Hand Rejuvenation Before & After Photos

Sun Damage, Restoration of Lost Volume, Removal of Age Spots

Look beyond the face, and what gives our age away? The hands! Natural aging processes and sun damage cause characteristic changes over time. Fat is lost into maturity, leading to visible tendons and veins. The veins themselves become more tortuous, visible, and unsightly. UV and sun exposure causes pigmentation, sun spots, textural changes and even precancerous skin lesions called actinic keratoses.

Hand rejuvenation is possible. Elimination of sun damage, restoration of lost volume, and removal or camouflage of hand veins are all part of a comprehensive program to restore a more youthful appearance to the hands. Skin rehabilitation of the hands can be accomplished by light and laser procedures such as IPL, fractionated laser resurfacing, and nonablative lasers (ResurFX). Injectable fillers such as Radiesse or fat transfer can replace soft tissue volume loss on the hands. Unsightly veins can be camouflaged by restoring lost volume on the back of the hands or by treating them directly through sclerotherapy.
