Aging Hands (HAND REJUVENATION)

Because our hands receive so much exposure, it is one of the first places to start showing visible signs of aging.  Natural aging, and exposure to sunlight, causes this appearance.  The more common visible signs of aging include darkened spots (age spots).  A loss of fatty tissue also occurs, making our hands look bony.  Hand rejuvenation treatments can help restore the hands to a more youthful appearance.  Various treatment options are available, so one treatment or a combination can be used to help achieve a look that patients desire.

There are various types of hand rejuvenation treatments.  All of these options possess their own set of risks, benefits, costs, and techniques.  The most common include:

Chemical Peels: When these chemicals are applied to the skin, it causes age spots to disappear while tissue appears less transparent.

Laser Skin Resurfacing: Through short bursts of laser light, unsightly veins and dark “age” spots are gently removed from the skin.
