The hands can often develop lines and wrinkles faster than the rest of your body, which is why hand rejuvenation has become extremely popular procedure. There are several reasons why patients might want to address aging in the hands, namely that the appearance of the hands do not match your stated age or appearance.

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.

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 the physiology and desired outcome of each individual patient.
Depending on the nature of the signs of aging that are present on your hands, there may be both surgical and non surgical hand rejuvenation options for patients. Surgical options will usually involve a fat transfer or fat grafting, meaning good hand rejuvenation candidates would have a sufficient amount of 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.

Hand rejuvenation procedures can be either surgical or non surgical in nature. Surgical hand rejuvenation, involving liposuction, is performed on an outpatient basis. Non surgical hand rejuvenation, involving the use of dermal fillers or lasers, may be performed in our Chicago area office.
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 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: Non surgical hand rejuvenation relies on the use of dermal filler injections in order to accomplish similar results. The filler increases the volume beneath the skin of the hands–this simultaneously 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. There is, however, no down time associated with filler injections and normal activity can usually be resumed immediately.

He took the time to explain the process and what I should expect (from facial fillers). I appreciated the fact that he did not try to recommend any procedures I did not need or want. Dr. Ogilvie thoroughly and patiently answered my questions. I always felt as if I was his only patient. I am so happy with my results. He placed the filler perfectly and my results were exactly what I wanted. What a great experience!
