Advances in cosmetic dermatology offer highly-effective treatments to treat aging skin on more than just the face. Our hands are one of the first parts of the body where photo-damage and collagen loss are apparent because they are exposed to constant sun exposure and environmental stressors. With time, skin becomes loose and crepey, dark spots appear, and veins become more prominent. In addition, UV radiation causes textural problems and discoloration, which can make your hands look older than your actual years.
If you're interested in improving tone, texture, and skin quality with hand rejuvenation, Dallas Dermatology Partners can help. We take a multi-faceted approach to revitalizing your hands and developing treatment plans tailored to individual patients' needs.
It may include multiple procedures to address specific concerns. Injectable fillers restore volume and soften the appearance of visible tendons and veins. Several FDA-approved products, including Restalyne Lyft and Volume, deliver great results. Hand filler is injected right under the skin and involves zero patient downtime.
Laser resurfacing is another valuable component of hand rejuvenation, as it targets UVA and UVB sun damage, rough texture and pigmentation issues. By stimulating new collagen growth, laser treatments help to restore skin firmness and elasticity. Our practice has a variety of cutting-edge laser treatments for hands, including the Halo Laser and BBL (Broad Band Light) photo rejuvenation.
Laser treatments and dermal fillers can address several conditions for aging hands, such as:
- Thinning skin
- Protruding veins
- Volume loss
- Lax skin
- Age spots
- Uneven tone and texture
- Wrinkles and fine lines
Anyone who wants to rejuvenate the appearance of hands with lax skin, visible veins, brown spots, volume loss, and uneven tone may be a good candidate for these minimally-invasive treatments. Most of our patients who get hand rejuvenation are looking to boost their self-confidence.
These lunchtime treatments are performed here in our Dallas office and entail minimal discomfort. Filler for hands contains a local anesthetic, and laser treatments feel somewhat like a rubber band snapped against the skin. However, both procedures are quick, and patients can resume normal activities within 24 hours.
The results of a hand rejuvenation treatment with lasers or dermal filler may last anywhere from 6 to 14 months, depending on the procedures performed and products used. The best way to maintain plump, even-toned skin on your hands is with touch-up filler or photo-rejuvenating treatments and the daily use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen.
