Many patients consider cosmetic procedures to prevent imperfections like wrinkles and fine lines from developing on their face. However, they may not realize their hands need just as much attention. It is a known fact that our hands are the first part of our body to begin showing signs of aging. This is due to them always being exposed. As we age, the skin surrounding our hands can start to lose elasticity and collagen, much like our face does. Dr. Goldschmidt’s hand rejuvenation treatments can provide patients with the results they desire to treat aging hands and crepey skin.
Ideal candidates interested in undergoing plastic surgery for the hands may struggle with one or more of the following concerns:
- Sun damage
- Brown spots
- Prominent veins
- Loose, thinning skin
- Volume loss
- Bony hands
Your Hand Rejuvenation Treatments
Although RADIESSE® has been known to treat facial imperfections around the mouth and nose, it is also used to restore volume and smoothness to the hands. Chemical peels and laser treatments are also an excellent solution for treating aging, or “old woman” hands.
RADIESSE® is an FDA-approved filler that can address wrinkles, volume loss, and bulging veins in your hands. Fillers are typically performed on an outpatient basis and do not require downtime. During your treatment, a small, fine needle will be injected into the treated area, and the solution will smooth out the skin while also restoring volume to your hands.
Chemical Peels and Lasers
Chemical peels and lasers can correct visible signs of aging by exfoliating your hands as well as removing the damaged outer layer of skin. During your chemical peel treatment, the formula will be placed on the surface of your hands as it works to eliminate imperfections like brown spots, discoloration, and wrinkles. Once the chemical solution has been removed, the healthy layer of skin is then revealed.
Lasers use light-based energy to remove the outer, sun-damaged layers of the skin. They may also get rid of age spots and help to stimulate collagen formation that will tighten the skin as well.
Since both RADIESSE®, lasers, and chemical peels are performed on an outpatient basis, they require little to no recovery time. You may experience some mild redness along the treated area following your chemical peel or laser treatment, but this should resolve after a few days.
Following your hand rejuvenation treatment, you will begin to see immediate results. While RADIESSE® and chemical peels can keep your hands looking fresh, the results are temporary. You may need to undergo several treatments to maintain your results.
How to get rid of the wrinkles on my hands and feet?
The hands and feet are often forgotten about when it comes to anti-aging practices. Unfortunately, they are just as susceptible to the aging process. Injectable fillers or laser treatments can minimize wrinkles that develop on the extremities. These procedures restore lost volume and stimulate collagen production for smoother, tighter skin.
How can one remove age or sun spots from the skin?
Unfortunately, age or sun spots can develop on all regions of the body that have been exposed to the sun. Cosmetic surgery and fillers do not affect the appearance of age spots because they cannot address tonal concerns. Age spots are best treated with laser resurfacing. Laser treatments can target areas of excess pigmentation and break them up so that a more even tone is achieved. Chemical peels can also remove unwanted age or sun spots by removing the top layer of damaged skin.
What are the pros and cons of laser skin rejuvenation?
Laser skin rejuvenation can reduce wrinkles and even out pigmentation concerns. Unfortunately, because laser treatments work by disrupting pigment cells in the skin, they are not appropriate for all skin tones. Patients with fair skin are better suited for laser treatments than patients with darker skin tones. The pigment that is already present in darker skin tones may be negatively affected by the laser energy, resulting in worse tonal concerns.
What is the treatment to remove wrinkles?
Wrinkles on the hands are usually treated with injectable fillers like RADIESSE®. Wrinkles develop when the fat and tissues beneath the skin begin to break down and disappear. RADIESSE® instantly adds volume to the hands to restore what has been lost.
How much does plastic surgery for hand rejuvenation cost?
The cost of your hand rejuvenation varies depending on the specifications of your procedure. The price will depend on the techniques used (fillers, lasers, or chemical peels) as well as any anesthetic used to enhance comfort.
How is hand rejuvenation done?
Hand rejuvenation is a non-surgical procedure that involves injectable fillers, chemical peels, or laser resurfacing.
