If you’re like most people who want to prevent premature aging, you diligently follow a daily routine that lavishes care on your face. You’ve invested in medical-grade products like cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen that are ideal for your unique skin type, and you use them daily. While you’ve likely started to see the benefits of this perseverance in terms of a smoother complexion with fewer facial wrinkles, you may notice your hands are telling the true story of your age.
When you think about all the things you do with your hands every day, compared with how little attention they receive, it’s no wonder issues like thin skin and prominent bones may become more noticeable as the years go by. People often fail to protect their hands from the effects of weather, sun damage, and frequent washing, which results in dryness and textural changes. Fortunately, effective hand rejuvenation treatments are available to turn back the clock.
With age, your skin thins, and your youthful fat reserves become depleted. In your hands, these effects combine to make bones, tendons, and veins stand out. Dr. Indeyeva can use her expertise as a member of the Galderma Aesthetic Injector Network to introduce strategic amounts of dermal fillers into the backs of your hands, restoring volume with minimal discomfort and little risk of side effects.
Fillers consist of hyaluronic acid, a molecule found naturally in the human body. This sugar compound has an incredible ability to attract and retain moisture, which is what makes it such an effective weapon in your anti-aging arsenal. Biocompatible fillers are smooth gel products that come in various consistencies for flawless, natural-looking results.
You can have fillers injected into your hands in a quick, in-office appointment that provides a noticeable improvement with zero downtime. While the results are not permanent, you can maintain them with easy touch-up treatments.
Chemical peels are another non-surgical solution for aging skin that can be equally effective on your hands and face. Exfoliating your hands reveals the younger tissue underneath, while stimulating your body’s natural healing response and improving collagen production.
Dr. Indeyeva will help you choose the best chemical peel option for the issues you’re experiencing, but in general, some of the benefits you can expect include improved skin quality with fewer signs of sun damage.
After a hand peel, you may notice redness and skin sensitivity, as if you have a mild sunburn. You will need to follow all provided aftercare instructions, including keeping your hands moisturized and avoiding sun exposure. Please do not rub or pick at any peeling skin, as doing so could interfere with your healing and results.
