Treatment for aging hands
Hands can be a dead giveaway for aging, especially when a patient has kept up with cosmetic treatments on the face. Problems seen are tissue loss showing the tendons, brown pigmentation, and large veins. The tissue loss can be corrected with fat or other injections with fillers such as Radiesse. The pigmentation can be treated with a variety of lasers such as IPL, and the veins can be injected with sclerosing agents such as Asclera. These treatments can be combined to provide a much more youthful hands.
Hand Rejuvenation Procedures
Hi Michelle. Yes, there are several options for hand rejuvenation. We offer Restylane and Radiesse to replace fatty tissue loss (this is one part of the wrinkling effect) and we also offer laser treatments for improving the texture and removing sun damage. If the wrinkles are the primary issue, we would probably suggest Radiesse for lost volume. This can help hide the wrinkles by providing volume to the back of the hands. We typically use 3 CCs over 2 injections and it lasts up to a year. You can view an example below.
