Hand rejuvenation is a cosmetic procedure designed to improve the appearance of your hands and eliminate aging signs. Hands tend to lose their firmness and plumpness and look fragile with the passing of time. The hand rejuvenation procedure replenishes the volume of hands and gives them a more youthful appearance. After the procedure, tendons, joints, and veins lose their prominence and the results are long-lasting.
Benefits of Hand Rejuvenation
A number of conditions that often afflict the hands can be improved with hand rejuvenation treatments. Here are several benefits of this medical procedure:
- Restoration of skin affected by wrinkles, age spots, sun spots, and freckles
- Enhanced confidence and self-esteem
- Younger-looking hands can be seen immediately after the treatment
- No downtime required
- Results can last up to 2 years
- Quick treatment which can be done during a lunch break
Treatment Options Available
Chemical peel might be required to make aging hands look younger. During this procedure, chemicals are applied on the skin to eliminate aging spots and make the underlying tissue appear less transparent. If a microdermabrasion procedure is undertaken, the hands of the patient are “polished” with tiny crystals that eliminate dead skin cells and promote the growth of a new, healthy skin layer.
Short bursts of laser might be used during laser skin resurfacing procedure to remove unsightly veins and dark spots from the hands of the patient. Injectable fillers like fat, collagen or Restylane can be used to plump the hands and improve their aesthetics. Patients need to discuss with the surgeon to determine which treatment option is more suitable for them.
