PRP Hand Rejuvenation Treatment

What kind of story do hands tell? Do they express pain and fatigue? Do they reveal an injury, arthritis, or wrinkles and age spots? PRP is a treatment to invest in before scheduling a surgical procedure. PRP can bring dramatic healing to the hands quickly and effectively.

Hands show one’s age. They come into contact with harsh environmental conditions and are subject to injury. PRP treatments for hand rejuvenation offer benefits that enhance the appearance of hands.

Conditions Treated using PRP for Hand Rejuvenation

Those struggling with any of the following can benefit from PRP injections in the hands:

  • Excessive wrinkles
  • Age or liver spots
  • Loss of volume in hands
  • Injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Trigger finger

PRP injections use the patient’s plasma to help repair skin issues and injuries in the hand. This process provides a safe, natural, quick remedy for unsightly hands. PRP is used mainly for rejuvenation and swift healing purposes.

Hand Injuries

Not only do the hands suffer from aging, but they also suffer from pain. This pain can also come from arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, or hand, wrist, and finger injuries and can happen at any age. PRP treatments provide aid in restoring the needed strength, mobility, and range of motion necessary in the hands, fingers, and wrists.


The PRP procedure is straightforward and quick. It’s very similar to taking a sample of an individual’s blood. However, 30-60 ml of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm, collected into a tube, and placed into a centrifuge. The blood sample is spun around to remove the plasma and platelets from the blood until the rich plasma separates from the blood particles.

After numbing the area, the plasma is injected into the patient’s hand. Unlike a surgical operation, PRP allows patients to resume daily activities quickly.

Types of Hand Aging

  • Intrinsic. This type of aging occurs naturally as we age. The hands show decreased skin volume, less elasticity, more wrinkles, and more apparent veins, tendons, and joints. Intrinsic aging affects the deep tissue within the hands.
  • Extrinsic. This happens to the above layers of the skin, known as the epidermal and dermal, or surface, layers of the skin, which can be caused by sun exposure, strong chemicals such as nicotine, diet, and lifestyle choices.


          The exact procedure determines the patient’s specific recovery time. However, most patients who have undergone PRP injections in their hands can resume their daily activities even the day following the procedure.


          After a PRP procedure, a noticeable difference can be seen within a month—the results usually last about twelve months. Therefore, treatment is advised every six months to a year, depending on the patient’s desires and needs.


          Before the hand's aging progresses, PRP treatments can help prevent the damage that occurs naturally. Of course, extrinsic aging can be prevented or delayed by applying moisturizers and sunscreen products daily.

Other Alternatives

          Other methods for improving hand appearance can include surgeries and botox. However, those options might be necessary depending on the patient’s situation. Recovery time is less with PRP and physical therapy, and scarring issues are minimal.

Of course, surgical fees are much more expensive than any PRP treatment. The cost of the procedure is discussed during the consultation.
