Get Younger Looking Hands with Hand Rejuvenation
People are primarily concerned with their face when it comes to aging. However, hands are commonly known as the part of the body that reveals someone’s true age. We use our hands day in and day out, and all the wear and tear can cause them to wrinkle. Sun exposure causes dark spots and discoloration, and loss of plumpness in the hands is a natural part of the aging process, leaving budging veins and a bony look.
If you’re tired of worn, wrinkly, hands, you should consider hand rejuvenation. There are several options for hand rejuvenation available to suit everyone’s needs, including topical treatments, laser hand rejuvenation, and injectable.
The skin of the hand can be resurfaced by laser treatment. The Fraxel laser stimulates collagen production, which increases skin elasticity for a more youthful look. The Q Switched Yag laser treats age spots to even out the skin tone of your hands. Your skin heals from the treatment to reveal healthy, younger looking tissue. IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, can also treat dark spots, and is popular amongst many patients because there is no downtime and minimal discomfort.
Injectable treatments can give hands volume that often decreases with age. One option for plumping hands is to inject a soft tissue filler, like Radiesse. Hands can also be injected with your fat. This procedure involves taking fat from another part of the body, concentrating it, and the injecting it into the hands. These types of procedures help to treat protruding bones, tendons and veins.
Topical products can also be applied for hand rejuvenation. Microdermabrasion gently removes the top layer of skin, leaving behind smoother hands. A chemical peel involves a special solution that causes skin to flake away, giving your hands a smoother feel and appearance.
