Don’t let your hands show your age. Instead, consider hand rejuvenation with the professionals at Heights Plastic Surgery. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Cara Downey, and her expert team of professionals are proud to offer hand rejuvenation to residents of Houston, Sugar Land, The Woodlands, and the neighboring communities in east Texas.
What is Hand Rejuvenation?
We do many things with our hands and rarely ever protect them from harsh environmental elements. As a result, our hands can actually appear older than the rest of us does. With age, wear, and tear, our hands can develop thin and sunken skin, wrinkles and fine lines, dark spots and freckles, crepe-like appearance, and enlarged pores. Fat grafting to the hands is a special hand rejuvenation process that reverses these problems, leaving them fuller, smoother and younger. It stimulates the production of collagen and thickens the skin.
How Much Does Hand Rejuvenation Cost in Houston, TX?
The average cost of hand rejuvenation in Houston typically ranges from $1,500 to $2,200. The total cost for your hand rejuvenation will depend on factors such as the type of technique you choose to rejuvenate your hands, your surgeon’s fee, the location of your procedure, and other miscellaneous medical expenses. At Heights Plastic Surgery, we accept cash and all major credit cards. We are also happy to offer financing through CareCredit® for patients. Because hand rejuvenation is typically more about cosmetic appearance and is less of a medical necessity, it is not covered by most insurance plans.

How is Hand Rejuvenation Performed?
Hand rejuvenation is a procedure done in the comfort of our inviting office that typically takes under an hour to complete. Dr. Downey can perform the following hand rejuvenation techniques in a two-step process.
- Laser skin resurfacing. The gentle application of laser technology improves textural irregularities and uneven skin tone on your hands. To accomplish this, the application of Broadband Light (BBL) or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) may be used.
- Dermal Fillers. To plump up sunken areas on the hands, injectable fillers are used after laser skin resurfacing treatment. There are different types of injectable fillers that can be used for hand rejuvenation including fat transfer, Sculptra®, and Radiesse®.
Fat transfer can be accomplished during one to two outpatient office procedures and, though you may require touch-ups as the aging process continues, the volume placed is permanent. Dermal fillers are a temporary solution that will need to be repeated every four months to two years, depending on the product used.
What Can I Expect During My Hand Rejuvenation Recovery?
Because hand rejuvenation is a minimally invasive, non-surgical cosmetic procedure, there is no formal downtime or recovery period associated with your treatment. While swelling, bruising, and mild tenderness may occur following your hand rejuvenation treatment, these symptoms typically subside on their own after just two to three days. Patients who come in for hand rejuvenation are able to return to work and their normal daily activities immediately following treatment.
