Signs of Aging in the Hands
Hands are among the areas where signs of aging become most visibly apparent. Sun-damaged hands with pronounced age spots, veins, and wrinkles can make you look aged even if you maintain an otherwise youthful appearance in your face and body.
You may wish to consider hand rejuvenation if you are beginning to notice any of the following signs of aging on your hands:
Hand Rejuvenation Treatments
There are several cosmetic techniques that may be used to rejuvenate your hands, improving the texture, tone, and elasticity of your skin, while reducing the appearance of age spots, wrinkling, and prominent veins.
Below are some of the available treatment options for hand rejuvenation at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa. Your unique, customized treatment will depend upon your specific condition and aesthetic goals, but may include any of the following:
Dermal Filler Injections
Dermal injection treatments, such as Radiesse® or Restylane Lyft® may be used to increase skin volume in your hands and fill in areas surrounding prominent bones and veins.
If your hands are badly affected by age spots or sun damage, or if you have a lot of discoloration, laser skin surfacing may be used to diminish the appearance of age spots, even out skin tone, and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. At Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa we offer IPL hand photo rejuvenation and Venus Viva nanofractional radiofrequency skin resurfacing.
Fat Transfer or Fat Grafting
This procedure extracts fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen or flanks, and re-injects it into your hands to augment volume, camouflage visible blood vessels and tendons, and improve the tone and elasticity of your skin over time.
Specialized chemical peels may be used to help restore smoothness and suppleness to the skin of your hands, rejuvenating their appearance. Chemical peels may also be useful in helping to gradually reduce the appearance of age spots and uneven skin tone caused by sun damage.
Some of these procedures may require multiple treatment sessions in order to produce optimal results.
What is the best treatment for hand rejuvenation?
Your treatment options for aging signs in the hands can depend on your unique concerns. For prominent veins or tendons, dermal fillers can help restore volume. For age spots and discoloration, chemical peels or IPL are effective options. Technologies like microneedling or Venus Viva can even be used for hand rejuvenation.
How is hand rejuvenation done?
Hand rejuvenation uses many of the same treatments and technologies as non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Dermal fillers are one of the most popular options for hand rejuvenation, but laser platforms, chemical peels, and even minimally invasive techniques like fat transfer can be used.
How long does filler last in hands?
Radiesse, the dermal filler most popularly used in hand rejuvenation, can last for 12-18 months before beginning to fade.
Which laser is best for hands?
IPL is one of the most effective technologies for reducing the appearance of age spots on the hands. Venus Viva is a nano-fractional radiofrequency platform that can promote smoother, younger skin on the hands. Either option can be effective based on your goals.
Can Botox, Dysport, Xeomin be used on hands?
Yes. Neurotoxins are an extremely effective way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and that includes signs of aging in the hands. It typically lasts as long as neuromodulator injections in other areas (3-4 months) although this can depend on many different factors, such as your metabolism and physical activity levels.
