How old do your hands look? After rejuvenating the face, many patients turn their attention to their aging hands. Hands show their age with loss of volume, accentuation of tendons and veins, and the presence of multiple age spots. What good is concealing the wrinkles on your face if your hands still give away your true age.
Fortunately, making hands look younger is standard practice for Plastic Surgery Associates, PC. There are non-surgical and surgical rejuvenation treatments available. Let’s take a look at the options available for hand rejuvenation.
Non-Surgical Hand Rejuvenation Options
Adding Volume to the Aging Hand-
Radiesse or Sculptra are volumizing fillers that can be injected into the backs of the hands. This restores the hand to a more youthful contour and blunts the prominence of tendons and veins to correct wrinkles and plump up areas of thinning skin.
Removing Age Spots from the Aging Hand –
Age spots can be quickly removed from the aging hand the same way that they are removed from the face, with Fraxel Laser Treatments which aids in correcting aging, wrinkled, and sun-damaged skin.
Surgical Hand Rejuvenation Procedure
Fat Transfer is a viable option to improve areas on the hands where the skin is slack or the veins sit too close to the surface of the skin. The added fat will bring volume to the lacking area, and make the skin smoother and tauter so that the veins are not quite as prominent. During a fat transfer procedure, Dr. Magassy will take the fat from another area of the body, purify the removed fat and then inject the fat into the specified area on the hands. This procedure is ideal for those who would also like liposuction on an area where there are excess amounts of fat deposits.
Once you have new youthful looking hands, make sure to use sunscreen after your procedure to keep your hands looking young.
