While many men and women are concerned that the skin on their face is showing the effects of their age (or worse, making them look older than they actually are), the face is not the only part of our body that gives away our age.
Our hands are just as likely to make us look older than we are.
And while having a good facial skin care routine is important to have, it is just as important to take care of the skin on your hands.
Popular magazines even have stories focusing on some of our favorite celebrities and the old appearance of their hands. Yet, one of the biggest problems is that many people tend to forget about their hands.
Luckily, there are several cosmetic corrections that can rejuvenate the appearance of your hands and make you look as young as you feel.
What Are Some Issues That Hand Rejuvenation Corrects?
As they age, many women and men suffer from volume loss, loose and sagging skin, and pigmentation issues on the backs of their hands.
The reality is that the appearance of your hands can influence the way your entire body looks.
Because of this, people who suffer from weathered hands try to hide them away from other people. But wearing gloves (especially in the warmer months) and walking around with your hands in your pockets all the time is no way to truly live.
Instead of feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your hands, you can correct the skin on your hands to let you feel comfortable and confident in your own skin.
What Are My Hand Rejuvenation Options?
One of the best parts about hand rejuvenation procedures is that you have both surgical and non-surgical options. While surgical procedures tend to be longer lasting, you can still attain stunning and transformative results with non-surgical treatments.
If you suffer from skin blemishes on your hands (such as dark spots, age spots, sunspots, or pigmentation issues), then laser treatments may be the best choice for you.
With laser treatments for the hands, a high-energy laser penetrates the skin to kill particular skin cells that cause the specific blemish. Forever Young BBL™ and SkinTyte II™ are two safe and effective laser treatment options offered at Westchester Cosmetic Surgical Arts.
Many people suffer from visible veins on the backs of their hands. This can make many people look old and frail. However, sclerotherapy is a non-surgical treatment that injects a solution (Asclera®) into the veins to lessen their unsightly appearance. After your treatment, your hands will look clearer and much more youthful than before.
As we age, we often lose volume to parts of our body. While many people associate this with our faces, such as the presence of sunken cheeks, volume loss in the hands is a prominent issue. Additionally, volume loss can cause loose and sagging skin. However, these issues can be corrected with injectable fillers. Injectable fillers are a minimally invasive treatment option that allows for volume to be restored to give your hands a natural and healthy appearance.
The longest lasting hand rejuvenation option available is fat grafting (also known as fat transfer). For this surgical procedure, unwanted fat is harvested from one area of your body (usually the belly, buttoks, or thigh) through the use of liposuction surgery. This fat is then purified and injected into your hands to give your hands a fuller, more revitalized look and feel.
In the End…
Each of the options above will give you the youthful hand appearance that you’ve been looking for. You can display your hands proudly, knowing that no one is looking at them and judging you or your age by their appearance. You’ll have the peace of mind knowing that you look as good and as young as you feel.
