Would You Fatten Your Hands In The Name Of Beauty?

Move over, liposuction. See you later, chin transplants. There’s a new procedure in town: fat transfer to the hands. Now we at SheFinds are no longer shocked by bizarre beauty treatments. Only recently did we discover that leech therapy was all the rage as a celeb detox treatment. And we knew that a bunch of stars were into de-veining their hands for fear of -gasp – looking their age, so this new treatment doesn't necessarily throw us for a loop. We consider it an organic lip plumper for the hands. And if shooting Botox into your face is now as fast and accessible as a quick run to the Duane Reade for some anti-wrinkle cream, then why not start hitting up mini-surgical procedures for other parts of the body? Small price to pay for beauty, right? 

What happens is supposedly 'simple': fat is transferred into hands, giving them a plumper, more youthful appearance. Sounds brilliant, but, like many cosmetic surgical procedures, it’ll set you back more than a few pennies, and let's not forget – it is surgery. What do you think? Would you shell out the dough just to have your hands maintain that youthful, smooth appearance? Or are the only wrinkles that bother you on your face?

If the hands are not your primary concern, but you'd still like to keep them looking youthful, here are fabulous options for anti-aging hand treatments. 

Clinique’s Stop Signs Hand Repair ($18.50) promises to repair the signs of aging and relieve dryness. If you’re a fan, there’s also a Stop Signs for the eye area ($32.50). 


Fresh offers a Sugar Blossom Hand Treatment ($38), packed with such goodies as evening primrose extract and hibiscus flower acids to ease sun damage and fine wrinkles.  It also smells so good, you won’t be able to stop applying it.


Finally, skincare great Clarins offers their Hand & Nail Treatment Cream ($29.50), which works to keep hands smooth and supple.
