Aging is a natural process that affects every part of our bodies — and our hands are no exception. The skin on our hands is consistently exposed to the elements and daily wear-and -tear, often resulting in an uneven tone and texture.
Just as our faces reveal the passage of time, our hands can betray our age with discoloration, visible veins, and loose skin. Fortunately, there are ways to restore more youthful looking hands. At WestPort MediSpa, board-certified physician and aesthetic medicine specialist, Dr. Dana Brownell performs hand rejuvenation using state-of-the-art technologies.
Read on to learn how hand rejuvenation at WestPort MediSpa can help restore the youthful appearance of your hands.
The science of aging hands
Similar to our faces, the skin on our hands naturally thins as we age. Sun damage further adds to this aging process, resulting in an uneven skin tone. And most of us don't walk around with gloves on, leaving our hands exposed to the elements all year round.
The volume of the hands diminishes over time, resulting in unsightly protruding veins and loose skin. But at Westport MediSpa, we believe that aging hands are not an unavoidable fact.
A new dawn for hand rejuvenation
Dr. Brownell uses the latest technology and a comprehensive approach to rejuvenate your hands and bring back their youthful appearance. Dr. Brownell uses multiple cosmetic treatment tools that work together to address the underlying effects of aging on your hands.
Phase one: Treating skin tone and texture
We begin by addressing skin tone and texture. Our state-of-the-art Fraxel® Dual treatment eliminates discoloration and unevenness that have developed over the years. This innovative technology targets damaged skin with microscopic laser columns, stimulating your body's natural healing process to produce vibrant, healthy skin.
Fraxel Dual works by creating controlled micro-injuries in the skin, promoting the skin's natural healing process. This process leads to the production of new collagen and elastin, which are essential for maintaining skin's elasticity and suppleness. Over time, the treated area shows improved texture, tone, and overall appearance.
Phase two: Tightening loose skin
Next, we turn to Ultherapy® to naturally tighten loose skin. This noninvasive procedure stimulates collagen production in the skin through ultrasound therapy. The result? A noticeable lift and firmness in the skin, giving your hands a more youthful contour.
Ultherapy works by emitting focused ultrasound energy that reaches deep into the skin's layers. This energy stimulates the production of collagen, a protein responsible for skin's firmness and elasticity. With new collagen formation, the skin tightens and lifts, reducing the appearance of sagging and wrinkling.
Phase three: Restoring volume
After the Ultherapy treatment, we restore volume to the hands using Restylane® dermal filler on the same day. This safe and effective treatment fills in areas of volume loss, smoothing away wrinkles and giving your hands a fuller, more youthful look.
Restylane is a type of hyaluronic acid dermal filler that attracts water to the injection site, thus adding volume to the skin. It’s a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps keep it plump and hydrated.
As we age, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, leading to volume loss. By injecting Restylane, we can replace lost volume and help smooth away wrinkles, giving your hands a rejuvenated look.
