must be performed about 2 – 3 times at an interval of about 4 – 6 weeks.
Advantages of hyaluronic acid are immediate availability without additional donor defect and only a little or no swelling after injection. The limitation of hyaluronic acid is its limited duration of action of 6 – 12 months. The treatment must be repeated at least every six months.
Specific aftercare is not necessary. Immediately after the hand rejuvenation, the backs of the hands are cooled and treated with special creams. Good sun protection is necessary.
The back of the hand can be plumped up by targeted subcutaneous injection of non-cross-linked, and thus, much more durable hyaluronic acid. The hands have a more youthful appearance as the subcutaneous tissue is replaced or rebuilt. At the same time, the skin’s moisture content improves (immediate effect), as hyaluronic acid has water-retaining properties, and the collagen synthesis of the skin is also stimulated (long-term effect).
