Dont let your hands reveal your age!
Most of us are focused on the facial signs of aging and are willing to spend time, energy and money on addressing these, very obvious, details. Although treatment of the face is extremely important, our neck and hands are often neglected and usually as equally affected by aging. Other than the head, the hands are the most expressive part of our body. Signing a credit card receipt, displaying beautiful jewelry or shaking hands can send very clear indications of your age and belie the secrets of your facial anti-aging regimen.
Perhaps even more than the face, our hands are exposed to the damaging rays of the sun and we may not have been particularly diligent about protecting then with sun screen. As we age, the skin of our hands looses its hydration and ultimately its elasticity. The soft tissue and fat that was there when we were younger becomes much thinner and frail looking. Just like in our face, a significant loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid in the tissue causes this look. The results are older, skeletal looking hands with dry, crepe paper like, thin skin, with the tendons showing more and the vessels on the back of the hand becoming more apparent.
Dr. Tosoni offers three easy ways to try to restore the youthful appearance of weathered hands and they work together.
The first way is simply by restoring the lost volume of the hand collagen and fat with the injection of dermal fillers such as Juverderm® or Restylane® products. This literally takes minutes to do and the results are instant, painless, very effective and will last between 12-18 months.
The second treatment option is rejuvenation of the skin itself by removing the brown "age spots" on the hands with Intense Pulse Light treatments.
A third alternative is to rejuvenate the hands by both lightening the brownish discoloration and stimulating the natural collagen with Fraxel treatments.
If you would like to give a face-lift to your hands, please contact us for more information or to book an appointment with Dr. Caroline Tosoni at 613-244-5151. We look forward to meeting with you.
