Take a minute to look at your hands. What do you see? Are they bony? Are your veins prominent? Is the skin becoming loose, without elasticity? Your hands take a beating every day, from daily chores to high doses of sun and cold weather. It’s no wonder the years show. If the eyes are the window to the soul, the hands are a window to our age.
As we age, hands loose volume, fat, and elasticity. As the fatty layer under the skin slowly disappears, the skin becomes more translucent and wrinkled. The underlying structures of the hand, like bones and veins, become more apparent. Skin will no longer bounce back when pinched. All the years of sun will make skin mottled with age spots and dark areas. The distress our hands suffer is unavoidable, and their aging becomes inevitable.
There is help for your paws, at your top Housteon cosmetic surgeon’s office. Hand rejuvenation can give back that lost volume, tighten the sagging skin, remove veins and discoloration, taking years off of your appearance. Steadily increasing in popularity over the last few years, there is now a variety of treatments available, and can be used alone or in combination, to achieve optimum results.
Chemical Peels: By using a chemical solution to the skin, age spots disappear and the skin become less transparent.
Microdermabrasion: Buffing out the most superficial skin layer, Microdermabrasion gives hands a younger appearance, and promotes the growth of new collagen, increasing volume and structure.
Laser Resurfacing: Through short bursts of light, unsightly veins and age spots are gently removed from the skin.
Sclerotherapy: A sclerosing chemical is injected directly into unsightly veins, causing them to turn white and gradually disappear.
Fat Transfer: One of the newest technologies in Hand Rejuvenation, a Hand Fat Transfer actually takes fat cells from one area of the body and places it under the surface of the skin. The fatty tissue provides volume to the hand, and as the fat cells regenerate, a continued youthfulness.
