Hand aging happens for a number of reasons. Years of the sun’s UV rays causes pigmentation issues as well as dullness, spots, wrinkles and creepiness. Also, natural collagen breaks down and fatty tissue is lost resulting in a heightened appearance of veins and tendons.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment paired sometimes with liquid nitrogen treatments. The IPL is a light treatment that has a special wavelength of visible light that targets and destroys pigment clearing our hands of superficial spots. Some of the spots that we notice on our hands are keratosis which lie on top of the skin and are caused by sun damage and genetics. Keratosis generally require liquid nitrogen treatments to slough them off. Before and After Skincare Clinic gives you onsultation and fidns patients need a combination treatment for the best result.
TONE, TEXTURE, WRINKLING
Some patients are most bothered by the tone, texture, and wrinkling of their hands. The Fraxel Restore laser is excellent at improving this degraded tissue and stimulating collagen to replenish the skin of its youthful appearance. The laser penetrates into the dermal layer of the skin causing new collagen production which leaves the hands looking fresher and younger. Many patients find the most benefit doing a series of 3 treatments and find the results to be very long lasting.
Many patients are bothered by the fat and tissue loss of their hands and come in complaining of skeleton looking hands where bones and tendons are prominent. This is a problem with volume and thankfully we now have two FDA approved treatments to correct this. We use dermal fillers such as Radiesse and Restylane Lyft. These are injected into the backs of the hands and instantly and dramatically add back volume to the areas. The filler injections are dramatic, require no downtime, and results can last for at least a year.
