When we think of the visible signs of aging, attention often turns to our face. Many times, however, it is our hands that betray us. As part of the natural aging process, the skin of your hands loses the volume and soft tissue they had in your youth. Their exposure to the environment and harmful UV rays only exacerbates the problem with sunspots and thin, crepey skin.
Since much of your anti-aging efforts may center around warding off the signs of aging on your face, your hands may be forgotten until they begin to appear bony and gaunt. Wouldn’t it be lovely to have an option to restore the youthful appearance of your hands? The experts at La Fontaine are skilled in the art of hand rejuvenation in Denver and with just a few short steps, your age can be your own little secret once more.
There are two factors that come together to betray your true age on your hands: a reduction in the amount of soft tissue of your hands and the sun exposure that affects the skin of the hands. This creates a visible prominence of veins and tendons, and a loss of skin tone and texture along with sun spots and thin crepey skin. Hand rejuvenation uses a combination of therapies to restore volume and fullness to the hands, while addressing the less-than-desirable texture and sun damage.
Hand rejuvenation utilizes a combination of injectable dermal fillers or natural fat grafting to restore volume and fullness. Second, light therapy can be used to remove age spots, sun spots, and revitalize the appearance of the skin. Laser skin resurfacing may provide another alternative for revitalize the appearance of your hands as a final step.
Injectable fillers such as Radiesse and Restylane Lyft may be injected beneath the surface of the skin to restore the youthful fullness to your hands. These hyaluronic acid-based fillers will plump the skin of your hands, so the gaunt, bony look is a thing of the past.
Fat grafting uses fat from your own body to provide lost volume from your hands. During the process, fat will be harvested using a syringe from another area of the body with an excess. It is then purified and strategically injected into your hands to provide natural plumpness that lasts.
Finally, the skin of your hands will be revitalized using light therapy or laser skin resurfacing to improve skin tone and appearance. During laser light therapy, powerful light energy is delivered to the surface of your skin, breaking up areas of over-pigmentation such as sun spots and age spots. The light further acts to stimulate the production of collagen in the months ahead.
With laser skin resurfacing, intense laser energy works to restore and rejuvenate the complexion of your hands, smoothing lines and wrinkles, causing areas of pigmentation to be a thing of the past, and producing an even, youthful skin tone. The skin of your hands will be smoother, with a significant reduction of lines, wrinkles, age spots, and sun spots. Your hands will once again appear youthful and healthy – with the skeletal, discolored look gone.
