Much attention is given to the treatment of conditions related to sun damaged and aging skin of the face, neck and décolletage, however, the hands are often one of the most tell tale signs of the aging process at work. In fact, due to the amount of exposure to the elements, hands often may appear older than the rest of our bodies.
As we age, our hands loose plumpness and the skin becomes thinner making tendons, veins and joints appear more visible. The texture of the skin may develop a tissue like appearance and often age spots are prevalent. In cosmetic medicine today, there is increasing attention being paid to resolving these conditions and restoring a more youthful color and appearance to the hands.
Hand Rejuvenation may include a choice of one or more treatment approaches.
Topical preparations such as Retin-A, antioxidants, glycolic acid preparations, and Meg 21 Advanced Formula can stimulate cell turnover, encouraging a return of some thickness to the skin and reduction of fine lines.
PhotoFacial with AFT Pulsed Light treatments, administered in a series, can diminish or eliminate age spots.
Radiesse™ injections, perhaps the most dramatic treatment for aging hands, can replenish lost volume instantly. This results in veins, tendons and joints becoming much less visible, creating a much more youthful appearance. The results of this treatment last up to one year.
It is most important before, during, and after Hand Rejuvenation that you apply broad spectrum sunblock with an SPF of 30 or above to the area every day of the year, even on cloudy or stormy days.
