The hands are one of the first areas on the body to show signs of age. No matter how youthful your face may look or what facial procedures you may have, your hands can give away your age. Fortunately, you can avoid this problem with the help of hand rejuvenation treatments at NOVA Plastic Surgery. If aging hands are a concern for you, read on to learn what you can do to improve them.
What Can Hand Rejuvenation Improve?
Hand rejuvenation can improve the common signs of aging skin. This includes:
- Smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles on your hands
- Making skin look and feel less brittle
- Reducing skin transparency
- Eliminating or greatly reducing age spots
Many patients have all of these problems: Wrinkles, brittle skin, age spots, and transparent skin on the hands. The hand rejuvenation treatments at NOVA Plastic Surgery are designed to alleviate all of these issues at once. Most patients benefit from a combination of dermal fillers and BBL (BroadBand Light) therapy for their aging hands.
How Do Fillers Work?
Fillers such as Radiesse and Voluma replace the volume that your hands have lost over the years. The loss of the natural fat layer atop your hand bones can prematurely age the appearance of your hands, but dermal fillers give you the volume needed to recreate a much younger look.
NOVA Plastic Surgery’s providers carefully inject the filler directly into your hands to add volume where you need it. They will then massage your hands lightly to ensure that the product is evenly distributed. You can see the results right away!
How Does BBL Therapy Work?
BBL therapy can rejuvenate your hands in a couple of ways. It can decrease or even eliminate age spots and vascular lesions, which can greatly enhance the overall look of your hands. It also prompts your body to make new natural collagen for long term volume in your hands.
BBL therapy works by sending powerful light pulses directly below your skin. The light can shatter pigmentation, or age spots, and even vascular lesions that may be prematurely aging your hands. Broadband light also works on an even deeper level, as the light prompts your body to start producing fresh collagen. The new collagen acts as a support network for the fillers, and in fact it helps extend your results for longer than fillers alone would.
Who is a Good Candidate For Fillers and BBL Hand Rejuvenation?
If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your hands due to age-related changes, hand rejuvenation may be the ideal treatment for you. If your hands still have plenty of youthful volume and you simply want to correct one small problem like a spot of pigmentation, BBL therapy alone may be enough. As long as you’re in good overall health and are looking for a non-surgical solution to aging hands, hand rejuvenation with fillers and BBL therapy is a great solution.
What to Expect Before and After Hand Rejuvenation
Hand rejuvenation is done on site at NOVA Plastic Surgery. There’s no special preparation needed, and the appointment typically takes under an hour. Your Nova Plastic Surgery provider will prepare your hands with a high-strength numbing cream to alleviate any potential discomfort during the injections. The injections take just a few minutes, and you’ll be amazed to see the results appearing in front of your eyes as the filler adds volume.
BBL therapy is a pain-free treatment that doesn’t require special prep, either. You may feel some warmth from the light, but it’s not uncomfortable. The results of BBL therapy take longer to appear, as your body needs time to process and eliminate the particles of pigment naturally. Over the coming weeks and months, you’ll notice pigment and vascular lesions fading as well as a reduction of transparency in your hands.
