aging hand rejuvenation
Most of us concentrate all efforts on facial rejuvenation. We get rid of wrinkles, age spots replenish volume and shed a few years off our faces. But then comes the truth!
Hands, we forgot our hands. We cannot show that beautiful jewelry or fabulous new polish without feeling again the weight of those years in the sun.
Hands, the same as face, show signs of aging, loss of elasticity, wrinkling, loss of volume and thinning of the skin. The skin looks unattractive, the veins appear more prominent, tendons are visible and all those age spots give away our age.*

How does chemical peel work?*
Chemical peels can remove pigment, stimulate collagen and improve elasticity. They can be used alone or in combination with other treatments in the more advanced cases
How does laser skin resurfacing work?*
Today’s advanced laser technology can improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles, and correct pigmentation, promoting beautiful, healthy, and younger looking skin. During treatment, laser energy targets both the damaged skin at the surface and the aging collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. Microscopic wounds are made in the treatment area, leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. By limiting skin damage, deep and highly effective skin rejuvenation can be achieved, while minimizing healing time. The heat from the laser also stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms, encouraging the production of new collagen and elastin in the months following the procedure. An increase in collagen and elastin will provide natural skin firmness and elasticity. Find out more about laser skin resurfacing.
The treatment for hand rejuvenation is tailored specifically to the degree of aging: mild, moderate, severe and very severe. A careful evaluation precedes the treatments, which may consist only in a peel, or microdermabarsion, IPL phototherapy, ablative lasers, or fillers. The degree of aging will determine if you will need one or of these treatments or a combination of two or more treatments.
How do fillers work?*
Fillers are ideal for those situations where there is loss of volume, the veins and tendons are prominent, the skin is lose and wrinkled. Two fillers ideal for hand rejuvenation are Sculptra (poly- L- lactic acid) and the recently approved filler called Radiesse (calcium hydroxilapatite). These fillers are injected in the dorsum of the hand and will restore again the volume lost by aging.
