If our eyes are the windows into our soul, then our hands tell the story of our age. Oftentimes, we take great care of our face, but it is our neck, chest, and hands that give our true age away. Over time, hands can become speckled with brown pigmentation including sun spots, veins become more prominent, and our tendons on the back of our hands more visible.
Alas, there is much we can do to spruce the hands up! To disguise ropey veins and visible tendons, we can add volume back using a variety of fillers. Excellent choices for hand rejuvenation are Radiesse, Perlane, and fat transplantation. Radiesse is a calcium-based filler that also promotes new collagen growth, a process called “neocollagenesis.” Results last at least 9 to 12 months. Perlane is in the Restylane family of products– it is basically a larger molecule form of Restylane, both of which are hyaluronic acids. Hyaluronic acid products plump the areas of filler placement, including the hands. Finally, fat transplantation can be used to give longer lasting volume back to the hands. Fat can be harvested quickly, painlessly, and easily during an office visit and transplanted to the back of the hands for a very natural looking result.
Regardless of the filler used, the procedure of hand volumization is painless with the use of blunt-tipped cannulas. These novel devices reduce pain, trauma, swelling, and bruising associated with filler use. Check out Dr. Palm’s video demonstrating the technique…
To combat sun damage, a series of IPL treatments can be completed on the hands to remove brown spots from the sun and even firm up the skin. An IPL is a quick treatment with no downtime, and at Art of Skin MD topical numbing is provided, which makes the procedure virtually painless.
