“My face looks 50 but my hands look 65.”
We hear this statement a lot from our patients we help to meet their aesthetic goals. With so much anti-aging focus concentrated on the face, the hands can become an afterthought and are often a dead giveaway for a patient’s age. One patient explained to us that she had “skeleton hands”. Now we would never classify them like that, but she had taken such great care of her face and neck that her hands were a complete mismatch.
There are 2 key issues when dealing with aging hands – dark spots and loss of volume. Maybe you have one, or maybe you have both, but luckily there are ways to help.
Here at Doctor’s Approach, our hand rejuvenation therapy can help those thin, tired looking hands. One of the most effective and convenient solutions for dark spots is the use of Intense Pulse Light (IPL). This form of photo-rejuvenation will smooth color irregularities and evens skin tone. IPL treatments employ light wavelengths that go after melanin that lead to age or sun spots. Treated areas that darken typically fade after a few days and continue to improve over the following weeks.
A dermal filler like Radiesse is an effective treatment for adding volume back into the hand. This injectable filler can be an excellent option for many patients seeking to replenish lost volume and minimize the visibility of tendons, veins, and joints that become more apparent with skin thinning. Fillers are commonly used in other parts of the body, especially the face, and can be employed with minimal discomfort and virtually no downtime. They are proven to successfully restore volume loss for smooth, natural-looking results that won’t give away your age.
