How to Make Your Hands Look Younger Without Surgery

How to Make Your Hands Look Younger Without Surgery

Skin aging doesn’t just affect your face. As we age the hands lose collagen and fat, making the veins and tendons more pronounced. To add to that, sun exposure causes skin damage resulting in age spots. While the loss of smoothness and plumbness is a natural part of the aging process, there is something you can do to restore youthful looking hands.

At Westport MediSpa, board-certified physician Dana Brownell, MD, specializes in aesthetic medicine and provides the latest cosmetic treatments to help men and women improve their appearance. Like your face, your hands show signs of aging, such as wrinkles, age spots, and boniness. Hand rejuvenation brings back a youthful appearance to your hands and restores your confidence. In this post you’ll learn our approach to combating the signs of hand aging.

Improve skin tone and texture

Over the years, exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays damages the skin. As you age, the hands tend to develop blemishes and spots that make your hands look aged. To address this problem Dr. Brownell uses Fraxel® Dual, the first nonablative fractional skin resurfacing system.

Fraxel works using light energy to break up skin pigments and stimulate collagen production.

Treatment diminishes the appearance of blemishes, reduces fine lines, and evens out your skin tone for smoother, younger-looking hands.

Tighten the skin

Ultherapy® is a cutting-edge skin rejuvenation technology that uses ultrasound to enhance your skin tone from the inside out. The ultrasound waves bypass the surface of the skin to penetrate deep into the epidermis. This provides deep tissue stimulation that triggers collagen production, which tightens and rejuvenates the skin. Results are immediate, in addition to continued results over several months. 

Restore volume

To plump the hands and fill in deep wrinkles Dr. Brownell uses Restylane®, an injectable dermal filler. Restylane is a hyaluronic acid-based injectable that hydrates the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a substance the body produces naturally. Like collagen, hyaluronic acid declines with age.

When injected strategically into the hands, Restylane reduces the appearance of tendons and veins so that the hands look soft, smooth, and plump.

Wrinkles, age spots, and prominent veins on your hands are hard to hide, and now you don’t have to. Feel your most confident self with nonsurgical hand rejuvenation.
