Hands are one of the first parts of the body to show signs of aging because they receive so much exposure. Sunlight, the elements and the natural aging process all contribute to the development of darkened spots, precancerous growths and a loss of fatty tissue. Often times we address the visible signs of aging in the face but we ignore the hands. Very commonly we hear from our patients that they look and feel great but they complain,”My hands give away my age”.
Q: What are the Hand Rejuvenation Treatments?
Dr. Kagan: For thin, transparent-looking hands resulting from a loss of fat, Dr. Kagan often uses Radiesse. This injectable filler can be administered in the office setting using a local anesthetic. A single treatment provides instant results that can last anywhere from twelve to eighteen months. While treatment is relatively painless and normal activities can be resumed immediately, some patients may experience minor bruising or swelling. Other injectable fillers may also be used for hand rejuvenation including Restylane and Juvederm.
Q: Which treatment is best for me?
Dr. Kagan: During your consultation Dr. Kagan will explain to you goals and expectations of the treatment.
