When patients consider the effects of aging, they often only consider the aging that occurs on their face and neck. And while you shouldn’t disregard fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, or sagging skin on those areas, they are not the only features that are likely to experience visible aging. Your hands change just as much and just as fast as your face and neck, and they shouldn’t be forgotten when considering cosmetic improvements.
Youthful-looking hands are those that have soft tissue volume, and smooth, healthy skin. With time, this soft tissue on the back of your hands disappear and leave them looking gaunt, veiny, and older than you are. The skin of the hands is often significantly affected by sun damage as they see more sun than anywhere else on your body and are often not protected with sunscreen or a covering. When the aging of your hands triggers insecurity, consider hand rejuvenation at MD Face + Body.
Just like the face, much of the aging of the hands come down to the loss of collagen. Collagen is the fiber in the skin that is responsible for skin health and it’s ability to maintain its shape, structure, and elasticity. When your skin loses too much collagen it begins to sag and become weak. Micro-needling with SkinPen® stimulates collagen production by triggering the skin’s natural healing processes. Micro-needling makes a series of tiny “wounds” on the surface of the hands to improve its tone and texture.
Injectables have made a name for themselves in recent years by treating facial aging and loss of volume in the face. To address the aging of the hands, the specialists at MD Face + Body offer Restylane®, JUVÉDERM®, or RADIESSE®. The dermal fillers safely and comfortably restore lost volume to the skin, filling out and plumping the areas of the hands where the soft tissue has disappeared. These fillers are made of natural ingredients found in the body and are guaranteed to leave your hands more rejuvenated, natural looking, and youthful for months to come.
Laser treatments, such as BBL™ BroadBand Light and Halo™, provide hand skin rejuvenation while targeting wrinkles and sun damage on the hands. These lasers are minimally invasive and require little to no downtime, making them an easy decision.
Balance is everything when it comes down to an aesthetically pleasing appearance. Targeting one area to conceal your age while leaving another untouched is the quickest way to reveal that your body has been enhanced.
