You will be proud to show your beautiful hands.
Our hand Rejuvenation procedures have been developed to rejuvenate hands that are starting to show signs of aging. You’ve heard it said before: “Nothing shows your age like your hands”.
The hands age in three significant ways:
1. Over time, the skin on your hands can become frail, lax, discolored, or spotted due to chronic sun damage and aging. These problems are addressed using special lasers that reduce brown and red lesions and tighten the skin.
2. The volume of the skin declines with age leaving a “bony” appearance where the tendons on the back of the hand become more apparent. Dermal fillers (the same ones that are used to treat facial lines and wrinkles such as Juvéderm® or Radiesse®) are injected in small amounts, and in precise locations, in order to restore the original volume to the skin resulting in a more youthful appearance to the back of your hands. This must be done artistically by Dr. Cadoux in order to attain a natural appearing result.
3. With age, the veins on the back of your hands often get more numerous. They also become larger, more distended, and more “blue-green” in appearance. These veins can be reduced or eliminated by Dr. Cadoux using Sclerotherapy or Laser Vein Removal.
Your hand rejuvenation program will be designed in consultation with you, and will address any or all of the problems listed above using various techniques.
How many treatments are common for hand rejuvenation?
The laser treatments for discoloration and laxity typically require three to six treatments. The restoration of volume with fillers typically requires one to three treatments. The reduction or removal of unsightly veins typically takes two to three treatments.
When will I see the results of hand rejuvenation treatment?
Incremental improvement will be seen immediately after each treatment.
