As rejuvenation for the face and neck is becoming more advanced, patients are beginning to take notice of the occurring changes that are taking place on their hands. Due to them almost always being exposed, the hands are one of the most age-telling areas on the body.
The skin and collagen of the hands become lax and discolored with age or sun spots due to chronic sun exposure as well as time. The hands become more “bony” in appearance from losing their firmness and plumpness, often appearing skeletal with prominent veins.
These changes can be treated effortlessly by using a set of non-invasive, non-surgical procedures which result in high satisfaction and a duration of improvement.
Replenish the Volume
Radiesse has been approved by the FDA as the first and only injectable filler to correct the bony, skeletal, and thinning appearance of hands that have more vein and bone show. Radiesse gives a more youthful appearance to the hands by instantly restoring and plumping. Made from microspheres of natural calcium hydroxylapatite, Radiesse is a filler that provides a scaffold to stimulate your body’s own natural production of collagen.
Radiesse is clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients in a 15 minute treatment session! The product is placed on the back of the hands beneath the skin, resulting in a smooth, beautiful, and natural appearance. Radiesse is also FDA approved to mix with lidocaine, an anesthetic, to significantly reduce injection-related pain.
Brown Spot Removal
If you want to further reduce the aging appearance of your hands, try an easy IPL laser treatment. Just 1 to 2 sessions can clear away brown spots on the hands with minimal downtime. The discolorations of the hands are targeted by the lasers, so the skin appears even toned and not “spotty”.
Maintenance and Nourishment
It’s very important to maintain the texture of the skin. To discourage the return of brown spots, you should do your best to keep your hands nourished, moisturized, and protected from the sun. Taking these precautions will also reduce crepiness and fine lines, as well as give the appearance of healthy thickened skin. Your hands should be applied and reapplied with daily sunscreens throughout the day and nourished with a nightly treatment in the evening. If you drive a lot, fingerless sun protective gloves will help keep your hands safe during those hours in the car, and if you get gel manicures, request an LED light for curing, NOT a UV lamp.
