Few areas of the body are as visible as the hands and after years of sun exposure can result in advanced aging that does not reflect your own vitality. Just as with the face, the hands tend to age in multiple ways including surface changes (sun spots), volume loss, and changes in elasticity. The preferred approach for hand rejuvenation is to eliminate the sun spots with a laser treatment (Broad Band Light) and fat grafting to eliminate the appearance of veins and tendons.
The laser treatment, BBL, can be performed in the office and feels warm, but does not cause any pain. There is no downtime, though we do recommend that you protect your hands from the sun.
Fat grafting is a surgical procedure that requires only small incisions in order to remove fat from an unwanted area (flanks, tummy, hips, thighs) and then small needle pokes in order to gently place the fat into the back of the hands.
