Hand Rejuvenation

Hands are perhaps the most exposed part of the body to the outside environment, along with the face. While one often protects the face from sun damage, dust, and external pollutants, hands are mostly ignored. Hands are used for a variety of daily works and over time get worn out and age more quickly than other parts of the body. Hand rejuvenation is a cosmetic and therapeutic intervention, which helps slow down or even arrest evidence of aging on the hands.

These cosmetic procedures can help restore the natural glow, fullness, and vitality of the hands. They remove wrinkles, dry spots, loose skin, peeling skin, dryness, and blemishes from the skin. Hand rejuvenation also eliminates pigmentation spots, a common phenomenon as one ages, from the skin. Such hand rejuvenation procedures are performed with care and caution. As one ages, the chances of infection and skin reactions are higher. The dermatologist will examine the nature of the skin and alleviate any possible chances of such adverse reactions before the approval of hand rejuvenation treatments. These treatment procedures include fillers, lasers, chemical peels, IPL and fat transfers.

The procedure

  • In fat transfers, fat from other parts of the body is transferred to the hand using incisions and syringes. Local anesthesia is performed for such a procedure.
  • To remove wrinkles and for smoothening the skin, derma fillers are used.
  • Chemical peel procedure is used to regain the smooth texture of the hand.
  • Laser treatments are performed to even out the protruding prominent veins on the hands and to make the exterior smoother. A diode laser is inserted into the veins for this purpose.
  • Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is used to clear out the dark spots which happen due to overexposure to the sun.
