Your Hands: The First Signs of Aging
Next to the face, hands reveal the most about our age. Throughout the aging process, you may notice your hands seem to change first. Maybe the veins show more, or the skin appears lax and thin. Wrinkles, texture irregularities or age spots and sun spots detract from their appearance. And exposure to the sun is responsible for 80% of skin damage which through the accumulation of time causes spots to grow larger in size and darken in pigment.
The skin on your hands is thinner than your face, making it more susceptible to the first signs of aging. Hands are regularly exposed to the damaging effects of UV light on a daily basis. We use our hands repeatedly throughout the day, exposing them to water and other environmental elements. Factor in decreased collagen production and weakened elastin fibers resulting in a noticeable impact.
How we treat it
Broadband Light Therapy & Dermal Fillers
Using advanced, non-invasive treatments such as BBL and dermal fillers, hands can be rejuvenated. One of the most effective treatments uses Broadband Light (BBL), a laser that restructures the skin of your hands on a molecular level, restoring their youth. BBL works by removing the source of the hyper pigmentation, creating a more even-toned complexion, and introducing heat into your skin, which stimulates more collagen production. With minimal to no downtime, you can expect mild redness and a darkening of pigmentation the day of the treatment. Once the micro crust or pigmentation sloughs, your hands will appear more even and glow.
Radiesse is a commonly used hyaluronic acid based dermal filler. The hyaluronic acid draws water into your skin. The result is a firmer, more smooth appearance. You may experience mild swelling, redness, and slight bruising at the injection site. Bruising dissipates quickly, and we also offer laser treatments to expedite healing.
