More and more people are discovering the benefits of hand rejuvenation. Our hands can show signs of aging, and sometimes can make us look older than we really are. To comprehensively serve the beauty goals of our patients, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeons offers hand rejuvenation in Renton and Maple Valley.
Most focus on maintaining our face with a combination of short and long term treatments. Unfortunately, our hands are frequently telling our age before any other part of our visible body. We are faced with nearly identical issues in our hands as we do in our face: wrinkles, loose skin, age spots and volume loss. While most patients understand the benefits of facial rejuvenation, the hands are often overlooked. Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeons will help you when other providers may not through our hand rejuvenation treatments.
What is Hand Rejuvenation?
Hand rejuvenation is different for everyone. Depending on the type of aging your hands have experienced, hand rejuvenation may involve a single type of treatment or a combination of treatments.
Types of Aging that Affect the Hands
There are temporary and permanent methods to address volume loss to the back of the hands. These typically include injectable collagen fillers (temporary, lasts 9-12 months) or fat grafting (permanent). Both are minimally invasive and effective treatments to attack volume loss in the hands.
Sun and Age Spots
Sunspots occur in nearly everyone, and they are a telltale sign of aging. Intense Pulsed Light is an excellent treatment option that can be performed quickly, without anesthesia, by our Master Aestheticians in our MedSpa. This typically requires a series of treatments (3-5) to achieve complete or near-complete resolution.
Skin laxity occurs in everyone as we age. Scarless skin tightening can be achieved with ultrasound-directed treatment of the hand skin. This treatment provides lasting skin tightening for 2-3 years in just a single session.
Skin complexion, tone and texture can be improved with chemical peels and microchanneling. Both of these are excellent options for patients looking for the least invasive modalities to provide immediate and near-immediate results.
If you are looking to maintain, prevent or delay hand aging, skin health should be approached exactly as you do your face. This includes a daily moisturizing regimen, Retin-A treatments, retinoids, among other treatments. A consult with our Master Aestheticians are your best resource to guide your skin care regimen for your hands (and your face).
Choosing Your Hand Rejuvenation Options
All of these treatment options are well tolerated by patients of all ages, typically in a seamless single day visit. Whether you are looking for immediate or preventative treatment, our team is ready to help you achieve your goals.
