What are your hands signaling about your age?
The popularity of cosmetic treatments, surgical and non-surgical, has allowed us to practically turn back the hands of time. Our faces look smoother and fuller, and even our bodies are benefitting from today’s many effective procedures. Yet, even as we take steps to stay looking more youthful, we’re forgetting one of the first places where signs of aging are sending out easily noticeable signals: our hands.
Madonna knows what we’re talking about
The 58-year-old entertainer has taken many steps to keep her appearance updated. But a recent photo made it clear that her hands don’t match her face and body. Many of us work hard to keep our faces and necks looking youthful, from sunscreen to fillers and Botox to facelifts. Yet our sun-damaged, veiny, wrinkled hands might look like they belong on another person. It’s time for your hands to send a new signal.
There are many ways your hands send aging signals
- Prominent veins and tendons due to volume loss
- Wrinkled and thin skin
- Age spots
- Poor skin tone and color
Hand rejuvenation options
We can offer many treatment options, most of which are minimally invasive. If you have very loose, wrinkled skin, we may recommend surgery to remove excess skin.
Protruding bones, tendons and veins? We recommend volume replacement
Fillers or fat injections can be placed in the hands at multiple locations in multiple layers in order reshape hands and provide a more youthful appearance and contour. Fillers usually last about three months to one year; fat graft injections usually last longer.
In addition, your hands may benefit from
•Intense pulsed light (IPL)
•Laser skin resurfacing
This procedure can also be used to treat fine wrinkles, skin discoloration, sun damage and age spots.
•Photodynamic therapy (PDT)
This procedure can be used with IPL for more aggressive treatment of irregular pigmentation and brown spots.
•Sclerotherapy or laser vein treatments
•Skin excision and tightening
