When most people begin to consider anti-aging treatments and aesthetic medical procedures for themselves, they often focus on the “obvious” areas of the body which include the face, chest, butt, and legs. It’s interesting that the hands do not earn a top spot on the list as they are often one of the very first areas of the body that begin to display the telltale signs of aging. Not only are hands subjected to years of UV exposure, weather, and daily use over the course of a lifetime, but they show off their age very quickly.
However, there is good news! Hand Rejuvenation is becoming one of the more popular aesthetic treatments. With advances in the aesthetic medical industry, there are several procedures available that can restore volume and vitality to the hands. Treatments are easy and effective and can be performed during a routine office visit.
As our bodies age, our skin experiences decreasing production levels of collagen and elastin, which are the key ingredients that maintain firm, plump, and healthy skin. When it comes to our hands, laser technology can be your best friend. During treatment, the laser will heat the existing collagen causing a lift and general tightening of the skin. This treatment will also stimulate additional production of collagen and elastin, which will continue to lift and tighten the area over the course of time.
As we become older, our hands experience a noticeable loss of volume, which results in the connective ligaments and bones of the hands becoming more visible. This natural loss of volume can be easily restored with the use of dermal fillers, such as Radiesse and Restylane. Radiesse is dense filler with biostimulating properties. It volumizes immediately and works to stimulate collagen production over the course of time. Radiesse is one of the few FDA Approved Products for Hand Rejuvenation.
If the goal is to reduce sun damage and refresh the skin of the hands, there are chemical formulas that can be applied topically to achieve this result. Skin will become revitalized as skill cells begin to shed and new layers of skin become exposed. This creates a refreshed appearance that is smooth to the touch.
