Hand Rejuvenation

What do your hands say about you? Don’t let them give away your age! When your skin starts losing collagen and elasticity, it often shows up first in your hands. The skin becomes thinner, tendons and veins become more prominent, and dark spots may appear. Hand rejuvenation helps treat those telltale signs of aging and help restore your hands to a more youthful state. It is never too late to start taking care of your hands. Our medical and esthetic team recommends these treatments and products to help roll back the signs of aging of your hands.

Adding Volume

RADIESSE® dermal filler is FDA-approved for hands. It is proven to immediately restore volume and smoothness for natural-looking, younger-looking hands.

Restylane Lyft™, the first and only Hyaluronic Acid gel filler for hands, is also FDA-approved. It targets volume loss and makes veins less prominent.

Removing Signs Of Aging

Lumenis ResurFX® non-ablative fractional resurfacing improves the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and age spots on the backs of hands, rejuvenating damaged skin, and encouraging new collagen production, all with minimal downtime. ResurFx is FDA-approved for treating all body areas.

Venus Viva™ is FDA-approved for resurfacing to improve sun-damaged skin on the backs of hands. The minimally invasive NanoFractional Radio Frequency device delivers treatment via SmartScan technology. It supports synthesis of elastin for overall rejuvenation.

Intense Pulsed Light for Skin Improvement on Hands
IPL / Intense Pulsed Light / photofacial, is often referred to as a photofacial and is primarily used to improve brown and red discoloration on the skin. Its uses extend far beyond facial skin. The Lumenis M22 IPL Laser is frequently used on the hands and arms to greatly improve sun damage, and eliminate sun spots and seborrheic keratoses. A small series of IPL treatments can provide a more even skin tone to the back of the hands.

Combination Treatments
IPL is frequently used in conjunction with lasers that improve skin texture and produce large amounts of new collagen. A non-ablative laser such as ResurFX can be used immediately following IPL to provide a minimal downtime treatment to address textural changes of the hands. Another combination approach is to use a skin-booster like Radiesse and an IPL treatment, which helps address both the loss of volume on the backs of hands, and the appearance of wrinkles and age spots, for smooth, natural-looking results that won’t give away your age.
