Our team of Dermatologists at Dermatology & Laser Surgery Center offer a number of advanced procedures that can renew the appearance of the hands. While the most conspicuous signs of aging or skin damage can appear along the face, many individuals become very self-conscious when they notice prominent changes to the hands, as well. The natural aging process, sun exposure, and even just continuous use of the hands can lead to a loss of collagen, thinning skin, more noticeable veins, wrinkles, and a “skeletal” appearance. With procedures such as Radiesse® injections and Fraxel laser skin resurfacing, we can help you rejuvenate the look of your hands.
Enhanced Volume with Radiesse®
Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler composed of calcium-based microspheres which can help stimulate the growth of collagen in the skin. While more commonly known to smooth out facial wrinkles and add volume to facial features, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has also approved Radiesse® as a hand rejuvenation treatment. Injection of Radiesse® into targeted areas of the hands can restore lost volume and diminish the appearance of prominent veins and bones, producing a healthier and younger look. The treatment is a quick, in-office procedure, and a numbing cream can be applied prior to treatment to minimize discomfort.
In addition to its remarkable effects, the results of Radiesse® are known to be long-lasting. In fact, many patients have experienced the benefits of Radiesse® for up to two years..
Fraxel Laser Resurfacing for Sun Damage and Brown Spots
For hands that are exhibiting prominent signs of brown spots, sun damage, and areas of discoloration, Fraxel laser skin resurfacing is an ideal solution. Fraxel laser treatment can usually be completed in about 15 minutes, following an hour of topical anesthetic. While some temporary redness and swelling in the treatment areas are common after Fraxel laser procedures, downtime is typically 3-5 days.
Radiesse® and Fraxel laser resurfacing can be combined for patients who are experiencing both a loss of volume as well as discoloration and texture concerns along their hands. These treatments have shown to provide long-lasting, beautiful results, and have helped many individuals feel more confident in their appearance.
Hand rejuvenation procedures can ultimately enhance volume and firmness of the skin while giving the hands a more youthful and healthy look. If you are considering treatment to revitalize the appearance of your hands, we encourage you to schedule a consultation here at Dermatology & Laser Surgery Center.
