Have you ever heard the phrase, “If you want to know how old someone actually is, look at their hands”?

It’s true, we put all of the best creams and serums we can find on our face and neck, but it’s the hands that get neglected and end up wrinkly, veiny, bony and covered in sun spots.

What can be done?

Hand rejuvenation is the forgotten anti-aging procedure but one of the easiest and most effective.

If you’re looking for hand rejuvenation in Vancouver, you’ve come to the right place.

First, we’ll look at the skin texture and tone. Chances are you are starting to see some brown spots appearing from years of forgetting to put sunscreen on your hands. Don’t feel bad, we all forgot.

You have several great options for reducing those spots and evening out your skin tone. The most gradual and least expensive are lightening creams. Lytera from Skin Medica, Clarite or Active from SkinTx which contain 4% hydroquinone, are all excellent and you will see about 30-60% lightening results over about 3 months’ time.

These creams won’t do much for the texture of your skin however so if you want to get those results, consider:

IPL ( Intense Pulsed Light): Broad spectrum light and heat “toasts” brown spots, bringing them to the surface and sloughing them off in 4-10 days. IPL also provides collagen stimulation to help with crepe-iness.

OR

Fraxel 1550/1927 Dual Laser: A fractional laser that sends thousands of pinpoint wounds into the skin. The healthy tissue surrounding the micro-wounds calls on collagen to help heal the skin. The treated tissue pushes its way out and a complete peeling of the area takes place and taking the brown spots with it. The skin is left thicker, smoother and more evenly toned.

Venus Viva

A laser-type technology using Radio Frequency (RF) to make the microscopic wounds instead. This is an ablative treatment with only a few days of redness, minor roughness and micro-peeling to deal with. The Venus Viva will help smooth fine lines and reduce redness.

The great thing about treating your hands is if you do your treatments in fall or winter, you can wear gloves for the first week to cover up any darkening or peeling.

Fillers:

Once the tone and some fine lines have been improved, now we look at re-building the volume you used to have “puffing up” under the delicate skin of your hands. You can choose from a variety of fillers, Emervel, Juvederm and  Radiesse are products we most commonly use for bringing back a youthful look to the hands. Radiesse is made up of a gel and tiny microspheres, which are calcium-based and act like a scaffolding under the skin. They will  provide structure as well as  stimulate your own collagen to grow giving long lasting results, up to a year or longer.

Emervel and Juvederm are Hyaluronic acid-based fillers which can absorb more than 1,000 times its weight — acting like a sponge under your skin, drawing and retaining water to smooth and restore lost volume.

Methods for injecting the hands vary, but a popular process is to inject a few large “blobs” into the back of the hand and applying some pressure to spread and manipulate the filler into place. The fillers all have lidocaine built in and most clinics will add lidocaine to the Radiesse which provides a numbing effective and makes the injections much more comfortable.
