Many people notice that signs of aging also show in their hands. Experts at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons say that your hands are similar to your face. Wrinkles and other signs of aging can appear on them. To bring back the youthful look of your hands, you can consider hand rejuvenation. If you want to understand the top benefits of hand rejuvenation procedures, here’s what you should know.
Restores Skin Tightness
Your specialist will use a laser to treat problem areas. The process will remove any imperfection and tighten your skin. The laser reduces fine lines and wrinkles. By the end of the procedure, your hands will look smoother and firmer because of the taut skin.
Brings Back Elasticity and Volume
As you age, you lose the layer of fat in your hands. When this happens, your veins, tendons, joints, and bones become more obvious. Your skin develops wrinkles and sags. This makes you prone to bruising because nothing cushions your hand anymore. With hand rejuvenation, you can get the volume back in your hands. Your doctor can use Juvéderm®, Restylane Lyft® or Radiesse® to make this happen. These products can stimulate the production of collagen and hydrate your skin.
Matches the Results of Surgical and Non-Surgical Facial Treatments
Touching your face is an activity that’s involuntary at times. That is why it is easy to see the difference between your facial skin and the skin on your hands. Most patients who had facial procedures like facelift or Botox® want to have the same youthful results on their hands. If you want the same, talk to your surgeon. Your doctor can discuss the treatments that can target specific areas of your hands. This will ensure that you get a tailor-fit hand rejuvenation treatment.
Eliminates Blemishes and Spots
Aging is not the only factor that causes your hands to deteriorate. Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays, free radicals, and toxins over the years can also damage your skin. Without proper UV protection or moisturization, your hands can develop sun damage, spots, and blemishes. Your specialist can eliminate these problems through hand rejuvenation procedures. Chemical peels and laser treatments are techniques that can remove dead skin cells. They can also remove any damaged skin. The peeling of old skin triggers the production of collagen. This results in the renewal of your hand’s texture, skin tone, and color.
Gives Back Your Confidence
Seeing blemishes, wrinkles, and dark spots on your hands can bring down your self-worth. You tend to wear gloves in the summer and separate yourself from other people. The ultimate benefit that you can get from hand rejuvenation is the rise in your self-esteem. After your treatment, you won’t have to hide your hands anymore or feel embarrassed whenever you look at them.
