Your hands are one, if not the, biggest teller of age! Let our Total Hand Rejuvenation Package help with thinning skin, pronounced veins, and sun spots contributing to that aged appearance. You can protect your hands from environmental exposure with gloves, sunscreen, and moisturizer as recommended to prevent signs of aging, but precautions are difficult to follow regularly.
Now in the dermatological world, “turning back the hands of time” is possible with a volume producing filler! Radiesse® hand filler has the dual purpose of plumping the skin and tightening fine lines. This newly released injectable also stimulates the body to produce more collagen which is imperative for skin elasticity. Unfortunately, as we age our bodies produce less and less collagen. With the help of Radiesse® injections, collagen levels can improve over time and may last up to a year or more given the patient.
Next, to eliminate the appearance of sunspots and freckles from UV damage, we use an Intense Pulse Light Laser administered to the backs of the hands. (This laser treatment can be used on any part of the body to treat sunspots and freckles - most commonly the face and chest). It is normal for sunspots to appear more noticeable days following the laser treatment as these hyper-pigmented areas are moving to the surface of the skin before sloughing away entirely to leave behind a substantially reduced appearance of sun damage.
Combined, Radiesse® and IPL Laser technology create the Total Hand Rejuvenation Package! Dr. Greene is a Radiesse® Certified Hand Injector, treating more and more patients as hand rejuvenation procedures gain popularity.
