Are you wondering how to stop your hands from aging? Sometimes, despite using sun protection, moisturizers, anti-aging hand creams, and other topical therapies, your hands still look much older than you feel.
Loss of collagen and elasticity and the natural thinning of the outer skin layer (epidermis) can contribute to the appearance of aging hands. Face Forward Medical Aesthetics in Lexington, MA, can help rejuvenate your hands. Whether the problem is volume loss and wrinkles, or age spots and hyperpigmentation, we offer solutions tailored to your particular situation.
Aging Hands Treatments
BBL is a best-in-class Intense Pulsed Light device that helps to initiate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, compounds that provide a supple, youthful, and hydrated hand appearance. The potent light energy breaks up pigmentation and can help restore a pleasing skin tone, improving the look of the back of the hands. BBL can treat age spots, veins, poor skin texture, freckles, skin laxity, and melasma. With BBL, you’ll feel more comfortable any time you have to shake hands or have your photograph taken.
With the aging process, the hands lose their supply of collagen and elastin, resulting in thinner skin and more prominent veins and tendons. Dermal fillers such as Radiesse can be injected directly into the hands to combat many of the most common signs of aging. Fillers can revive the hands’ volume and create plumper, more youthful contours. Best of all, dermal fillers are painless and come with no downtime, so you can be in and out of the office quickly.
In addition to thinning skin and discoloration, aging hands often suffer from sagging skin. SkinTyte can help! This BroadBand Light treatment using infrared energy stimulates collagen regeneration safely without downtime or discomfort. The result is tighter, firmer, more youthful hands with improved contours and a vibrant glow. SkinTyte’s simultaneous cooling system ensures maximum patient comfort during your session. The process takes 30-60 minutes to perform. 4-6 treatments may be required for patients to experience a significant improvement in sagging hand skin.
At Face Forward Medical Aesthetics in Lexington, MA, we will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs. After SkinTyte, you’ll want to make sure you protect your results by using the appropriate sunblock. Prolonged exposure to harmful UV rays is among the chief threats to youthful-looking hands.
