Other than our face, the most visible marker of our age can be our hands. The skin on our hands is frequently forgotten, but those areas show our age through constant exposure to the sun as well as years of daily washing and use. For celebrities on television who have close-ups on their hands, like Martha Stewart or any celebrity chef, having young looking hands can be as important as maintaining a youthful visage. Here are three techniques that we use at Premier Image for rejuvenating hands for our Atlanta area patients:
1. Laser Skin Rejuvenation. This technique uses lasers to remove dark blotches and patches on the surface of hands. While in the past, this method could possibly cause indirect damage, modern laser techniques are finely tuned to stimulate production of collagen and elastin in the skin on a patient’s hands. Wrinkles can be diminished, and the skin itself regains some youthful spring and glow. Lasers also break down the melanin (dark pigment) in those dark splotches so that they fade and disappear, tremendously improving the look of your hands. With laser skin rejuvenation, multiple treatments may be needed.
2. Exilis. A type of non-invasive technique that is used to tighten and firm the skin on the hands, this is a highly modern procedure and is extremely popular for its excellent results. It works by cooling the epidermal layers, targeting fat deposits, and thoroughly firming the layers of the skin. It is quick and many people say it feels like a hot stone massage.
3. Radiesse. This third option involves injecting dermal filler into the skin of hands that may have a sunken or veiny appearance. The filler works by replacing lost structure and thereby smoothing out lines and wrinkles in the hands. Radiesse works like scaffolding under the skin, and simultaneously stimulates natural collagen production. Results can last up to a year or more, meaning fillers are an excellent option for those looking for a best value treatment.
At Premier Image you can have any of these procedures performed to ensure that your hands do not reveal your true age, and remain looking youthful no matter what. For those in the greater Atlanta area, contact us at Premier Image for hand rejuvenation techniques and other cosmetic procedures.
