About Hand Rejuvenation
The hands can often develop lines and wrinkles faster than the rest of your body, which is why hand rejuvenation has become an extremely popular procedure. There are several reasons why patients might want to address aging in the hands, namely that the appearance of the hands does not match your stated age or appearance.
Introduction to Hand Rejuvenation
The hands are quite prominent; you use them all the time, see them all the time, and they’re incredibly important in terms of communication. So many people want to exert some control over what the hands say about your age.
That’s why Dr. Ogilvie offers hand rejuvenation treatments through his Chicago office. These procedures are intended to diminish lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging in the hands.
Most hand rejuvenation patients begin by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Ogilvie, either of their own initiative of via a referral from another physician.
The First Steps Towards Hand Rejuvenation
During your consultation, you’ll be able to discuss the hand rejuvenation process in detail as well as ask any questions you might have about the process.

Who is a Good Candidate For Hand Rejuvenation?
Hand rejuvenation can be used to address signs of aging in a variety of ways. After all, aging will manifest in unique ways depending on the patient, so hand rejuvenation approaches are tailored to each patient's physiology and desired outcome.
Depending on the nature of the signs of aging on your hands, surgical and nonsurgical hand rejuvenation options may be available for patients. Surgical options will usually involve a fat transfer or fat grafting, meaning good hand rejuvenation candidates would have sufficient body fat to support the use of donor material.
If you think a hand rejuvenation procedure might be a good fit for your desired outcome, contact Dr. Ogilvie to schedule a confidential consultation.
Is Hand Rejuvenation Right For Me?
Most hand rejuvenation patients will:
- Have a significant amount of wrinkles and lines around the hands
- Have excessively thin skin on the back of the hands (this usually tends to show features of the physiology of the hand, such as blood vessels or tendons)
- Notice a significant presence of age spots or other discoloration of the hands
- Be generally healthy enough for surgery
- Have realistic expectations about what hand rejuvenation can accomplish for you
Hand Rejuvenation With Fat Transfer
Hand rejuvenation procedures can be either surgical or nonsurgical. Surgical hand rejuvenation, involving liposuction, is performed on an outpatient basis. Nonsurgical hand rejuvenation may be performed in our Chicago area office, involving dermal fillers or lasers.
Hand Rejuvenation with Fat Transfer: A fat transfer is designed to make the skin of the hands appear thicker, smoother, and more youthful. A fat transfer uses liposuction to collect donor material. Recovery from liposuction can take several weeks, on account of swelling. Once the swelling subsides, patients will notice that they look slimmer in one area and that their hands look more radiant and youthful. Results from a fat transfer hand rejuvenation are effectively permanent.
Hand Rejuvenation With Dermal Fillers
Hand Rejuvenation with Dermal Fillers: Nonsurgical hand rejuvenation relies on the use of dermal filler injections to accomplish similar results. The filler increases the volume beneath the hands' skin–this eliminates wrinkles and makes the skin appear thicker, fuller, and healthier. Results from fillers will typically last anywhere between 12 and 18 months, depending on the brand of filler. However, no downtime is associated with filler injections, and normal activity can usually be resumed immediately.
