Nonsurgical hand rejuvenation helps restore the appearance of the hands. Hand rejuvenation techniques provide solutions for more even skin tone on the hands and increased volume, creating a supple, youthful, and rejuvenated appearance.
A Cosmetic Solution For Youthful Looking Hands
Hands receive a lot of exposure. Whether it’s from sun damage, overuse of chemical products without gloves, or simply aging, the hands will eventually show visible signs aging.
Some of the most common visual concerns include darkened spots (also known as age spots), precancerous growths, the loss of fatty tissue, and pronounced veins all making the hands look bony and worn out.
Hand rejuvenation treatments help to counter these various problems by restoring the appearance of youthful looking hands. There are various treatment options available for hand rejuvenation. Often the combination of multiple approaches will achieve the desired result.
The most common procedures for hand rejuvenation include:
- Chemical Peel: Chemicals are applied to the skin causing age spots to disappear while adding dimension to hand tissue.
- Sclerotherapy: Sclerosing solution is injected into visible undesirable veins. The chemical solution irritates the veins, causing them to turn white and gradually disappear.
- Microdermabrasion: A superficial skin polishing procedure which involves sanding off the first layer of skin with microscopic crystals.
- Laser Skin Resurfacing: Short bursts of laser light remove unsightly veins and dark “age” spots from the skin in a gentler alternative to chemical solutions.
- Injectable fillers (RADIESSE, Collagen, Restylane, etc.) – Fillers are injected into the hands in order to plump the skin, giving it a more youthful appearance.
