Treatments for Aging Hands
At ReNew You MD Medical Spa and Yarish Plastic Surgery, we offer several excellent options for improving hand appearance and rejuvenating aging hands and skin. Most people find that as they age, natural processes and sun damage shows signs of wear on the skin of their hands — that rougher, wrinkled look that betrays age. No matter what the condition of your hands, we can guide you to a treatment that will give the results you need, after a personal consultation with Dr. Yarish and his staff. Contact us today at our Houston or Lake Jackson locations to schedule a consultation and learn more!
BBL, or broadband light, offers a natural, light-based way to erase signs of aging and boost collagen replenishment in both face and hands. The advantage of our Sciton BBL system is its adjustability; there are several programmable wavelengths and adapters to treat aging skin in several locations and for several conditions. Age spots, sun damage, freckles and discoloration on the hands all can be treated with BBL in our Houston and Lake Jackson offices. Age and sun damage on your hands will be targeted precisely, and if wrinkles are also a concern, they both can be treated with different adapters in the same session. BBL works by heating the upper layers of skin, stimulating collagen production and eliminating the tiny damaged blood vessels that cause spotting. It’s a minimal-downtime procedure that allows your skin to look the best it can with immediate results.
Radiesse® is a volumizing treatment, and the first and only FDA-approved dermal filler to treat volume loss in the back of hands — the volume loss that creates that deep wrinkled or aged look. Radiesse is an injection targeted to fill in the backs of your hands with microspheres in a natural matrix that corrects lost skin volume gently and safely. It’s also used as a facial filler, but is the only such treatment that’s also approved for use on hands. Its benefits include restoring that lost volume and smoothness, lifting and filling deep wrinkles and folds, and minimizing the visibility of protruding veins and tendons, as is common with aging hands. Radiesse® provides immediate and lasting results for smoother, natural-looking and more youthful hands.
The eMatrix Sublative procedure uses radiofrequency, or RF, waves in a laser rejuvenation process that treats wrinkles, scars, rough texture, red or brown spots, and irregular skin due to aging. During the procedure, the RF energy is directed onto the skin in a series of matrix patterns designed to boost collagen and growth of healthy new skin cells. Sublative skin resurfacing rebuilds and smooth hands, and is safe for all skin types. The quick laser treatment has minimal downtime and lasts only 30 minutes. Within days, wrinkles and discoloration are substantially reduced for a better appearance and texture of the skin on your hands.
To decide which of these options, or others, may be appropriate for you, schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Yarish, and we can determine an individualized treatment plan to improve aging hands. Contact us today!
