Hand Rejuvenation at Young Medical Spa
Don’t let your hands give away your age. Over time the hands lose volume and become thin and frail looking, sometimes with unsightly bulging veins. Signs of sun damage like wrinkles and brown spots can also appear on the hands, adding more years to their appearance. Hand rejuvenation treatments at Young Medical Spa® can treat a variety of concerns for smoother, younger-looking hands.
For thin or thinning hands that appear frail, dermal filler injections to the top of the hands can leave your hands looking youthful. Dermal filler products restore volume to the hands, helping to diminish the appearance of bulging veins as well as loose skin.
A fat transfer can also be performed to improve the look of frail hands, adding volume, smoothing away wrinkles, and plumping up areas experiencing volume loss. A fat transfer for the hands involves taking unwanted fat from another area of the body and transferring by injection to the hands for longer-lasting improvements than dermal filler treatments.
For hands that are marked with brown spots, age spots, and sunspots, we recommend IPL photofacial treatments. Photofacial treatments use light energy to absorb and dissolve the pigmentation in the skin to leave the hands spot-free. Multiple treatments may be necessary for optimal results, depending on the severity of the patient’s sun damage.
Frequently Asked Questions about Hand Rejuvenation at Young Medical Spa
How do I know which treatment for frail hands is best for me?
During your consultation, we can determine which treatment – dermal fillers or fat transfer – is best for you and will provide you with optimal results.
Where is the fat taken from for a fat transfer?
The fat for a transfer is typically taken from an area of the body with enough excess fat needed for grafting the hands. We can determine what area of the body that will be during your consultation.
How many photofacial treatments will I need to improve the appearance of my sunspots, age spots, and brown spots?
The number of photofacial treatments you will need depends on the severity of your age spots and sun damage. Typically, four to six treatments provide optimal results, but some patients see noticeable improvements on their hands with just one treatment.>
Does a photofacial hurt?
