Hand Rejuvenation

The hands age and, over time, they begin to show wrinkles, veins and age spots. Laser treatments are used to lessen age spots. A laser ray destroys the cells that make pigment and lighten the age spots. Other signs of aging include prominent veins and crepey loose skin that is treated with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers contain collagen and are injected under the skin to fill-in the wrinkles, plumps the hand, make the veins less prominent and create more youthful looking hands.

Men and women with hands that show sun damage or aging are candidates for hand rejuvenation treatments. Dermal fillers cannot be given to patients with a medical history of certain bleeding disorders or severe allergies. The treatments are not recommended for women who are currently pregnant or breastfeeding.

The cost of hand rejuvenation varies depending on the condition of the hands before the treatment, the number of treatments needed, the type of laser used and the amount of filler needed. Hand rejuvenation can cost anywhere from $2500-$6000.

After a laser treatment, the hand will look pink and slightly sunburned. The skin will begin to peel after 2-3 days and the spots on the new skin will be noticeably lighter. Filler injections will produce immediate results. The most common filler used for the hands is Radiesse and it contains both collagen and calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres.  These microspheres serve as scaffolding for collagen that is naturally produced in the hand. The results of either treatment last over a year.
