A new cosmetic procedure is increasing in popularity.
People over the age of 40 are seeking out hand injections to reduce the signs of ageing.

There were about 23,000,000 cosmetic procedures performed in 2016, according to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Out of those, about 8,000,000 procedures used “injectables” such as botulinum toxin (Botox) and hyaluronic acid (fillers).
