While your face may look youthful, a tell-tale sign of aging are the hands. If you display age spots or lines on the hands, it may give away your true age, even if you’ve smoothed your face of lines and wrinkles. In the skin care field, hand rejuvenation is a generic term that covers various treatments, all meant to address the signs of aging on the hands. Hand rejuvenation is popular today, as it encompasses a full-body approach to maintaining a more youthful appearance. It is important to consider all areas of the body, as treating only one area can make other non-treated areas more noticeable.
Hand rejuvenation treatments can cover the following therapies:
- Injection of a dermal filler/biostimulator for increasing volume.
- Laser ablation treatments to reduce the look of wrinkles and brown spots.
- Chemical peels to smooth the texture of the skin on the hands.
- Intense pulsed light or IPL therapy to support collagen regrowth and treat dark spots on the hands.
During a hand rejuvenation consultation, your medical provider will give you an idea of the results to expect and will suggest the treatments that work out the best for your skin texture and budget. While some hand rejuvenation treatments can be done together, other treatments are best done individually, or over several sessions. Most hand rejuvenation treatments are minimally invasive and require little downtime.
