What Can Be Done About Aging Hands?

My patients spend countless hours researching the best preventative and maintenance regimens for care of their facial skin. They return like clockwork for chemical peels, Botox and filler treatments. They perform exhaustive online research to evaluate surgical options for facial rejuvenation. Together, we make decisions on what treatments to pursue to achieve their goals. 

The one issue that is often falls through the cracks is aging of the hands. Second only to our face, the appearance of the hands is a dead giveaway of a person's age and the amount of sun damage they've experienced. Most importantly, if we don't address the hands, there is a discordance in the appearance of the face and hands that is noticeable.

So what options are available to rejuvenate and "spruce up" the appearance of hand aging? 

We perform an increasing number of filler treatments to the back of the hands and laser resurfacing of the hands to fill, tighten and rejuvenate the hands. Two syringes of a dermal filler such as Radiesse can be used to fill the back of the hands with several painless injections. The filler is then smoothed and massaged into the valleys between the tendons of the back of the hand to turn back the clock and plump the hands. These results last for over 12 months.

Once the hands have been filled and plumped we perform laser resurfacing to tighten the skin, eliminate irregular pigmentation and eliminate wrinkles in the hands. With the addition of topical numbing cream, this treatment is painless.

Before - Radiesse Hand Rejuvenation
After - Radiesse Hand Rejuvenation

This combination of treatments is safe and effective for both women and men. The treatments have a very high satisfaction rate and represent the icing on the cake that complements all of the effort we put forth to care for our faces.
