Wrinkle & Spot Treatment for Hands
Cosmetic procedures for the face are the gold standard for people who want to achieve a more youthful appearance. But many people are not aware how much the hands can give away your age. In fact, if your hands look much older than your face, it can be a giveaway that you may have had facial cosmetic surgery because some aspects of your appearance are mismatched.
Brown Spots & Pigmentation
Exposure to the sun, hormonal changes and aging can cause uneven pigmentation, unsightly brown spots and skin cancers. During menopause, hormone levels drop and contribute further to dry, thin skin.
For all of these reasons, your hands deserve as much attention as your face. For people who feel that the appearance of their hands could use some improvement, there are now treatments that can help. A gentle TCA chemical peel or IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments can help reduce and even eliminate brown spots, and the TCA peel will improve the texture of the skin and reduce wrinkles.
Veins & Ligaments
During the aging process, our skin gets thinner. This is especially noticeable when it comes to our hands. Veins and ligaments may become very noticeable and can even create the skeletal look sometimes seen in people’s hands.
We uses the cosmetic filler Radiesse or fat to rejuvenate the hands and create a smoother appearance. It is important that a qualified surgeon who is very familiar with the anatomy of the hands perform any cosmetic hand procedures. The Radiesse hand treatment takes about 15 minutes and involves the use of only local anesthesia. The active ingredient in Radiesse is calcium hydroxylapatite, which stimulates the body to produce its own collagen and is then metabolized.
Radiesse thickens thinning skin and gives the hands a more full and youthful tone. Because we use our hands constantly to communicate, create and nurture, it is easy to forget that the hands are on display all the time. Many patients who have decided to undergo facial cosmetic procedures also opt to have their hands rejuvenate at the same time for a holistic, natural result.
