Your face is not the only place that will belie the passage of time. The hard-working hands also suffer the effects of aging, with the appearance of age spots and thinning skin that makes the veins on the back of the hand protrude. At Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics, we offer treatments specifically designed for the hands to reverse telltale signs of aging and create a plumper more youthful appearance. Through natural rejuvenation, you can turn back the clock on your hands with results that are both natural and beautiful.
Fat Transfer Basics
The skin on the back of the hands begins to thin over time, due to sun exposure and a loss of collagen in the underlying structure of the skin. As the skin thins, the veins on the back of the hands become more prominent, giving hands the aged, bony appearance. By providing support to the skin’s structure, we can effectively create fullness to the back of the hand and make the vessels look less visible.
While dermal fillers can be used for this purpose, fat transfer can offer a more natural, long-lasting result. With this procedure, fat is removed from one area of the body, such as the abdomen, hips or thighs. The removed fat is harvested and injected into the back of the hand in strategic locations to give the hand additional fullness and volume.
Fat Transfer Benefits
There are a number of potential benefits to natural hand rejuvenation:
– Fat is removed from one area, offering body contouring benefits in that area
– Fat is a natural substance that will not lead to infection or an allergic reaction
– Fat transfer is a long-lasting, even permanent solution to aging hands
– The procedure is minimally-invasive, with one week or less of downtime
– Fat transfer can be performed under local anesthesia, reducing risks
In addition to natural hand rejuvenation, Dermacare offers laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) therapies that effectively reduce the appearance of age spots and restore collagen production underneath the surface of the skin. Our professional staff can work with you to help you determine which treatment or combination of treatments will provide you with the best possible results.
Your hands may be showing their age, but the good news is there are options to help you reverse that process. To learn more about our hand rejuvenation treatments, contact Dermacare Skin & Laser Center at our Rancho Bernardo location at 858-943-2443 or our Carlsbad location at 760-472-5088.
