Besides the face and neck, hands are one of the first places on the body to show signs of aging. Hands are susceptible to sun damage, wrinkling, and developing prominent veins or loose skin that can make you appear older than you are.
A number of cosmetic procedures are available to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin and to improve the overall texture and quality of the skin.
Who Is a Candidate for Hand Rejuvenation Treatment?
Hand rejuvenation is appropriate for almost any patient as long as they are in good overall health.
Most patients undergoing these treatments do so for the following reasons:
- They are unhappy with prominent tendons and veins caused by volume loss.
- They want to eliminate age spots or otherwise improve their skin tone and texture.
- The skin on their hands is loose, thin, and wrinkled.
Cosmetic Procedures for Hand Rejuvenation:
The majority of procedures used to restore the youthful appearance of hands are minimally invasive.
Injectable fillers of calcium hydroxylapatite or hyaluronic acid
may be injected at multiple locations on the hand to add volume and reduce the appearance of veins and protruding bones.
involves injecting a solution into the vein that will cause it to shrink. After treatment, the vein will gradually turn white and disappear.
use light to coagulate blood vessels so that they can be absorbed by the body. Laser treatments work best on small to medium blood vessels.
reduce the appearance of irregular pigmentation, discoloration, and superficial wrinkles. Chemical peels work by causing controlled damaged to the top layer of skin. The new skin that emerges looks smoother and more youthful
Intense pulsed light therapy and photodynamic therapy
use beams of high-intensity light to damage the top layers of the skin. New, healthy-looking skin emerges naturally as part of the healing process.
