Hand Rejuvenation is a highly overlooked procedure when considering all signs of aging. It’s a common sign of aging, yet so many people who maintain their skin with rejuvenation treatments such as Botox, Intense Pulse Light, Juvederm, Radiesse and Artefill leave the hands untreated.
Typical signs of aging hands are wrinkles, volume loss and aging spots. A combination of the same treatments used to treat the face can also be used to treat the hands.
Here is a quick reference guide to help you determine which services are right for you.
Symptom: Aging Spots
Treatment: Photorejuvenation or IPL (Intense Pulse Light) uses light base treatment to reduce pigment, sun damaged skin, rosacea and unwanted spider veins. An Average of 3 to 4 treatments is necessary depending on the severity of the condition. The hands can also be treated along with the face, to give a more youthful appearance.
Symptom: Wrinkles / Volume Loss
Treatment: As we age our hands may become hollow which may bring about the appearance of wrinkles. A age old technique that is a best kept secret is putting a wrinkle filler underneath the skin. This fills in the volume loss and gives the appearance of smoother skin. The most common fillers used for this purpose are Radiesse, Artefill and platelet rich plasma. These options tend you give you the best bang for your buck, since they last the longest. Depending on the person a single treatment can last anywhere from 1 to 5 years.
Symptom: Wrinkles / Dry Skin
Treatment: Wrinkles are due to a host of issues, sun damage, aging, and exposure to chemicals can all leave the hands crepy and with loose skin. Resurfacing is another option for one who would like to target everything at once. Remove pigment, reduce wrinkles and build collagen.
