When you meet someone new, do you stick out your hand to shake theirs? More and more often, we hear about patients who don’t feel comfortable shaking hands or wearing that eye-catching jewelry that they used to. Why? Because as our hands age, they lose fullness and may start to look like the hands of time itself.
If you’re uncomfortable with the prominent joints, veins, and tendons that are introducing themselves before you, then it’s time to talk about hand rejuvenation.
Our hands naturally lose fullness as we age, but sometimes our hands go to the extreme. If your hands are showing every vein, tendon, and joint in them, you might be ready to explore rejuvenation options. Dermal fillers might be a great, non-invasive option to help you recover some of that lost youth!
Dermal fillers are injected into the hands in a similar process to facial dermal filler placement. First, the area is numbed so you have the most pleasant experience available. Then, the dermal filler is injected into the desired site. Your physician will then gently massage the filler into place for a natural-looking result! Generally, there is very little to no downtime associated with fillers. You may be asked to minimize the use of your hands for a day or two, to help the filler set up properly. Also, compared to other more-invasive procedures, getting dermal fillers is quite safe for your body and your pocketbook.
Laser Treatments & Chemical Peels
Laser treatments, chemical peels, or microdermabrasion may also help you with the remaining aspects of premature aging on the hands. After your hands are plump again, you may notice sun spots or other signs of aging you’d rather not. Resurfacing treatments can help bring back even skintone and a radiant glow. Depending on your specific concerns, Dr. Ginsberg may recommend a particular treatment for you.
