For those who want to reduce the appearance of aging, a hand rejuvenation treatment by a professional and certified dermatologist can be extremely effective. While the face is the most commonly treated area, hands are often the first area to show the signs of aging. Some of the most apparent of these signs are sun spots, thin-looking skin and vein exposure. There are a variety of different treatments dermatologists can give in order to help reduce the appearance of these age indicators.
Filler injections are one of the most popular hand rejuvenation treatments as they can drastically reduce the effects of thin, translucent skin, such as visible veins and bones, by plumping it. In a filler injection, the necessary filler is injected directly beneath the skin. The effects of these filler injections are long lasting, up to several years.
Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment
This treatment is by far one of the biggest anti-aging breakthroughs of the decade. Through the fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment, one can drastically reduce the appearance of wrinkles and many other signs of hand aging that result from sun exposure. This treatment works by creating micro-holes in the skin. Through this process, the body’s natural production of collagen is drastically increased for an estimated 8-10 years, which means much plumper and younger looking hands.
Intense Pulsed Light
While this treatment may sound intense, it is very simple. It is extremely effective when treating hand sunspots, pigmentation issues, wrinkles and can reduce the size of pores. This treatment is done through pulsing light of different wavelengths based on the individual's skin pigment and other factors. Because many different wavelengths can be used, unlike a laser, a variety of different problems can be treated with intense pulsed light.
Anyone looking for a hand rejuvenation treatment has a variety of powerful options. Call the OC Skin Institute to set up a consultation with one of their board-certified dermatologists to see which treatment is best for you.
