Loose Skin, Veins and Spots = Old, Aged Hands
You know... all those hours you spend at the gym and the small fortune you're dropping on facials and dermal fillers? If you're not taking care of your hands, you're still spilling the beans on your age. Because the hands are rarely covered and receive more exposure to harsh environmental elements and the damaging rays of the sun, they usually begin to age more rapidly than other parts of the body. Loss of fatty tissue, less oil in the skin, and less flexibility over time often leaves the hands looking wrinkled, boney, discolored, and veined. Hand rejuvenation uses a series of minimally-invasive protocols to tighten and plump crepe-like skin, reduce the appearance of age spots and camouflage prominent veins. Treatments include:
Exilis Skin Tightening Tampa
Using a revolutionary patented technology that delivers ultrasonic waves and controlled heating to the tissue, skin tightening with Exilis addresses the upper layers of the dermis with ultrasonic waves, which stimulates the production of collagen, a natural substance in the body that can firm and tighten the skin.

Using microscopic treatment zones allows certain Fraxel® lasers to penetrate deeper into the dermis than traditional lasers. This deeper penetration helps to stimulate collagen production, diffuse wrinkling and remove discoloration. Within a week, the surface of your rejuvenated skin has improved tone and texture with a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and a marked improvement in the appearance of any scarring. The result is new, smooth, healthy, radiant skin.
Dermal Fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm or Radiesse
Dermal fillers are used to replace volume that is lost over time. Hyaluronic acid is a component manufactured in our bodies that depletes as we age. Replacing hyaluronic acid is safe and effective in improving volume, texture and in smoothing out fine lines, such as those in the back of our hands. The injected HA then stimulates the production of collagen and elastin so that the skin on the back of our hands look plump and youthful again. Commonly used fillers include Restylane, Juvederm and Radiesse.
If your hands are affected by age spots or liver spots, chemical peels applied to the skin helps age spots disappear and stimulate the production of new skin from beneath. Microdermabrasion is a superficial skin polishing that improves the appearance of aging skin by sloughing off crepe-like upper layers, revealing more youthful skin. Maintenance treatments are required.
Hand sclerotherapy involves a series of small injections into the prominent veins on the back of the hands, causing the veins to collapse, be absorbed by the body and significantly improve appearance of the hands. The results are dramatic and long lasting.
