Not My Mother’s Hands
Some people’s hands seem to age well before their time. So let’s turn back the clock by addressing the hyperpigmentation, boniness, and loss of elasticity that result from aging and environmental damage. Restylane® Lift filler restores volume. Microneedling diminishes pigmentation and scarring while tightening the skin. And peels restore the skin’s natural luster. In combination with effective skin care, these treatments can have a dramatic impact on the way you view your hands.
Age and sun spots, loss of volume and smoothness
An effective treatment that spurs cellular growth by stimulating the body’s natural wound-healing process, micro needling can help restore a youthful glow to the skin on your hands. It works by creating controlled micro-injuries that trigger your immune system to disinfect wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue from the granulation cells that are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops. Treatments last from one hour to 90 minutes and are not painful (they feel like rubbing an electric toothbrush on your skin), though they do cause mild redness and itching that last from 24-48 hours. Three monthly treatments will yield peak results in about six months.
Peels are simple, but effective treatments whereby we apply a chemical solution to the tops of your hands, which causes the outer layer to peel off, allowing for the formation of new skin that is usually smoother, less wrinkled and more radiant in appearance. They can reduce fine lines treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging. They’re also used to improve the appearance of mild scars and reduce age spots, freckles and other dark patches that can make your hands look older than the rest of you. Depending on the type of peel you require, results and recovery time can range from immediate to several days.
Hand Renewal Treatment
An ideal, result-oriented treatment for beautiful-looking hands, Hand Renewal Treatment is offered as both an add-on and standalone therapy to revive skin that feels rough and looks dull. Treatments are recommended once a week for one month, and every 4-6 weeks thereafter. Note, Hand Renewal is equally effective at rejuvenating tired, worn feet.
An effective way to look younger without surgery or long recovery periods, dermal fillers restore volume to your skin – smoothing wrinkles, softening creases, and improving facial contours. We use proven products such as Juvéderm®, Restylane® and Sculptra to improve facial contours, smooth brow furrows, restore volume under the eyes, soften nasolabial folds, rejuvenate hands, plump the lips and more. Treatments take about 30-90 minutes depending on the area addressed, and can cause mild-to-moderate swelling and bruising for three to seven days. Results are visible right away and can last for several months to several years.
