Over the years, unprotected sun exposure causes age spots that are difficult to camoflauge. The skin of the hands significantly thins as we age, along with the loss of soft tissue and muscle volume making hands appear much older. As a result, prominent veins on top of the hands become more apparent, giving rise to skeletal appearing fingers that look quite aged.
Making hands appear younger is a twofold process. Soft tissue fillers, such as Radiesse®, Sculptra®, or Fat Injections add youthful volume effectively hiding veins and increasing the thickness of the skin. Volume enhancement is coupled with IPL (FotoFacial®) treatments to soften brown spots and provide improved skin texture. The result are hands that not only look younger, but appear more vibrant.
