As we age collagen and fat in the hands dissipate, veins and tendons can take on a pronounced appearance, making the hands look bony and unattractive. Loss of smoothness and plumpness in the hands is a natural and unavoidable part of the aging process, but thankfully hand rejuvenation can help those thin, tired looking hands.

The Problem

Hands age no matter what we do. Besides the issues that come from sun damage and neglect, your hands will lose substantial volume in the natural course of aging. Sun exposure can make your hands look older faster, but the larger problem is volume loss. The loss of volume that comes as you get older can make your hands look much older than the rest of your body. Veins become more prominent, tendons show and bones protrude.  Some patients comment they have “skeleton hands”.

The Solution

Now you can improve the appearance of your aging hands with RADIESSE® — the only dermal filler proven to immediately restore volume loss in the back of hands for smooth, natural-looking results that won’t give away your age, But what about sun damage? IPL therapy is the answer to those sun damaged hands. IPL treatments employ light wavelengths that go after melanin that lead to age or sun spots. After your treatment the dark pigments typically come to the surface of the skin and begin to painlessly flake off, revealing the normal skin below.
