Hand Rejuvenation

Hand Rejuvenation

Hands are one of the first places where the telltale signs of aging become apparent. Even if you have taken steps to keep your face and neck looking youthful, sun-damaged, veiny, wrinkled hands can make you look older than you are. There are a number of effective techniques to rejuvenate your hands, improving the quality and texture of your skin, while decreasing the wrinkling and prominent veins.

When to Consider Hand Rejuvenation

  • If your hands have prominent veins and tendons because of volume loss
  • If your hands are wrinkled and thin
  • If your hands have age spots
  • If your hands would benefit from improved skin tone and color

Treatment Options

Some of the available options for hand rejuvenation are outlined below. These can be used alone or in combination to enhance the overall results. Your surgeon will recommend an approach based upon your treatment needs and aesthetic goals.

  1. Fillers such as polyactic acid or hyaluronic acid
  2. The filler is injected into the hand at multiple locations.
  3. It is placed in layers at multiple levels to reshape and augment the hands.
  • Laser treatment is typically used to treat small to medium-sized blood vessels (1-3 mm in diameter).
  • A handpiece is passed over your skin and the laser light is absorbed by the blood, causing the vessels to coagulate and be absorbed by the body.
  • There is little downtime.
  • Treatment for fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, sun damage, or irregular pigmentation
  • A chemical solution is applied to your hands with a sponge, cotton pad or swab, or brush.
  • Your esthetician decides how long to leave the solution on your hands by carefully observing any changes in the appearance of your skin.
  • With certain types of chemical peels, the solution may be “neutralized” after an appropriate amount of time has elapsed.
  • No covering or after-peel ointment is necessary and you can expect little downtime.
  • Your eyes will be covered for protection from the laser.
  • The IPL hand piece is placed directly over the treatment area and light waves are emitted.
  • After a series of treatments, the spots and discolorations on your hands will be begin to fade and disappear.
  • Recovery from IPL is similar to recovering from a mild sunburn.
  • Your eyes will be covered for protection from the laser.
  • A wand is passed over your skin and the resurfacing laser emits a very brief pulse of high intensity light that damages the upper layers of your skin.
  • As your skin heals, healthier, younger looking tissue emerges.
  • Treatment for very loose and wrinkled skin
