Are your hands aging faster than you are?

We spend a lot of time worrying about, and taking care of the way our faces look. We use specialized skin care products to cleanse, moisturize, protect and combat wrinkles all in an effort to stave off the effects of time. But we often overlook another part of our body that is prone to pre-mature aging and definitely can make us look older – our hands.

Patients often tell Dr. Nonweiler that they look and feel great, except for their hands. Usually patients do not like when their muscle tendons become very visible. They are concerned about age spots, pigmentation, crepey or loose skin and prominent thick veins.

As we age we lose subcutaneous fat and our skin loosens due to hormone loss, sun and environmental damage. Our hands are always exposed to the sun, environmental pollutants and free radicals. Often it doesn’t occur to us to apply sunscreen to them or treat them with the same TLC that we give to our faces. Hands are especially susceptible to the elements because they have thinner skin that lacks the regenerative properties of higher-density sebaceous glands.

Luckily there is something you can do to give your hands a more youthful appearance.

Anti-aging hand treatments

At Northwest Medi Spa, we combine the latest technology in lasers and fillers to give you back your youthful looking hands without surgery or downtime. During your individual consultation, Dr. Nonweiler will personalize a treatment plan so that your hands won’t give away your age anymore.

Anti-aging hand treatments usually include a combination of Intense Pulse Light Treatment (IPL) and the filler Radiesse. Radiesse is already known for bringing about dramatic results, helping to restore volume and reduce the appearance of even deep lines and wrinkles. Now Radiesse can be used as a hand anti-aging treatment, the first and only FDA-approved injectable to correct volume loss in the hands.
