Many women desire to rejuvenate their hands as well as their faces, as older-looking hands can be incongruous with their younger, rejuvenated faces. Treatments can be tailored to improve specific aspects of aging hands.
SKIN TEXTURE changes are treated with Fraxel® Restore Laser to improve thin, paper-like appearance. Peels and CO2 lasers are usually too risky when applied to the hands.
BROWN AND AGE SPOTS respond to Fraxel, IPL, and VersaPulse® Aesthetic Laser. Prominent veins can be treated by sclero-injection therapy and eliminated.
THE BONY APPEARANCE OF THE HANDS is one of the most distressing features of aging. A variety of fillers, including Radiesse®, Sculptra® Aesthetic, and autologous fat can fill hollow bony spaces and restore a more youthful contour.
ACTINIC KERATOSIS AND PRECANCER can be treated with liquid nitrogen, 5 flurouracil (Carac®), or photodynamic therapy.
An appropriate skin regime is important to maintaining your rejuvenated hands, and should include sunscreen, Retin-A, and driving gloves.
